Summary: This will crossfile with most higher end APUs but I got it for my brothers A4-5400, which turns out only crossfires with an 6450. You live, you learn, and you put it in the other thoughts for others to learn from your mistakes. Good luck.
Pros: Worked right out of the box, no extra power needed. Duels with AMD APUs (A6, A8, and A10). Although it doesn't crossfire with my brothers A4, my bad, actually did bring my brother's to Rift settings to medium-high at playable frame rates (20s-30). An improvment over th iGPU of his A4 which only l...
Cons: Not so cheap considering some R7s cost about the same? Kinda old chipset / model now a days. Almost out of stock?
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. Love their customer service
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.
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.
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...
Good HTPC card - BAD FAN - Replace with 60/80mm with zip ties

Summary: I am happy with the gaming performance I get out of it, I have it paired up with some old hardware (Core2 1.86ghz, 4gb DDR2, SSD 60gb, 1TB HDD) and it games great.
Pros: Low Profile is great for affordable HTPC setups. I had a AMD 4350 that just couldn't handle the 3D ISO movies. Upgraded and this has no problem with smooth playback. Also games well at on my recently replaced 720p TV. Mainly Xbox controlled games like Dirt3, Rayman Origins, Sonic All Stars Transf...
Cons: THE FAN is terrible. It started making ticking bearing noises within 6months. Ordered a replacement ASUS fan off a auction site and that lasted about 3months. Searched all around for replacement cooler options. Then I remembered I have a ton of extra PC hardware laying around. I applied ArticSilv...
Pros: FPCAP Polymer Capacitors - Should last a very long time Reasonably fast - Does everything I need it to Overclocks well - All the way to the driver's limit for me Huge amount of VRAM - Twice as much as my main RAM Potted coils - Haven't heard any whining from the VRMs
Cons: Fan started making noise about a month after I got it. It's been about a year since then and it still works, it's just very noisy.
