Windows 7: What an odd graphics card.

What an odd graphics card.

I ran across this card:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R545D2-512D Radeon HD 5450 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card

Why would they add 2 HDMI ports, add 1 Display port, add VGA, eliminate DVI, on such a low end card?


Go figure!

Might be a good card for a low powered Home Server type machine? Easier to connect to home entertainment equipment and smaller size to fit into micro boards? Just a couple of quick guesses.

Here's another one, and if you look in the feedback/comments area it talks about how good it does video playback and how little power it consumes, sounds like these cards are targeted to Home server/DVD/Media centers that want small form factor and low power consumption....

NEWEGG.COM is the best!!!!! But ya i think they're made for smaller media center setups. Ill stick with the higher end cards that look like they're beast instead of something that looks like i could make myself. tehehe

On the cheap HP/Dell/ACER prebuilts with 200-300W power supplies that is all they can handle and twice the graphics of the onboard graphics of low end systems.

A lot better than my old HP with Intel 915 on board.
