Pros: Cool, quiet, decent power, great for my work machine (HP EliteDesk 800 G1 SFF) and easy to install. The fan is great, don't even hear it but on the other hand there is a little background office noise in the room. Now for the good part.
Banchmark, Bioshock Infinite at *VeryHigh* settings, 1680x1050 16:10 format: Average fps 31.56 (minimum 11.73).
For comparison my Radeon R7 250 also a 1GB GDDR5: Average fps 35.24 (min 16.70). So a little slower than my home card but both over 30 fps.
In 3D Mark - Fire Strike / Sky Diver / Cloud Gate / Ice Storm:
Intel HD Graphics 4600 - 738, 3535, 7290, 62903
GeForce GT730 (this card) - 1516, 5379, 10294, 87001
Radeon R7 250 1GB GDDR5 - 1924, 6325, 8583, 91659
Overall a good budget card.
Cons: Fps can drop in high-demand scenarios. But on average over 30 fps in Bioshock Infinite tests.
Other Thoughts: Can't believe how cool Bioshock Infinite is and that this budget card can run it with High effects. Get this card and game if you like artsy stuff. Good story.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: [Follow up to my 9/2009 review] Power supply finally died after five years of heavy use. The last few years it was running 24/7 powering my media center pc in the basement storage room. Not bad imho.
Cons: No cons that I can think of.READ FULL REVIEW
