Pros: Didn't damage my motherboard.
Cons: The pinout for the internal usb header in the manual is backwards!
Other Thoughts: I was worried when the manual showed a picture of the card with the usb internal cable hooked up one way on the cover, but specified the opposite way in the diagram inside the manual. I hooked it up per the diagram, since I figured the photographer just connected it randomly. The only result I got was a burning smell from my keyboard.

Pros: Silent, heatpipe cooler, doesn't block adjacent slots, Vdpau support. The heatpipe is above most adjacent cards, so hopefully it won't cook them.
Cons: Very tall.
Other Thoughts: Don't know how this is for gaming. It's probably overkill for my use. I am using it under Linux with the Nividia proprietary drivers . Vdpau video acceleration in mplayer means video playback used almost no CPU.READ FULL REVIEW
