Released September, 2009
The Pros:Works great with Linux-based HTPC software. On-card video decoding drastically reduces CPU usage - great for multitasking. A solid upgrade for those with onboard graphics.
The Cons:Integrated fan is small and noisy. Requires a 350 watt PSU - fairly power hungry given its capabilities. Included drivers are outdated - users must download the latest from NVIDIA's web site.
The Asus ENGT220/DI/1GD2 is a mid-range video card aimed at people looking for a low-cost solution that can handle most applications. This card should be able to deal with most day to day tasks easily, but won't be suitable for hardcore gamers.
