Summary: I purchased this video card to use in dual-monitor configuration. Have been using it that way for a year and half and it's been great. It's not used for gaming, so I can't comment on that. Have used it with both Windows XP and Windows 7, no problems. Good buy.
Summary: This card is possibly fine with some other O/S, but with Linux it is absolutely useless. I wasted my time trying every possible tweak and alternate drivers. ATI drivers do not support vertical sync for XVideo.
Summary: I purchased this card in order to enable the Windows 7 (or Vista) Aero feature on an older PC (2006). It does the job; Windows now reports a score of 3.5 for Aero capability, whereas the integrated graphics processor was only 1.9. (I believe that anything over 3 is passing.

Summary: This is a great card for the price: it will amply power most newer generation games at reasonable settings, will process HD video (including Blue Ray) and it will do all of this with low power consumption and very low heat generation.
Summary: I purchased this as a cheap temporary solution for my 50 Plasma TV Media Center PC. Works so well that I never did change it out for a more high end card. HDMI hook up was flawless. Even has software controls over color not found on many higher cost brands. No fan makes it quiet.
Summary: this seems to work fine, except no audio came out of the HDMI output for me - I tried mucking with every setting I could find to no avail - maybe it's not supposed to, but this is why I went with an HDMI output card, to save the extra audio hookup necessary with DVI output
Excerpt: Einleitung & Mein System Die Wahl viel auf die ASUS 3450 Karte, sie war mit 33 € sehr günstig, passiv gekühlt, und im sogenanten "low profile" gebaut - sprich, sie ist nur halb so tief wie andere Grafikkarten, und passt damit in flache Gehäuse, die vermehrt in Wohnzimmern als sogenannte Medien PCs...
Pros: Stromsparwunder, full HD fähig, passt in kleine Gehäuse
