GREAT CARD, VALUE
6 September 2012
Summary: great price graphics and overall shadows, shading,colors and shines look very well with this card. Buy this play with your existing and well look like a new fresh game do to graphic enhancement
Summary: Decent card for light gaming and everyday work. easily overclockable. If you are tight for money, you could do a lot worse than this card. The only thin I didn't care for was, no external pci power hookup. All power for card is drawn from the pci slot.
Summary: I bougth this video card for my PC to improve my graphics, but this is really more than I expected. It runs games like NFSU2, AOEIII, and other very fast. It has improved my system performance a lot. I'm really pleased with this video card, and the price is very good. I recomend it to anyone who wants to have a good video card for low price. Surely you won't be disappointed.
Summary: I purchased this video card as a "low end" alternative since I love high end games but can't buy a $300 video card to run them. Well, I don't need to. I installed this video card into my PC. In case you're curious, here are the specs: AMD 64 X2 4400+ 2.3Ghz Dual Core 2 GB RAM 320 GB HD 22" Acer Flat Panel Monitor Running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 And I added the nVidia GeForce 8500 PCIe card. So far, I have been wildly impressed.
Summary: I bought this because the orange box games would crash using my integrated intel card, which was the weak point in my otherwise well equipped system. The card costs NOTHING considering what you get. It installed easily and I can now run anything I care to at the highest settings with unvarying smoothness.
Summary: I was looking for a quality video card to drive my new 22" widescreen monitor and render graphics for pc video games. This card performs well and does not require extra power supply - it simply plugs into the PCIe slot and configures easily with the supplied software.
Summary: If you've a pre-built HP Pavilion or a Dell this is a great card for it's price. You don't need to replace the power supply to install it and it fits the PCIx16 in the Pavilion. Vista drivers work with no problem and the cd drivers really improve performance of the card. The graphics improvement is noticable, very noticable over the integrated crap graphic chipset. Mass Effect for the PC is a completely new game with this card.
Not that great of a card for much other than basic use, or watching HD content...

Summary: Well, I purchased this card as an upgrade from my EAX300 video card, which had 128MB of DDR Memory, and a 64-bit memory interface. I was expecting quite an improvement over that card, however was less than impressed. I have a program on my computer called Real Desktop, and what it does is make your desktop 3-d. This performed alright on my EAX300, but I was hoping with my upgrade it would be better. I was wrong.
Summary: I just bought a 24" monitor recently, and this card with its DVI connection is truly the item that tops it off. DVD's like I have never seen before. It also has the power for HD or BluRay. It only requires a 300w power source, which my HP has. I just love this setup. I had a nVidia 6150e in my HP. This is a five minute changeout. Just add the card, and hook up the cable. Run the drivers, and you are in.
