5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Works with Linux!

Cons: 1GB ram may be overkill... No way for me to know, since the 1GB works, but depending on your setup the 512MB may be a better deal...

Other Thoughts: Had AMD 780G onboard graphics, and an Ubuntu compatibility nightmare. This card was great, plugged in the S/PDIF wire, downloaded the proprietary drivers and have 3D acceleration with sound over HDMI. Horray!
Yet to get a Blu-Ray drive, but no reason to suspect it can't handle it once I sneak past the DRM.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Card

Pros: -A great low profile card
-Plays both 720p and 1080p files via VLC with little to no problems
-A great 1 GB addition to a small tower
-Very quite during use
-Simple to overclock, low temp

Cons: -Low profile bracket didn't suit my needs, had to get it cut in half
-Order Generation chipset, but that can be expected
-Very loud during startup

Other Thoughts: Worth getting, good deal for the price. Would get a newer chipset if I had more room and a larger PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: *1GB GDDR2
*128-bit
*Low profile
*it's ASUS

Cons: *Will Struggle with Next-gen Games (COD:MW2)

Other Thoughts: Runs COD4 @ 1024x768 (monitors fault) all settings on MED, 4xAA and looks great. was playing on a 7200GS (yes a laptop) and this in a HUGE improvement.

I will admit i doubt this is going to run COD:MW2, so i am upgrading to a 9800GTX, But for Gamers who like say: The Sims 2 or something last gen (HALO, CS, ect)this is an awesome card. I have played The Sims 2 on it and was amazed at how fast it was and how good it looked.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card for the price

Pros: Cheap
Plays WoW nicely

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I had to replace my graphics card on a budget, and figured what the heck, I'll order this one. It works nicely playing WoW, which is the main game I play.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: This card is pretty small, it should fit into shuttle cases and stuff pretty easly. Asus has good drivers to get off their website so no issues there for me.

Cons: Its a little deceiving for a 9 series card to me. I was upgrading from a 8500gt which was playing most my games at a very low setting. Upgrading to the 9 series was a very little improvement at that. I was unable to turn any settings up on excisting games but frames where better.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a cheap alternative to get my pc back up and running with a simple card that I could run medium settings on games like COD5, Call of Juarez, and prototype. This card will not play these games unless you downscale the resolution significantly which is no fun to me. So for adverage users who are looking to upgrade an excisting pc or build a new one. If gaming is something you would want to do, I suggest saving up a little longer and getting something else.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid card for a solid price

Pros: Took my Windows Experience rating for gaming graphics from 3.0 to 5.3, and regular graphics performance went from 3.6 up to 4.9 (which is the new base score for my PC). Installation was pretty self-explanatory (the latest 9400GT driver was easy to find on the NVIDIA website). Idles anywhere from 55 to 60 degrees Celsius most of the time, which is solid for a GPU. Fits well enough in my HP Pavilion Slimline.

Cons: There is an EXTREMELY small amount of horizontal-lined screen flicker on the VGA output that is only noticeable against certain hues at odd vertical viewing angles on my ViewSonic 19" widescreen LCD. Right now as I'm typing this I don't notice it at all, not even at extreme vertical viewing angles, and I never notice it unless I try to, so even if this isn't just my particular card it shouldn't be a deal-breaker for anyone. Also, the fan is somewhat louder than I'd like it to be.

Other Thoughts: This is a solid bargain (especially with the whole gigabyte of memory), and should be great for any mid-range gaming capability or just improving overall computer performance by getting off your motherboard's integrated video (which is why I bought this card).

5 out of 5 eggsI like it... a lot!

Pros: It's small. quite powerful. I was leery that it required no external powersource but it plays wow perfectly fine.
On another not. People. The audio part of the HDMI port DOES WORK. If you had payed attention to the manual and observed the extra cable they give you a spdif cable to plug into the video card and tie it into your audio card (mine is build into the mobo ) works perfectly fine..

Cons: Cons... I honestly have yet to have one.

Other Thoughts: Again. If you wand the audio portion of the HDMI port to work to a little research on your mobo/sound card. find the pegs to plug the extra cable into and your good to go.

1 out of 5 eggsMistake purchase

Pros: None

Cons: This was my first PCI Express card purchase, having stuck to just laptops for the last few years. Terminology that says "low profile ready" doesn't exactly suggest "low profile ONLY" to me, so I own a card that doesn't fit my ATX case. My fault for not being up on the terms, but the terms aren't exactly new user friendly either.

3 out of 5 eggsNot the card I expected

Pros: Easy to install drivers in both Vista and Windows 7 systems. The 1 GB memory is always a plus. Decent graphics when running on VGA or DVI. Boosted my Windows system rating by 2 points (example from 3 to 5). It is a low profile card for all of you building your HDCP or have small factor PCs. Has some neat programs and tools that can come in handy.

This card will run fine with a 300 Watt power supply unit, but remember that the power does depend on what other peripherals you have installed.

So you have a better idea, I am running:
- 1 CD/DVD drive
- 1 500GB Hard Drive
- AMD Athlon 64 Live! X2 Dual Core 2.5 Ghz
- 2.5GB of RAM
- 7.1 Sound Blaster sound card

Cons: **Do not get this card if you are hoping to get digital audio from the HDMI

- NVIDEA cards are a pain to have the digital audio installed correctly with SPDIF. I have tried connecting in every way the SPDIF pins to the card and motherboard, but still no audio (Do not try putting in different pins as it can be very dangerous to you and your PC). Perhaps my motherboard is defective or the card is. I am in the process in talking to ASUS about this, but it appears to be a common issue if you go to the ASUS forums for this card or read the previous comments in this Newegg review section

- Runs hot at 84C or 183F. I am still trying to find ways in cooling it down. It is also kind of loud for a small factor PC card

- I am running this with along with a 7.1 Sound card and it now makes the center speaker output this strange 'buzz' or electrical noise which did not have prior to the graphics card installation

- Low quality image when viewing in HDMI (I have a Panasonic Viera 32"

Other Thoughts: I am somewhat of a novice when it comes to NVIDEA cards and wanted to give NVIDEA a try this time and I can see what primary issue it can have regarding SPDIF audio.

One issue with a lot of card makers is that they do not provide a variety of individual form factor brackets. The low profile 'two' bracket combo is a pain to have as it will take up valuable bracket space.

Overall this card should primarily stay in the office and regular use PC environment. By adding an HDMI option it is giving a type of false idea that it will support what you expect from a 'High Definition Multimedia Interface'.

The graphics over HDMI have been average, not very crisp or clear. This card's performance is overall much better if viewed over VGA or DVI, but for that, I would have gone with an average card instead of one with 'HDMI'.
