Good Deal, going to buy a another 1 of these 09/06/2011
Much better than the GeForce 8400GS I had with 256MB of DDR2. Passive heatsink so no fans to die and burn the GPU up. Got 30fps in graphically intense areas of WoW and 60fps elsewhere such as in Dalaran. No problems with driver install for Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. Much slimmer than my prior cards passive heatsink that was almost touching the neighboring card in the PCI slot. This card is nice and slim. DDR3 instead of DDR2 dedicated for GPU is better. And I have never gone wrong with an ASUS product. Owned many motherboards with no problems and this is my first video card of their brand. I also made the jump back to AMD ATI from being a Nvidia customer since the GeForce 2 series, and owning the GF4, GF5200, 5500, 6200, 7300, 7600, and lastly the 8400GS. Impressed with the performance at just $35 and this card benchmarks 2.5x better than my 8400GS according to passmark gpu score which I looked at prior to buying.
Although I have a 80mm fan mounted in my tower to blow air across my cards, more importantly passive heatsink video card from the Geforce 8400GS which also has a passive large heatsink. When it comes to gaming, I wouldnt rely on regular thermal dynamics to lift the heat away. I like to make sure everything runs cool and so even though its got a passive heatsink, I'd make sure you have adequate airflow across the card to avoid an overheated GPU.
