Summary: This graphics card has a massive heat sink on it because they were to cheap to put a smaller heat sink with a fan. It will not fit in a normal PCIe space unless you have two additional slots next to it empty.
Summary: Less than 4 months later this card has died. No update can save you from the snowy pixels from Hell that appear on your screen. I had used this brand (Nvidia) before without issue, but that isn't the case here. What solves it? Buying another card! Apparently I'm not the lone ranger judging by many posts complaining about the same problem. Ever since the "Afterburner" update, I've had nothing but problems.
I had read that Nvidia head excellent driver support for Linux

Summary: I bought this card for an old Optiplex GX 620. I had read that Nvidia head excellent driver support for Linux, and it does. it runs all multimedia flawlessly, and has no heat issues even though it has no fan as long as the case is properly vented. it breathed new life into an old computer. dismiss reviews complaining of game performance. This card does what it is supposed to, it is not, and was not, designed to be a high end gaming card.
Summary: I have been using this card for a few months for my living room HTPC (home theater PC) and it is a great card for that purpose. The card is compact, silent and it has no trouble outputting 1080p video over HDMI.
Summary: I bought this to upgrade the video card in my Dell Inspiron 531. Not wanting the hassle of replacing the power supply or case (which can apparently be a headache), I decided to give this card a shot. I've had it installed for over a month now and it's running great so far. My Windows Experience Index on Vista was upped from a 3.0 to a 3.7 (the video card itself upgraded from a 3.0 to a 4.9) The upgrade from a 256mb to 1gb isn't as noticable as I'd imagine, but videos are...
Summary: I just got this from fry's because that's where I first saw this before coming over to amazon. So I thought I do a small review...I wanted to update the graphics card on an old mini itx board that I'm using and decided to go the store and see what I could find in the cheap version of what graphic cards were available. I bought it because It was one of the cheapest with at least 1gig of memory. My board said it supported pcie but didn't specify what version.
Summary: I really like this graphics card. It does the job without any annoying fans needed. Since I am not a gamer, it is fast enough for what I need and I like being able to run 2 monitors simultaneously. I even hooked it up to my HDTV via HDMI and streamed videos from amazon with clear picture & sound. It was easy to install, but I didn't like how it assigned the D-Sub output as Monitor-1 (left monitor). I would have preferred the DVI as Monitor-1.
