Summary: This card replaced the stock video card in a Dell Optiplex 960 full-sized case. I was concerned that the overly large CPU heatsink would prevent this card from fitting in the case but that was not so in the end. Longer cards would have definitely had an issue though. This card is in my Windows 7 media center PC and has worked flawlessly since I installed it. No complaints from me whatsoever.

Summary: Installed this video card on my low budget Acer PC with a smaller form factor case. Big improvement over the onboard video. The NVIDIA software is useful, it optimizes the settings for the games I have installed. It runs the valve source engine based games well. Crysis 3, not so much.
Summary: Using it to run a low powered NAS Server/Steam OS box. Q1900M Asrock Mobo/Cpu Combo - 10 Watts ($69) 128 GB SSD - ~5 watts ($50) 3 TB Platter HD ~ 20 watts ($100) Nvidia 610 ~ 30 watts ($40) DIY Case - VCR from Goodwill ($5) Pico PSU 80w ($25) 12v Laptop Power Supply ($5) I installed Steam OS, then I had to add additional repositories in order to install Samba. Samba is used as a file server w/ ~100MB/s (megabyte, not bit) transfer speed.
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.
