This is a great video card. I received it at 5pm, had it installed, software loaded and dialed in by 7pm. I have an older (2006) Sony VAIO desk top that I have started upgrading. It is currently running Windows XP and the card easily excedes the capability of XP. My primary intent for the card was the capability to run dual digital moniters and it is doing a great job. I have a SyncMaster P2770FH on HDMI and a SyncMaster 204B on DVI. Using the Extended Desktop mode with different settings and resolutions on each moniter, and both are looking good. Very smooth transitions between monitors. The windows automatically convert to the new screen as you drag them over. What a great way to work, browse or relax. I have Windows 7 on order and expect more great performance when I get that loaded and running. Will post an update when completed, but may take a little time because SONY no longer supports this OMG 5 year old dinosaur. Fortunately the component manufacturers do provide support. Will have to keep that in mind the next time I buy a new system.
06/01/11 = I have completed the 64 bit Windows 7 conversion and this card is performing beyond expectations. I am running both moniters at MAX resolution without a hint of a problem. I added a 2T hard drive, dual tuner TV receiver and 7.1 sound card, and the power consumption and heat disipation are well within my systems' original capability. If you want a plug-in Windows 7 compatible "silent" (no fan required) video card for above average (great TV and movies, but not extensive 3D applications) performance, buy this card before they are all gone at this great price.
01/03/13 = I scrapped the Sony VAIO and built a new AMD FX system and installed xfire video cards, so I gave this video card to my stepdad for his new AMD FX system. It is still performing flawlessly with dual Samsung Hi-Res Digital monitors. If they are still available, I can't imagine a better value for most applications. Intense graphics applications will cost extra (some are a lot extra), but for most MS Office applications, the usual web applications and even cable TV, this card is a great value.
