1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fanless, small, low profile option.

Cons: Terrible performance, even with the latest drivers from HIS.

100% gpu load when simply dragging a window around on-screen with Win7 Aero enabled. Or resizing the window.

Disabling Aero made it even slower/laggier.

Other Thoughts: I was able to successfully RMA it in a simple padded envelope!

I replaced it with the same GPU on a PCI-e x16 card on the same system and that works perfectly.

This card would probably be nice in Windows XP or the like, but it just can't handle Win7.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: Cheap?

Cons: Incredibly Slow

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a second card to power a second monitor to get better performance in Photoshop. The screen connected to this card was horrendously slow. I switched out of Windows 7 Aero theme and performance improved ever so slightly. It was a painful chore to even play freecell on that screen.

5 out of 5 eggsWow I'm Impressed

Pros: Impressive little card for PCI. I was skeptical if I could get what I was looking for for mid range gaming for and old Optiplex 170L with only PCI slots, but this by far blew away(and then some) my PNY Verto GeForce 256MB DDR PCI Card. Runs all of the stuff I normally played with the old card a lot better. Though I couldnt squeeze any more performance out of my old computer, this proved that wrong by a lot. ^_^

Cons: Required a replacement 400W minimum PSU. I personally recommend the 430W Thermaltake TR-2 as I am also impressed with the unit.

No other faults so far.

Other Thoughts: System: Dell Optiplex 170L
Intel Pentium 4 3.2Ghz Single Core Processor w/HT
HIS Radeon HD 5450 Silence 512MB DDR3 PCI
2GB G.Skill DDR400 SDRAM
D-Link DWA-552 PCI Xtreme Desktop Adapter
Thermaltake TR-2 430W PSU

I would certainly recommend this graphics card if you only have PCI slots.

4 out of 5 eggsNice card

Pros: Runs Doom 3 (despite being outdated) at a nice framerate (smoother than my ATI Radeon 9200 AGP), however in some spots it's still slow but not too slow (10-15 FPS).
PCI, great for computers w/o AGP/PCIe ports or older computers.
No noise despite the fact that no graphics card I ever had made any kind of noise.
Low power usage due to weaker card.
Lots of memory (for me at least).

Cons: As of this writing, open source drivers are still only partially complete (this means you must rely on broken fglrx).
PCI is slow but if you are going to do simple OpenGL stuff or do anything not super intensive (Quake 3 and such), you will be fine.

Other Thoughts: I needed a newer OpenGL card (hardware supports up to OpenGL 3.2) mostly so that is why I bought this. The reason I bought the PCI version is that my system only has a PCI slot (an Intel Atom D510MO). Currently on Linux the only real way to use this card is to use the proprietary fglrx drivers available in Debian experimental, the open source radeon driver is only partially supported and still has a while to go.

+ No noise is a plus, my system already makes zero noise.
+ If you have AGP or PCIe, use those instead of this card if you want performance.
+ If you use Linux (like I do), I suggest you either wait until the open source drivers get far enough or just use the fglrx (with it's limitations). You can always buy the card and hold onto it so if it ever goes poof you have it.
