Works great on my Dell Optiplex 745 Tower. It came with the Low Profile slot brackets, which come in handy on the Dell Desktop models. My Dell PCI-E slots were rated for PCI-E 2.0 x 16, but it works great. Great Price after rebate. I purchased this card for a two monitor setup, it can probably handle 3 monitors, but I have not tried.


The Catalyst software causes a Memory Dump/BSOD, but Win7 was able to install it's own graphics drivers. I read somewhere installing an older version of the driver works fine. I don't get audio thru the HDMI interface connected to an HDTV. I believe there is an audio driver than I'm missing since I can't install from the CD.

Other Thoughts:

I would have given it 5 eggs, but I took one away for the BSOD. Other than that you can beat the price after rebate. I was not looking for a gaming card, especially with my system, but my WEI went from 3.5/3.5 to 4.5/6.1.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
