Summary: This graphics card is amazing for the price. It can encode movies very quickly as well as play games. It probably can't play the latest and greatest games, but anything before a couple years ago it can play easily.
Excellent. Quiet. Works with Ubuntu 10.10 perfectly

Summary: I fitted this to an ASROCK motherboard on a system running Ubuntu 10.10. It was worked straight away. System settings and search for drivers highlighted the need for an updated driver. I downloaded and activated the new driver.
Summary: I was looking for a cheap PCIe graphics card to upgrade from the onboard graphics of my 3 Ghz, Pentium 4 motherboard. I was apprehensive, owing to potential overheating problems, of buying second-hand, so decided to go for something new and cheap. As a 63 year-old pensioner, cost was a big factor.
Summary: I needed a quick and cheap video card to replace the original that had failed in my Dell Inspiron 531. I am not into gaming but wanted a card to support my 1280 by 1024 pixel display properly, to display off air television and play DVDs. This card was an obvious choice for my applications.
Summary: Does the job realy good i read a few of these saying they make loads of noise i cant even hear mine lol Oh yeah dont forget to disable your onboard graphics before you put it in any problem im happy to help catch me on Skype Chris_Farrington224

Summary: excellent value for money, arrived in a couple of days,easy to fit and windows found the drivers without inserting the disc.it has helped with the problem of my faulty on board graphics card. not had chance to test it fully but runs well at the moment with no problems.
Summary: My video card was dying....my computer really needs upgrading but at the moment I'm reluctant to do so for many reasons. I hunted for a compatible card and found this. It was equivalent to the Ge-Force card that was dying and it has done the job.
