Summary: This is a great graphics card for the media center PC I built specifically for playback of streaming video from a NAS server in my office to the small quiet PC in the living room. The Plus is that both Audio and Video stream through the HDMI port on this card making it a perfect solution for playback of video for the budget price of this card. Plays perfect 1080p streams so this card fit my purposes perfectly.
Summary: Installed easily on my Win7 machine. I use the for watching internet on my 40" Samsung TV. It didn't like the new driver from Windows update and had to revert to driver from install CD. Tried newest driver(s) from Zotac website and still won't work. Even installed card in another Dell machine and the newest driver(s) will not work. Disappointed in that but the install CD driver works.
Going to install this in my Dell Poweredge 2900 Server

Summary: I was given a Dell Poweredge 2900 from work. It has Dual Intel Xeon Processors @ 2.3ghz, and 8GB DDR2 ram. I plan on putting this card into the server in the 8x slot. I am going to use my server as a SteamOS box. I heared it was possible to put a 1x PCI chip in a 8x PCI slot, so i am going to see how this works. If i get it up and running i will let you know how it performs.
Summary: The Zotac GeForce GT 218 with 512MB DDR3 PCI Express X 1, DVI HDMI VGA Graphics Card it right into my HP Small Form Factor PC. There's not much room in this PC, but the card fit and functioned beautifully. The price wasn't too bad and the shipping was fast! I recommend this product. I actually repair computers full time.
Summary: This graphics card doesn't have drivers that are compatible with Windows 7, 64 bit. Also, there was insufficient information in regards to system compatibilty for this product. It did not work with the computer system that I bought it for. Shipping took longer than usual as well.
Summary: sadly i have to update my review, this card blewa transistor today after only a week of use, trying to register it on zotacs website but it is not recognising the serial number, waiting to my claim ticket to help so that i can register it so that i can get an RMA on it. Will see how quickly zotac support really is then.
Summary: i bought this because my hp slimline only had one half hight pci x 1 slot to stick a vid card in , and it had an hd out put . it actually gave me less performance than my on board video . it's a miserable little card with no support from zotac who's box it came in . they don't even admit they even made it on their web site . i am un aware of any situation where i would recomend the purchase or use of this product .
Summary: This is my third Zotac card and they never fail to please. I bought this to use in a hackintosh build. This card works well for this purpose. It even allows passthrough HDMI audio which is often problematic on a hackintosh build. Works with full HD with QE/CI. Excellent as always from Zotac.
