Summary: Pro Great Price Good Enough for low end gaming and watching HQ videos Very Silent (no peep whatsoever) Con Low profile Not good for high end gaming Overall This card is good enough and does the job if your looking to just watch video and certain games
Summary: HIS cards are usually the brand I purchase. Very reliable, last forever. I have two of this same flavor that are 5 years old, and still perform very well. The 5450 is a mainstream card, not for high level game playing. Decent, clear, graphics. Price is inexpensive. Had one failure, a HIS 6450. Burned the motherboard with it. Do like the no fan concept, 40mm fans tend to be noisy, and fail frequently.
Summary: Have used several of these in different machines and have only good things to say. They're simple, reliable, and easy to use. They just work. They're nothing fancy but for anything less than gaming, they work fine and you can't beat the price. Have bought them more than once and will continue to use them.
Summary: Cheap and affordable, got two of these to run a triple monitor display (2 22' lcd, 1 42' tv) at work.

I needed this to support dual 2560x1440 monitors (Monoprice 27" IPS-ZERO-G) that ONLY support dual-link DVI. It's silent (no fan) and just works. The only con is the price.
Use onboard graphics while using this card at same time.

Summary: This particular pcie1x card will allow you to continue to use your on-board graphics card at the same time. The only catch is that you can't use it's VGA port while you are using it's display port connector. The card can only be connected to a maximum of two monitors. If you have an on-board graphics ports, you can use at least three monitors (The restrictions for the VGA and Display port only apply to the card that they are on, so if you have on-board VGA on your...
