4 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: PCI-e X1 Slot support
works with onboard Intel Video controller, allowing three displays

Cons: Uses two back panel slots, blocking one of two PCI slots
Manual does not apply to card.

Other Thoughts: Using this card in a Dell Optiplex GX520, a sort of pseudo low end business system. Not for games or other 3D video application; used for multidisplay of science and development applications. Fan noise is not a problem, at least i don't hear it for a lot of reasons.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it! Love it!! Love it!!!

Pros: In the PCI Express x1 world, this card is king. Runs all the monitors we throw at it without any problems. Easy install, plus we got a $30 mail-in-rebate to boot! Cost is well worth it.

Cons: We use the card strictly for business use, we have tried a few games on it, and it really isn't going to handle much of the new stuff out there. Works great on classics like Star Craft though :-)

4 out of 5 eggsNice PCIe x1 Video Card

Pros: Fit in PCIe x1, x4, x8 slot nicely.

Cons: Come with double-width brackets (even for full height)

Other Thoughts: To fit in my Dell PowerEdge SC1430, I have to make a full height single-width bracket ( I use one monitor only).
Like other ATI video cards I have, when I setup 1920x1200 mode @60Hz, the drivers (for Windows XP SP3 and Windows 2003) can not select the mode correctly (windows desktop was set to 1920x1200 but monitor is running at ether 1600x1200 or 1440x900). My other GeForce Video card can setup 1920x1200 correctly for the same monitor.
BTW, I use a Belkin KVM swith which may contribute to the issue. This is why I did not put this issue to Cons.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: Its colorful....

Cons: I bought this as a second card. Upon installing I instantly got an error w/ the driver installation on my x64 vista. Upon further research apparently this is an ongoing problem. When I contacted ATI for support, the recommended a new motherboard or a new power supply. (Like I'm going to buy all new equipment for an underpowered video card)

Never buying another ATI again.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm.

Pros: It does everything you want it to.

Cons: Low Profile. Not a regular size. I made it work.

Other Thoughts: Probably going to be a 2nd one for 4 LCD's.

3 out of 5 eggs>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Pros: PLays video pretty good. Pcie-x1

Cons: Takes 2 slots this, and is horrible for gaming.

Other Thoughts: I have Dell Dimension E310 that only has Pci-e x1 so this is the best card I could get. Do not buy this card unless you have to. Does not fit in my case

4 out of 5 eggslook inside your dcNNNN SFF before you choose

Pros: what chasshoo said - only game in town for some PCIe x1 applications and, given that, reasonably priced and reasonably fast.

Cons: Not all HP dc series small form factor boxes will accommodate a double-wide low profile PCIe x1 card. I needed to go with the PCI equivalent (N82E16814161074) in my dc5100 SFF - which was fine for me. I don't need blazing performance, just lotsa pixels.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed!

Pros: This is it! This is the only readily available PCIe x1 SFF (small form factor) video card that is DirectX 9.0c and OpenGL compatible (the box says it is Vista certified).

Cons: None for my application -- an HP/Compaq SFF desktop (dc series) with no PCie x16.

Other Thoughts: My power supply is only 240W -- no problems so far. I did have to disable the onboard video card in BIOS (IRQ 10 => disabled). I d/l latest driver zip file from (only slightly newer version than CD). I also d/l latest Hydravision (2003?) utility from the ATI website (it appears to be almost identical the the version on the included CD).

Order of installation:
1. Verify Microsoft .NET 1.1 Framework in Add/Remove Programs.
2. D/L and unzip all drivers.
3. Shutdown, unplug, and install the card.
3. Reboot, access BIOS and disable onboard video card.
4. Connect the monitor to primary DVI port using DVI to VGA adapter (primary is on the left as viewed from the rear).
5. Continue to boot (if no display, shutdown and restart).
6. Cancel "Found New Hardware" stuff.
7. Run Setup.exe from extracted zip file.
8. Install Hydravision (if desired).


We are not wild gamers -- our goal was to get Shrek the Third running. It sure looks great!
