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 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.
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: Great Price, Great Packaging, Quick Shipping. I love the silent "NO FAN" card. I'm not a gamer, I need the VGA/DVI/HDMI connectors for two monitors and TV. MSI cards are the only cards that allow my RCA Flat Screen TV aspect ratio features to fully function. All other cards are either Dot by Dot or Full. With the MSI card connected to the TV with HDMI, I get all aspect ratios, Full, Normal, Waterglass and Cinema to choose from.
