This card uses a max of 20 watts of power and fits into a PCIe x1 slot. It gets a 4.5 for desktop graphics and 3.7 for 3d video games in the Windows Experience Index. It's got an extremely customizable NVIDIA control panel that lets you tune and tweak everything and ZOTAC Firestorm which lets you overclock with ease. It's CUDA-enabled which could be an upside for some people. (I use Flam4CUDA to render fractals myself--it's 9 times faster.)
I can't play anything insanely amazing on it, but I can get 30 fps in most games with good settings. (Killing Floor, wow, Dungeon Defenders, Borderlands, Bloodline Champions, all on high) Something worthy of note is that this can't emulate good-looking gamecube/PS2/xbox games but it does very well with gba/DS/ps1/lower-end ps2-era games.
If you want VGA out, you need another port higher than the card itself. (This means that if your desktop is standing up, the PCIe x1 or equivalent port needs to be at least one down from the top and the slot above it needs to be free.) Beyond that, I couldn't get it to work. You have to seat the vga port onto the card itself. For whatever reason, my pc just wouldn't use the display when it was plugged into that vga port. So, I purchased a DVI->VGA adapter for 2$ and things have worked fine since. ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002R0DZXU ) I do still have troubles with my integrated graphics not being disabled during bootup, which is weird, but once booted the monitor works fine with the DVI port.
In conclusion this is a really good card if you don't have much wattage to work with, need a PCIe x1 card, and would like to play some video games. However, if you have an x16 slot you'd be better off getting one of those cards. This is a higher priced, worse product *because* it's PCIe x1. x16 is simply a better deal--if you have the port.
One star rating, only because i have not gotten this product. I will be going up on the rating if it works out.
Update! 2-12-2014: Got it in the mail, and put it in the PCIE 8x slot, and it works great!
