5 out of 5 eggsIt Works!

Pros: I bought this card as a test card for working on systems. It works great for the kind of card it is. This is not a gaming card, thought I did push it to see what it would take. It ran everything I have, just not for very long, :-) then my screen would lock up. But If I wasn't running a high end game it did great.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: None!

3 out of 5 eggsOkay...

Pros: Cheap, no fan, no psu connection required, gets the basic jobs done.

Cons: I couldn't even play HD youtube with this. I just decided to get a used 9800 GTX+ instead, which gives 13x the performance.

Other Thoughts: If you got a mobo without integrated graphics and don't need much in terms of performance, definitely go with this card. With the rebate it's about $23. I would personally recommend going with intel HD 3000 though if your mobo supports it.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent basic card

Pros: Very silent card, no fans so there is no worry about sound. Works well for a primary display on a non-gaming or older machine, or secondary/multi display for other uses. Brought the Win7 "experience" total numbers up a full point on an older Athlon64 system. System responsiveness all around greatly improved, especially over onboard video.

Cons: I can see where the heatsink may interfere in using the nearest PCI/PCIe x1 slot, especially in SFF systems. Card has 512MB, "takes" another 512MB from system memory. Certain systems will need to keep the onboard VGA working until after the nvidia drivers are properly installed in the OS, as the card VGA port works intermittently, and the DVI not at all before then.

Other Thoughts: This is a lower end card designed to be used as a replacement for onboard video, not as a gaming card (unless your gaming consists of low end/old games). I added it to an otherwise strong running Athlon64 3500+ system with Win7 x64 and it took the Windows Experience numbers from 2.6 to 3.9, just with the addition of the card itself. Overall the speed and feel of the system just became so much better. The system responded faster all around, no longer lagged on video or flash usage and it allowed the Aero extras to be used if desired.
If you choose this generation of lower end cards, make sure the system has at least 3GB or more of memory as the card will "take" 512MB of system memory to make the card appear as if it has a full 1024MB of video memory.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price

Pros: Its low profile and has the brackets if I will make a HTPC in the future. Put it into my brother's computer. He doesn't game or anything but for the price, why not? Also frees up more ram since there is a IGP on the motherboard.

Cons: Passive heatsink? but then again I don't have to worry too much about dust settling on it.

Other Thoughts: Already received my rebate too. Just carefully read the instructions and take them literally.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Easy to install, supports Aero, gave me the duel monitor support i purchased it for.

Cons: None, great product

Other Thoughts: Heat sink is large, you'll loose a slot, just make sure you have the room for it in your case.

3 out of 5 eggsmild upgrade

Pros: Installed on Optiplex desktop, working fine, not that much better then original chipset video but it does give more options on resolution and refresh did improve, not a game card, not expensive, well built. If you don’t need VGA it is mild inexpensive upgrade for business and browser. One will get DVI and HDMI output cheap.

Cons: Low profile use makes it into 2 spaces card; it means wasted PCI slot and then on Dell desktop for example VGA has to be flipped over to the back then cable is almost too short for that: 1/16 inch less and would have to send it back or get your own VGA cable. Heatsink is rather crude – built with finer more ribbed element would be way better and smaller for no-fan card.

Other Thoughts: I did not ever bother with rebate – too many people fighting it. I figured I just save that postage and not get annoyed. Consider that and short VGA cable I would never buy MOBO from ASUS if this how they plan ahead. Magic word - "competition". Thereof - who needs whom?

1 out of 5 eggsIntel Chipset Problem

Pros: -

Cons: Incompatible with motherboard Intel chipset, IHC7R.
Card SMBus conflicting with the memory detection on the card, reports 1024MB.
Slow bios reading of card at boot, over 1 minute, card bios not displayed at boot, ram on card read incorrectly and system fan control with fanspeed inoperable after boot because of skewed SMBus. BTY, fans are controlled from the SMBus

Other Thoughts: Just wanted two monitor support, didn't bother trying. RMA in the works.

4 out of 5 eggsAsus En8400GS Low Profile video Card

Pros: Quick and easy Install. I seem to buy Asus a lot, two motherboards, and now this video card.

Cons: None that I have noticed thus far.

Other Thoughts: My video is crisper, and I can say that I now have an HDMI output from the PC, I can not 100% say that my browsing experience has improved though. I bought this as well as 2 GB of memory for my Moms PC cause it would hang on the web, some sites are still slow. I have not fully tweaked the card and MOBO however.

5 out of 5 eggsValue Low Profile Card

Pros: Option to install as a full height or low profile card. No fan included.

Cons: Heat sink is very large, and causes the card to take up two expansion slots, which most video cards do now anyway.

Other Thoughts: The low-profile mounting option actually uses two brackets so that all 3 of your connections are still available. The VGA connection mounts to the side of the DVI/HDMI, but is not a problem because the heatsink is taking up that expansion slot anyway.

I am not using this for a media center, I used it for a server install, but am still happy with it and had no problems with it. The chipset is overkill for a server, but the price and form factor were right.

Installed in a 2U server running Scientific Linux 6 and using nvidia-graphics drivers from ATrpms.
