Summary: Good little video card for the price. Wouldn't suggest it if you're into hardcore gaming. It suits my needs for video streaming and the few Steam games I play. It's a little slow running some of the higher end games. Also, if I stream Youtube out to my TV I get horizontal line across the screen.
Summary: I am not a gamer but needed a relatively inexpensive card that would allow me to add a third monitor for business use. Works like a charm. Very fast and quiet. One warning, you will need at least one of your monitors to have a display port connection to make a 3 monitor system work with this video card. (as well as a mxm display port cable). Once I put together all of the necessary pieces, Windows 7 recognized the 3rd monitor no problem.
A really good card for the money - not heart stopping but really good

Summary: I recently bought and have installed this card. It replaced at 6450 (horrible card) with 1gb ddr3. Let me say that this card is miles better than the 6450. The ATI catalyst even upgraded without a hitch (I had to do a system reload when the 6450 tried this). All my instability is gone and it runs what I want very satisfied with this card. Now this isn't a top end card - this is more well off the ground and definitely not on board video kind of card.
good card , make sure you have lots of ventilation

Summary: good card , maybe great for the price. runs warcraft at 50ish frames per second no matter what the setting. although ultra has some turning issues. if however you do not have really good cooling and/or ventilation it does heat up. i have the case open and a small household fan blowing into it right now and the problems seem to have gone away. even just browsing or facebooking causes issues without the extra cooling.
Summary: I purchased this card several months ago to upgrade from the same class but in the 5xxx series, so the 5670. That was a great little card. And so is this. This is certainly no powerhouse though. It will NOT run the newest games on maximum settings at an enjoyable frame rate. It just won't. Odds are though, you're not looking for perfect, or you wouldn't be looking at a $100 card. Therefore, this card does it's job, and I am very satisfied.
