"A would be great card"3.0 starson by bhines5
Pros: Excellent graphic quality
Cons: Driver instability, and lack of stability
Summary: The card is a powerhouse, and has great graphic quality. One of the downsides, and is a great one is that the drivers are not stable with Vista. (32 or 64 bit) I have had this card in both 32 and 64 bit instances of Vista and the driver keeps crashing whenever a game is played, even solitare or hearts which are built in games. For those that jump on power supply this is what I have:
Dell XPS 710
Quad processed Duo 2.4
750W Power Supply
I updated the BIOS, got the latest drivers, and have tried so many installs, and tips from Nvidia's, Evga and Dell's support forums. Nothing helps. New install of OS, trying different memory, reseating the card, very tiring and frustrating for a brand new system and card. I am very disappointed with the card in gaming respect, and the level of support from Nvidia on this. Many others have this same issue with this card with Vista, on all types of different systems and configurations.
I am continuing to try to get this issue resolved, but the card only seems to work correctly in XP.
