Summary: I have a Dell PC I use for a HTPC, and it doesn't have a big power supply. This card has enough computational power to get the job done without over-taxing the power supply. I don't use it for games or anything, but for movies and TV, it does great!
Summary: When installed, it did work, but at a maximum frame rate of 9. Totally unusable for gaming of any kind. Hopefully, is was merely a defective card. It was returned and the refund was minus a large chunk of what I paid.
Summary: This little video card is perfect for the barebones shuttle, which has low wattage and two expansion slots. I watch a lot of videos, and the onboard video was simply problematic. So, I broke down and purchased this card. Glad I did. No more flickering and freezing.
Summary: I have an HP Pavilion m9040n desktop, and the old video card gave out a few days ago. Did a little research on the web before replacing, since I didn't know what was out there these days. Decided to go with one of these cards, but local purchase, since I was sort of stuck without a working desktop; didn't want to trot out the laptop on a daily basis, but could have, if necessary.
Summary: Was using a gt260 with 1gb ddr2 memory & honestly got a higher rating with win 7 x64 than this card. Yet when doing video work, it takes less time so I do believe that win 7's performance rating algorithm is off somehow....lol I would recommend this card.
Summary: I bought this in large part due to its working with a 300 Watt power supply. Stepping up from this card and one needs a 400 Watt or greater power supply and I did not want to add a larger power supply and possibly need an additional fan or CPU cooler in the cabinet. The 2GB of VRAM is also important. My old graphics card had a good graphics processor or GPU but only 512MB or RAM and so would borrow 1.7GB from the system memory.
Gigabyte Geforce Gt 610 video board arrived damaged. Poor packaging by Gigabyte

Summary: Video board arrived damaged. There is no sign of any damage on Amazon's shipping package. One of the clips that anchor the fan was broken. Gigabye's pachage is very poor. It is a cardboard box, with a felt bottom. It contains the video board, instructions and installation CD. The video board is in a static free metal foil pouch, but it is not secured by styrofoam or by any other means. It can bounce around inside the box whenever it is moved.
Summary: I just received my new graphics card and I am pleased. I was a little worried about whether or not there would be low-profile brackets included, since there were none in the pictures, but it did have them. I did have to change the mounting bracket, but that was quick and easy. The card seems to work great, and my games have never looked better.
