Summary: This card is very nice; however, low profile is slightly misleading as others have mentioned. I had to bend one fin on the heat sink to get it to fit. Very pleased with the performance thus far.
Summary: Bought this to run in an ASUS based HTPC that had an AMD FX with the built in video that wasn't performing well with streaming HD or Blue Ray playback. The video is much better with this installed and it's not generating any heat in the case and of course no noise. The Windows experience went down for video compared to the processor based video but it performs much better for my use - no jittering, better color.
Summary: I found several sites that said this item could be used with a mini computer housing. In fact that is not true. It does not even come close. Be aware of that limitation. I did use it by relocating my hard-drive to outside of the box and then installed the card. It seems to work as advertised and has not created a heat problem yet.
Summary: Over the years of building computer I discovered that Asus makes great products. I love Asus motherboards and their graphic cards work extremely well also..Fanless video cards are they way to go. Low profile fits about any case on the market. I am not a gamer but Asus graphic card meets all my needs. I like Geforce cards over ATI cards. For some reason Linux always has a driver that works great with Gforce cards.
Summary: I used this card to rehab an older emachine ET1810 for a school age child to use for video streaming and playing Minecraft. This card replaced an onboard video with an nVidia 7050 chipset with an Intel E5800 cpu running Windows7 Pro and 3gb of DDR2 800 ram will push a 1080p signal to a 42" LCDTV with an intel E5800 cpu running Windows7 Pro and 3gb of DDR2 800 ram perfectly with a max 78% CPU load.
Boosts a 2005 built (Pentium D 3.0Ghz) PC running Windows XP to play Blu-ray.

Summary: I have a very old entertainment PC that I use to run BeyondTV. Based on some research, I thought that getting hardware acceleration for AVCHD would be impossible in Windows XP. This was not true. I installed this video card along with PowerDVD BD Edition that I got with my Buffalo Blu-ray drive. All the software that came with this graphics card runs on Windows XP Service Pack 3 without problems.
Summary: This is not a high end gaming card but works great for casual games. Bought this for my son's computer playing Minecraft and Cube World. It improved the game appearance and he is happy. Also plays on Low to Medium Settings: Borderlands 2, Diablo 3, Fall out 3, World of War Craft, Torchlight 2, and Elderscolls Online.
