Summary: Went right in. Computer fired right up. Installed the drivers and has been working great since. The tower it went in is an 06' Dell and in a confined space. I think that the extra fan will help it last much longer for a decent price.
Summary: First thing that I noticed is that the card was making fairly loud noise when scrolling on webpages. Next the card started shorting out every 10 minutes and emmitting a bizarre LOUD series of electronic squeaks and chirps! My question is WHERE on the card is these noises even generated??? There is no speaker! LOL Funny thing it worked fine other than that, with good graphics performance. but these bizarre noises got real old, real fast. Had to return.
Just what you paid for. would recommend for mid level gamer or sweet htpc

Summary: Works great. I can run most newer games at higher settings. Im happy with this purchase.. Crisis 3 , Diablo 3 , Farcry 3 , Batman Arkham , Rome II , BF4 , COD ghost.. handled whatever i threw at it. maybe not in highest resolution on all those games but i was getting better than xbox results.
Summary: this is a entry level graphics card its the kind of card you get if you are on a budget but want to be able to play games on medium to some high settings, which in pc games still look amazing. it allows me to play games like saints row, need for speed, crysis, dead space etc.
Summary: The card delivered to me was the MD1GD3, which is different from the MD1G Unlike the nVidia GeForce 8400GS I first tried, this card installed and booted up with no problems whatsoever on a Windows 8 64-bit system that has an older onboard nVidia GPU. I did, however, first go to the MSI website to download their latest driver package and installed that rather than the disk provided in the box. It later updated with the more recent driver package from the AMD site.
Summary: I bought this for my Dads computer and it works great it bumped the video score on windows 7 up to 6.7. He is very happy with the video card and was a good bump up from the Radeon 5450 he had before in the same set up.
