5 out of 5 eggsSeems Good

Pros: Silent passive cooling.
Runs my 2 Dell monitors off DVI inputs perfectly.
I do not have an HDMI display, so I cannot speak to that.
Included drivers on disc are fine, no problems.
Windows Experience Index went from 6.4 with on board Intel graphics, to 7.1 with this card.

Cons: The only con I have is really not worth taking off an egg, because it has nothing to do with how the card works, but
the included booklet is very very minimal in directions and help.

Other Thoughts: I am not a big "gamer", but do play Call of Duty, run Google Earth, watch you tube, and movies off my hard drive, and do some medium photo editing etc, and all run flawless with this card.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card for a work machine

Pros: Bought the card to allow me to use three monitors with my work machine. Does the job very well. Installation was trivial, no issues installing drivers or configuring the card.

Card has worked perfectly with the three monitors, and I've got a 4th video port available if I ever have yet another monitor I want to hook up.

As I sit quite close to the computer I also like that it is a fanless design. No troubles with the card running too warm either, I was a little worried about that.

The card is quite tall due to the heat pipes but there are no issues at all fitting it into a standard sized case. My machine is a vanilla HP Z200 and the card has plenty of room between the upper edge of the card and the case.

I run Visual Studios, MS Office apps, and other similar business apps - for which the card works perfectly. I don't use the machine for any gaming at all so have no opinion on how the card would behave there.

Cons: Nothing, really.

Only thing that's close to a con is the card has a variety of video connectors on it. For me the mix was exactly what I needed to support the monitors I have. Someone else may find the selection of connectors less to their liking depending on their needs.

Other Thoughts: Glad I picked this card, the others I looked at I'm sure would have been good cards too, but this was the right card for me.

5 out of 5 eggsNice dead silent video card

Pros: Dead Silent - No fan
PCI-e X16 match
HDMI output

Cons: Tall, won't fit with side mounted case fan

Other Thoughts: We have two of them! My wife's AMD4170 Asus 990 turns graphics numbers of 7.2 with this card on a DVI monitor and my AMD8150 on a MSI 990 board shows 7.4 on an HDMI monitor. That is far more than we will ever need!! I hooked my PC to our 50 inch TV and rocked some games with the HDMI also driving the audio.

5 out of 5 eggsSilent performance, compatibility. Tall!

Pros: Silent. Great performance on par with much noisier cards. Plus NVidia famous interoperability and long term support for their hardware.

Cons: Tall heat pipes and large heat sink take up a lot of space. Needs to get some airflow around it if using for serious gaming.

Other Thoughts: Went with NVidia to get good Linux support+performance. Went with NewEgg because, well, you know.

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth Card and works great

Pros: This card has worked perfectly ever since I've gotten it. I was looking for a cheap card to use for temp. and this one fit it perfectly. No power supply 6 pin needed and runs at low temps. Runs battlefield 3 on High - Ultra Settings from 35-70 FPS. Getting the i5 4570 sometime this week already orded and it's on its way. So I will post better fps benchmarks when I get it. It is also great for the price.

Cons: Haven't had any.

Other Thoughts: Good price and runs Black ops 1 at 120 FPS on Extra.
Get this card if you are on a budget.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and does what I need it too do

Pros: Works well and cool even on hot days were i'm too cheap to turn the air conditioning on.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Both graphics and gaming score 7.1 on the Windows 7 performance score. More than enough for what I need it for.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget card

Pros: World of Warcraft video settings cranked to ultra on all settings, and it doesn't even hiccup. Great card if you are on a budget and are still looking for great performance. Looks great in the computer case too. Has two DVI ports and even has a VGA port, which not all cards have. Software works great, and I have been running it for a month straight without any problems.

Cons: None that I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Passive cooling
PCI 3.0
2 GB ram
Better heatsink then the 520 it replaced, runs cooler. (Runs 4 to 6C cooler idling and when in use.)

Cons: Because of the heatpipes it just barely fit into my computer.

Other Thoughts: Happy with the card - All of my video cards so far have been Asus cards, all of them have worked great. (First was a Radeon 3450, second a Geforce 520, and now this - All silent.)

The 520 was still good enough to run current games, but I decided to get a more powerful video card since I was already getting a new processor and more ram.
