Cons: The heatsink is HUGE so 1 star off for that. It will take close to 2 slots up so make sure you have the room for this card. It will get hot without proper ventilation. I had 1 slot in my case and this card butted right up to the case side and caused excessive heat. What I had to do was cut a hole in the case for the video card fan and then use a fan cover over it(looks factory done). So now instead of 56C for idle its down to 29C and under moderate usage it goes to 36C.
For the money and included rebate (at my purchase time)its well worth it. The performance to price ratio is great and you will not go wrong using it in a htpc/media pc or just an upgrade to onboard video. Also go over to NVIDIA's website and download the latest drivers and don't use the ones on the cd. The other programs on the cd can be used but its always good to check Asus website from time to time to see if there are any newer versions.
I bought this card to upgrade an older HP tower. It had a Asus motherboard (common for HP)with a AMD Athlon X2 CPU and nForce3 NVIDIA chip set using on board graphics. The pci-E slot was first generation and the power supply a meek 300 watt. I installed this card, plenty of room and the heat-sink was sturdy and looks easy to clean in the future. I loaded Win 7 x64 without a hitch, and the new NVIDIA drivers as well. The card supports Direct X 11 and it worked in the 64 bit windows desktop smooth as silk. Playback of MP4 HD videos was flawless, as well as blu-ray. Backwards compatibility with the older pci-E 1.0 is perfect. The owner is not a gamer, but does watch a lot of HD content video, and just wanted a smooth video experience and that is just what this card delivered. The power supply is quite adequate as the card draws a max of 50 watts. I found no significant increase in heat load from the PC using this card vs the on-board graphics. I worked with the DVI-D output, and did test the HDMI (worked perfect) but I did not test or use the VGA analog output. The monitor I used was a 1080p Samsung TV monitor. It has been a month of heavy use so far, and not a single problem. If not for gaming, then this is the card for you.
It's only draw back that keeps it from being a 5 star is the width and a very slight fan noise. The heat sink extends beyond the width of the mounting frame significantly. If your PCI-E slot is on the outside edge of your motherboard this is probably not a problem; such is the case for my other computer. But in this case it is not and the heat sink sits over my only other slot making it unusable. Fortunately I have no need for that slot.
I am not a gamer and would not presume that this unit would do as well as the top end gaming cards but some review put it as a value card for gaming. For my purpose of recording and playing back sports it is great. (I have and will only use this unit in 2D.)
