Summary: I installed two of these in inexpensive computers that had a problem driving two monitors with the built-in graphics on the motherboard. This card speeds up the frame rate with an astronomy program that displays the sky and I can use either two monitors or one monitor and an HDTV at the same time. It will not drive all three at the same time, but that is expected.
It's not the fastest, but a great improvement over the on-board video.

Summary: This fit the bill just right. I used it in place of the on-board video of a Dell Optiplex 380 Slim Tower. NVidia recommends having a 300W power supply, so I found a 280W here on ebay and swapped the hard drive and DVD drive out with laptop drives to make up for the minor power shortage. I bought the caddy for the drives here on ebay too. Now I use the system as an entertainment system in my rec-room for video games, movies, music, or whatever else.
Summary: I got this to drive a pair of HP z24i 1920x1200 IPS monitors I was buying at the same time. I use these monitors for photo and video editing, some video display, and CAD and office software, so 3d performance is not an issue for me. I am also not using any audio capability offered by this card. It has two DVI outputs and one mini-HDMI output. I am only using the DVI outputs. With the 1920x1200 monitors, everything is working perfectly.
Summary: Item arrived on time and undamaged. I didn't read the specs or fully understand what I was buying at the time. I have a CPU with integrated graphics and this cards specs are apparently the same as the ones for the CPU. Still it wasn't a bad buy, as it had a $10.00 rebate. Performance wise it is every bit as good as my CPU's graphics from what I can tell using it for every day browsing and watching videos. May even be a tad bit better.
Summary: Wow! This was for my 12 year old son's home-built computer. The on-board graphics controller on his Gigabyte motherboard was only allowing about 3 fps for games like Just Cause 2 and Minimum which he purchased through Steam. Once this board was installed and the included drivers loaded the games work like a charm. What a great deal! We were looking at $150+ cards before we stumbled upon this one for only $50.
Got it for an older Dell desktop and it works great

Summary: I recently bought a refurbished Dell PC to replace a Windows 98 computer, and one of the reviews for that PC suggested that the on board graphics chip needed some help. The review recommended this graphics card, and it proved to be an excellent choice. The card was easy to install and works great. For some reason, it does not work well with YouTube, but it does all other video sites very well. For the money, this is a good way to go.
