4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, not fast

Pros: Fanless.
I thought I would try a fanless card to get rid of the leafblower effect.
Good price if you just need to get graphics with no fan.
Internet browser is now laggy. Will soon replace this card.

Cons: It's very laggy but works OK
Won't use new Nvidia drivers, only v 175
Can't monitor temperature at all and seems to overheat quickly.
I ended up installing a small fan on it to keep it from burning up.
Will hardly play the simplest game of Unreal tournament 2004.
Will NOT play BF 2142 or similar. at all.

Other Thoughts: Only gave 4 stars because it does work OK. I replaced a Nvidia 6600 GT (used in another computer) and this is definitely a downgrade in speed and performance.
Will never get another one of these.
Received this in about a week undamaged.
