Summary: I have a high performance workstation that lacked any kind of dedicated graphics and had a proprietary PSU. With this in mind, I needed a graphics card that offered enough performance for basic video rendering, autocad, and moderate gaming that fit in a X8 slot and required no additional connectors.
Summary: Purchased two. One was installed in a computer with an AMD processor and 64-bit Windows 8.1. This did not work well and I had to remove it. The other was installed in a computer with an Intel i7 processor and 64 bit Windows 7 and that combination works well.
Summary: This card works perfectly. I use it for print images as that's what I do and 200mb files are processed quickly and silently. Totally stable. There are better specs for sure, but I am unconvinced that they will do it better.
My daughter plays Minecraft on maximum settings with this card.

Summary: It lives in a Core2 Duo homemade PC that still has some life left in it. This graphics card + another 4GB of RAM saved me from buying a new PC. My daughter plays Minecraft on maximum settings with this card.
Good Graphics Card for Silent PC Multi-Screen Functionality

Summary: For the silent computer, this card works better than its GT610 lower brethren. Not only is it sometimes "4x faster" on some graphics operations, as stated on the box, it's shorter-more compact-overall than the GT-610, so it fits better into more computer cases!
