  • Summary: Decent for the cash but old tech.
  • Pros: Displays text and websites extremely efficiently, photos too.
  • Cons: I bought for an HTPC and while it does display full 1080p video pretty well, there is sometimes a slight refresh delay. Also it definitely can't handle full video on one monitor while also running another monitor even if your only surfing the web

slim card with the slim comp

Roberto D., Newegg
7 July 2011
  • Summary: if u plan to buy a slim card, I don't recommend this one at all because it probably won't fit.
  • Pros: it didnt overheat much but now that its summer its starting to get to burning tempatures. the graphics are decent and i don't lag much when the graphics are medium. but i usually run on low to prevent overheating. I like this card, but they're are flaws.
  • Cons: it says its a "slim" card but it doesn't even fit in my slim tower.. i was really disappointed but to lazy to return it.

Revised report

Patrick C., Newegg
11 May 2011
  • Summary: The card I received is Rev. 3.0, which does not need an spdif cable. I finally got the audio to work through hdmi. I had to download the latest drivers from Nvidia, install them, then go into device manager and manually guide hardware setup to the files I saved to the computer.
  • Pros: Same as before
  • Cons: Same as before

  • Pros: Ran most games at low-OCCASSIONALY medium settings but I knew that going into it. Played movies via HDMI well enough. It'd be good enough for a cheap lower end HTPC
  • Cons: Ended up getting rid of it because the heatsink is not sufficient at cooling at all for my tastes, as I recall was getting average temps of 60 C and I was not enjoying games at lower settings. It COULD play games like L4D at medium settings with some dropped frames

Does not run at PCIe Gen2 Speeds

Damian W., Newegg
3 May 2011
  • Summary: Even though it complies with PCIe 2.0 spec, it does not support the PCIe 2.0 speed which is 5 Gb/s. It would be nice to have this information on the box, so a person is fully informed about the capabilities.
  • Pros: Inexpensive v-card.
  • Cons: Runs only at PCIe Gen1 speed (2.5 Gb/s)

Great card but...

Ethan L., Newegg
28 August 2010
  • Summary: Great card, needs more detail for compatibility issues.
  • Pros: This is a great card for the pirce. HDMI, DVI, and VGA all in one. A bit over $30 bucks for it.
  • Cons: The main thing they forgot to specify that it doesn't work with AMD sempron processors, or atleast the Sempron 140 i got for my new computer I'm building. Everything else works as far as I can tell but I can't even use the monitor. For this, I cant return my CPU but i can return this card which I...

VGA not accessible in Low Profile Bracket

David D., Newegg
18 December 2009
  • Summary: The other reviewer who said this works with the Optiplex 760 SFF is flat out wrong. The BIOS (A05) will not let you use both the onboard adapter and the PCI-E adapter. The onboard adapter simply gets disabled and you can't change that in the BIOS.
  • Pros: Windows 7 recognized the card and let me go to 1440x900 before I installed the nVidia drivers.
  • Cons: There is no way to access the VGA connection when you use the low profile bracket.

cheapest HDMI

Bryan M., Newegg
2 September 2009
  • Summary: You don't play action games or HD video? This is adaquate for running a jumbo display if on-board video can't.
  • Pros: Can run Apple "Cinema" size screen (DVI port has all pins "live", that's called "dual-link") and there's an HDMI costing less than twenty five.
  • Cons: Just 16 stream-procs, clocked slow, and PC2-6400, soldered as 1 stick=singleChannel=64 bits...performance just a bit better than mobos that do not have AMD chipset video onboard. No Radeon surround audio codec on this, so HDMI port delivers no sound.
