  • Summary: This guy is only slightly more powerful than your average integrated graphics, possibly worse. Its main advantage is it's ability to be overclocked. From my experience, this card can be stably overclocked for 45% more power, given that you can find an effective way to cool it. Also, this card frequently goes on sale on some sites. I've seen it being sold for as low as $10.

Rebate? hmm..no, dont buy it

Kyoungjin M., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • Pros: It works for only simple and light works, like low quality movies, ms office and internet. silence.
  • Cons: First of all, If you are interested in this product that is because of rebate. Yes, it is worthless without rebate. So, then do not buy it. Long story short, POWER COLOR CUSTOMER SERVICE is SO POOR and MAKES YOU LOSE REBATE MONEY. They won't email you for any missing document for the rebate and your waiting becomes meaningless waste. What is customer service? For them, "let me check your status" and "No, you cannot get rebate."..... after more about 4 months.....

Good for what it is

Frederic S., Newegg
18 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this as a placeholder for a new machine while I took some time to study the graphics card market, and I'm really happy with it. I have a KDE desktop that looks stunning in 1080p HD, able to stream videos etc. just fine.
  • Pros: Works well out of box. Literally 0 effort (using Linux, new Gigabyte mobo) besides attaching it to mobo. Good play back of video.
  • Cons: Struggles with games, rendering.

Forget about the rebate - It cost what you see

Oliver S., Newegg
29 May 2014
  • Pros: The cards are great HTPC cards for cheap
  • Cons: If you are planning on the rebate......don't. It is an act of congress. You could get a bill passed easier than receiving this rebate. The website goes up and down. While you can get your rebate info, there is no real "contact" for a status. I have done 2 rebate in 5 months and I haven't rec'd either yet. So the price is what is.....

Met my needs, no unexpected problems

Gary L., Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: I have now installed 2 of these cards, both in similar HP Compaq low profile desktop machines originally used for business. I needed to add some hardware graphics while staying within the low profile case and not exceeding the capability of the small outline power supply or my budget. Being more skilled than most purchasers, I selected this GPU as a compromise between speed, power drain, excessive heat to get rid of. Installation was not too bad.

graphics are great for online play.

  • Summary: I could play World of Warcraft now in the high setting and have a decent FPS. If you want an upgrade, but don't need ultra settings for the graphics, then this video card is for you. Plus, it's "green" to save the earth lmao, SO it's fine with me.
