Summary: I bought 2 of those for a work PC (no gaming, no crossfire), to have triple-head setup (no, even though it has 3 output, that is, DVI, VGA and HDMI, you can only use 2 outputs at once. That's a limitation of most of those cards anyway). I needed a card without extra PCI power connector, and taking less than 35 watt (My Optiplex 790 have PCI-E connectors rated at 35W max). So far, it's doing it's job. I can also play HD content without any problem.
Pros: - Silent, fanless, - Low-power, no extra PCI power-connector needed., - Does the job for a work PC
Summary: I purchased this video card to replace a card with a broken fan. My motherboard has a 1.1x16 PCI-e slot. Even though this is a PCI-e 2.0 card, it worked fine right out of the box. I use windows XP with sp3.
Summary: I purchased the video card when I couldn't get sound from the Display Port that was integrated in my HTPC (desktop) using a Display Port to HDMI cable. Even with a 3.5mm to RCA cable going from the sound card to the TV was not able to carry sound. I knew the issue was not with the Display Port to HDMI cable as it was able to carry sound and video from a laptop that also has a Display Port.
Summary: This is a surprisingly good video board at a low price. The dual DVI outputs easily support my 2 monitor extended desktop, while the HDMI output lets me send a movie to the TV while using a DVI monitor independently. AMD stands without peer for providing state-of-the-art drivers for Linux, Mac and Windows systems alike.
Summary: I use these in my small form factor WMC HTPCs (Dell OptiPlex 960) and have had no issues with over heating or performance. It does come with a low profile bracket which I needed. I have a 70" LED hooked up via HDMI and both picture and audio quality are excellent for HD content without any overclocking. SereneScreen's Marine Aquarium 3 looks absolutely stunning.
