Summary: lets talk about the basics and affordability. These drives handle just about everything you have to throw at them. Sure you can spend a ton on a large card but why do it. For the money this card has done wonders and continues to run with no problems.
Summary: I just got this card and so far the experience is wonderful. Upgraded from a much older card, and the video is stunning now. I use this system mostly with CAD, and this card outperforms my old nVidia Quadro card by leaps and bounds.
Summary: I bought an HP Pavilion Media Center A1640n computer recently...a fine value but weak graphically speaking...couldn't play the graphic-intensive games I enjoy. This card made the system what I had hoped for in the beginning. And was a fine value to boot. Easy to install, too. Very pleased.
Summary: this is a great card for the budget minded gamer. There are not many games it will not play and settings at a above medium and just below high. Stable and solid and MSI will stand behind it as I would too.
Summary: When I changed over to Windows 7, there was a new scoring system rating to show you how fast your computer system was running. All my scores were high, yet the Windows 7 told me that my graphics was 4.0 and my total system was rated at 4.0!
Summary: This card is great if you want silence over power. I don't do gaming so this card is perfect for me. The heatsink is very large, so if you are considering it, verify you have the space in your case and on your motherboard.
Summary: This card has everything except 3d (the kind you need 3d glasses 4) to get you in the door of any game. Moreover, if you want 3d get the Nvidia GT 240! Furthermore, everyone swears by Radeon; however, Nvidia is the way most games are met to be play!
