Summary: I purchased this card to go with my new budget gaming rig. It performed nicely for the price, however I quickly began noticing that it would begin displaying visual anomalies (artifacts) after the card exceeded 60'c, an arguably comfortable temperature for a card to stay on. This could have just been an issue with the specific card, however I wont fail to mention it. Keep an eye out.
Summary: Has improved on their products over the years and this I like. What I don't like is dealing with those automated email boxes to deal with customer service or tech support. It's like visiting a physicians office, you can call to get the appointment, show up and pay the co-payment but after you leave the office and need to call back with a question, the phone is going to send you around the world. I do not like these email address stations that you can't reply back to.
Summary: This card is ok, it's quiet and is adequate for most games. But, there is a problem, at least with the one I received. On system start up, the first thing my computer displays is the video card blurb, which is normal. What is not normal and what an end user should never see is the statement, "Engineering Release - Not for Production Use." Sadly that is what this card displays.
