Great card for Productivity

Summary: This card was exactly what i needed to cheaply and efficiently upgrade my work computer to support 3 monitors. Does everything i need it to for a great price. I did also manage to upgrade my HP PSU because 280watt was just not going to cut it for any GPU upgrade. If needed I will buy many more of these.
Summary: This is not the newest most up to date video card, but it powers my three monitors just fine, and can pull some decent fps (45 on med settings) with most of my games. It is quiet because it lacks a fan, but hasn't gotten close to slowing down because of heat under the average loads I put it under. My only complaint is that it takes up two PCI panels on the back of your tower, and in a small form factor you may lose a wireless card, sound card, or other peripheral.
Summary: Supports three monitors. Good drivers. It runs on Windows 8.1 One monitor connected through nvidia gtx 560 ti. So some times I disable this (AMD) card to play games. Usually my pc uses both cards. But marvel is that you can make two graphic cards work in sync together.
Summary: Didn't even have to update the video driver. RedHat 6.4 stock worked as soon as I plugged in the card. I wanted a way to drive 3 displays without messing with Xinerama to cross X server boundaries. Also, I have one 27" QWHD display, and this card has one dual-link output. ------------------ UPDATE 2014/01/21: ------------------ When I wrote this review, I didn't have my QWHD display connected yet. Once I did, I could only get 2 of my 3 monitors working.
Summary: I needed a multi monitor setup for my workstation on a budget, this fit the bill. Installed the card, booted the computer and then installed drivers. It just works, no fan to die (I have had many video card fans die, then the card dies shortly after), runs 3 monitors without a hitch. Costs about the same as a USB3 to HDMI adaptor.
Can play reasonably high end games on 250W power supply

Summary: I bought it because I wanted to play Skyrim on a computer a couple of years old, and it works really well. I researched it a bit, and read that this was a card that could run on a 250W power supply. Since I didn't want to buy a new power supply AND a new graphics card (and while I'm at it a new processor - thus a whole new computer), I decided to give this a shot, and at ~ $40, it seemed reasonable. Installation was easy, and the game was up and running.
Summary: I bought an off-lease Dell OptiPlex 755 tower for the kids... but they couldn't play Minecraft with the internal video chip. I looked for the best budget video card, but when I tried to install it was blocked by the big heatsink and CPU fan enclosure. It needed to be less than 7 inches in length, and without all the double-width fans. After doing a lot of online checking, found this one, which has decent performance (great for the price!) and fits in the slot.
Summary: This card is a must have if you are going to spend less than $100 on a video card. I'm able to run Minecraft, Torchlight 1 & 2, Octodad, and Sims on high. I still havent tried Battlefield 3, or Crysis, but so far I am 100% satisfied with this card. It was very easy to install into my hp desktop, popped the card in, powered my system up, inserted installation, let that do it's thing and rebooted. Very great card.
