Summary: I recently built my own gaming PC, (With the help of the reddit buildapc subreddit.) and this card was priced around 95$ when I bought it. I have a monitor that's around 720p and I haven't run into a game yet that I can't crank up all the way at that resolution. Some games will even work in 1080p at medium settings.
Summary: I've had this card for a long time now and recently its been giving me a bunch of trouble by causing my computer to go blank for a few seconds and then my computer returns to normal prompting a notification that my display driver has crashed but has successfully recovered. That was about a week about and happened about five times a day under no load at all, just browsing the web or starting up my computer.
worked for a little bit then started giving me trouble
4 March 2014
Summary: i bought this card a to replace the intagrated graphics on my cpu. when it arrived i installed it and the drivers then everything was great. after a week or so of use my monitors started flickering and adjusting the cables didn't work i tried downloading new drivers and then tried uninstalling the intel drivers that where for the integrated gpu. after trying everything i declared the product as defective and sent it back.
Summary: This little card packs a punch! I can play Battlefield 3 on Ultra (30fps 720P) Crysis 3 on high Titanfall Beta high with around 30-60fps It's a good card Pro: Low power works on a 350w PSU The fan makes no noise at all. The highest the fan speed ever hit was 40%. Runs games very good. Cons: The New Drivers (1/31/2014) causes system crashes. Wait until the next release to update.
So far so good. Had to bend the bracket a bit to make it fit.

Summary: Didn't exactly fit my case. That might just be my particular setup. I had to remove the top screw from the VGA port so I could bend the bracket out slightly so it would line up with the screw hole in my case. Since I'm only using the DVI port, it didn't matter. Otherwise, it works perfectly. We're not hard-core gamers, and this is a HUGE step up from the x1650 card we have been using.
Summary: Great bang for the buck. Video intensive games resolve nicely even at high resolution and frame rates. Quiet and well built. Only I didn't get mine from Amazon. The unit I ordered from them got left on my porch, completely unprotected, in a storm. I never opened it. They were real good about the refund though. I wound up buying from Newegg for the same money. I know the bad delivery wasn't Amazon's direct fault but I'm not going to let bad service slide.
