This low profile card from HIS is just the thing for building an HTPC in a small case. It has two dual-link DVI outputs and an HDTV out that supports S-Video and component outputs. It also has a PCIe x16 interface for maximum data bandwidth.
The ATI Avivo engine is include for encoding or decoding the latest video formats including MPEG 2 and 4, DivX and H.264.
Pros: This is a perfect card for the extra umph in a slim case. the low profile slots of the case I went with limited my Video card choices darstically... though this does the job quite nicely. allows for moderate gaming at best, though perfect for MS office/internet browsing/etc...
Cons: If one expects to get an home office based video card with a little extra power, there are no cons.
Other Thoughts: Go to HIS's website to download the drivers. Without this the motherboard I used coughed a little bit before booting up properly.

Pros: I bought this for an elderly lady that needed 2 monitors to use her vision software - ZoomText.
Cons: none really, with the exception of the driver installation. I didn't want the 200 meg Cataylyst control SW so I went to ATI's site and pulled down the driver w/o the extra 200 meg..

Pros: - wanted dual-digital to support side-by-side 19" widescreens (fun to install)
Cons: - not a con but an advisory...
Other Thoughts: - ATI chipset driver install was well produced, the option to install the driver alone or a litany of "complimentary" software with it was appreciated.
