Summary: We just got these cards for our new computers, and notice a speed change on the 3D portion of Revit 2011. I recommend these Quadro Cards to any body doing serious Revit or 3D work. These are not intended for Gaming but do quite well.
Summary: Home build;Asus P7p55D, I5, windows 7 pro, two 1T Black WD HDD, 4gb ddr3 12800. Not much of a gamer, Mainly video and editing. Works smooth, installed easy, Have not pushed it very hard but have been more than pleased with it's quiet,fast,cool, and it's diverse applications.
Know thy connectors from your video card to monitor first!

Summary: this device is well built and performs well however.. the connectors are 1 DVI and 2 Displayport -- cables alone to match to HDMI or Displayport to DVI are expensive.. not that I would have changed.. but what a nightmare to find and find reasonably priced. Got this card for the CUDA capabilities..
Summary: I am an animator that heavily relies on GPU power. Unfortunately I am not a professional, meaning I don't get paid to do what I love. What is fortunate is that Nvidia has released the Quadro FX series. The main thing about the 580 is that it has the same processing power as the FX 1700.
Summary: I tested this Nvidia Quadro FX580 card with Autodesk Maya 2009 on Windows XP 64. In the viewport the fps does not appear to be faster than any other gaming or professional card but as expected the geometry and the wireframe looks great with very decent antialiasing and no artifacts.
Summary: As mentioned by another reviewer, this card is commercialized by HP for HP workstations, and includes a sticker saying that the warranty is void if used in a different machine. Documentation is sparse, and I there is nothing about the card connectors, especially the two on the board.
Summary: The tag line "by Hewlett Packard" should read "FOR HEWLETT PACKARD ONLY!" This card was purchased to replace an ATI Radion Card that was failing to the point of barely usable. I work with a dual monitor setup and use Adobe's suite of graphics programs and View 7, etc.
