SPARKLE PRODUCTIVITY DMS Series GeForce 210 700035 1GB 64-Bit PCI Express x16 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Supports 2 monitors. One monitor at 2560 x 1440 using a display port cable, other at 1920 x 1080 using a regular DVI cable. I tried connecting a third monitor using the remaining DVI output connector, and though Windows recognized the third monitor, the NVIDIA software reported that the GPU only supports two monitors.

Cons: Comes with half-height bracket installed. But it was easy to replace it with included full-height bracket.

Other Thoughts: Works in PCI-E 1.0 socket. Using Windows 7, I did not need or install anything on the included CD. But perhaps whatever I needed was already installed by a previous video card.

JATON GeForce GT 630 DirectX 11 Video-PX658-DLP-EX 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: none

Cons: The card only supports 1920 x 1080 with a dual-link DVI cable, not 2560 x 1600.

Box says PCI-E 2.0, not 1.0

I was unable to run 3 monitors. The included NVIDIA software reported that the GPU only supports 2 monitors. But other reviewers claim it supports 3.

Other Thoughts: Tech support requires "registration". Registration requires replying to a confirmation email. But I never received the confirmation email.

HIS H545H1GD1 Radeon HD 5450 Silence 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express x1 Low Profile Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fan-less and only needs a PCI Express x1 slot.

Cons: Annoying installation.

Other Thoughts: It does work as a second video card to drive additional monitors, at least it worked with my ATI Radeon HD 5400 card. However, it's slower than the video card in the PCI Express x16 slot, which is sad, but understandable. The display attached to this card lags way behind when scrolling documents.

It's not plug and play, you MUST run the installer on the included CD. And the installation is ridiculously slow, probably because of all the advertising you're forced to watch. Don't panic when the screen goes COMPLETELY BLACK, just wait it out.

The "advanced installation" settings include check boxes to exclude games and other garbage, but this is silly, YOU CAN'T UN-SELECT THEM! Despite that, no garbage was actually installed into Windows 7. Nothing in the start menu or on the desktop. So after installation, everything's good.
