Bought this for a dual display office machine. Works great BUT you need to strap on a fan if you do anything 3D whatsoever. Otherwise you will watch the temps climb for a very long time. A fan will cost you $5.
Picked up one of these to replace my noisy GeForce 8600GT in my HTPC and it does it job very well -- to make my HTPC silent. I don't play games on HTPC and this card is more than enough for what I need -- video playback. For this price I don't have any complain.
