Summary: I bought two of these cards for my PC and they have definitely held up well. They do a great job on performance for the price. They might not handle the latest game at the highest settings, but you're probably not looking for this cheap of a card for that anyway. I've been running bitcoin mining (essentially running at 100%) constantly for months with no crashes or other issues.
Summary: So far, so good. I've only had this for a day -- it was easy enough to install. I missed the auxiliary power connection the first time around and couldn't figure out why my new graphics card wouldn't work until I looked up some installation videos for this card on YouTube. Installation went very smoothly after I connected up the auxiliary power connector.
Summary: I bought this about a year ago for 140$. I was looking for an affordable, good performance card - and that is exactly what I got. It runs silent most of the time, however during some games such as Guild Wars 2, it makes a little noise, and I mean a little. Wearing a headset and listening to the game you can't hear a thing, so there really is no problem with the 'noise'. Pretty quiet. I haven't had a single problem with this card.
Summary: unforturnately, the people that make these things think everyone that buys them are it techs and they therefor leave out important information that they know second hand... i would recommand that they remember that not everyone spends all of their time living in front of a computer (updated with the lastest everything) and take into account that most of the people that will or would buy this item are using what they would call outdated motherboards because they still...
Pros: I've had this card for about a week now and it is absolutely incredible!! I have far cry 3, far cry 3 blood dragon, and battlefield 3. They all run at maximum setting without lag! Awesome card for the money, definitely comparable to higher end nvidia cards that are $100-200 more expensive. A great buy for anyone building a pc on a budget.
Cons: I honestly don't have any to think of. This card is near perfect.
