Summary: With this card got Windows Aero score: 3.5 - 4.2 (overclocked) Mother board chip set was just as fast without it. This is the slowest graphics card available. But it does have an hdmi plug. Bought a 0 db Asus Geforce 630 instead, brought Aero score to 5.5 (not overclocked). Much better!
Summary: No fan means no noise. As long as your case has good airflow across the vid card area and you keep things clean and dust-free you won't have cooling issues unless you are trying to overclock. It works great in my htpc.
Summary: I have been running the card around 2 years. I ordered the 512 mb version and received the 1gb version. It is in a midsize tower case. Not used for any gaming, just home office, internet cruising, and HTPC, running a 42" LG tv/monitor at 1080p. It has not given me any problems at all.
Summary: Wow, is this card ever slow. I mean, it's REALLY slow. I can't even watch 1080p videos on my PC without major problems with audio/video sync. Don't even bother with this; buy the 6450 instead. It's about $5 more for twice the performance (at least). Even the Geforce 210 cards are better than this.
