Summary: This video card is okay to have as a backup to the one you use mainly for games. But if you don't play games, then you can just get this one. It is good enough for everyday use and the price is low.
Summary: I just got the card and installed it. My system Dell Vostro 230 Windows 7 I was afraid my power supply couldn't handle it, but so far it's been fine. I haven't noticed a big difference in my diplay yet. I guess I pictured it looking spetacular. I bought this because of the good reviews and price. I got this mainly for the Hdmi and I play Imvu. I hope I got the best for the price and nothing happens from this day on! Overall I'm satisfied so far!!!
Summary: I bought this video card because of the limited space in my Dell slimline. I also needed a card without a fan due to the weak power supply that this computer came with(I believe it is 240W). So far this card has worked flawlessly. I'm not a big gamer as far as new games go. The games I do play such as Portal, Age of Empires III, Lord of the Rings Online, Trine, Knights of the Old Republic all work just fine maxed out with this card.

Summary: Easy install in a regular box. Like others mentioned it comes with the necessary hardware to install in slim box. Ubuntu recognized the card right away [although I already had the ATI driver installed through Control Center for the mother board ATI card] Windows 7 installed the appropriate driver automatically, I didn't use the provided disc. Currently it's hooked to a 21.5" eMachines LCD monitor through VGA and a 42" Panasonic plasma through a 50' HDMI.
Good HDMI card for your Ubuntu/XBMC HTPC--if you don't mind the fan kicking in

Summary: This card works on my Dell Optiplex Gx620 SFF (Small Form Factor) system configured with Ubuntu 10.10 (Desktop edition). I use this system to put HDMI video/audio out from my XBMC-driven Ubuntu media center connected via HDMI to my HDMI receiver. Card installation was simple and painless--you remove the VGA off, and then use the low riser slot. And yes, you may have to remove the DVI card sitting on the motherboard.
Summary: Bought this to use with my Windows Media Center PC and a 50" plasma monitor with HDMI in. This card allowed me to adjust the screen parameters to work perfectly with the monitor. More control than I've had with any previous video card. The 7.1 surround sound audio out works great. This card is a bargain at under $40.
