5 out of 5 eggsvery satified for the price and performance

Pros: was a cheap upgrade to run dual monitors or in my case my tv and computer monitor...fit perfectly into a dimension 4700c after swapping brackets. bought it in august no issues so far..plug in play in my case the software included ran it fine.

Cons: none its better then the integrated card and if i was a gamer i would not be buying this card. in that matter i wouldn't own a tiny old dell =)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great in Ubuntu 9.10 with Dual Head

Pros: 2 monitors setup works great in Ubuntu 9.10. Using the Nvidia-glx-185 driver from Synaptic. Much lower processor overhead when using emulators. Can now play YouTube HD clips full screen, unlike Intel video. The price is unbelievable!

Cons: It was a bit of trial-and-error getting the card to work and getting the right drivers installed, but it was definitely worth it.

Other Thoughts: You will be able to boot into Ubuntu without installing the drivers, BUT, make sure you turn off the Compiz effects or you'll get a blank white screen when logging in. Had to figure this out the hard way. Also, I couldn't get the latest downloaded drivers from Nvidia working, since you needed to boot into a console without X starting up to install it, but wasn't sure how to do that. The nvidia glx drivers work great, so I'm happy with that.

5 out of 5 eggsA Fine Card So Far

Pros: Inexpensive, quiet, and has a composite video out.

Cons: Relatively low peformance (but that is to be expected).

4 out of 5 eggsGV-NX72G512E

Pros: Fanless.
Great image quality.
Will work with older OSs.
Low power consumption.
Cheap.

Cons: Driver issues with less common resolutions--Windows 7 64-bit are really bad in this regard.
TV output is composite.
Heatsink is not attached firmly.
Good airflow is a must.

Other Thoughts: Needed to continue running Windows 2000 on my computer that my film scanners are hooked to. GeForce 7 series seem to be the most powerful cards that officially support W2K and also support DirectX 9.

Temperature can vary greatly according to the airflow. With my case open, GPU temperature was 55°C. - 57°C. With case closed, case fan on low, and left side vent partially blocked by external objects, GPU temperature went up to 65°C. to 67°C., at which point the nVidia temperature graph turns from green to yellow. Putting the case fan on medium and correcting obstructions took GPU temperature down to 45°C. to 47°C. That is 10-11°C. warmer than my CPU, but acceptable.

Different versions of nVidia's Windows 7 64-bit drivers give different reports about what resolutions my monitor can support. Unfortunately, none of them are correct, and none of the versions' "Custom Resolutions" tools work for me.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very good image. It came with tuning software that allows you to overclock easily. it actually has pretty good performance for the price.

Cons: The GPU runs very hot with stock passive aluminum heatsink. under load 56-58c with no OC. I installed a copper fan heatsink and with minor mods to the hs, I got it to fit my mobo.

Other Thoughts: The price is very cheap for the performance. if you don't mind adding and modding a fan cooler it is a keeper. If you use the stock heatsink i wouldn't expect it to last long at those temps, especially if you plan to use the included OC software.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Works great. Composite out is very useful. 256MB of vram is very nice and give nice smooth action for media center apps.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsOnboard is better!

Pros: Overclocks a ton, but it doesn't help.

Cons: Got this card off a friend for dirt cheap, but it's going in the garbage can. This is an absolute waste of $25. Windows 7 experience gave it a 4.0 aero and 3.5 gaming, not that you could ever use it for any games. I overclocked it to 700mhz clock speed and 1000mhz memory speed, and it bumped it to 4.3 aero and 3.7 gaming.
Onboard graphics score 4.8 and 4.5.
Graphics are horrible, sharp edges and distorted images. If I could give it negative eggs I would.

Other Thoughts: For all those wondering since the specs aren't listed, stock clock speed is 450 and memory is 800.

PLEASE whatever you do, buy a video card that atleast uses DirectX10. DirectX9 is so outdated.

4 out of 5 eggsProbably a good card

Pros: DVI-I, VGA, and RCA out.

Cons: Apparently my Gigabyte Mobo defaults to only booting PCI slots so since I don't have integrated video on the board, I cant see anything to set this up. So now I have to to go by a PCI video card just to set the BIOS so this card will work. So what's the point of buying this then?

1 out of 5 eggsNot a low profile video card out of the box.

Pros: Price.

Cons: Not a low profile card out of the box. The 2 low profile brackets do not came with the card.

Other Thoughts: Never used the card so this review has nothing to do with the video card performance. This review is about Newegg kind of misleading me, and me hoping that the 2 brackets were included eventhough they were not in the product pictures. I was needing a low profile card and this card can not be made to be low profile the way it comes in the box.
