Worked with 280w PSU - HAS LARGE HEAT SINK (read full review)

  • Summary: This went into my own Dell C521 which is serving as my home theater PC. The HDMI connection carries video and audio just fine into my Marantz SR7005 AV receiver. The drivers and software on the included disk allowed an available resolution that perfectly matched the 110" fixed theater screen. **Some things of which to be aware - this card has an oversize, well engineered heat sink which allows it to operate without a fan.

Works great as promised!

  • Summary: Asus deserves to be recognized, up there with Logitech and ioGear for products that work exactly as you expect with minimum fuss. Put together a small cute HTPC box for my bedroom with a $300 Win7 HP 2-core computer and Vizio's well-regarded 42" 120 Hz 3d model. Plugged this card and their Xonar sound card into the HP box, hoped it wouldn't fry the lil' power supply, and ... it works! Quite quiet.

  • Summary: This card installed easily on a Core 2 Duo Win 7 machine. Quiet and cheap but video is still snappy except for major games. No problems whatsoever in almost one month of daily use.

DOA

DeRail, Amazon
5 February 2013
  • Summary: Card not recognized by the the motherboard bios. A different brand nVidea based graphics card and other PCI-E cards were recognized without difficulty. The first contact finger's gold foil was visibly shorter than the other fingers' foil. However it appeared to be long enough to make contact even so, and foil marks indicated it was indeed making contact. Bottom line, one visible physical problem plus whatever was causing the bios to fail to recognize it.

Working great for 6 months

  • Summary: Runs nice and cool. I'm cheap, so I wanted to have a good video card while also not running a race horse. Works great with NVIDIA drivers on Ubuntu and other forms of Linux (but for me - not right out of the box. I had to install them through the command line with: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-updates && jockey-text -e xorg:nvidia_current ).

Quiet and Fast on Ubunutu 12.04

Conor P Klecker, Amazon

  • Summary: I am using the latest NVidia driver for Steam on Ubuntu with this card. It is in a rather older machine, but still solid. It also support vdpau with MythTV which allows me to watch uncompressed 1080p bluray videos at 9% CPU usage. Perfect for your HTPC.

Powerful and quiet

Michael Cole, Amazon

  • Summary: This little addition was for a Media Center PC where the fan was dead on the factory video card. The built-in HDMI was a welcome addition as opposed to the DVI to HDMI converter. Hooks up to the Media Center beautifully. Resolutions fit most any TV settings. Heat is not an issue!
