Summary: Remember to sign and date your rebate application before you mail it.
Pros: Inexpensive, Windows 8.1 drivers are available, very compatible. We used this one to add a video card to an older Asus motherboard with integrated video for which Windows 8.1 did not have a driver available - this card did the trick and enabled us to avoid having to buy a new motherboard & CPU.
Cons: Card is somewhat slow and has an older GPU. Mail in rebate takes a while - I received the rebate card 37 days after mailing the rebate materials. I've had good luck with this rebate processor: 'Rebate Processing' (4myrebate) in El Paso,TX ~ 30-45 days to receive the rebate vs the other rebate com...
Summary: Good budget card but plan to pay the full price it seems impossible to get the rebate they promise.
Pros: Got the GPU and it works as expected. Budget card with 1gb ram does the job
Cons: Don't count on getting the rebate I sent in all the documentation but my rebate was declined. They sent me a link to what I sent in and it was all there but it says receipt missing but I printed it from my slice account that tracks all my parches and keeps copies of the receipts.
Cons: I knew the rebate would be denied. They use the same scam-artists that every tech hardware company uses, down there in El-Paso TX. Somehow the Invoice I attached magically disappeared. I even took pictures of everything I put in the envelope with my phone. Total Scam.
Summary: Great card for a web surfer computer and office use.
Pros: This is a budget card your basic budget system or a business desktop/net workstation. You get exactly what you paid for. The desk top and programs look great, drivers are nice and it does its Job well. Anyone buying and installing this thing to game should look up the game's system requirement. N...
Summary: One thing I learned from this never include the rebate in the final price if you are building it for some else.
Pros: What can I say it's a low cost video card.
Cons: Purchased the card 12/6/2014 for a workstation that does not need an expensive video card and it had a 20.00 rebate so I ordered it and sent off the rebate the day after I received the card and now its April and no rebate. After looking on the internet I saw many complaints about Power Color not ...
Summary: Cards with better performance are available from other manufacturers for same or less money.
Pros: Price with rebate was good. But see cons.
Cons: Two issues: 1. Poor performance. My 5-year old Dell SFF with a socket 775 CPU has better native performance than this card does. Wanted this as a backup computer I could hook up to a TV and needed the HDMI output. While it worked, the Windows experience score was actually worse with this card. 2....
A good upgrade over the video systems included on most motherboards
26 March 2015
Summary: This is an inexpensive video card that is being used to upgrade the system included on the motherboard. It is a great improvement, and works well. It is not a top of the line card for serious gaming, but for casual use. It has a VGA, DVI and HDMI port built into the card.
