Asus AH3450/DI/512MD2


$59.00 Released April, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:HD video playback looks great even with older processors/systems. Inclusion of HDMI output is great for this price. Highly inexpensive for an ASUS card.

The Cons:Tends to require more adjustment than most cards, some tinkering in BIOS likely required. Stock drivers are buggy and require updates from ASUS. Fan is rather loud for a card of this size.

The Asus AH3450/DI/512MD2 is a video card for people looking for a video card that can handle HDCP, is low-profile, and goes in an AGP slot. This unique combination is backed up by a moderately fast processor and a fair amount of memory.
