Here is my post about issues with the card, in case you have similar problems.

In Windows, this thing is unbelievably fast. I have cranked all my games 100% and no slowdowns.

@tmack: there's a known problem that could result in the symptoms you describe; this problem should be resolved in the next driver release.
