Cost-effective Video Card Upgrade

Summary: This item replaced the Radeon 4250 that was originally in my Dell Inspiron 530. It plays every game I've tried smoothly. It also works well (with the fglrx driver) in Lubuntu 14.04. I use the HDMI and DVI (with a DVI-HDMI cable) outputs to connect two monitors for extended desktop.
Supplemental : Cards Abilities Are Not Properly Given

Summary: The specs, description and the inclusion of two VGA adapters give the indication that two analog displays can be used with this card out of the box.That is not the case. If you want a card of this GPU type that is low profile and dual DVI + MDP + 1 VGA this card can cover your needs. My 3 egg rating is with the assumption that it lasts.
Pros: I still think the card is of good build quality.
Cons: I have conversed with Diamond tech support and this card is simply not designed to drive two analog displays with the included hardware. If you have or are thinking about getting this card for that purpose a Mini Display port to VGA adapter will be required. Diamond is not supplying me with one to resolve the trouble.
Summary: I have only received 2 of these cards and thus I could have had some bad luck. PCIe v3.0 cards are not cheap right now so the price for the card is solid but the cards and accompanying parts are not up to spec. Take a pass or be prepared to handle it if the card is not functional right out of the box.
Pros: The heatsink is large and the fan is quiet. The image signal must be good since the monitors I have had it hooked up to show a nice picture.It is a low profile card that fits in the Antec Minuet case easily.
Cons: I have tried out two of these. The first one is giving no signal on the second monitor line. The second card came with a backplane bracket that was punched wrong and thus cannot be attached to the card without breaking the DMS-59 connector off from the board. Diamond used to be one of the most reliable companies out there, and I know it was a long time ago that I am thinking of, but I think right now their QC needs to improve before I could recommend their products.

Great, lightweight, low power Graphics Card that'll do everything for the avg user

Summary: Got this card for Hackintosh Desktop I built. I was looking for low profile graphics card that was compatible with OSX out of the box / reliable and required minimal config. While this item is not sold for this use, I can't rate it negatively for that reason alone, That is because the item did work - very well in fact, and very few cards perform this well and are low profile like it is.
SLOW Diamond tech support *verified* both GPUs I purchased were defective. Both should be capable of 2560 x 1600 via Dual-Link DVI as shown CLEARLY on Diamond's web-site spec sheet.

Summary: On a side note, people really should take the time to educate themselves and properly understand simple technology better before commenting and potentially giving bad advice/information to prospective Newegg shoppers. Of note: the 4096 x 2160 (Display Port) rez that is listed on Newegg's spec sheet has nothing to do with the resolution these cards are supposed to be able to display via the DL-DVI ports.
Pros: As noted in my initial review, these cards are very solidly built.. Diamond must have a good manufacturing contract because they are definitely better than average build quality.
Cons: Unfortunately, that attention to quality doesn't seem to extend to the card's actual capabilities. These cards are clearly advertised on the Diamond web-site as being able to display 2560 x 1600 via the DL-DVI Y-adapter to drive (2) monitors at that resolution, but are not capable of doing so. Since this capability is the primary reason I made this purchase, these cards were basically useless to me. Contrary to what a certain poster said in his response, I know how to...
Summary: IF YOU WANT 2560 x 1600 RESOLUTION, YOU NEED TO USE THE MINI DISPLAY PORT and NOT THE DVI!
Pros: Does 4096 x 2160 resolution. The poster complaining about not doing 2560 resolution by the first initial "H" should read the specs. "H" just bought it less than a month ago and I doubt New Egg just put "(Display Port)" within the last few weeks. So it isn't buyer beware, but "buyer read the specs" that are plainly in front of your face. Yet, they complain saying,"The 2 x Dual-Link DVI out is a clever design that utilizes a Y-adapter from a special video-out port to de...
Bought (2), both are defective out of box & will not display 2560 x 1600 rez, ZERO customer service. Caveat Emptor!

Summary: I contacted Diamond support via their web-site trouble ticket system TWELVE DAYS ago (5/16/2014). As of 5/28/2014 I have yet to hear back from them. Nothing, nada, zilch. Not even a weak attempt to pretend they care whether or not their customers have working products. I can't remember the last time I experienced such slow, non-existent customer service (perhaps during my last visit to the DMV?). Simply unacceptable.
Pros: Yes, it's cliche' by now...but "buyer beware." I'm a very patient person and realize that most of the time problems get worked out if given enough time. However, in this case I am left with defective products and zero customer support. I picked up (2) of these low profile 7750s to throw in a couple new HTPC builds I'm putting together. Physically, these cards look and feel great. The hardware seems very solid with relatively thick/sturdy PCBs, great little low-profile...
Cons: These cards are advertised to do 2 x Dual-Link DVI out, but beware they are incapable of displaying this resolution. Simply put, neither GPU I purchased will actually display 2560 x 1600 resolution to either of my perfectly functioning Dell 30" monitors. 2560 x 1600 seems to be a "paper spec" only. After doing some extensive trouble-shooting involving lots of GPU driver "clean-and-sweeps" and video-card swaps (putting these cards in other systems with different mother...
