Summary: Um, the only thing is that if your considering this card, make sure you have a 2.0 slot, because preformance will improve..
Pros: It's quiet, pretty slim(low profile, of course it is), and lol it goes perfectly with my computer seeing as how my motherboard is an ASUS motherboard. It's in a standard PCIe x16 slot not a 2.0, and it still does everything I wanted. I can play games like Just Cause 2, DiRT 2, or EVEN CRYSIS! lol
Cons: Not too much of a downer, but I can actually hear this card not much, but enough lol. My last gaming worthy card was a GeForce 9400GT and I did hear a peep from it. Other then that no con's so far.
Summary: Overall a bad card. Had to jury rig the video connection for my case(Gateway sx2800-07). Over heats and shuts down my computer playing something as simple as Hoyle Card Games 2010. The fan noise is so bad that I shut down my computer when not using it.
Pros: Improves graphics for gaming
Cons: Runs way to hot. Noisy. Didn't fit in my case correctly.
Summary: Don't buy this card expecting to play the newest games at anything past 1360X768 with low to medium settings. Get a newer card if you are a gamer that needs top-notch graphics. For $70 though, you can't beat it. Between this and my onboard 8200, I run three monitors at their full resolution.
Pros: I bought this card to play older games like Left 4 Dead and Bioshock on a 32" 720p LCD monitor. For this, it works great. Besides a few strange, but easily fixable annoyances I've never had an issue with this card. I bought mine at a different site so maybe Newegg had a batch with bad fans or som...
Cons: For some reason watching Hulu videos would hardcore crash my desktop to the point of not responding to ANYTHING. A quick trip to the Nvidia website to get the latest drivers solved the issue.
Summary: The card was a great card while it lasted, but after ten months of admittedly heavy use, it failed. Fair enough. I am still currently in the process of cashing in on the warranty, and apparently, they can't find the card in their system.
Pros: Good card, till it went down on me
Cons: ASUS actually hung up on me while trying to cash in on the warranty
Beware of excessive noise & non-existent ASUS support

Summary: After 8 years of computer component purchases from Newegg totaling over $6900, I never dreamed the day would come that I would have to make a 1 egg rating for something I bought here.
Pros: Works great in a low profile HTPC setup when watching videos @ 1920x1080... until the fan starts dying & then it will make a shop vac sound quiet &/or will start overheating, causing the system to crash. Yes, that is the best I could come up with for a "pro".
Cons: Fan was a little noisy from the start, but started getting extremely loud in the past month.. to the point I can hear it anywhere in the house, even with the TV & 2 alienware systems running at the same time with their fans on high. I contacted ASUS for service/replacement & filled out the proper...
Summary: The problem with heat people are having is not because of the bad fan (aside from the severe cavitation effect), but because of the case airflow. I'm running a Rosewill CHALLENGER case with 3 fans, and under severe load (running games that this card shouldnt; Borderlands, Crysis and Warhead, etc.
Pros: Decent graphics, amazing buffer, good heat dissipation(see other thoughts). Looks weirdly awesome.
Cons: Not that powerful for price, was a bi*** to get working. Drivers on CD work better than the newest drivers. I'm an ATI fan, and this was the only card they had in the store... Sold out all the ATI cards XD
Summary: I've chosen this car because of thin compact design which is rare for low profile cards. Would fit in my Dell Optiplex 755, but this fan screws everything up. Asus has should been though more how to choose quality fans.
Pros: Good picture and sound quality through hdmi, Easy to set up with drivers from Nvidia website, Compact design doesn't take two slots.
Cons: The fan makes awful noize!! can't even take it no more, hate this card! Even it spins all the way, the heatsink remains hot. Reaches temperature 80-85C in load. The heatsink design could be better for heat reduce purposes. I couldn't find driver for Windows 7 64x on supplied CD and wouldn.t sugge...
