What's great about it: Has its own fan, good price
What's not so great: Make sure system software is pretty current
Overall a good product, very easy to install into computer. problem was I had a hard drive that was about seven years old with windows xp and software was too old to use and had a hard time finding software available to upgrade to use the product. So I never got to use product to it's potential.
What's great about it: Easy To Install & Runs Great
What's not so great: Nothing
Just purchased and installed this today. I was using the stock graphics card on a Gateway Desktop (200mb). Upgraded to this 2Gig card and its an amazing difference!
-I also have a SLIM desktop which limits a lot of the choice of cards out there. This card comes with adapters for SLIM desktops! PRO
-Runs Diablo 3 Max settings -Runs World of Warcraft Max settings -Runs Runescape Max settings -Runs GTA4 Max settings (though max on gta4 comes close to the limit). (these are just a few games I play and have tested it with.)
Your Computer will have an effect on your cards performance as well. I have a 6Gig RAM / 1TB hardrive. (nothing that special) and the card still runs great!
I recommend this for the price and preformance to anyone!
What's great about it: multiple output options, video display, performance
What's not so great: fan is a little loud
I purchased this graphics card for an older computer so my daughter could play her downloaded games. Not only was it easy to install but it contained all the software required to run her high definition games. Needless to say leaping from a 256mb card to hdmi card along with a 2TB hard drive will keep her gaming for a while.
What's not so great: Noisy when starting and stopping
Considering I've had my custom for six years now my options to upgrade my video card with were limited when my BFG 8800 GT started giving out right in the middle of online school. Because of my outdated specs my board didn't support PCIe 3.0 This card was nice because unlike my 8800 GT it doesn't require external power. The fan is noisy when the computer boots up or goes to sleep/shuts down however.
What's not so great: The card is so feature rich, I know I won't be able to take advantage of all the features.
Because games are becoming for graphics intense, I was forced to upgrade my graphics card. I selected the Galaxy - GeForce GT 610 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Graphics Card, because it is supported by the largest number of video games and publishers. Additionally, it appears to have the additional capabilities for the coming lot of games to be released in the near and mid-time future.
What's not so great: The price, I needed it, on line it was $20.00 cheaper.
When my graphic card went out I didn't know what to do. I checked on line for what it would cost me to replace. Saw a video on do-it-yourself. Seen simple enough. My computer is 8yrs + old and I an 61yrs old. So I said either try and do this or take it in. I made sure it was the right size, very important! Gamers use much bigger graphic cards. Found one that fit came home installed it and it worked. Very please with it. Works well. Thank you You-tube.
What's not so great: Noisy. And I was unable to upload my receipt
I needed to replace an integrated video card in an HP Pavillion a6000n desktop and still have a VGA output connector to go with the HP monitor. This video card fit the bill and it would have upgraded my system. The price was right as well. After changing the video input under BIOS prior to installing the card, I had no problems physically instralling the video card and running the drivers off the enclosed CD. It was super easy, even for a newbie like myself. The new video card has been in the computer for 4 days now and everything is running fine. I do email, some You Tube and other basic photo/video stuff on this computer, and the video card works fine.
A couple of downsides: The video card HAS INCREASED THE NOISE COMING OFF THE COMPUTER. It is not horrible as reported by other reviewers, but it is noticeable enough where I could see some getting annoyed by the increase noise level. But for the money and having a VGA output, I am willing to suck it up for now as long as the noise level doesn't get worse. Secondly, I had trouble uploading the receipt to register the video card with the Galaxy website. This unfortunately is related to my lack of computer skills, but I wish Galaxy had made it easier for people like myself.
Overall, I would have given the video card a 5 star rating except for the increased noise level. If you can tolerate a little more noise, it is definitely a recommended video card in my book.
What's great about it: Great color graphics and has multiple outputs including sound.
What's not so great: Once installed I can only use my TV for sound.
I really like this product. It allows me to use my HDTV to watch full size movies from my 65" TV and still use my monitor when the tv is off. I can also use the TV for a monitor if I chose. The graphics and clarity are both awesome. However, once installed it seems I can only use my tv for sound so when I use my PC with the monitor only I have no sound from my built-in sound card. I could find no way to change this.
I would recommend this to a friend!
Build or modify your own PC:Yes
Primary reason for building/modifying PC:Multimedia (music, movies, photos)
What's great about it: Nicely built to be installed in a SFF case
What's not so great: Nothing, excellent bit of hardware.
I am in the process of building a Small form factor PC to be used as a hackintosh (MacOS on non-mac hardware). This is mainly being built as an experiment and my goal was to see how hard the process was. After digging into the various compatible Video cards I found exactly one that was not only small enough to fit in the chassis I am using, but came with all the parts needed to replace the backplane.
