Summary: I'm writing this review because I could find very little information on Video Cards fitting in Dell Optiplex 780 Small Form Factor cases. First off, item arrived today great packaging and item as described. The first thing I knew I would have to do would be to put the half height brackets on the card. So, I start reading through the manual and there are no instructions on how to do this. Fortunately, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out.
Summary: The 64-bit ZOTAC nVidia GT 520 graphics card is an entry level video card that at its best only meets my tempered expectations. I installed this card in a Windows 7 64-bit rig running a second gen i5-2310 processor with 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a 7,200 RPM hard drive. This particular computer was originally using Intel's HD 2000 integrated graphics powering a 23" monitor with a native 1920 x 1080 resolution. I'm using an HDMI 1.3 cable.
Summary: Its an awesome graphics card only if u have core 2 duo level processor. On dual core processors u have to change your gaming settings to Normal... only then it will play games smoothly... I have tested it on: Intel Dual Core E2140 1.6Ghz 2GB DDR2 Dynet ram 600Mhz Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit (Service Pack 1) System Rating Before: 3.2 After: 4.4 Game Compatibility on tested PC: COD MW1 - Great COD MW2 - Normal COD MW3 - Great Hot pursuit - Normal Bad Company 2 - Normal HAWX2...
Summary: This is a HTPC card Contrary to most of the reviews stated here, this is not a gaming graphics card at all... this is not made for gaming. This is a HTPC card. I promise you...Even with a mainstream configuration you won't get any greater than 5-10fps on most modern games, even at just 720p. Memory confusion. The 2GB variant of this card is also not any gaming funda...
Summary: This graphic card is good for those who dont play heavy duty games like battlefield 3, NFS The RUN. Even though it runs the game but it lags and gives poor performance. It can't be overclocked properly also! Don't get followed by the price . Instead go for GT 440 or Sapphire HD 5670! Good for games before 2008!
Summary: This PciExpress card of 2Gb DDR3 ram has very good performance for high end graphics n games......Please don't care about its size...coz its said "Best things come in small packages".....so just see its performance.
