Pros: Quiet, looks cool when installed on a window case. Keeps processor pretty cool. Under 20 bucks.
Cons: Size, watch out some boards, this gets pretty close to blocking the ram slots. depending on case, if your power supply is at the bottom then this gets really close to the top where you may have to remove the board to install.
Other Thoughts: Originally bought this for overclocking an Atholon II 260 on a MSI 760gmp23fx board, but have since upgraded to an FX 4300. I've not tried Overclocking this chip but at stock it idlels around 38-40c and maxes out at around 45c which is around 10 degrees cooler than the stock fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: gets picture
Cons: fan noise kinda loud and memory not as advertized
Other Thoughts: Bought this expecting a boost in performance because it was advertised as having 512 DDR3 ram running at 1333mhz. In fact, my computer reads 512 DDR2 running at only 400mhz. This is actually a major performance dropper and a total waste of money. I think they should've been a little more careful with the specs on this one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: works fairly good for the price.
Cons: Kinda slow for gaming.
Other Thoughts: bought this for my hp slimline which only has only pci x1 slots. For the average user it works fine, great enhancement over onboard video when using 3d images. Most games work fine but at medium settings. Found most curent games to run slow at high settings and some games you wont detect the ion chipset so you neet to set those manualy. Overall this card is fine if you only stuck with a pci x1 slot.READ FULL REVIEW
