5 out of 5 eggsCheap, effective, DOES work with Linux

Pros: Works with Debian Jessie with Nvidia proprietary drivers. Has hardware H264 decoder.

Cons: DId require hand-crafting X11 config to make work and some monkeying with the driver install to work. H264 decoder is very picky, and will drop incomplete/corrupted frames where software decoders will correct and continue flawlessly. Does not appear to handle 10-bit YUV colorspace, requiring falling back to CPU decoding.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to put in a low-power Intel Atom machine for some video playback. Took a couple hours of configuring and updating VLC and libraries to versions that support VDPAU, but now I get smooth playback of HD content with no tearing or other issues (provided the source file is good, as noted above).

3 out of 5 eggsHeaksinks Wraps Around the Back

Pros: Don't know. I couldn't install it due to the heatsink.

Cons: The heatsink wraps around to the back of the card and sticks out quite a bit. My computer's PCI slot is tight against the bottom of the case, so it won't fit.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you've got room both above AND BELOW the PCI slot to accomodate the heatsink.

4 out of 5 eggsA struggle to install, but worth it. New PSU needed, and had to remove Soundblaster

Pros: Performance: Not much difference in ordinary web surfing or Windows. But lower CPU usage in Netflix (Silverlight) and HTML5 video. 70-80-90% CPU usage is now down to 20-40%. 720p HTML5 (Youtube as well as .mp4 file streams) plays fine now; before it was unplayable.

Flash is still stuttering, but that is due to the problems with Flash protected mode on Firefox. Shutting off protected mode makes it watchable, but not as smooth as HTML5. HD Flash CPU usage also went down, from 90%, down to 50%. Streaming a 720p .mp4 Flash in VLC player lowered it further (40-50%) and smoother to boot.

Cons: Round 1. No signal to the monitor. Tried other PCI slots, cables, outputs, no luck. Restored the old 7600gs and the picture returned. Bad card? Plugged the card into a newer dual-core HP tower and it did work, so the card isn't entirely bad.

The Dell originally came with a Rage XL PCI card, so it's no stranger to PCI video. Power? Disconnected power to everything except the mobo and the SSD drive, and the card still refused to boot. Conclusion: PSU. I bought the StarTech 400w dell replacement PSU (29A on dual 12v rails). Still no signal. I am disgusted.

Round 2. Problem is more than just power. The maker's site and manual said that you can get audio with the right driver, if your monitor has speakers, and you use the straight HDMI or DVI-to-HDMI connectors. There's even an SPDIF connector
for pass-through. That means this card is also a sound card. Soundcards tend to hate each other. My only other PCI card is
a Soundblaster Audigy 2. I pulled the Soundblaster and the monitor finally got a picture.

Other Thoughts: I have an old 1-core P4 2.4ghz Dell Poweredge 400sc, on Win 7, with a Gigabyte 7600gs AGP (a DirectX 9 card). I wanted DirectX 10/11 compatibility, and thus, GPU acceleration for Flash, Silverlight, HTML5, and direct 2d acceleration for Windows and Firefox.

The side of the box said you must have 300W PSU, with at least 16A on the 12v rail minimum. The Dell PSU label said 250W, a max of 16A on the 12v rail. The existing PSU's max just barely meets the min specifiied by the card.

If you want the card to feed audio to the monitor, you have to install the "HD Audio" part of the Nvidia drivers too. I usually do a custom clean install and only pick the graphics part of the driver, ignoring the rest. The card does not conflict with the Dell's onboard sound (which I turned back on in the BIOS); you can switch the audio back and forth in Win Control Panel.

4 out of 5 eggsGood PCI Card

Pros: used for an aging HP comp with no AGP or PCI express slot to upgrade the built in graphics. works very well.

Cons: currently none

Other Thoughts: must disable on-board graphics and select primary graphics PCI slot in the BIOS

4 out of 5 eggsGood Video Card

Pros: Good Video Card for a PCI, Small Form Factor. Was the best thing I could find that would fit in my Intel Atom HTPC. Runs 1080p flawlessly where the on board video chip would stutter playing 720p.

Cons: Device failed after 20 months. Otherwise 5 stars.

1 out of 5 eggsResearch Compatibility

Pros: Seams to be a ok card for the users that got it to work..

