Summary: ... That's kinda all there is to it. It works well, but doesn't come with a low-profile bracket, which was the whole point. Might be able to get one somewhere else, though. Not sure yet. Even so it's still well worth buying if you have an old pc that you want to run a few games on.
Summary: Hi, I bought this graphics card to up grade from my GeForce GT 610 model, but unfortunately it didn't work. I installed a new i7-3770 Quad core processor which works beautifully. I was installing the graphics card last and nothing happened. Turned on my computer and the monitor wouldn't come on at all. I don't know if the card is defective or just doesn't work, but I just had to reinstall my original graphics card.
Summary: Having been a computer repairman with my own business (now retired), I came to be exposed to almost every imaginable graphics board there is. I needed one with at least a GB of memory on it and chose this one. I'm partial to NVidia and this one reinforced my opinion.
Good card for the price, HDMI + DVI dual display is a little shaky though

Summary: The card is solid for playing games but obviously not as good as a $500+ card. I have no complaints on resolution for the games I play (GTA IV, Crysis 2 and 3 and the like). I have it connected to my monitor using the DVI output. The Nvidea game-optimization software seems a little over the top, offering to align your game settings to the card's performance profile but it is not intrusive and if it helps a little then it's not a big deal.
Summary: This wasn't exactly what I wanted to use but it got here first so I installed it anyway. I'm giving this five stars because I'm rating the video card (and perhaps the packaging and the installation) and not the buying experience. The product was cheap enough and it shipped pretty fast regardless, so no problems there. First there isn't going to be enough beef in this to get insane frame rates from complex games at high resolutions.
Summary: I bought two of these for a gaming system I built for my son and daughter. The MB has crossfire technology so the system runs very smooth on all games. This is a great Video Card for the price.
Summary: I bought this for a 3 year old PC that has an Intel motherboard with onboard graphics. A nephew had given my son a couple 3d games to play on it and it was struggling. This card fit the bill to improve performance in that game and others, including Minecraft. For the price it was worth the improvement, knowing it's not the fastest, but still adequate.
