4 out of 5 eggsGood card.

Pros: Quiet as a whisper and didn't cost a fortune, easy on my PSU and stays nice n' cool.

Cons: Doesn't seem to be happy about stressful situations, will notice some framerate spikes under intense graphics but still trucks on through.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't have SLI but I don't necessarily need that kind of setup for what I do on a daily basis.

5 out of 5 eggsHDMI audio works in W7

Pros: Performs as expected and yes HDMI audio works in Windows 7. I'm not sure why it didnt work in windows vista as it ids the same exact card.
Windows 7 ranks it as 6.4 for Gaming graphics

Cons: Windows 7 ranks it as 4.8 for Aero Graphics

Other Thoughts: I may have been unfair in my previous review since the HDMI audio works quite well in Windows 7. Furthermore, I have owned dozens of Gigabyte products over the years and they have ALL been qulity procts.

2 out of 5 eggsNO HDMI Audio useless for HTPC

Pros: The HDMI video works

Cons: No audio from the HDMI. Windows says everything is installed and working but no actual sound. I'm useing Vista now but I will try it again after Upgradeing to Windows 7 later on this week but I doubt it will suddenly start working.

Other Thoughts: Here's the thing, I'm not even sure It's even supposed to be capable of sending sound out the HDMI as there is nothing about it in the documentation. My fault really for not checking the Docs BEFORE buying. I just assumed that it did since all the other HDMI capable cards I've owned had Sound. It still gets 2 eggs though because I'm chapped about this.
Major disapointment, I'll throw it up on the shelf for now, maybee I can find a use for it down the road.

3 out of 5 eggsnot so low profile

Pros: it is a gigabyte. Just being gigabyte gets 3 eggs.

Cons: The VGA cable attached to the card is inverted and impossible to attach to a bracket on the slot on the case. Unless you have extra VGA extender cables to reach from this card. You will sacrifice VGA and only have the HDMI/DVI to work with if you desire to go LOW Profile.

1 out of 5 eggsLow Profile Included for What!?!

Pros: ...

Cons: This comes with a Low Profile Adapter. Something that was key in my search for a replacement part for a slim PC. However, unlike other cards from this manufacturer, the VGA Header Pins are at a right angle upward right at the top of the card, extending up above the low profile adapter. So even if I was willing to give up the VGA Port, the case wont close!!! Design it properly!
