Summary: I've had a computer when it was a thin floppy disc and you could only 360,000 bites!! It was dot matrix. We've have come a long way in such a short time. I've never got into graphics until last year I began converting hundreds of VHS tapes and scanning thousands of old still pictures. I got interested in editing videos and pictures and I needed to update my video card. The instructions to install this was simple (it had to be for me).
Summary: I installed this with no problems on my HTPC it significantly reduced the noise and has provided excellent performance. I am using a rear projection TV and I really love the ease of adjusting the resolution to fit the TV. Rear projection TVs tend to over scan when using straight 1920 by 1080 but with the software this issue is easily fixed.
Summary: Quiet, beautiful image, but would like it to be a bit faster. Its fanless, so of course its going to be huge. I prefer the size over the one with fan, I had a few before that has a fan and the first thing that goes out is the stupid fan, in which you can not replace. Give it a 5 star for what it is, cheap and it works.
Summary: Installed this to run a HTPC on Ubuntu 12.04 64 system and XBMC. I have a simple setup and no other sound cards on my system. I consider myself a newbie to linux and configuring video cards. I had no trouble installing the card and configuring it. Worked well once i downloaded the drivers from the NVidia website for linux. had to google how to install them using the terminal window.
Summary: I'm running this on my OLD Gateway GT5625e desktop with its original 1.6GHz Dual Core CPU,2GB RAM, and 300 watt power box. I was running a GeForce 8400 before this and was able to run DC Universe online at an okay frame rate at low settings in 720p.Any other game ran okay and I even tried switching out to a faster Pentium 4 3.2GHz (for $15 in Amazon) but was loud and actually ran a bit worst.I eventually went back to the original 1.6GHz CPU and was able to play some...
Summary: Great little card. Installed easily, I downloaded drivers and they installed without a hitch. No problems with running hot. Enough horsepower to run HD video and moderate gaming. Paired with a solid-state drive makes for a very quiet recording studio PC. Recommended.
Summary: ASUS GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card, ENGT440 DC SL/DI/1GD3 This was purchased to replace a PNY 9800GT. Heat killed the PNY. First, this was a very simple replacement, and the specs are similar. The ASUS 440 , labelled Gt on my box, has no fan, but large cooling fins and 2 heat pipes. Now for the best part, it usually reads 30 to 35Celius, whereas the PNY often hit 80C !!!
Summary: I purchased this card because I wanted something better that the 8400 I had. I am very please with this card. It does everything I wanted, I don't play high end games but it handles the games I wanted to play Anno 2070 and Napoleon Total War. Handles both games without a hitch. The best part is that it is silent. Delivery was fast.
Summary: This is a great little card. I have it in my HTPC. IT improved the stock graphics a ton and even better, no noise! Like others have said, this is a TALL card, it fits fine in my standard mid tower case, and hasn't has a single heat issue even after running a 1080p Lord of the rings extended marathon all day... I simply installed the drivers from the CD, went online and updated them and off I went...
