"No different than original except price!"4.5 starson by ramsj900
Pros: Fast, cool fan graphic, flawless operation
Cons: short install bracket
Summary: I have both the Nvidia and this one and they are identical in every way except price. I don't see a reason to buy the branded model unless you have too much money to handle.
Operates smoothly and is the best deal for intel socket 478 AGP 8x boards I have found. Don't try to install if you have a board and case combo where you have tall spacers unless you want to use your pliers to make a few 'at-home' mods to the bracket.
