Used to to upgrade my HTPC integrated video card.
Works good on a 250w PSU.
Able to output to full 1920x1080 with audio over HDMI to a HDTV.
Runs a bit hot since its passively cooled. 62C idle and 74C under load.
You can downclock the core speed a bit to drop the temp by a few C.
Didnt come with second low profile bracket for VGA connector or could have come with a DVI to VGA adapter instead.
Not sure what another user was saying about cheap HDMI cables not being able to be plugged in all the way, tested 6 different cheap cables and all of them plugged in fine. Hopefully the $20 rebate goes through.
Some reason when I plugged this card in the htpc now takes 1 minute to reach the post screen. Might be just the really outdated motherboard causing it though.
Make sure you grab the latest drivers from AMD's site and dont bother with the CD.
