Great card so far.
25 February 2014
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.
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.
Summary: I work at home and needed more monitors. The HD 6450 FLEX allows me to have 3 monitors at once so that I can see all open programs without having to toggle back and forth. I am not a big fan of the Eyefinity software but that may just be lack of familiarity at this point.
Summary: I kept experiencing issues with my work computer trying to drive 3 monitors with both the onboard video and an addon video card as well. I would get BSOD events from the setup and the onboard video consumed 2GB of physical memory as well too. I decided on this card because it is the only card at the time of purchase that was under $100 that could drive 3 DVI monitors. A lot of the other cards require either DisplayPort monitors or active dongles to drive them.
Summary: This was my first build and I worried and worried about making it work the first time - so I looked for the highest rated products with many ratings to try to ensure best performance and best chances of things not being DOA. I have been delighted with this video card and works perfectly out of the box with Linux Mint! It works with Debian, but max monitor resolution was not available after installation and I had no intention of monkeying around with it to get it to work.
