Pros: Low power draw, and compact size compared to other cards I saw. I have a 380 watt PSU with a Micro-ATX board and case, it fit right in. Noticeable improvement over the HD 4600 on board graphics. Very much so for video games, and certain multi-media applications. Little hassle getting it up and running on Win7 and Fedora Linux. It also seems to run pretty cool, haven't noticed the fan maxing out or any loud noise from it in general.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I thought I'd be content with the on board graphics, but if you do anything that benefits from the parallel processing, or just want to play with CUDA programming, worth the price for the upgrade.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Absolutely love the case, very inexpensive, yet looks very good, and doesn't resort to excessive flash to try and cover it's price point.
I have a DVD Burner, two HDDs and an SSD, along with USB, Serial and Parallel Port back panel headers, and no GFX card, wiring gets a pretty tight, especially around the main mobo plug, but some patience and it can be dealt with. Be sure to size up a GFX card, as it'll would only add to the congestion in that area.
Cons: You might want to file some burrs on the inside of the case, for that price, they don't finish the edges.
I found one of the front panel clips extended into the lower HDD bay, making it so the screw holes would not line up.
Other Thoughts: It's not perfect, but for the price, I can easily live with some fine tuning of my own, to get it there.READ FULL REVIEW
