... when I installed it into my pc made a terrible noise and no video was displayed
13 August 2014
Summary: Was loose in the package it came in no padding to keep the GPU from breaking when I installed it into my pc made a terrible noise and no video was displayed! Highly disapointed about this product.
Summary: I just installed this, so I don't have any type of longevity-related feedback. What I *can* say though is that GTA IV, San Andreas, Vice City, and Lib City Episodes all perform really nicely now. The GTA IV benchmark tool reports that I now get 50fps.
Summary: Extremely pleased with this upgrade (I realize it's an old, outdated GPU). I'm upgrading a very old gaming PC, piece by piece, on a very tight budget. This was a huge upgrade for me. Install was a breeze. I kinda freaked when I turned it on though.
Summary: I bought it for an affordable Linux box video card. I wanted to use Nvidia. Price seems steep.... If ATI updated their drivers more often, I would have wen't with them. ATI drivers break my Archlinux install because it wants to use older packages than I have installed.
Summary: I bought this to upgrade a PC that I built for my 10 year old. He plays a few games and watches DVDs and Netflix. No issues at all with this card. Its quiet and performs great. Good buy for the money.
