4 out of 5 eggsGet 'er done video card

Pros: Inexpensive, dead quiet, is what it is, does what it's supposed to do, easy install

Cons: THIS PUPPY RUNS HOT! In my boss' not-well-ventilated case (he despises fan noise, one reason I chose this passive-cooled card) it was idling at 70°C Be sure you have good airflow in your case or this card will Chernobyl on you in no time.

Other Thoughts: Also put one of these in a rig I built for a local church to record, burn, and distribute their worship music.
The lineup:
Intel E8400, ASUS P5K Pro mobo, OCZ Platinum DDR2 PC-1066 (2GB), WD Caviar 1TB SATA3 HD, Samsung 22x DVD±RW DVD Burner w/Lightscribe, Gigabyte GeForce 7200GS 128MB, (2) Scythe S-FDB 12cm Cooling fans,Antec Sonata 3 ATX Mid-tower case, Logitech cordless desktop music system

2 out of 5 eggsHot?

Pros: Paid very little for this card after the mir. Works well and plays the older games that my 7yo plays.

Cons: Runs very hot!! 160 F idle Tried everything I could think of. Underclocked, backed off voltage, I even pointed a couple fans at it and still hot. Hot enough to smell the exhaust from the case.

Other Thoughts: Used this as a cheap way to upgrade my son from my latest upgrade. Too bad its a fire hazard

2 out of 5 eggsNOT LOW PROFILE

Pros: The card itself is a good card for the price.

Cons: This is not a low profile card. While it may fit in a low profile system - it doesn't come with a low profile face plate, and the vga plug in does NOT extend to a second slot - so you can't use this card alone for dual monitors... Very Disappointed as this is what I bought the card for.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, but can have fit issues

Pros: Low cost, PCIe16, Fanless. nVidia.

Cons: Installed onto a Gigabyte (ironic) GA-945GCM-S2C board. The heatsink actually will hit the card locking lever (light blue plastic hold-down) on the slot. You can move the heatsink around easily enough so it can be adjusted, just be sure that the heatsink remains in contact with the GPU. You would think Gigabyte would have thought of that, since they make both the board and this card. lol Doesn't seem to get too hot though, have installed a couple of these now.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad card for the money. My main reason in buying the fanless ones at this price range, is because the ones with a fan in this range usually start going bad after a year and make noise. I would rather they didn't.

3 out of 5 eggsCorrection

Pros: It WILL work in a low-profile situation. It is a low profile READY card, meaning the back plate needs to be replaced with another that IS low profile.

Cons: It does not include the low profile plate, you need to purchase that separately and elsewhere... thats a drag.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if they explicitly state you need to purchase a low profile back plate & offered one. Or if they would move it to be a low profile READY card, that would help make a difference as well.

1 out of 5 eggsHo hum...

Pros: not sure, never got it installed...

Cons: As stated above in a previous post, (I should have paid more attention!) the board itself IS low-pro, but the VGA connection extends of off the board, coming out the top of the bracket. I'm working with a 3.7" tall case, so it just wont fit.

Other Thoughts: poor design. If made for low-profile applications, they should have taken the VGA connection placement into better consideration.

2 out of 5 eggsWill not work in all low-profile situations

Pros: Inexpensive, supports dual monitors

Cons: Sold as "low profile" but will not work in Dell small form factor case that requires a low profile video card - card is too high and will not allow case to close.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to go in a Dell Optiplex small form factor case that requires a low-profile video card. Card itself is the right size - problem is the connector for the VGA port, which points UP instead of pointing out to the side. (like every other video card made) Makes the card just a little too high to fit in the case and allow it to close properly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat low profile card

Pros: Low profile fits my HP Slimline, DVI connection, quality and price. Excellent graphics for the price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought this for a HP slimline video upgrade. It fits perfect in the case after I switched to a low profile bracket which I also purchased from Newegg. It's only 128MB but perfect for my needs, I'm not a heavy gamer. Graphics look really good thru the DVI connection on an HP w1907 monitor. The smaller power supply in the slimline has no problem handling this card. It's also fanless which means it's very quiet as is the HP slimline.
