5 out of 5 eggsIt did what I asked

Pros: Low Cost, quiet, fits inside store-bought computer case if you have the correct PCI slot and a case with three expansion slots - otherwise the heatsink will probably be too large. No extra power-cabling required.

Cons: None. I got what I wanted for the price and the project I was using it for. The sheer size will probably be a no-go for many smaller cases.

Other Thoughts: Not a gaming card, 1080p video is good. Having said that, this was installed in an old Vista PC that could not play LIMBO stock, but now it can. Dual monitor worked - a 1080p HDTV is in the HDMI port, the computer's monitor is run by the VGA and they work simultaneously. Digital-download full-length hi-def movies play thru VLC player with minimal and sometimes no hiccup. But it should be noted that the PC's CPU/chipset where this was installed is quite possibly the bottleneck.

This card has extended the life of a nearly useless and grossly out-of-date computer for just about a year and it is still going. For those with an older computer, simple needs and no desire for high-end gaming, this is an excellent alternative to buying an entirely new computer. If you have the space in your case, of course.

1 out of 5 eggsangry

Pros: HA!

Cons: everything

Other Thoughts: im very disappointed in this. All I wanted was to play some of my computer games, and it seems like my old graphics card is more reliable than this one. The driver that came with this crashed my computer. I had to enter safemode and disable the driver, uninstall the driver, and use windows vga only driver to access my pc. I have tried many different methods. the vga and hdmi dont work with it either. I dont want to pay extra money to send it back to you. I would rather go somewhere else and buy a new one than waste my money on sending it back. It took quite a bit of time even convincing my wife to let me buy one in the first place, now I have to hear her b1tc* at me because this one made my computer act like it was on some trippy dr0gs. Im hoping this didnt cause any permanent damage to my OS. Im running win 7 Ultimate, and this is the 1ST time I have ever had any problems. So no I'm not paying you to send something to you. And hopefully this does not slow my computer business down much at all.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value for the money

Pros: Cheap dual display card.

Cons: Huge heat sink may cause fit problems.

Other Thoughts: Had to trim a couple of fins off the heat sink with a Dremel tool to make it fit in a Dell Optiplex 7XX series box. Not a big deal. Any passive cooling card is going to have a big heat sink. It's not going to fit every box.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Low Profile Card

Cons: Everything, but that is because it does not even work. This card is DOA.

Other Thoughts: If this card was not DOA then maybe it would be a bit better then one egg...

5 out of 5 eggsAsus 8400GS 1GB

Pros: Standard HDMI port, simple installation, and low power consumption with silent operation. Perfect for HTPCs running Windows 8.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I have two 512MB versions of this card that have worked great for two years. Have not tried to use any of these cards for gaming or 3D, but work perfectly for regular video playback.
