Better fan than most adapters like this

William Blair, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: This is an OEM GeForce GT-440 2 GB DDR-3 PCI-e dual-DVI graphics adapter with a (single) mini-HDMI socket that fits in a single PCI-e slot (and bracket) in the motherboard. It's going to perform as well as any other OEM GT-440 adapter.

Worked til it didn't

Andrew T., Newegg
22 November 2013
  • Summary: Overall fair card, wasn't the best, but I bought it cheap, works for an average gaming load but might have to tune down settings on more graphic intensive games.
  • Pros: Effective card, doesn't allow for high end gaming (FFXIV:ARR) at maximum settings, but runs games like Dota 2, Starcraft 2, other games well enough.
  • Cons: Burnt out after year + some change (roughly 15 months in) HDMI port is unreliable, DVI being the preferred method for consistent recognition.

Noisy Fan

DAVID M., Newegg
4 February 2013
  • Pros: Card works great - using it under Win7(64). No complaints about performance (not a PC gamer)
  • Cons: Fan bearings are dying after barely six months of use. Well ventilated case in a clean environment. No reason for fan to sound like an 90-year old with asthma!

Overall it's OK except the fan is loud.

  • Summary: I have a PC that is Intel Pentium 4. I have a LCD TV so I needed a video card to use my LCD TV as a dual monitor. I do not play any kind of games so when I was looking for a video card, I did not want to spend much money on it. My budget for this was going to be at most $50.

Worst Customer Service Ever

Tina Y., Newegg
5 November 2012
  • Summary: Oh on a side note, they might act like they have plenty of people taking care of you, but the same guy answers every inbound call. Also if you are trying to get the contact info for these guys, have fun, it is buried in their forums, in an obscure post.
  • Pros: When the card was working it was a beast. Played games with high-end needs w/o issues. Honestly, had the service been better, I would have given the card at least a 3 just based on how great it was before breaking. Had it worked right 5 easily.
  • Cons: Card started crashing my system. Customer service was terrible. After running the gambit of scanners, updates, cleaning everything, I decided that there was no other option than a faulty card, after contacting Zotac, it was overly obvious this was a very common issue. (Took me less than 2 min to ...

Great value card.

Craig P., Newegg
21 July 2012
  • Summary: Due to processor bottlenecking, I can't tell how well it would perform on games like Skyrim and Crysis or other physics/AI-heavy games, but I estimate that it would perform decently well on lower resolutions.
  • Pros: Great performance/power ratio. Cheap, best card in its price range. Runs all Valve Source and Modern Warfare games at max settings at 1280x1024 and still has juice to spare. Overclocks great.
  • Cons: Not as powerful at the later gen cards, but it still gets the job done. D-Sub/DVI converter is annoying to use. Not specific to this card though. No full-sized HDMI.

A perfect purchase

Loyd L., Newegg
14 July 2012
  • Summary: This system was scavenged from work, so it was new circa 2008 - 2009: Dell Optiplex 745 Stock Proc, mobo, stock power supply Core2 Duo (6600) @ 2.4 GHz 4 GB ram Win 7 x64 1x Os Hard drive, 7200 rpm 2x Striped hard drives for games, 7200 rpm PCIe 1.0 x16 slot on Intel mobo All I did was swap the...
  • Pros: I purchased this card expecting I was purchasing a low to mid range card at a decent price. I have put a spec comparison in the "other thoughts" section, so on with the pros! - supports dual monitors - does not need additional power plug - NVIDIA chipset - a great price for performance ratio - ea...
  • Cons: None so far

Very affordable, powerful, attractive to boot!

Paul G., Newegg
27 June 2012
  • Summary: I wish all cards packed this much bang for the buck!
  • Pros: This card was very affordable after rebate. I was upgrading from a 9500gt from 2008. This card is almost 3x as fast, runs more quiet and looks good sitting in my case. I keep my video cards 4-5 years on average, and this one is a keeper!
  • Cons: I wish it had a full size HDMI vs mini HDMI, but I think this was meant for low profile machines. At least it did not require a separate power plug, which is good.

Great so far

Aaron "Charger", Amazon
21 June 2012
  • Summary: I got this as a step up from the on-board graphics card so I could have more power/options playing Flight Simulator X. So far it's done a knock out job. I did have a little bit of an issue with the instructions.
