2 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC not so great for Hybrid Crossfire.

Pros: Its a great HTPC graphics card for the price. Does a smooth job on movies.

Cons: Terrible for using with a Hybrid Crossfire setup. The system studdered the entire time while trying to play certain games such as Darksector, and Rainbow Six Vegas. If your in the market for a hybrid crossfire card this is most definitely not it.

Other Thoughts: All in all its not a bad card to have on hand for a in case a graphics card would happen to go out or need for just a basic PC that you would want to play movies and music, definitely not a gaming graphics card.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks fine but I can't set up crossfire

Pros: The single card does what it's supposed to

Cons: I can't figure out where to plug in the crossfire bridge and the manual doesn't say much about anything

Other Thoughts: I bought a second one of these to crossfire link them and I can't for the life of me figure out where the bridge plugs into. If I had a halfway decent manual that would probably help. I couldn't even find a copy on the Asus website.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

This is not a crossfire capable card. Please check our website for crossfire capable cards. For more information, please contact our technical support at 812-282-2787 and reference case# NE397772.

5 out of 5 eggsRebate Complaint Amendment

Pros: Inexpensive, quiet, works for MoBo's that have "Hybrid" Crossfire capability.

Cons: None, now that I got my rebate check, other than the clueless rebate processing company that ASUS (and several other manufacturers on New Egg) hire.

Other Thoughts: This is to amend my review from a week or so ago about not getting my rebate. It arrived yesterday. Now I feel like the card was worth the price.

I just wish the rebate processing company knew what they were doing. Still not sure how they could have absolutely no record of my rebate paperwork, told me that it was of no use to search for my file by any other means other than my last name (rep told me that it was impossible for one of the processors to have accidentally misspelled my name when they originally entered my rebate application's info), and that my rebate form must have been lost in the mail -- a "catchall" scenario which they "are not responsible for".

So then how did I get a rebate check a week later?

Again, this is only a 10 dollar rebate, but I hope the manufacturers realize that for a customer like me, I factor the MIR into the net price of a product, and if I don't get it, then the product gains cost, loses value, and ultimately disappoints me (the consumer

1 out of 5 eggsRebate probably won't happen

Pros: Cheap, Silent

Cons: Since you may not actually get the rebate that you printed off, filled out, carefully read so that you wouldn't invalidate it, cut the UPC off the box and then taped it to the form, scanned a copy into your computer for your records, placed a stamp on the envelope and mailed it in to the correct rebate processing center's address, waited patiently for 3 months before deciding that you should check the status, you'll probably get a response like I did from the apathetic "Customer Service" rep:

"We're not responsible for lost mail".

My reply was: "How much mail can you guys possibly lose everyday???"

I was told to call back in 20 minutes when the supervisor's available to see if they'll let me re-submit... This is for a 10 dollar rebate! This card is not worth the money without the rebate.

--P.S., I submitted a MIR form for some OCZ memory I bought on the same day, to the same exact rebate processor, and I have the $30 check already...

Other Thoughts: Don't make your purchase expecting to receive a MIR. Instant rebates, yes. Mail in Rebates, don't count on it.

I don't care so much about 10 bucks from ASUS... I care about value when I buy products, and being able to trust that certain expectations will be upheld. My expectations for MIRs are now low.

5 out of 5 eggsHybrid with AMD 780G Raden3200 Chipset

Pros: Works great, I have a well ventilated case, so I haven't had any issues with heat on this fanless card. Hybrid with my ASRock AMD board's 780G Radeon 3200 IGPU chipset.

Cons: Neither Vista Ultimate or Windows 7 x64 gives me an Aero rating of higher than 3.6... Not that this matters, but it annoys me that the hybrid setup runs circles around any GUI hurdles Windows could throw at it, but because Windows must get confused around the hybrid Crossfire setup, it turns my Windows basescore to 3.6 (everything else is high 5's, low 6's)....

Again, I realize the windows score doesn't matter, but it annoys me.

Other Thoughts: When (and if) I finally get my rebate, this card will have cost like $20 or $30. Good value if you don't need some super powerful card, or if you're trying to hybrid crossfire.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Multimedia Card

Pros: Put this card in a Asus M3A78-EM multimedia board which supports Hybrid CrossfireX and it works great. Customer I built this computer for loves it playing movies on his 60" LCD tv. I have found that trying to stay within my customers final cost restrictions, using a board and video card that supports Hybrid Crossfire X or Hybrid SLI yields some pretty good performance for the money. Of course a HD 4870 would beat the pants off hybrid anything but like I said, cost restrictions are the mother of invention....

Cons: It does run a little hot. Installing a fan wouldn't hurt. There are different ways to do it. I had an old Pentium III heatsink and the way that the fan mounted on it was perfect for mounting on the fins on this video card heatsink.

Other Thoughts: I have used plastic ties and thick paper clips bent in the right way to hold the fan on to heatsinks. I have drilled holes strategically placed to screw the fan to the heatsinks on different cards. As long as what you do holds the fan on securely with no chance of coming loose you should be ok. I wish the video card manufacturers would allow for an optional fan mount on cards with no fan. I know they are designed to be silent with no fan but the case that the card goes into may not allow for enough air circulation around the card and a fan is necessary. A fan mount option should not add much to the cost of the card....

4 out of 5 eggsbuyer beware

Pros: Outstanding performer for the money!

Cons: Do not get this card if you aren't willing to tear your hair out with regards to the audio drivers. I finally got the motherboard drivers to work by installing both sets and then manually deleting the non-working audio drivers in the device manager. I probably spent 4 hours getting this straightened out.

4 out of 5 eggsNice card

Pros: This card works very nice I can play the best mmos with no problem world of warcraft, guild wars. fast fps rates and supports dual monitor configuration using extended desktop.
Cheap and looks nice more so than in the pictures.

Cons: The card gets kind of hot... I zip tied a case fan to the front of the card added a squirrel fan and it cooled down and worked fine. Asus smart doctor is a no good unneeded piece of junk software and caused my computer to crash during moderate game play.

Other Thoughts: Do not install Asus smart doctor I could not get my computer to stop crashing in games, and thought I would have to get a different card. I got a virus a month later and reinstalled windows and decided to not install the asus utilities, and guess what, my card worked fine and I never had another problem.

5 out of 5 eggsexactly what i wanted

Pros: It works, it's silent, just make sure there's some airflow. I have two of them on the machine, driving four monitors. So far no problems.

Cons: Couldn't get it to run under Ubuntu. YMMV

Other Thoughts: It's been ten weeks and I haven't gotten my rebate. Oh well, the stuff was cheap anyway.
