Summary: Yup, I had to use the kit and use two card slots to get this card to fit into my low profile cabinet. And it was difficult because the length of cord they give you is not quite long enough to reach. The card went in good but the software on the disc they provided kept locking up my computer telling me to go in and adjust my bios. I did what it said with no luck. The computer would only detect one display even though both were connected.
Summary: I should have done a little more research before purchasing this product.. Easy install and Good product for the price but def not something to push games through.. We have this installed on our home cpu that everyone uses and i have several games on.. I was looking for something that would load games faster and stream HD video to our LG TV but this is barely an upgrade from the factory gpu.. if your looking for an hdmi port this will work but lacks as an upgrade..
Summary: Works for what I wanted, I needed a card that would fit in my slim dell that didn't need a big power supply (it says it requires 400w, I used a 220w). I needed to get something better than my integrated graphics and was inexpensive, this was the answer. I can now run minecraft at 40-60 fps instead of 20-30. Great card for the price.
Summary: Works great!! This is not going to be the fastest video graphics card out there... But that is not what these video cards are for. In my case I had to fix a friend's HP Pavilion Slimline s5510f that had a bad internal graphics card port. The problem with these Slimline Desktop Computers is that 1. They require low profile compatible video cards (such as this one) and 2.
Summary: For my motherboard, the best on the market, You can only go down from here. My motherboard came with a 6200 HD Recommendation size for optimum performance. This works much better with no quirks. A perfect card for my Gigabyte motherboard, with the above recommendation.
Summary: I originally got this card to upgrade a 2000 something another old dinosaur video card. I didn't like how it worked with Windows on an Intel chip computer. Upgraded to the GT 630, no complaints with it. It wasn't until recently I sparked an idea to run Snow Leopard on my computer, and do it hackintosh style. WELL. I did integrated video, and it was stuck at one resolution. I put in my 630, same problem. It wasn't until early this morning that I remembered my Radeon.
Summary: The MSI company refuse to pay the $5 rebate, this is a fraud/scam. I submit a copy of invoice and they said they did not have it. However, they dare to show me the scanned document, the invoice is in there. MSI refusing to pay $5 rebate while all the documents is there. MSI cannot afford pay $5, what a joke.
