exactly what i wanted

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. But if you are looking to play the newest games, you'll have to turn the graphics way down. This is not a complaint, it does exactly what I bought it for, it's an observation.
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. Some games require you to go low settings for a good framerate, but its no big deal. As for the software it comes with, the GPU overclocking is pretty grate. MY card never goes above 96 C.
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. Since I'm an IT guy and people ask me silly things all the time though I started this thing a long time ago where I actually read the instructions and follow them to see what goes wrong...well I did and the software did not install...
Running well under Linux and open-source Radeon drivers

Summary: This card is not going to break any speed records but performs well enough probably thanks in part to the DDR3 RAM. It plays Warzone 2100 and Chromium BSU well. I have it running on an old IBM ThinkCentre M51 workstation with only PCI-E v1 and this card is stepping back nicely. OS is Linux Mint 14. Benchmark testing scored 341 running GLMark2. I'm sure a PCI-E v2.0-capable machine would score considerably higher, as the card could then run at full I/O speed.
