Summary: I have had this card for a couple months now and have not had any issues with it. This card runs very quiet and works great for video encoding. Gaming performance could be better... I could also buy an expensive card and get better performance.
Summary: I bought this video card to replace my five year old one. I actually wanted a 7850 version but my budget did allow for that so I went with this one. It actually draws less power than my old video card and but requires a separate 6 pin connector. The fan on the card is not loud to me as some users mentioned. This was quite a step up for me and my games have been running great. I was able to also get some free games that came with the card that made the deal even better.
Pros: price, runs cool, free games, and doesn't require a powerful power supply
Summary: If you're a casual gamer like me and just play (I just play a little CS:GO, Starcraft II and a the odd RPG here and there) then this card will do everything you need. I play everything on the highest settings on my 1920x1080 monitor and never have a problem. I didn't score very high on 3DMark11, but when it comes to practical use, this is a great value card.
Summary: Saw this card for a sick price during Boxing week, so I scooped up one for my brother to replace an inadequate 6450. Borderlands 2 and Battlefield 3 now run amazingly well, albeit not on MAX settings. But for around the $100 mark in terms of graphics cards available today, it's well worth it for the casual gamer. I only wish I had bought one for me as well, but alas, there was a limit.
Pros: -Very good performance for the price, -MSI Afterburner can overclock it, -Has DisplayPort in addition to HDMI and DVI, -Supports VGA with DVI-VGA adapter
Cons: -Does not have VGA (for older monitors), -No PhysX support on card (owned by nVidia)
