Summary: I bought this card to replace an NVIDIA GeForce GT420 in a four year old HP computer running Windows 7. The card installed without problems and works well. The power requirements are somewhat confusing as the ASUS web site says it uses a maximum of 75W but the box recommends a minimum 450W system supply with 12 volts at 24A. My computer has a 300W supply and after two weeks there are no obvious problems.
Summary: So far so good. This was installed in an old Intel D945GCCR motherboard. (It has PCI Express x16 V1.1) Specs: CPU: Intel E4600 Core 2 Duo @2.4GHz RAM: 2xKingston 1GB @800MHz HDD: Samsung 2TB @5400 rpm PSU: Don't remember the manufacturer... but it's 400W The build must have like 6-7 years by now. It's a PC running XP intended mainly for work, photo editing mainly. This card, along with PS CS6 brought new life to the machine.
Summary: Bought this (AMD) graphics card because it was a good match for my (AMD) computer. I also boosted up the power supply to a Cougar DX600, 600 watt model. There is very little heat coming out of the back at the fans. My seti@home work unit score doubled with the addition of this card. I am well pleased. It's a little noisy but I can live with that.
Summary: Improves graphics performance, and allows bigger games to be played in CIV IV(yes I still play it, FFH and CTC). Amazon had misprint on mail in rebate, $30 instead of $10. Amazon covered the mistake without any fuss or hassle.
