Summary: Inexpensive and capable, I now have awesome graphics on my Linux home box. It comes with a half-height slot cover, darned convenient. One problem on Arch (a cutting-edge distro, compared to Enterprise Red Hat and such) is it refuses to blank the screen properly, but I have not hammered on this problem, I simply turn the monitor off when not home. Pro-tip: check your distro to find out how to enable 'Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"' to really amp up performance.
Summary: I purchased this card for an older computer that I had just upgraded the operating system to Windows 7 Professional. I needed a card that would support the Windows Aero features in Win7. I did not want to purchase an extremely expensive card, since this older computer is a second computer and is not used daily, except as a music server to stream music ripped and remastered on the hard drive to collective independent music systems throughout the house.
Summary: Easy install. Satisfactory control options. For a basic card for some higher impact colors this is a good deal. limited monitor configurations , have had installed for 2 months now and have had no issues.
Summary: Did not expect too much and was really hoping to extend the life of an old Dell Vostro 220s. First, it vastly improved the guality and frame rate when streaming movies. I play some games on it; World of Tanks; and get about 70-100 FPS at low graphics setting. On medium I get less than 24 FPS and moves like molasses however the graphics quality is amazing, unfortunately it is unplayable at that setting.
Summary: for a low-profile computer, for my church, to run children's church videos. It is very hard to find low-profile cards with enough oomph to handle videos. This one works well and was the right price.
