Pros: Installed this on my Dell OptiPlex 780 Small Form Factor with a 235w Power Supply and runs AoE3, Skyrim, War Thunder, BF3 all on High/Ultra Settings getting about 30 to 50 FPS!
Also made web browsing faster!
Cons: This card is a little big for the Small Form Factor case which I got... You have to do some modifications to make this work.
First, you have to take the hard drive holder which is infront of the CPU cooler out, dont worry about the CPU heatsink it will be ok.. there are just 2 screws holding the hard drive holder take that out in order for this card to fit in.
Second you have to be creative for your harddrive... As for me I have a SSD so it was easy for me to use the rear vents to install a SSD bracket to hold the SSD Drive.
The CPU Holder has a bottom fan which you can take out, in your BIOS just disable alerts as you will get an error about harddrive fan no longer working.
Temps go all the way up tp 78 which is hot for my taste... but still works :) Im sure with a different case it would resolve this issue

Pros: Let's see... it's metal and strong.. not really much pros..
Cons: I have a Kingston Hyper X SSD 120 GB and this does not line up to the holes.
Also 4 of the screws that come with it does not fit in any holes in the bracket! LOL good for spare parts I guess
