Great quality video at a bargain price
For $50 you get a great card for a HTPC system. Mine worked flawlessly right off the bat. Cards have come down in price incredibly. Comes with the usual DVI-to-VGA adapter, as well as the component and composite adapters. Great buy.

Silent(No fan at all)
HDMI output if you can get your hands on an adapter for it
No included hdmi adapter
Not for gaming
Picked this up as a spare PCIe vid card for my test rig. Can't beat the price, and the fact it includes a DVI & a Standard VGA is a bonus for me as I don't have to search for a VGA adapter when hooking it up to a CRT.

Obviously won't be playing any 3D games with it, but that's not what it was purchased for.

- Excellent for HTPC
- Quiet passive cooling
- ATI's UVD better than Purevideo HD in hardware decoding Hi Def movies
IMHO, XP drivers are more mature than Vista drivers
I used to have an Nvidia 8500 GT driving my HTPC to play Hi Def HD-DVD movies. With the 3450, ATI's UVD does a better job in hardware decoding than Nvidia's Purevideo HD. With the 8500 GT, I needed an Intel E6550 to play Hi-Def movies smoothly. With the 3450, I can use my old Opteron 170 that was gathering dust in my old computer parts bin. I did, however, have a better experience with XP than Vista. With Vista, I would just get an error from Power DVD that the video card isn't supported. I have no problems using it in XP though. not sure if the XP drivers are just more mature than the Vista drivers or Power DVD just has problems with Vista (although I didn't have problems in Vista with the 8500 GT). Anyway, highly recommended for a Hi Def HTPC.

Works great with Vista
It didn't work with my Realtek audio driver on Windows Xp but works on Vista
When I first installed it with Windows Xp, it crashed my computer a few times. I eventually found out that it wasn't working with my audio driver on Xp. I tried it out on Vista and as far as I know it works great.
