5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great, even on a 250 watt Power Supply, Dell Dimension 3000, downloaded latest Drivers and plenty of options.

Cons: Which it had a Fan, Acrobat Reader on the WEB is still a little slow.

Other Thoughts: Great fast card to bring older machine back to life.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome PCI Card

Pros: DirectX 11 PCI Card

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I don't know why everyone says you need a 300 or even 250 watt power supply - I installed this in an IBM ThinkCentre S50 with 200 watt power supply and it works no problem. I have played Civilization 5 for hours and ran benchmarks (heaven and 3dmark) without any power issue - and the S50's have a CD-ROM drive AND floppy drive to suck power as well.
This card will boost life into practically any old computer with a PCI slot - a MUST HAVE if you work or play on an older PC.

1 out of 5 eggsGave up after two DOA

Pros: PCI interface
Multiple digital outputs (DVI + HDMI)

Cons: Tried installing in multiple computers, and could never get it to work. Either the computer would refuse to boot due to no video devices, or the device would show as "unable to start" in Device Manager. The replacement had the same issues. Computers ran fine after removal.

4 out of 5 eggsgood to revive old PC

Pros: runs on PCI interface. the best option out there for reviving an old computer that doesn't have pci-e x16 ports. the price is a bit steep, but that's because it costs more in production to make current tech work on old interfaces. passive cooling heat sink eliminates noise but runs a bit warm. nothing incredibly noticeable. can run on 250w psu. plays most games on mid to high settings with 15-20 FPS which isn't incredibly bad. runs perfectly on low settings.

Cons: requires 300w minimum. most older systems that you would need this card for have around 250w.

Other Thoughts: never try to run a card below the minimum wattage requirement. it causes a huge amount of issues. running this card on a 250w psu caused windows to freeze many times on the boot screen and performance is greatly staggered so always go with the suggestions.

4 out of 5 eggsLast Hope For Older Weak Dell Dimension E310

Pros: This card is a savior for a REALLY WEAK Dell Dimension, that origianlly had Windows XP MCE 2005, and had multiiple installation errors, no recovery media. Intel Board that doesn't even qualify for Intel Matrix Storage Application.
I can't believe how cheaply made these computer were manufactured. Dell locked out the one PCE-X1 slot, so what was left was PCI slot. This card filled the bill.

Cons: Limited by PCI as 64-bit interface.

Other Thoughts: Works well as Media Center [Basement-Workout] computer.
This card breathed life into a Dump Run computer into a saver. Added a Clear QAM/Hybrid tv tuner, happy with results.

5 out of 5 eggsIdeal for certain niches

Pros: Fastest PCI card that I know of.
Passive cooling - quiet
Low power (no external connection)
DVI, VGA, HDMI outputs

Cons: This is very much a niche product. Outside these niches it's just an average video card.

Other Thoughts: Some possible uses:

Great for an HTPC. Silent, low power, excellent video playback, HDMI.

Very good dedicated Physx card, especially if you're out of PCIe slots. Now you can have dual SLI cards AND a Physx card in a PCI slot.

These are popular with the BOINC/Folding crowd. You can fill all your PCI slots with CUDA GPUs and have a folding beast relatively cheap.

Breathe new life into an older PC without PCIe slots.

If you want to add a third (or fourth) monitor this is an efficient way to do it.

It only has 512 MB. This is usually a con but if you're using a 32 bit OS and need multiple video cards, this won't take too much of a bite out of the 4 GB memory address limit.

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth HTPC & Workstation...

Pros: Excellent PCI preformer.. Runs much better than the integreated Radon 4250 video it replaced. Runs perfectly with Haupage TV tuner, Media center, live Tv and/or recorded TV, while doin Web and database development(VisualStudio) at the same time... More than good nuf for good video presentation and a workload at the same time...

Cons: None yet...

Other Thoughts: Pretty good for a PCI replacement for integrated vidio that went bad (and no exprsess slots left). Smokes the old intgrated video subsystem. Installation was easy on Win 7, Win 7 will find a driver, but loading the Nvidia Gx430 is even better... and the HD Audio which didnt work well b4 now works perfectly... More than Good nuff - Nice!
Runs dual monitors(one on DVI, one on VGA(DB15) perfectly too.

