4 out of 5 eggsGood Upgrade of HP Slimline

Pros: Affordable, low power consumption, low profile card with DVI out. Very quiet fan under normal IDLE conditions that makes noise only when under a load.

Cons: A little too long for an easy fit in my HP 3220 slimline media center. It requires that you bend a soft metal bracket behind the rear of the HP pocket bay, and creative cable routing.

Other Thoughts: This 8400GS with an X2 5200+ benchmarks are similar to my X800GTO AGP/AMD XP 2500+ rig. It scores around 13000 points on 2001SE. Not modern gamers scores, but it whips the onboard solutions available handily.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Low Profile Card

Pros: This is a very good card as long as you are not going to be doing any heavy gaming. I put this in a Dell Vostro 200 Slim computer and it fits great. The onboard Intel graphics had a Vista rating of 1 (yea, that's right - 1), and this card boosted the score to Aero of 3.6 and gaming to 4.5. The only game I have on this computer is Guild Wars (which is a couple years old) and it runs it at the highest settings.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Excellent price. It meets our needs exactly. It is a low profile card that fits in a slim line case. We are using it at a 1920 x 1080 resolution over DVI cable and it works fine.

Cons: umm...It wasn't free?

Other Thoughts: We need this for a manufacturing application. We are presenting plant status information on a 52" HDTV display in a control room. We need great resolution so that fonts are readable.

We bought one as prototype and ordered a second one the same day the first one showed up.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great in the HP Slimeline Models

Pros: This card works great. Fits in the HP Slimline models without any issues. The fan does add some additional noise, but not enough to really matter much. The graphics scores are much better than the stock video chip on the MB.

Cons: The HD adapter plug is pretty much useless. No color when hooked to a flat screen lcd via the component cables. The adapter also does not securely hold.

Other Thoughts: If you adjust your diplay settings and use the DVI plug to run to your TV via a DVI to HDMI cable or DVI to DVI cable you can get a great picture. Also, attach you computer monitor to the VGA connector and you can use both at the same time by setting your NVIDA Control Panel to the dual conf settings...works great at 1080i. Rated a 4 of 5 because of the HD Component connector.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little card!

Pros: If your looking for a solid card for your HP Pavillion Slimline 33XX series, this card does the trick. Vista Aero score went from 3.0 to 3.6, Graphics gaming up to 4.5. It runs stable without any glitches.

Cons: Only thing I can think of is the fan adds a little more noise to your box, but it's not really too bad.

Other Thoughts: I'm not really a gamer, so can't really comment on that side of the house. Hooked it up to my LCD Flat Screen TV, picture was good with the DVI at native resolution, not so great when trying to use component cables in HD720 mode. Did not do too much experimenting yet, but works as expected.

4 out of 5 eggsDual monitors in any PC w/ a PCI-E slot!

Pros: We've been purchasing these from Newegg for Dell Optiplex PCs at my office. I originally decided to try this out for an co-worker's system due to the fact that it comes with two low-profile brackets for both the DVI and VGA connectors. It will allow you to move the VGA port to both the left and right of the video card (for cases with no slots to one side). Switching to the low-profile brackets and moving the VGA port to the left (back-side) of the card yields a slightly tight cable, but works without any problems.

Cons: Not ideal for anything like gaming (horrid 3D acceleration performance in-line with x400 series designation), but perfect for office use or casual home-use. Obviously the use of this card is for pure functionality, not performance.

Other Thoughts: Newegg always has some of the best prices and fastest shipping. We use them for component upgrades and PC peripherals at my workplace, and I use them for the majority of all of my personal purchases.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card!

Pros: Easy install. Was able to change out the bracket with the low profile bracket with no problem. Working great so far.

Cons: It does not have GDDR2 memory like it says. It actually has DDR2.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, retail stores are selling for $89.00. Low profile design is easy to fit into most cases. It is a moderate upgrade to onboard video. Raised performance score in Vista to 3.5 for Aero interface and 4.4 for gaming graphics. Intel integrated GMA 950 graphics were running 2.9 on both.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsLow Profile, but overpriced

Pros: Low profile card, includes l-p brackets. Cheap card. Runs decently cool (45c idle). Quiet (but underpowered) heatsink fan.Overclocks to 500MHz CPU with 450 MHz DDRbus.

Cons: Not what I was expecting from PNY. Benchmarks put the Foxconn card ahead of this, and it costs less than this.

Other Thoughts: If you need low profile, get it. otherwise, get a foxconn or XFX, because overclocking abilities are significantly greater on those cards. Actually ships at 459 MHz, not 450.
