inexpensive and painless to install/use with Win 7

Pros: No problems installing/using with Windows 7. Running dual monitors, the thing barely gets warm -- no games or fancy stuff, just average use. I was under a tight budget and needed a replacement GPU for a family member's computer, and this fit the bill perfectly.

Cons: The thermal compound is weaksauce, and the pins don't hold the heatsink firmly enough, so it can wobble/rock if bumped or if pressure is applied. Not very good cooling.

Overall Review: Because I was worried about overheating I replaced the compound with a tiny piece of 6.0 W/mK Fujipoly thermal padding, which (because it's soft and putty-like) turned out to be much better at keeping the GPU in thermal contact with the heatsink.

Great Card for the price

Pros: Plug-n-Play. Slim design allows for installation in slim computers and it comes with the short faceplate included. It also comes with a software cd if you need it. I installed this card in a business computer for dual monitor support so I did not require the cd but it is nice to have.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I would not recommend this video card for hardcore gaming. It is nice for basic computer tasks but I do not think it could handle the heavy requirements of today's video games. Great price for an additional video card if all you need is dual monitor support though.