4 out of 5 eggsDepending on your expectations, satisfaction may vary.

Pros: Best card you can get for the PCI interface. "Best" however only compared to other PCI video cards. Install was painless as usual, drivers downloaded from Nvidia worked great. Can breath (albeit, shallow) new life into circa 2004/5/6 brand name PC's without PCIE/AGP. You can at least run games like Witcher 2, BF3, and DX:HR if you wanted to thanks to it's full fledged DX11 support. Got it to run only using a 210w Dell PSU and it's been stable.

If your focus is HD multimedia, editing and recording, this is great! I also heard it makes a good secondary card for Physx and folding and ofcourse, windows Vista/7 Aero.

Cons: If your focus is gaming: No matter how much power is packed into this card, it's being choked by the PCI bus. This will not perform like it's PCIE equivalent. Paired with a P4, even older games like HL2 seem to slow down to 20-30fps at higher settings where as mid-ranged models from 2004 on PCIE didn't break a sweat. It's not the GT430's fault, it's the PCI bus! Yes, I know that running games from 2011 on a 3.2ghz P4 is a stretch but, older games that have no problem on single cores just aren't very smooth.

Other Thoughts: For multimedia: HTPC with no PCIE slots? This card is a very good option as long as you have at minimum a decent dual-core.

For secondary card uses: I give this the seal of approval.

For gaming: I created a benchmark video and posted on YT, search GT430 PCI. I used a Dell b110 considering most people would probably be using something similar if they were stuck with PCI.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for a PCI Card, Good as a Toaster

Pros: Quiet, easily installed, included OC/temp monitoring utility. Runs Windows 7 with just a bit of aero-related lag.

Cons: No fan, runs very hot in most 3D games.

Other Thoughts: The basics: If you want a card for youtube and facebook games with a bit of ME3 or Skyrim on the side, and can't put a PCI-E card in your computer, this can do the trick.
With no fan, it gets just shy of being able to cook my meals for me, but a small desk fan makes it gameable. But it's only just able to run modern games with console-level graphics. Skyrim, for instance, runs on medium settings at ~20-40 fps without oc. The Zotac 430 PCI is, in my opinion, just one or two steps short of being a decent entry level gaming card. It is, I repeat, NOT a gaming GPU. The in-game temperatures and the PCI interface itself doom this card to the status of a general use graphics card that can run some games.

5 out of 5 eggsFolders Rejoice!

Pros: I highly recommend this card for anyone who has an open PCI slot - especially in the older Pentium 4 systems where that's probably the only options there are, and anyone with any system where you're out of PCIe slots or are too near your power supply's wattage limit to risk another PCIe GPU. This card does not have any additional plugs. 100% of the power is drawn from the motherboard's PCI slot (25W, give or take), and because it has such a low power requirement, there's a 99% chance you won't even have to consider upgrading your power supply to run it.

The card only takes up 1 slot, and has no cooling fans to add additional noise to your system. I was a bit skeptical about how well the heatsink would perform, especially when overclocked and right next to an ATI 5870. Was also concerned about how much it might increase the temp of the 5870 with a heat source near it, but i found there's nothing to worry about. The 5870 only increased by 1C.

Cons: None. This card is perfect for Folders using BOINC or F@H who have open slots to fill and offers 3x the performance of the old 9500GT PCI cards.

This is the fastest PCI card avaible. Do not go for the 520 just because the model number is higher. This card is about 1.75x faster than that.

Other Thoughts: My Overclocked Specs:
Core Clock: 839MHz
Shader Clock: 1678MHz
Memory clock: 1980MHz
GPU temp @ 75F ambient: 65C
Credits/day @ DistRtGen: ~87,580

Also, if you're a gamer, this card is perfect for dedicated PhysX

The length of the card is more than short enough that it won't block the air intake on most GPUs.

Please Zotac, please, make a GT 630 PCI card if power draw turns out to be low enough to work with PCI!
