Get a taste of DirectX 10.1 technology with ASUS GeForce 210 VGA card. This entry-level graphics card delivers basic performance to deal with your daily work and entertainment needs. Fanless design and ultra low power consumption make it an ideal choice for HTPC and office where silent and cool operation has high priority. VGA, DVI and HDMI outputs let you easily build multi-display environment for multitasking. Complete with quality and reliability ASUS are known for, this VGA card delivers a solid performance boost for your video/photo editing, web surfing and Window 7 operation.
Pros: Perfectly QUIET!
Cons: Does not smoothly handle Windows Media Center, such as viewing the program guide while live TV plays in the background.
Other Thoughts: I bought this because it was fanless, and it is being used in a media center PC by the living room TV. This PC is basically my DVR using Windows Media Center. The picture quality is excellent. The only issue is that the video does not play smoothly in the background if I am viewing the programming guide. Once I exit the programming guide, the video immediately goes back to it's normal excellent quality. Intel i3 onchip graphics handled this smoothly, but the Intel driver would blue-screen crash daily when connected to my AV Receiver. I would recommend this ASUS card, but would suggest moving up to a 610 series with more memory for a media center application.
