Summary: Finally finished my new build. The said video card boots to bios with no drivers, good test video card at the least...............................................................................................................................
Summary: Really needed this and when I hooked it to my computer ....no problem. Bought this a while back....still working wonderfully. Kick in the great price and not having to drive anywhere because it came to my door and that makes it double great.
Summary: This card is great for the money. i put it in my cheap emachine et1161-05 just so i could play some games. I play battlefield 2 with it. it runs the game on high with everything cranked flawlessly. this card is awesome. also if you do your homework this card will be fine with a 250 watt psu. at peak this card only peaks at 173 watts, eventhough they recommend a 300 watt supply. card is a great buy for the money especially having a hdmi output.
Summary: Simple: buy if u need a new video card for cheap.. this thing W0RKS.. I had it for a few months now and haven't had a problem yet.. I don't really do any gaming but for the basics it gets the job done..
Summary: I've bought two of these, and guess what??? Neither of them is working. No video at all. And I can't return them, because unfortunately I'm already in Brazil. The cost wouldn't be worth it. So, I bought two other ones here.
Summary: At our small business, we have a bunch of cheap desktops running all sorts of operating systems from Windows XP to vista to Windows 7. None of these cheap systems have dual monitor outlets on the back of the system, so we searched for an inexpensive method to allow dual monitor outputs. In comes the Gigabyte Radeon card.
Summary: I should have paid attention to all the reviewers that were blasting ATI because all the cons they mentioned come with this card came to me. I installed it and lost my WIFI and the sound didn't work. Diagnosing the problems wasn't going to happen because my memory usage was going through the ceiling and that doesn't make any sense at all.
Summary: I can only comment on the seller. I found that when the product arrived and I went to install it, I already had a great Video Card installed. I only needed to purchase a cord adapter for my Samsung Monitor to run (in the high definition it was meant to be). I was able to send back the product and got a speedy refund. It's great to know that if a product doesn't work out, it can be refunded, or replaced.
Summary: Not sure if there was a mistake made in the factory or if all of Gigabytes video cards have 1GB but my card has 1GB not the 512MB I was expecting. Great deal for $35, 1GB cards go for $60 or more. No problem installing with the CD on a Win XP Pro system despite getting a msg that the card did not pass the Win logo test and a warning that I could stop the install.
