Summary: I was slightly concerned that this card would not be up to much due to the low price, how wrong could I be. Slotted it straight in and it worked straight out of the box wouthout any problems. O.k the graphics are not megga fast but its given my P.C a much needed boost.
Summary: I have a fairly old Dell desktop running Windows XP, which came with a Radeon X600 graphics card. That couldn't really cope with World of Warcraft on a 1680x1050 display, so I wanted a compatible upgrade that would give me more speed.
Summary: PC is a 2011 Dell 560 with G43 internal graphics. I wanted to install FS flight sim X and be able to get smooth detailed graphics without spending the earth. The PC went from 3.5 to 5.6 on the graphics test (Windows 7). Also increased from 15fps to 50 on another 3D test program.
Summary: Although the box and description states it is compatible with Windows 7, it took me 4 hours to install this graphics card. After doing endless things to my computer to get it working it turns out all i had to do was download the drivers from ATI..
Summary: Every time I have installed cards in the past, Windows 7 always installs immediately without me needing to do a thing ! Not so this time, and as someone else said, the disc that comes with the card aren't the best drivers FOR the card.
Summary: Obviously this is not a top of the range card but it will deffinatly get you along with todays games. I can now run sims 3 on full spec and world of warcraft on practically full spec this makes me very happy! I thought id need a new power supply but i have a 300 watts and have no problems.
Summary: Having just upgraded from an Nvida 7300GS 256mb graphics card to this one the difference is massive. I downloaded the handbook from gigabyte which said a seperate power supply would be needed which was a worry but when the card arrived there was no socket to put a dedicated power source to the card.
Summary: Now I'm not saying this is the best card on the market. It is however the best card for its price, all the latest games such as Mass Effect 2, Modern Warfare 2, Empire Total War, Dragon Age Origins, all run perfectly smooth on it at very high or in some cases the highest settings.
