Summary: Works beautifully! Had some issues at first getting it to work in Kubuntu 14.04, but after clicking on "Additional Drivers" tab in the "Software and Updates" found in the system settings, it allowed me to select the appropriate drivers. The selection automatically disabled the Nouveau drivers from Xorg which was originally interfering with manual driver installation which I've downloaded directly from Nvidia's website.
Summary: Terrific quiet card for home theater applications. It can also be used for gaming, albeit at lower settings than higher end cards. If you want a gaming card and cannot afford a new high end card, You're better off buying a one or two generation old high end model such as a gtx580 or r6970. As this card uses passive cooling, if you use it for gaming you run the risk of burning it up.
Summary: excellent card for htpc runs madvr 8 taps on all scaling options at 60 % with a phenom x3 270 8 gig ram this has the same cuda and compute as the as the 640 n 650 any hardware acceleration gains beyond this card encoding decoding etc would require gtc 650ti and up this card does gaming well at default settings hard core gamers go up the laddet this card is a perfect replacement for any sff pc with a 220 watt power supply acer, dell, gateway
