Pros: The HDMI connection's HD picture on my TV is GREAT!!! The price is very, very economical and the installation is very simple.
Cons: After I installed the software for the video card, it knocked out my on board sound. I was confused until I connected the HDMI cable to my TV. I was able to control the sound with my TV remote. Read the manual BEFORE you start the install.
Summary: Replaced a failing HD5700 in a 5+ years old Asus P5KE/Intel Core 2 Q6600 Win 7 system. It may not test as well as the 5700, but it drives a 27" Samsung monitor just fine for general non-gaming use. Only "problem" is that HDMI to HDMI performance is poor. Had to used DVI to DVI cable.
Summary: I am not a gamer, so I just wanted my windows and browsers launch faster. I also watch movies on my computer occasionally and the HD movies were jerky with the onboard video which had 1/2 Gig. I expected a lot more out of a video card with 8 times as much RAM.
Pros: Easy to install. It automatically disabled the onboard video which is nice. That means, my RAM is now using its full capacity for the OS. This card has extended the life of my PC by another few years.
Cons: I have a good case with plenty of fans and circulation. This card gets really hot. It is currently running at 125F, and this is with the default settings. I still recommend this card if you are buying it with decent rebate.
Summary: They work the way they are supposed to. I bought them to install in an older motherboard ( goal3+) to substitute for the built in integrated video which does not work with linux. These cards do work, but there may be some issues with the motherboard.
Summary: The video card that came with my Dell XPS 8500 went out when I accidentally shut the power off. Tried all the usual stuff, but no go. I don't do gaming, so I figured I'd try about the cheapest thing I could find.
Summary: In the description this states "low profile". I had this shipped to my customer and drove all the way out to their location to install the video card into the computer and when it was NOT "low profile", I was not a happy camper. This is NOT "low profile" and does NOT ship with low profile brackets.
I won't copy reviews on this card as it's easy enough to Google them

Summary: It's a video card and it works. I won't copy reviews on this card as it's easy enough to Google them. However, I will say this. Minus one star because.... REALLY? Do I really have to buy a separate low profile adapter kit to properly fit this into my computer?
