Summary: Ill keep it sweet... for the price you CANNOT beat this card. Straight up. Regardless if you are looking to use it as an everyday upgrade over your crappy On Board or if you are looking to game. Believe it or not this card can support gaming.
Allows the latest version of Google Earth to run under w/XP

Summary: I guess I'm a modern-day Luddite as I am clinging to w/XP. Google won't just come out and list cards that support it and NVidia won't either. Finally an NVidia call center tech pointed me so close to the specs of each that I could choose this one. All of the "hotter" cards start with w/7. The card is supporting an analog monitor and a DVI in my long-time two monitor setup... and has an HDMI port which I've never tried.
Should have gotten a higher bit rate (like 128, 256, or higher). But works fine.

Summary: This was a HUGE upgrade on my old Acer computer. I ignorantly bought a 2GB thinking that I was getting something awesome (for my non-gaming uses; I watch streaming videos and DVDs on a 30" monitor, 2560X1600 resolution). Instead, I would have probably done better with a 1GB with a much higher bit rate. I don't really do anything that requires a whole 2GB memory, so the higher bit rate would have given me a faster communication.
Summary: This card can run any game but if a game has higher spec than u have to but it in low settings. But i think thats ok with me though i dont have lots of games that has higher settings. This graphic is great for small factor form pc, i took me forever to find the right one for the pc, remember to find a power supply for this unit or it will be burn down. Must have a 300w for a min.
Summary: Have used this card to play Civilization 5 for a few months. So far very happy with it. Although it is not an expensive one, it can handle 1920x1080 with high quality settings. The game runs much smoother than the Intel HD graphic with 3rd gen i5. Under burning conditions, the temperature is maintained around 57 degree C. Looks like the passive cooling fins working quite well. It is also much much quieter than the other desktop in my house with fan cooled 8600gGT.
Summary: I wanted something rather inexpensive that would allow me to run World of Warcraft at a higher graphics settings than the onboard video would (which was low). I can easily maintain 50fps at "high" and 30fps at "ultra" (with a few laggy spots when in crowded cities). This adapter was perfect for me.
Summary: Fanless GT 640 2GB: The good and the bad. First would be the lack of fan noise, I should point out that a GT 640 shouldn't come with a very noisy fan anyway because it's only a 65 watt GPU, but if you're pursuing silence it all adds up. The cooler seems to be very effective according to my monitoring program, normally showing only a few degrees above ambient temperature. As for its speed, it's a noticeable jump up from Intel graphics.
Great silent graphics adapter if you have space for it

Summary: Excellent fanless, high performance, high resolution, dual monitor graphics adapter. Attention: cooling fins wrap around the back side of the card, thus requiring more width than two card slots.
