This video card works great

Summary: I needed a good low profile card for my gateway P4 running windows 7 and this card did the trick, the onboard card was outdated and drivers for windows 7 weren't available, so I got this card as an upgrade and I'm glad I did.
Summary: Had this installed in my Dell Dimension 4700 and watching a movie on my Samsung HDTV within 30mins! Installed, downloaded latest drivers from ATI, set everything up in Catalyst Control Center, restarted my computer and... BAM! Watching a movie! Easy as a microwave dinner! As other reviewers have mentioned, I *also* bought the 512mb card, but in the Catalyst Control Center hardware info, it actually shows more .... 1535mb! NO COMPLAINTS on the (accidental?
Summary: I was looking for a video card which would work for Linux. The card EAH4350 SILENT is fully functional. The only problem is that the enormous heat sink covers up a regular PCI slot (in addition to the PCIexpress where the card is plugged in). Of course the card needs to be cooled somehow; it is unlikely that the CPU fan helps cooling, because the card's PC board pretty much prevents circulation to the heat sink.
Good card for HTPC, don't expect too much out of it though

Summary: System setup: AMD single core 2.19 GHZ 2 Gig of ram used for HTPC. Olivia 720P hdtv 37" Originally, I had a 256 MB card with a traditional fan. Worked OK until I tried streaming Netflix and playing HD content off a camcorder. I thought a new video card would fix this. After buying and installing this card, Netflix worked somewhat better (through Boxee), the audio sounds great through the HDMI connection to my home theater setup, but the video quality through Netflix was...
Summary: This is a good video card except the drivers that come on the CD for it are complete junk. On Windows XP Media Center Edition (32 bit) the drivers that were on the CD caused the video card to freeze up and the computer became unusable. Throw away the CD and go to the ASUS website and download the latest drivers they work great. ------ On another note the heat sink on the video card is a bit large compared to other video cards in this class.
Check the dimensions first to see if the heatsink will fit your build

Summary: I'm sure the card would have worked well as the other reviews indicate. Unfortunately for me it was a bad fit for my motherboard and case. Notice that since it's designed to be low-profile the heatsink is placed very close to where it will go into the PCI-E slot, and sticks out pretty far in the back. This meant that once inserted into my motherboard the card's heatsink sat flush right over my southbridge heatsink, so that they were actually touching.
Summary: My previous card stopped working. After a tiny bit of research on cards that would work in my computer, I selected this one. I'm not a gamer. I do basic computing. I chose this card because of the HDMI, AVI, & VGA outputs. Plus -- no whining fan on the video card. Two cards ago, in a different computer, I had a card with a fan that drove me nuts. I previously used a VGA output to go to my LCD monitor and an AVI to go to my older Sony 42" TV.
Silent, cheap, beware HDMI audio popping sounds (but can be fixed)

Summary: Pros: Low cost, silent, has HDMI output. Cons: Headache to update the driver from the version on the CD to the latest version from website. I suggest that you do not install the driver from the CD and directly use the latest driver from ATI's website. When upgrading the driver, there can be many install issues (install doesn't run, you need to update .net distributions, etc). Other thoughts: I was having issues with popping sounds coming out of the HDMI audio.
Summary: I bought this video card only for multiple monitors for working. Install, setup and configure in minutes and it worked like a charm with no noise at all. Great price for an excellent video card.
The item was defective or not compatible with my pc

Summary: The video card looked nice but my pc wouldn't boot up with the card installed. I tried this and that several times to no avail. I had to return it. The return service was great, though. It was a quick and pleasant process.
