Summary: I needed to upgrade my video card in preparation to upgrade from XP to Windows 7. I was setting up the system to dual boot so I needed video drivers for both Win 7 and XP. This card DID NOT have any XP drivers and trying to get them from their web site was a waste of time. I sent an email to tech support and ASUS wants to send you to one of those "Driver Updater" web sites that want to CHARGE you for any drivers.
Summary: I bought it to replace a Saffire ATI Radeon HD 4650 w/ 1 GB DDR2. Although newer, it could not handle what the older version could. While playing Black Ops on my Quad Core PC, faces and flat surfaces were black. It kept asking to update Directx. I did with no luck. I made sure the drivers were the latest. Nothing changed. I returned it and bought another, older Saffire ATI through eBay.
Summary: I bought this one because it had decent reviews and mfgr offered a rebate. The company stiffed me on the rebate. The HDMI card works fine, I don't like the company. I feel they lack integrity.
Summary: After installing this card, my computer would not boot up. HD could not be read. Tried Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit install disk to repair but couldn't. So I had to remove the card AND reinstall Windows. Everything worked fine again until I tried to install this video card again for a second time. With the card installed, the HD failed to boot again!! Wish I had never bought this card.
Summary: I have installed many video cards, memory upgrades, hard drives. This one I installed it using a static strap on a wood work bench. I started the pc. Nothing. Removed the card. Tryed to start my pc... Nothing, no HP screen, no safe mode, NOTHING this card fryed my pc.
