Experience: 1 Years
Really quiet.
Plays everything that I throw at it.
Small profile.
Better GPUs now for cheaper.
Does exactly what I thought it would in my HTPC. Plays up to 1080p. I use it to stream videos at decent resolutions flawlessly.

Experience: 3 Months

Pretty good deal, fairly powerful card. Keeps cool. I'm currently getting 6.7 on both Aero and 3D desktop through WEI on Win7. For medium-intense gaming, HD video, video editing, photo editing and flash-based online gaming, works perfectly fine. It's a good buy.
The original drivers and driverpacks up until 270.xx would make this video card crash (no BSoDs though, just Aero would conk out) and recover when watching HD Youtube stuff. Not the end of the world, but pretty annoying, though.
The latest driverpack from NVidia (285.62 as of this writing) has resolved pretty much all of the problems. Been running those drivers for a little over a week, and it's been trouble-free ever since.

It's a good card, well worth the price (well it was a steal when it was 34.99 with the MIR -- still good deal right now)

Experience: 35 Days

Best bang for the buck in budget class video cards.
would have loved dual dvi.
You can get this card from anywhere from 20 to 35$ after MIR making it definitely the best bang for the buck video card in a budget PC. ANyone getting integrated graphics should spend the few extra $$$ for this!

Experience: 60 Days

great cheap card
Very honest performances for the price when it's on sale. I did get it for 35$ on promo which was incredible but I could have paid much more for it.

Experience: 90 Days
Good price for its function.
Hard to say for the price. not expect too much.
Good price useful video card, The motherboard I got doesn't have monitor support so have get one for the assembly, so pick it up for temper use, do it work and make time for me to serch and wait for a good one for CAD.

Experience: 2 Weeks

It's better than onboard video
It's buggy with Ubuntu 11.04 and kernel 2.6.38-10
This card is OK but it manages to crash the X11 window compositor daily. It Ubuntu 11.04 running unity this crash occurred upto 3 times a day. Running Xubuntu with XFCE desktop environment I'm experiencing 1 crash every two days.

I haven't tried it in windows but and so I can't speak to that operating system's stability with this hardware.

Overall I wouldn't by this card again. I wanted slightly better than onboard video capabilities with HD video decoding but I didn't expect the system instability

-This review is based on using the Nouveau drivers (FOSS) and the Proprietary Nvidia drivers for X86_64 Linux.

-Decent enough card, especially for older games.
-Price ($20 on sale! Crazy!)
-Not too loud. Not like my last card.
-Lifetime Warranty
-No rear exhaust.
Card seems to be working well so far. For the price, I can't complain! Plays tons of older games just fine. Also plays newer games on low or medium with exceptional framerates. (And that's what matters)

Overall very happy. It's a perfect backup card for when your main one burns out. Also great for gamers on a tight budget.

Experience: 1 Weeks
Price, performance, quiet hsf, 350w requirement
Bsod, artifacts, no ram sink, mir
This is a really good bang for the buck card if you are looking for a cheap htpc/lite gaming card. For htpc situation this card is perfect as the hsf whispers at auto fan speed. For gaming, I was able to do extreme settings for starcraft 2 i 1440x900 with 30 fps with e6500i3.7ghz 4gb ram, which is amazing for a budget card like this! But after an hour of playing I will start to get artifacts and sometimes bsod like others have mentioned. It is not entirely unfixable, the card is just not properly cooled and there is no ram sinks to cool the rams which often is the cause of artifact. By cranking the fan speed to max helps getting rid of the artifact and the noise is bare able while gaming. I am sure adding a aftermarket cooler would solve bosd problem on my card and yield some more performance by ocing it. For me spending another 30 dollars on a 30 dollars card is just silly, your better off with those bfg gts 250 they had for sale couple of weeks ago.

None that I can think of. O wait came with COD
Crashs randomly, PSU specs may be higher then 300watts
I bought this card hoping it would last me at least a year before it died out. With in 2 weeks it started to blue screen and randomly crash. I purchased it in April. Right now I have it RMA with XFX, and waiting for them to test the sucker before sending me a new one. I know my psu is acquit and my system meets it. I guess there a reason why they're on sale atm. Buyer defiantly beware with these hunks of junk.

Price. Looks. Packaging.
Thickness of Metal. Wide.
This card is great for the price. Perfect for an average user who needs to take the load off CPU or who needs expansion ports for video output. Perfect for HTPC/Desktop, but not for dedicated HTPC. Double wide is OK, but can be trouble.
Packaging is fantastic. Building quality is good, but metal a bit thin for me.
