Summary: Recent 2013/14 AMD Catalyst drivers have been unstable with this card. The latest "stable" release causes Flash video to go blank. So I tried the pre-release Beta/RC drivers which fixed the blank video, but results in an intermittent blue screen crash in atikdmag.sys. I finally concluded that AMD is not very good at writing stable driver software. I switched to an nVidia card which is rock solid. From now on I'm sticking with nVidia cards.
Great budget card that will run all newer games at a mid range.

Summary: I have owned this card for about a year and a half and it has very infrequently let me down. If you're looking for a budget PCIe 2.0 card which can run every new game out there with relatively good graphics quality then this is a great card. The negatives of this card are that it is not up to speed with newer PCIe 3.0 cards and it is a cheap mid range card that by no means will be running GPU intensive games on high settings while getting a high frame rate.
Summary: This graphics card worked great when I installed on Windows 7. The upgrade advisor (Microsoft) stated it is completely compatible with Window 8, no upgrade needed. Problem is, that as soon as I installed Windows 8, the drivers won't work. It was excessively difficult to contact Asus, but when I finally did get a response, it was to inform me that no Windows 8 driver was available and that I should just be patient. I was not happy with that answer.

Summary: When I saw the size, I was a little worried because my case is very small and condensed. All 3 slots were free though, and this card takes up space for 2 slots. After moving all wires out of the way of the PCI slot, I inserted the card. (At this point, I can see that there are 2 power connectors on the card, but the instruction manual gives little hint to what to do with them.
Summary: I have bought Asus products before and had no issues, until my graphics card died. I purchased this one as a gift after I bought myself a other one. The other one was newer. A newer model and died out in less then a year. If you have any issues with your product I hope you live in a place that has roads out. In Alaska we don't. Fedex ground only is there shipping method. If this one dies out too early I am out another couple hundred.
Summary: I think this is the best video card for the price right now. It will probably change in a couple of months but the performance once overclocked rivals video cards much more expensive. This thing runs really stable as well. 5 stars.
Summary: I could have gone with something faster or better than this graphics card but I'm happy with this one. It's more than enough to handle all my games that I play and whatever I want it to do ; well I'm actually playing Battlefield 3 on 1080p with everything on ultra and I'm at 32 to 45 FPS. Overclocked it a little bit just for fun and I gained a small of amount of FPS on my games.
Summary: i put this in the system that i just built along with an asrock 970 extreme 3, AMD FX-8120 and 16gb of AMD 1600 MHz RAM(which is yet to be delivered). i did, however, put this in my existing system (prebuilt HP P6610F) with an athlon ii x4, 4 gb of samsung ram, 250w psu...... and did manage to get it to work, but im pretty sure there was a major bottleneck going on, since, in minecraft others were getting 1000+ fps with this card and i was getting about 150 (still over...
