Summary: Needed to upgrade older desktop running linux, but didn't want to upgrade things like power supply. Plugged this card in and it worked. Needed to install the catalyst software from amd to get the full capabilities such as full range of resolutions. I am enjoying this machine as my media center now.
Summary: It's a good video card, notice I said video. It plays 1080p video very well and the sound is excellent. The downside of this card is it's not something you'd use for the most recent of games. It will play your average graphic intensive games just fine.
Summary: This is by no means a high end card. You wont be able to play games on ULTRA on 1080p. So if you think that get it out of your head right now. As for my experience with the card, im satisfied. This can run most games at medium settings at around 720p. just fine.
Summary: Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the instructions and included software don't install like they say. In reality the install was super easy, plug in card, install the LATEST drivers and be on your merry way.
