1 out of 5 eggsNO BOOT

Pros: Low cost.

Cons: PC does not boot with this card. Power supply adequate, other manufacturers cards in slot work.

Other Thoughts: Have had card for 37 days. Should have built machine as soon as received but waited 7 days past return window. My bad.

2 out of 5 eggsVista & XBMC no-go

Pros: cheap (provided rebate comes through)

Cons: Installed this on a HTPC upgraded from XP to Vista. Card works but XBMC will not run under any circumstance. Swapped to a Win8 box and it did (and competitor's card with identical chipset DID work with Vista & XBMC!) Some caution is warranted depending on your intended use...

Manufacturer Response:


This is Raymond from PowerColor. We apologize for the issue that you faced with the card. Please be aware, compatibility with other software depends on the software manufacturer and the support that they provide. You can email me at and we can troubleshoot the card together.

Best Regard,

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work in old PC with PCI E 1.1 slot.

Pros: None

Cons: This video card didn't function at all in a PCI E 1.1 slot as stated in previous reviews. System has plenty of power. Also, BIOS is no longer being updated for the computer I’m trying to update, so don't tell me to contact the motherboard manufacturer for a BIOS update. Overall, this video card just isn’t a good product because it isn’t backwards compatible.

Other Thoughts: The Newegg staff was very helpful in completing the RMA and refund.

However, I don’t recommend this card for anyone planning to install it in a PCI E 2.0 or earlier slot.

5 out of 5 eggsFunctions as expected

Pros: It works well fire my use - surfing the web and paying videos through TV on my old desktop computer. Has HDMI output. Silent operation (no fan).

Cons: Nothing for me. The included low profile bracket supports only HDMI and DVI jacks - not VGA.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't expect to get rebate

Pros: fanless

Cons: Did not get rebate. Product is not worth it without the rebate

Other Thoughts: PowerColor is untrustworthy. Don't buy from them, can't trust them to send rebates, can't trust them to honor warranty if things go wrong.

4 out of 5 eggsPassive Cooling

Pros: Quiet. Steady. It gets the job done. I'm not gaming on it.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I've had it running nonstop for a couple weeks now, and things seem pretty cool. I have just the one case fan and another 120mm fan on the radiator of the cpu hydro cooler. the psu is passive cooling as well. no heat management issues. the load on the PC is, however, minimal. using as home server.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd one of these I have bought

Pros: Cheap video cards with 1gb ram. Works okay for HTPC rigs or low-budget builds. Low profile bracket. Passively cooled and quiet!

Cons: Old technology. Don't expect to do much more than flash gaming on this card. Will run video at 1080P though. You get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I have bought two of these now. One was for an HTPC build that I have since sold. This one I just needed a cheap card for a build with a motherboard with no on board video.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card for the price

Pros: 1) A lot of Video for the low price.
2) Passive cooling for a quiet experience and no fan to go out on you
3) Low profile adapter included
4) PowerColor actually sends a check with rebates instead of putting it on a card
5) A full 1GB of memory

Cons: I cant really complain for the price

Other Thoughts: For the price it is a nice card with multiple connections on the back.
