Not a powerhouse but reasonably quick and quiet

Summary: Provided you're not planning on playing the latest games with all the bells and whistles then this is a decent solution, and not a bad choice for a HTPC that will be doing light gaming. Now the actual pros and cons of using for an HTPC build are that it's a very low power GPU, being one of the few that can be powered entirely by the PCIe bus, requiring no additional power cable.
Summary: Bought this to replace the GeForce GTS 240 in my Dell Studio XPS 8000. Very pleased indeed. Fits perfectly. No problem that it occupies the height of two bays. Unlike my old card, it requires no internal wiring, as it draws all its power through the PCI-E slot. The recommended PSU wattage is 400+, but it seems generally agreed by the technical community on the Internet that 300W is sufficient (although not less), so I'm not anticipating problems with my 350W PSU.
Summary: I received my Sapphire HD 7750 Ultimate earlier today and have just finished putting it through its paces with 3DMark. It's definitely a very respectable card, performance wise, particularly considering the passive cooling. A number of online reviews unfairly compare this card to the 6700 series cards, which are not passively cooled and have considerably higher power requirements.
Summary: The reviews are generally positive for this card unless they're pushing the limits. It's a very good card that is absolutely silent. There is potential to increase power with crossfire... and yet still have a totally silent solution. Easy to recommend.
Summary: Bought this card on the strength of the reviews and have not been disappointed. It does however get very warm and can generate a lot of heat inside your desktop case. So, beware. I had to purchase a 'Silent fan' for my case mounted just above this device in order to remove the heat. Fan was mounted in the usual back of the case position and does the job well. If you have a good quality case with plenty of ventilation you won't need a fan.
Summary: This card is ideal for my situation - I have a desktop I put together a few years ago and still functions very well - but the old card has died. I wanted a higher powered replacement. I use it for photos, videos and light gaming - what I would consider to be normal use - not cutting edge gaming. It seems to cope well with whatever I throw at it. It fitted easily into my case - of course, it needs two slots. It doesn't need any additional power supply.
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my video card to play a new game and after reviewing several models went for this one. My desktop only has a 350W power source so I wanted a video card with low power consumption. Overall my computer is much faster and I can play all of the games on High or Very High settings, while before I could only do so on Low. Highly recommend this card if you don't want to spend much.
