I then tried two EVGA Passive (fanless) 210's. Both failed within 45 minutes.
I've been running HD video through this 5450 for over 24 hours straight now with no problems at all. I think I've finally got a winner. And if I don't, I'll update it here.
Everything in the system was tested working.
However, after using this card for a few hours it light brightly with a spark and burnt itself out.
I was dissapointed but i still had faith that ASUS would RMA it. However i was sorely mistaken. ASUS refused to accept the card since they claim it could not be the problem in the system.
I was shocked since one would believe that something bursting in flames would be a sure sign that it was deffective.
Asus claimed that the PSU must have been the problem and still refuse to take it back.
N.B. I have confirmed that everything else in the system works and upon purchasing a Gigabyte video card the system is working fine.
SHAME ON ASUS!
Installed in the low profile Acer desktop. Don't get the other card with the fan since it makes a fair amount of noise. The heatsink in the product picture is a correct representation. Will run two monitors: 1 hdmi, 1 dvi
Place the card in the available slot and fire up the machine. Windows 7 64 bit got the driver and installed all without problems.....
The problem is with the application come with the CD, it forces you to load it as a startup item and it takes resources to load this every time you boot your windows, it slows down your system.
The other thing I really don't like is it somehow disables my analog audio, if you have sound play through your speaker, it will not work, and it really turns your PC into a silent machine ( you can Google web for this, you will find I am not the only one complaints about this).
All in all, this is a "my way or the highway" mentality from a software implementation point of view, users do not have their say, big brother will figure out all for you, whether this is a good or bad approach, it is really debatable.
Giving the card works, but my PC is silenced, I will give it a three stars.
Follow up ***
I finally make my audio working, basically, you need to re-install your audio codec, I suspected this as I started the system with no sound, but the trick here is the video card install the AMD catalyst application and HDMI driver for you, you need to go to the controll panel to disable this first. After the second install of the driver from Realtek (manufacturer of the codec chip), the sound appears to be working.
