It fits, it works, it's inexpensive. And it's better than 2007 factory GPU.

Summary: I upgraded my Dimension E510 with new ram, Pentium D965, and new os (win7 pro), so I figured to swap GPU too. This may not have been the best I could get, true, but it's way way better than the basic oem I had. You can find them at good prices, just shop patiently before bidding :) And ALWAYS check your computer's internal dimensions! That's why measurements are always included w the card's tech info.
Summary: Purchased for HTPC and the fan was very loud. EVGA's minimum fan speed was 65%. I had to reflash the video card using nibitor and Nvflash. It now runs as low as 40% and is much quieter. Temps haven't changed.
Summary: Best cost-efficient graphics upgrade ever. I didn't even have to replace my power supply. Suddenly my games have details I never even knew were there. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for decent graphics on a budget.
Summary: I bought this video card because I wanted to run the HDMI to a 1X2 HDMI splitter, and then run that to both my computer monitor, and my TV. The one concern I had was with the audio over HDMI. In the past there was alot of issues when trying to get Windows to recognize the video card as an audio output device, and some needed cables to attach to the graphics card from the motherboard to enable audio over HDMI. This card had no issues.
Summary: Since purchasing the original Intel Core i3 processor back in 2010 I have consistently had trouble with the HD graphics. The picture quality was always very acceptable on a Panasonic 42 inch LCD HDTV, but the driver would stop responding during Blu ray playback quite often. After many, many driver updates still the same problem. Tried PowerDVD 10 and 12, Arcsoft TMT3, and Corel's WinDVD Pro 10 and 11, with no success.
Summary: So I knew this card wasn't going to be real good, but it did a lot more than what I thought. If you do low end gaming, this is perfect. In combination of my Athlon II x3 450, I can do things like this: Skyrim with high (not quite max) with roughly 25 FPS HoN on absolute max with perfect frames, even in chaos you might lose like 1 frame for a split second Dungeon Defenders on almost max, perfect frames In browsers games are perfect, and HD videos are in HD with the...
Summary: I bought this for our basic home computer, and it's working really well. The computer is a 2007-2008 (iirc) Dell Vostro 400. Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz (Q6600) 4GB RAM DDR2 400MHz nVidia 8600GT 256MB (original video card) 350W Power Supply The video card was the only one that was holding back this system, so as a result, I was able to raise the Windows Experience Index from a 1.0 to 4.4 out of 7.9 I am also able to play some graphic intensive games on Medium/Low settings,...
Summary: I had several spare parts in order to assemble a PC to watch netflix, blue rays and dvds. Had an older Intel E8400, 4GB of RAM, and an older SSD. This graphics card complemented everything and works just fine.
