Summary: Seemed like an okay card, installed without difficulty. The card was stable once installed and running (for the money, I was expecting a more significant boost from this over the ATI Radeon HD2600 PRO I was using previously). I think the issue is more with the older AGP-based platform I'm using to run (modern) games on. Gaming on PC's will probably always offer higher resolutions and better performance (but at a SUBSTANTIAL premium).
Summary: I bought this for a friend who didn't have money for a proper system upgrade. It gets you current to about 2007-2008 era gaming graphics. If you desire the latest and greatest, you'll have to make that investment for the new PC. Kudos to Gigabyte for even giving these old AGP systems an option.
