Pros: It runs quiet. I don't hear it and like most cards, it fits comfortably and this one was easy to instal. It's fans can get close to other hardware but that's an issue with any device if you don't have a spacious chassis (which I do, fortunately)
Cons: 1: It runs hot. The software it comes with lets you monitor its use, and even under casual use (compressing a video from FRAPS to MP4), it ran in excess of 70 centigrade.
2: It crashes. Twice daily for almost a year, the video card stop working. Sometimes it starts up again with a popup stating 'Nvidia drivers have stopped working and have successfully recovered', or the PC will just freeze up completely and one has to hard boot. The drivers are up to date.
Other Thoughts: For the money I was enticed by the specs of this device. Though after a month of operation I had wished I had purchased the 560, for $50 more.
I'm almost through with Nvidia for a while and might want to check out gigabyte or AMD.
