Summary: I get worried sometimes when I dont see any reviews for an item Im purchasing for the first time but this one was just fine. So now I am adding my review so others will know you can jump in the water. This card is great for general video. Not high performance gaming, but what can you expect for the price? My customer just needed it for internet surfing so with 1gb memory on the card, it will do that and more.
Pros: Affordable, low profile for those smaller cases, 1GB memory, DVI, HDMI
Summary: This is a good entry level card for a pci-express computer. Will not handle heavy gaming but will work fine for everyday use and watching videos online. Was easy to install. For the price is a good deal if you are not a gamer.
Summary: Been having problems with my Dell XPS 8300 with blue screens and booting up at the first attempt, so I ordered this Video card since it was the same model. Inserted it into the slot and would not boot up at all, even tried twice and same result. Sent back for refund, went to local electronics store and purchased a different model and walla it has been working like a champ. I guess it was bad, did not have another pc to try it on. Live & learn even at my age.
Summary: I say five stars because I had bought this to play mildly rated games (graphic wise) I don't think it would be good if you're expecting to play more demanding games like battlefield or bioshock, but less demanding like need for speed world or the Sims, it works great plus it won't break the bank
Summary: I'll start with saying this card isn't awesome, but it isn't terrible. I held back on giving it 3 stars, simply because this card has gotten a bad rep for the bios issue (if you see choppy lines, you have to flash a new bios that gigabyte released). The good - It's small. Fits in my micro atx build with ease.
Good card for limited increase in variety and performance of 2D low power software applications... 3D is fairly limited

Summary: If you want improved video performance from your compact computer, but have built in limitations in available power supply, this is video card is an possible solution. I have noticed a considerable increase in modest video usage applications, such as internet, videos, or light gaming. Not good for 3D, or advanced applications.
Summary: Tried to install in a lenovo slim factor core i3 case. It was about 1/3 of an inch too long, it hit the hard drive. I had to send it back. The purpose of a half height card is to fit in a slim line or smaller case. Should have been shorter.
