Pros: Low profile bracket included
overall compact size (not too long)
Decent gaming performance
Works fine with my 220-watt power supply
Cons: Wasn't free
Other Thoughts: I was searching for an entry level gaming card that would work with the 220-watt PS of my new Acer Aspire AXC-115-UR20 desktop. It has an E-2 6110 quad core processor at 1.5 GHz that only draws 15 watts. In addition to requiring a low profile card that only takes up one slot width, it had to be short enough to avoid hitting the USB 3 connector on the motherboard. This Asus card fulfills all those requirements.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small size leaves room to work in small cases, PCI express X16 slot. Board layout. Celeron 1037U is peppy. Handles HD streaming with ease. Benches faster than my Athlon 64 X2 2.8 GHz CPU. If you don't game, onboard video adequate.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: Put a semi-fast GeForce GTS-450 graphics card in the slot and 8 GB of PC3 1066 RAM and for the older games I still enjoy, this board does just fine. Best value I've found. Setup was easy with Windows 7 64-bitREAD FULL REVIEW
Cons: The external connector is NOT an eSATA connector. It is a female SATA connector, the same as is on the motherboard. An eSATA cable will not fit this connector. It is useless for external drives.
Other Thoughts: I gave one egg only because I could not give it ZERO.READ FULL REVIEW
