Nvidia's sneaky little secret unsnarfed@ 2004/10/29
The tolerances on PCIe boards are very tight, and if you bend them, force them at an unnatural angle, teach them yoga, or anything else that isn't strictly in the spec, you have problems. It isn't that NVidia did anything bad, it is just a question of the tolerances of many discrete parts, the case, the mobos, the cards and the bridge can all add up and cause issues. So, we are in a situation where is basically works like advertised, but they don't trust it in the hands of the average mouth breather. I kind of agree with this logic.
