Great budget card - awful driver conflicts

Summary: I purchased this card solely to give me the ability to economically drive a third monitor - and it will do that just fine (as will any) with the bonus of not making a ton of noise and costing more than a few quid. By far my biggest issue was with the installation of the drivers. I've added a third monitor, with the first two running from the graphics on the motherboard and the card driving the third one.
Summary: I bought this Graphics card to revamp and upgrade an older computer. I installed it into an Asrock motherboard and connected it to an old Dell monitor. It fired up first time. I installed the software disc, ran it and wham bang thank you mam, everything in and working. That was the easiest, best and quickest install of any hardware or software I have had, for quite sometime. The graphics quality are great and things work so much smoother now.
Summary: A cheap graphics card for 2 monitor display, that's what I was after, nothing fancy. Except, I needed it to be absolutely silent!! Now, put those two things together and this graphics card fits the bill rather nicely. Also, for a silent card it is only 1 card width which is far more useful than the 2 width silent behemoths that seem to abound. I popped it in, fired it up, loaded the Catalyst software and hey presto it all worked fine.
Summary: This is a budget card. It is unsuitable for harcore gaming but it is ideal for a media PC that is used for light gaming. It can run the likes of Sims 3 at full settings aat 1440x900 resolution without much trouble but struggles with the likes of Fallout 3. Summary-Love it to bits. Its perfect for me but dont get it if you are looking for a serious gaming card on a budget.
Excerpt: è una scheda a raffreddamento statico (senza ventolina). Quando viene montata su un tower, l'aletta di raffreddamento resta dalla parte di sotto, il che ostacola la dispersione di calore. Dopo pochi minuti di funzionamento infatti non è più possibile toccare le alette di raffreddamento. Aggiungendo una ventolina la temperatura torna a livelli accettabili. Quindi tenetene conto, se non volete che la scheda "muoia" dopo poco tempo.
