This video card is great for HTPC duty and in home steam streaming. Works with steam OS too... Silent but a bit hot to the touch...

A great card with all the connections required for any of todays monitors. So easy to install and setup. Have now used a couple of these to fix PC's where the on board ones failed. So reliable I now keep one as a spare in my kit.

Simple card for a simpler time

Honestly I just needed this cause I bought a Ryzen for to run some gaming servers and totally forgot that it didn't have an onboard GPU.
So basically this is perfect if you need some graphics capability. It's not going to win any races but it was designed to sit on the sidelines anyway

Waste of money. It's now sitting in it's box in the cupboard. Despite the whizzbangery of the description on the box telling me it's got all these great ways of making my PC better...it sucked. Turns out my intel OBG were better. And the 7 day return policy means I got to keep it.
