The driver crash and recovery issue every 36 hours or so when pc is idle, and it doesnt really matter what you're doing it can happen during surfing or during game and even when your not using the pc, it's only a matter of time..
Driver issues like crazy (AMD cards and drivers have their issues, but I found the problems to be more severe on the nV cards - with the 320 series driver I had some desktop (2D) crashes/driver resets for no apparent reason as well) and absolutely rubbish reference designs in combination with all too aggressive power management caused major issues. (Crashes in SC2, Bioshock Infinite, World of Warcraft, World of Tanks etc. every hour of gameplay or so. A hundred crashes in a months ownership of the 660Ti earned it an RMA.)
Here's hoping they get their *bleep* sorted, good luck with your card!
I've seen more instability with 2D acceleration than I have with game performance (video acceleration, browser acceleration, etc).

Yeah at least with games everything is pretty much smooth, there are still some bugs to fix here and there mostly vsync related.
I also have bugs when browsing but only in IE and on certain sites I get the not responding black window especially with sites loaded with flash.
No problem in chrome what so ever in any driver though..
Thanks man I appreciate it, and like I said before the next whql is nvidia's last chance to make things right.
If the next driver will suffer from the same major issues I'll probably return my card and regretfully go for amd...
I've had far less issues, even if it's not all peaches and roses with the AMD card. It's (7970GHz) running hotter (compared to both the 570 and the 660Ti) due to it being more power hungry, meaning a marginally higher power bill, and either a larger and/or noisier cooler or simply a hotter running card, and thus PC) for example. (Current rig it's in, by the way; Link.)
But all in all, I don't regret going back to AMD (been running nV ever since I had a GeForce 6600GT - 5-6 cards in my main PC since then) for one second.
Now if they'd only step up their CPU game so that Intel would have a competitor for that scene as well... that race is probably already lost though, sadly. :/
7970 Ghz is a model?
EDIT: Ahh yeah it is, damn personally if I was in charge of advertising regulating bodies I would fine AMD for the blatant naughty naming there.
Ghz suggests fast processing, which it doesn't really do that much at the most 1.05ghz.

Yeah well I dont expect everything to be perfect but tdr issues are major for crying out loud!!
But it's good to hear at least amd drivers doesnt suffer from it.
