Summary: We had a workstation here having issues running CAD and CATIA in that there was a delay in the graphics updating on screen. Those machines had a different brand of card in them and so we decided to try out the 600 series card.
Summary: Great card, no major issues. Runs smoothly, but only gave a 6.6 / 8 in the 'Windows Experiences Index' (i7 3770k, and an intel SSD w 32 gigs of CL9/1600 ram, a workhorse machine...) Only dislike, I have a monitor with HDMI In and integrated speakers. It runs 1920 x 1200, not the typical 1080p...
Summary: It's been a good purchase 2 weeks into ownership. I had upgraded an older CAD Workstation running Vista with an SSD drive and Windows 7. Unfortunately, the original ATI Fire GL card did not have updated drivers for Windows 7 and the drivers that came with Windows were horrible.
Summary: I picked this up yesterday to upgrade from ATI for 3D work. I have to say that this little card REALLY speeds up the viewport in my 3D application. It doesn't need a 2 power cables like my ATI card did, apparently only uses ~40 watts, and it's fan isn't loud so that's good.

Summary: Long a fan of Nvidia for SolidWorks I settled on the Quadro 600 graphics card for the serious workstation (Dell T5400) I bought on Ebay a year ago. I'm no expert but recommendations were for 1 Gig of video RAM versus the 128 Meg ATI FireGL I currently had - on which Pro E crawled.
