This is not a Windows graphics card and the nvidia linux support is not unoffical. I bought two cards because of the support. But during the last half year the driver quality dropped significantly. But there are bugs with vdpau around for over a year that leads to hangs in X but the kernel doesn't freeze. I experience hard crashes/hangs since driver 290.10 on both nvidia cards. So i would say i payed for 2 cards that completely destabilize my system after i upgraded to the latest version. And the coolest thing about this - nvidia knows about the problem and was not able to fix it - 290.10 was released 22. Nov. 2011
