Summary: I would give it 5 stars because it is a perfect cheap graphic card. But my computer needs low profile brackets, and luckily it came with them. That was great but the only problem was I got 2 brackets that were the same! I couldn't fit my VGA slot in the bracket, that was extremely frustrating!! Anyway onto the card, the card is a very good card. It has 1 GB of video ram gives you very good frame rates on low end games.

Summary: Hello, I purchased this card for my wifes computer.It replaced a Nvidia Geforce6200le (entry card) that went bad.I had no trouble installing it in her K9N4SLI motherboard with a AMD 64X2 4400+ cpu. After installation, it booted to a VGA graphics mode. I went to the device Mgr, and upgraded the driver ..It made a huge speed improvement on her computer as far as quickness..Even booted faster too.
Summary: I recently installed this in an old computer to bring it up to somewhat acceptable video standards and it seems to be pulling its weight. Now consider this isn't a gaming card, I doubt you could run any new games beyond "medium" or "good" quality graphic settings. It's strength lies in its format and fan-less design. On that note I would like to mention that the card idles at around 48-50 Celsius when on Win7 desktop.
Pros: Low profile and small size, Noiseless, Draws power directly from motherboard so no need for PCI-E cables
Cons: Could potentially run very hot if case does not have good air flow
Summary: Just installed it on a Dell optiplex gx620 which had no dedicated videocard. I dual-boot windows 7 32-bit and Ubuntu 12.04.3 32-bit and installation was easy and painless on both. If you use Ubuntu just get the experimental beta driver if you want to play games on steam or else keep the opensource driver. Didn't had the time to test the hdmi output yet, so I can't tell if it is good or not.
