Well my 3D Mark 11 score went up a tiny bit, and no problems so far. I have to say that comparison screenshot tool nvidia has on their site, is the coolest and most helpful I have ever seen.

OK tried it out with Skyrim and Ambient Occlusion set to Quality. I normally hit the cap with my framerate at 60fps on my GTX 570, with AO on I get 45fps avg but it jumps around a lot. Still pretty decent performance but with hiccups every once in awhile. This is Ultra settings at 1920x1200 and the texture pack on.