Cons: Could not get it to work in the rig I bought it for. I could get it to work in other machines, but had to return it for another brand after talking directly to Zotac directly and they said they are aware of alot of compatibility issues with this model and recommended to return it for another model or brand.

3 out of 5 eggsWill it fit?

Pros: Seams to work as it was designed once the drivers are installed.

Cons: Purchased because it was the better of the 2 options on the site which have HDMI output on a PCI slot and low profile brackets. Wouldn't fit in the computer because the heat sink makes it too tall and wide. I don't understand the point of making this unit low profile if it doesn't fit a low profile system.

Other Thoughts: Minus the size, it appears to be a good option for HDMI on PCI. In a full height machine it would be a good solution.

1 out of 5 eggsoh well - better luck next time?

Pros: It is passively cooled, (the HS is cute) in this day and age of billion watt video cards that's novel? It has barely enough power to play 1080p? oh yeah and you can stuff it in a PCI slot.

Cons: Do not purchase this card unless you are certain it will be compatible with your hardware. And how can you do that you may ask? Well you can't! I tried this in two motherboards: 1st a Intel BOXD945GCLF Intel Atom 230 and an MSI K9A2 Platinum The card exhibits what can only be best described as a memory corruption issue. It acts like the board wants the BIOS to allot hardware memory to the card (which can't happen) then none of the NVidia drivers (nor the Micro$oft WDDM driver) is set to handle this. Then as the OS pages virtual memory the non-protected RAM gets overwritten and the driver crashes. Zotac support is zero help the rep says: load the driver. cool idea Sahib I'll get right on that :P I've observed many other users complaining of this same issue.

So yeah pass this on by guys

Other Thoughts: to bad I tarried and tried to troubleshoot this I would have demanded a refund but I've not once ever done that since I began buying from NewEgg a decade ago currently this is out of stock best to leave it that way ;)

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless for Linux

Pros: Works if you are using Windows.
Tech Support responded quickly.

Cons: I bought this card because I needed something to use in a Mythbuntu install so that I could do HD offloading.

I had a Dell Optiplex GX520 workstation that I started with and that only has PCI slot so I needed this PCI video card. Plugged the card in and started the install and it would get to the part of the installer where it would bring up the video and it would reboot the computer. Take the card out of the computer and it works fine. Thinking something is wrong with the card I drop a Windows XP disk and it installs without and issue. Pull down the latest drives and the box runs all night long without an issue.

Try to install Mythbuntu again and it fails. Download Fedora Core 19 and can't even get to the install screens. Pull the video card out and both install. Put the card in after the install and they start to boot and then reset and go into an endless loop.

The two Linux distros were 64bit and they didn't work and the 32bit Windows XP did. So I pull down the 32bit version of Mythbuntu. Nope still resets.

Pull the card out of the Optiplex GX520 and put in a Optilex 755 workstation. The exact same issue happen with the card in or out no matter the distribution I use.

Also found this post in their forums ( ) in which a Zotac employee writes “There are numerous issues with pre-built computers and ZOTAC's PCI graphics cards”.

Wow that is rotten.

Fine, so I grab an old Asus P4-P800E Deluxe motherboard and a Pent 4 3.2Ghz proc and try to install on that platform. Only 32bit only PCI slots and not OEM equipment. Nope same bad fail every time.

At this point I open trouble ticket (KDK-396-77031 ) and get a response back that states:
“We do not have support for Linux products.“

Wow, that sucks. Considering I was looking at the Zbox devices from Zotac for MythTV, I am glad to know they have no desire for Linux before I bought three of those things.

At this point I have wasted 2 weeks working on this and will have to pay to ship this thing back and pay restocking because of this horrible card.

As computer people, we all have those vendors we swear by and those vendors we swear at, Zotac falls squarely in the later.

Other Thoughts: Avoid like the plague if you care to every use Linux.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper deal for older PC

Pros: Brings new life to P4 machines with only AGP or PCI slots (no PCIe).
Plays games from 2005 backward without problems, such as NFS U2 and UT 2004.

Cons: GPU (GT 610) is beefier than the CPU now (P4 2.8 Northwood), so I'm not getting the full potential from this card.

Other Thoughts: There is no AGP card with a GPU this fast, so I settled for a PCI card instead.
