Perfect for a Studio/Music PC
Gabriel F. Dixon, Amazon
24 April 2014
Summary: After alot of research regarding video cards for my custom build music pc, I chose this one. It works perfect as there are no fans on this unit but rather a huge heatsink. Be sure and realize that this takes up two slots but it is well worth it.
Summary: Works for what I bought it for! PCI slot support with Aero effects, directx 11 and multimonitor support. Plug and Play with my older Dell Dimension 3000 running Windows 7 SP1. If you're looking to play newer games at high settings, don't bother with this.
Summary: remember it's just a little card don't except to much out of it.
Pros: - just a little card! able to play League of Legends at 1080 all turned down at 60 fps with oc! - able to play Black Ops 2 at 1280x1024 at 60 all turned down - Far Cry 3 at 1280x1024 at 30 - not made for gaming but it's just a little thing I have mine oc - Core: 850mhz - Memory: 810mhz - Fan: 65%...
Summary: I don't know why everyone says you need a 300 or even 250 watt power supply - I installed this in an IBM ThinkCentre S50 with 200 watt power supply and it works no problem. I have played Civilization 5 for hours and ran benchmarks (heaven and 3dmark) without any power issue - and the S50's have a...
Summary: Some possible uses: Great for an HTPC. Silent, low power, excellent video playback, HDMI. Very good dedicated Physx card, especially if you're out of PCIe slots. Now you can have dual SLI cards AND a Physx card in a PCI slot. These are popular with the BOINC/Folding crowd.
Pros: Fastest PCI card that I know of. CUDA Physx Passive cooling - quiet Low power (no external connection) DVI, VGA, HDMI outputs
Cons: This is very much a niche product. Outside these niches it's just an average video card.
Summary: Overall great video card. I gave it 5/5 because it is leaps and bounds over my DDR2 card.
Pros: This is a great video card for those with low-profile computers. I upgraded from an ATI HD 4350 with 1GB DDR2 and my Windows Experience Index jumped from a 3.2 to a 5.9 on the Graphics level. I play FSX with a consistant 35 fps with everything maxed out. Counter-Strike is smooth as a baby's botto...
Cons: The height ~3" (see specs for specific height), it a bit too tall if your PCI-e x16 is at the top of the mobo like mine is. I had to take the shroud and fan off to clear the case, so I'm going to have to drill a hole in my case to put the fan back on. A couple of video-savvy friend report the Fer...
