Couldn't find / didn't understand if this was supposed to be solved with 10.10.3 so I just did the upgrade to 10.10.3 since I had the old 8800 GT still laying around as a backup.

I just wanted to let you know 10.10.3 works fine with the standard drivers on an nVidia GTX 660. You can update the CUDA web driver after starting up.
I don't get it then, there are reports of a 650 working with the stock drivers, and this 660, so it can't be the 600 series support dropped. What's the deal? Why is my EVGA 650ti not working with the stock Apple drivers?

Also, MVC, when you say "Very bad idea" (to leave an unused card in a PCIe slot) would you care to elaborate? I trust your experience enough to pull the card out anyway, but I'd like to know why?

I don't have prior experience where leaving something with 1/3 of it's power connected has blown it up, but do you want to provide that?

Would you hook up some of the power wires for a car stereo and be surprised if that created trouble?

It's just not a good idea, aside from having access to the PCIE power of 75 Watts it also blocks air flow. If you have +12 Volts at one end of a circuit and +5 volts at another, you effectively have -7 volts going the wrong way. Clever designers would have a diode to keep that from happening but I wouldn't look at leaving the power that way over a long time as being a good practice.

Many GPUs will halt boot and put a message on their ports that says "connect PCIE power" if they are connected like that. There were several 4870s that created that message even when power was applied. Cindori had a part of one of his apps that did nothing but turn off the "plug in your power cords" message for an XFX 4870.
