Summary: card installs easily and boots up without problem using xp, also has useful monitoring software. Fast and excellent under priced powerhouse. Stock fan and base plate prove more than adequate to keep card fairly cool under load. Has 3 ways to hook up to monitors, LCD TV's (or Plasma), the most useful of which is the HDMI port. WOW, How cool is that, most cards cost 2 or 3 times that much before they come with HDMI, and this also has the VGA and Digital outputs.
