Lasted 4 months

  • Pros: Quiet - duh - it's fanless.
  • Cons: After about 4 months, this card would (apparently) overheat and cause my HTPC to lock up. I'm sure it's this video card because all I did was put the old video card back in the system and all is well.

Does what I need

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: This gpu was part of a small HTPC overhaul... It replaced a 6600gt with a dead fan (90c+)! I also needed HDMI so this card was a great replacement for playing 1080 video and gaining an hdmi port. 4.1 aero and 5.5 gaming WEI scores. Very satisfied with Asus quality.
  • Pros: Silent (no fan), Cooler than most no fan cards, plenty of pep for just playing HD video. Just make sure you are paired up with a dual core or better cpu (1080 video seems to be just as much CPU intensive as GPU)
  • Cons: Takes up the pcix slot plus an additional PCIe x1 slot leaving me with only 2 pci slots but I'm glad the heat sink is as big as it is being fanless.

Not a Fire-breather, but very close!

  • Summary: If you're looking for a video card to drive the very latest in PC games, then keep looking. If you need a robust, overall video card for web surfing, videos, and light gaming without breaking the bank then you've found it.
  • Pros: Quiet, no cooling fans to go bad. Easy to install, software package had no ATI type hoops to jump through. Configuration was a piece of cake.
  • Cons: NOT a hardcore gamers video card, but deals with normal desktop games like AoE very well with no break up or lags.

Careful with Dell computers

  • Summary: This was perfect for an office computer where we frequently use Skype and Hulu. Hulu looks great on this card!
  • Pros: - Silent. - Worked the first time. - No overscan problems on low-end Vizeo TV (unlike Radeon video card.) - Worked in 1080P no problem. - Audio over HDMI worked perfectly.
  • Cons: Didn't fit in my Dell computer because the bracket takes two slots. Hard to take off the bracket completely.

Does the job and is quiet!

  • Summary: Finally nVidia got their act together and included audio integration on their HDMI Capable Video cards. I have had challenges over the years with 9600 GSOs, 8400GSs, along with other nVidia cards that would only support Audio over HDMI via a S/PDIF.
  • Pros: 1. "Silent" 2. Integrated Audio (Finally nVidia got it right) 3. Low Power Consumption
  • Cons: 1. Rather weak GPU
