not in retail box

Summary: I just received this card. If you are expecting to receive a retail packaging like the pictured in the description just forget about it. I received a generic blank cd, generic antistatic bag with the card inside and the spliter inside another....im still thinking on returning it but for the money paid ill give it a try i think. Still, deceptive description.
Summary: 6 years into it's lifespan this card is still working great. Mine came OEM in a Dell Precision T3400 built in 2008 bought post-business as a refurb for home use. No complaints about using it for "business" type computing. One problem though (and why I am back looking at specs) is video tearing for just about any video size. With only one screen plugged in and in use it doesn't happen, add a second screen and some videos become unwatchable.
Summary: Just received card, so I can't report on functionality. However, a later review suggests that it comes with a pair of splitters, one analog and one digital. Alas, mine only came with an analog splitter. Also, FYI card fits in full height slot, and does not have adaptor for half height. Since I haven't actually used it (it will take a while to figure out a bracket) The star rating doesn't have much meaning. The card does look nice though.
Summary: I've tried two other graphics cards in my HP Compaq dc7800 small form factor PC and this is the only one that has worked and came with the smaller face plate for my PCIex16 slot. The picture is exactly what the card looks like and fits my computer. It automatically overrode the integrated native graphics board and searched for the driver CD and installed it. I haven't had this easy a time installing any other component on my system.
