WINDOWS 8.1 ===> Requires Booting and reconfiguring BEFORE you install the card.
9 March 2014
Summary: If you have Windows 8.1 (I got the HP Envy Phoenix), then you will be required to reboot and change the BIOS prior to installing this card. Your HP computer will reject it (due to Windows 8.1) and you need to boot it and change the configs. This link helped out. [...] Otherwise, the card seems to work perfectly fine. Its nice there is no Fan that makes any noise. I onlly gave it 4 stars because Windows makes it hard for it to work under UEFI.
Summary: It does work on linux and windows with dual 2560x1600 displays while only consuming 35w but it is slow and vmware has issues with it when switching from guest to host and unity. Probably not enough memory for this setup. Upgraded to the newer 510nvs and it is significantly faster and works very well. Get the new one!
Summary: I wanted to do a video review but all my clothes are at the laundromat. I received the product. Installed it and I'm using it. My boss paid for it so it could have been twice as expensive and I still would have bought it. The Amazon feedback system pretty much blows. They wanted me to leave feedback for the packaging. Whoo hoo for packaging !
Summary: I used this board in conjunction with the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 video card to drive a 6 monitor workstation for data analysis purposes. The Quadro NVS 450 can support 4 monitors at 1920 x 1200 resolution at 24 bits color with no problem under Ubuntu 12.1. Decent desktop performance, video playback is quite acceptable. No 3D capabilities so it's not going to play your video games all that well. One star off for being a bit expensive ($400).
Summary: Needed a video card that could support 4 monitors, this one works perfect. Easy to install and setup. The management utility also does a great job of showing which monitor is on which port and the video settings.
Summary: I had the same problem as others. When I tried to make it come back from the black screen after the energy saver was on my 4th screen would die and not come back until after several restarts. The fix. Bring up NVIDIA Control Panel. Go to View System Topology. Click expand all. It should show the temperature of the card. On my computer it shows as two two monitor cards. Mine were running at 78 and 80 degrees C. wow.
Summary: Well I wanted to get my quad display going. I am configuring my somewhat older system for mostly stock market charts, and 1 live video capture (PCI Sat card). My original idea was to just purchase another cheap display adapter for the second unused slot on my mainboard. My mainboard is a GIGABYTE P67A-UD3 and there is 2 PCIe x16 slots, so I made good om my original idea.

Summary: This is a wonderful video card for quad monitors, I build top of line trading computers and always try to talk my clients into this NVS 450, a bit pricey but well worth the investment, as well as backed by 3 year warranty not to mentions top notch support people that speak English and live in USA.
