Summary: Very good HTPC card. Runs warm, but no issues so far. The HDMI port isn't centered on bracket so I had to bend the bracket just a tiny bit at the screw so that the HDMI cable would fit. Worked for most things out of the box including through a Denon AVR1912. Only real issue is that there seems to be an HDCP handshake problem when using Amazon Prime video. Not sure if it is the Prime player, the card, or the receiver, but all other video sites have worked without issue.
Summary: I sold two gaming graphics cards, to put towards a AMD 290x and I waited awhile for it's release. Deciding I couldn't go almost two weeks without a PC for work and entertainment reasons. I purchased a filler graphics card, until the beast arrived. Gaming wise, let me put it this way, I can run Hearthstone beta (which is a playing game for those who don't know), at the lowest settings, and in window mode, with some resolution adjustment.
Summary: I bought this for my son's computer, which he uses for gaming. It's better than what he had, but I don't know that that is saying much. While it works fine for him playing games like Minecraft, Left For Dead 2, Teen Fortress 2, etc, I don't know that even a moderate gamer would want to use it. Overall, no complications, installed with ease, and decent graphics.
Summary: I have used a few of these; at work in small form factor cases and in my new homebuilt full sized PC. It comes with two short brackets if needed for the smaller machines, and even though the drilled hole for the screw does not line up correctly, the screws that go through near the HDMI port hold it together well enough. Added HDMI port to a VGA only machine and gave me the opportunity for multiple monitors at home.
Summary: Use it to replace the old video card (ATI RADEON X300). It did not work right at beginning; It caused my wireless pci card (on PCI slot 3) malfunction and the PC was running very slow. After I moved the wireless PCI card to PCI slot 2, everything starts running normal. The new video card runs nicely under windows 7, much better then the old card (Windows Aero desktop performance score improved from 2.2 to 4.2,3 D business and gaming graphics performance improved from 3.3...
