5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed in order to work!

Pros: Just what I needed to have Dual screens (for job) and watch HD content without the lag. Low profile Brackets were perfect for my small form factor PC (HP 6000 Pro).

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, reliable

Pros: I have installed 3 of these in different home computer/htpc setups. They are quiet (obviously), run cool, and put out great video. More than enough for any htpc, home computer, or light gaming rig.

Cons: None that I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little card

Pros: Small, so would fit into the low-profile case. HDMI output. Low power consumption - only several watts when idle (and stays cold). May get hot when needed, of course. Simple installation.

Cons: Not a powerful card. You may watch 1080 video nicely, but it is not for games. The resolution is limited to 2560x****.

Other Thoughts: Works over a year now for me, and I noticed that the temperature of HDD and CPU, and also inside the case is measurably lower now (I had 8600GT before).

4 out of 5 eggsAdequate cooling, not for old games

Pros: The card is equiped with a heatsink that occupies 2 slot spaces, it is secured to the PCB with screws and able to cool the card very well in temperature range from 42 to 62 °C (idle and full load) with high ambient above 27 °C. There is potential for overclocking.

Video quality from the VGA connector is high, and better compared to Intel northbridge graphics, despite the way this connector is attached. Two additional low profile brackets are bundled, which allow all three video ports to be used in a low profile chassis.

nVidia drivers permit custom display modes and refresh rates to be set with this card, which will allow it to be synced with future monitors, or applications that don't support the native resolution of a display. Even standard modes can be overriden, and all custom modes are available in games too.

Video playback is hardware accelerated. Without DXVA, both RGB and YUV/12 playback is about 15% faster than with onboard graphics. DXVA works well with Media Player Classic and allows to play back most H.264 files with insignificant CPU usage. Both DXVA and hardware-assisted YV12 upsampling are available for at least three simultaneously playing videos, which is handy for quality comparison.

GT 610 runs 3D games released in 2002-2006 at 1024*768 @ 75 fps with moderate to high settings. A notch above in either the release year or resolution is still playable. I am impressed with the gaming performance.

Cons: The backplate of the card is rather flexible and must be secured in the chassis firmly on both ends, or it will bend when VGA is plugged in. It may not be possible to insert both the VGA D-Sub and HDMI connectors at the same time in some chassis due to the way they are positioned.

The card will attempt to detect connected displays on boot-up, and output no video (!) if a display is not connected or powered on at the time. To get video, the system must be rebooted again. The card will attepmt to read the native resolution of a connected display and upscale DOS and low resolution graphic modes.

First and second generation 3D games and some DirectDraw games with no 3D component, released in 1997-2000, will not run on this card at all (!). They will either crash or display heavy graphic corruption. Curiously, it does support VESA modes for old DOS games.

DXVA worked for me only with mod16 picture sizes, and in-loop deblocking showed noticeable banding, which is still preferable to no video at all. By default the drivers are configured to output studio color levels also on RGB monitors, which must be adjusted in the control panel to get good contrast.

Only compatible with Windows XP SP2 and above. The driver will install on SP1 and be fully functional (including OpenGL, D3D and DXVA), but without the control panel. No support for Windows 2000.

The drivers are huge. The core driver without the control panel is 80 MB.

Other Thoughts: With the large heatsink, the card's appearance is almost "professional". It looks very good on my blue Gigabyte motherboard, and next to another blue E-MU sound card.

A video card, as an output device, should not attempt to adjust its frequencies depending on the connected display. Any information read from them must be purely informative. The display must either sync to the card or fail to. Because video adapters attemted to guess the right modes, numerous old cards are not compatible with wide-screen today.

Good cooling and ability to add display modes were the key reasons I picked this card.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product but.....

Pros: Satisfied with the Gigabyte product itself and Newegg service and shipping.
Easy install and improved graphics as a result.

Cons: Don't let the manufacturers rebate influence you buying decision.
I opted for the "no wait" rebate, where you forfeit 2 dollars of the rebate and get the rebate in 5-7 days. After much copying and sending in forms and proof of purchase and all, they denied the rebate! Said I didn't include an invoice copy. Which I DID include in the initial package. Sent it Again and they decided to approve it. Today, I got my rebate in the form of an American Express gift card, not a check as they were supposed to send.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat video card for the price

Pros: * Has 3 video connections which can all be used simultaneously for a multi-monitor setup.
* Fanless design - that's all I ever get because I get sick of trying to find specialized fans when they eventually seize up. Zero noise is excellent for HTPC environments.
* Good speed for average use, especially considering the price.
* Mail-in rebate returns almost half your investment, and Gigabyte is very good about paying.
* Newegg shipped in a rather large box, well protected.
* NVidia's drivers are good, and their configuration utility is easy to use.

Cons: * Not good for intensive high-res gaming, but you likely already knew that based on the price.

Other Thoughts: I replaced an ATI Radeon HD 4350 with this because it had color issues on my secondary monitor. These problems went away if I made it my only monitor, so it wasn't the monitor. Slapped this in, uninstalled the AMD Catalyst software and installed the latest nVidia drivers for my Windows 7 64-bit rig. No issues at all, and the colors on the second monitor are good. Lots of image adjustment options with the nVidia Control Panel software, too.

One weird thing I had with the Radeon is that when I updated the software, it would always set the overscan to 15% for whatever reason. I'd have to dig around and find it each time and set it back to 0% so my image was full-screen. I've never had that issue with this or any other nVidia-based video card, so in that respect, this is a little easier to setup.

If you're looking for a capable multi-monitor video card and you won't be playing high-res, fast action games, this is an excellent candidate.

2 out of 5 eggsNot so good

Pros: I thought it would be better than my 7200 gs or my HD 4350.

Cons: This turned out to be not so good for my HTPC. I put it in thinking it would be better. I had owned a 7200 gs and a HD 4350 that when playing back recorded video they would not cause screen tear. I put this GT 610 and my video was playing back horrible on recorded TV. Movies were fine. To confirm this I put back in my HD 4350 and the screen tear was gone.

Other Thoughts: I tried to have this card work for me. At first I thought it was the drivers from Nvidia web site. Did a clean install and put the ones off the disk it came with. Seemed to be better play back but still not to the standard of the other cards I have had in this same machine. :(

4 out of 5 eggsNice Video Card

Pros: I had a cheap Diamond Radeon card in one PC that had a fan go out. Every Radeon card I have ever owned suffered from fans going bad. A couple years ago, I purchased a fanless NVidia card from Newegg for another PC, that has since sold out. I decided to give this Gigabyte GV-N610SL-1GI a try, and am glad I did. Right out of the box it was plug-n-play. I installed the latest driver from Gigabyte's website, and it worked fine. Within 2 days, NVidia came out with a new driver update and I installed it. I tested the card out on ARMA II Operation Arrowhead to see what it could do. On the game's highest settings, it was struggling, but when I dropped the video quality option down from Very High to High, the game smoothed out tremendously. So, it may not rock the hottest video games as well as some, but this card does a pretty good job for the money. The PC I have it in isn't really a game machine anyway, so I am more than happy with it's performance. And best of all, there is no fan to wear out, and that annoying screeching sound of the bad fan is gone, replaced by blissful silence!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Silence is golden! No fan to wear out is nice!
