Linux does not accelerate video with this card (yet).

Summary: Card itself seems to work great. It did not accelerate my videos and reduce my CPU loading but that was my Linux OS problem since it does not support that yet. I gave the 5 star card 3 stars because I wish someone would have let me known about that so I would not have purchased the card. However Linux supports dual monitors so at least I can use it for that.
Summary: Service was good. Unfortunately the video card requires 400 watts of power, my older computer only has a 185 watt power supply. Recently upgraded from xp to Windows 7, everything works fine except for the games, I need a better video card but doubt if I will find one for this older computer with only a 185 watt power supply. I'll just do without the Windows 7 games.
Summary: The purpose for getting this was to put it in a small form factor Dell. While it came with options to make low profile I actually had to use my Dremel and cut the heat sync to make it fit in the Dell. Even with this the heat sync is tightly wedged between the removable panel and the motherboard, makes me a little worried.
Summary: Card came bent. I bent it back into place. Static bag appeared to be opened once. Usually, the bag is sealed with a piece of tamper tape. No tape. Installed the card. It worked fine for a dual monitor setup. Works in Windows 8. It was a bit jumpy during the install, but it works. It didn't need the driver CD. Windows did its thing. No fan. Silent. Which is why I bought the card. Rebate system is a joke. Don't waste your time.
Summary: The price on this card made it worth while. I had purchased it based on the fact that I had a HDMI to DVI converter to give me a second High def. output. It operates okay but could use additional features such as individual output adjustment. It indicates that it does this but ends up adjusting both monitors when using the DVI and HDMI outputs. The driver disk was useless with Windows 8.
Summary: Had to connet with HDmI onnector,configuration problem with my 24 lcd sreen with VGA connector. Now work fine, see more details , perfect for a step above the graphic on mother board. And also note little faster on games.
Summary: I recently purchased XFX ONE... graphics card, which was a good deal for what you get. However I actually only had mine working for a few hours before it went kaput. I was using the HDMI input on the card to set up my computer screen and HDTV as extended screens. But like I said it only actually worked the first time I used it for about an hour, and since can get no display on my HDTV.
Summary: I'm upgrading three older Dells with feeble PSUs (~300w) to Windows 7. After some research (Tom's Hardware Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart & PassMark Video Card Benchmark), I decided 5450 64bit cards were the best bang for the watt. I bought three - this one, a Sapphire, and an Asus. I tried all three in a Dell Optiplex 330 running Win7x64 and ran WEI. XFX was the slowest.
Pros: First the good news - it works on Windows 7 (32 & 64) so I'll keep it. However, it wasn't much of an improvement over the old OEM card.
Cons: Now the disappointing news. Right out of the box the card did not look like the one NewEgg pictured. It's the correct model #, but the heat sink on mine is smaller and does not wrap around the back.
Summary: My main problem is the HDMI display. I returned the original one and received a replacement. It is better but still the same problem. Ever so often the display disappears and you have to jiggle the wire at the connector to get it back. Also, it doesn't run that great. For a 1gb ddr3 I was hoping it was better, but I guess you get what you pay for. I have a 1360x768 display.
