Great card

EVGA GeForce GT 610 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card 01G-P3-2616-KR
EVGA GeForce GT 610 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card 01G-P3-2616-KR

Pros: Price vs. specs. HD video is smooth

Cons: None so far but I'm not a gamer or video intensive user

Overall Review: I needed a card with two DVI outputs to go to my monitors without adapters. Since Displayport vs. HDMI vs. who knows what will not be settled in the near future this card postponed the issue.

Pros: Fans made the SMART temperatures several degrees cooler then without it

Cons: Some say fans are loud. Since I was expecting to hear the fans when I got them installed I thought, "that's not so bad". Yes you can hear the fans but I can live with it.

Overall Review: Excellent! Driving the SMART temperatures down was exactly what I needed and that is what this product does.

12 year old is enjoying it!

Pros: Doubled my ~2013 vintage system from 8GB to 16GB of RAM and it all plays well together (I made sure specs were the same).

Cons: None

Overall Review: Recommended

Pros: Linux has native support in most distros although I had to use the "testing" repository for the firmware in Debian 10 Buster. I expect shortly firmware will be in the stable repository. Windows works great too. My 12 year old really likes it.

Cons: None

Overall Review: It really woke up an old twin Xeon HP-z800-Workstation with 24GB of RAM into a gaming PC for my 12 year old. I repurposed the original Nvidia Quadro card elsewhere.
