Summary: Needed more graphics capability. For the price, this is a very good unit. Plug in replacement. Keep in mind that you may need to upgrade your PC power supply to meet the specs for this graphics card. Recommended.
Summary: At the end of the day, you're simply not going to get a top game-playing experience out of this card, or any other that costs less than $100. The large budget AAA games we often test will require you to run them at medium detail levels, often with reduced resolution, to achieve playable framerates. But that in itself is quite a step up from integrated graphics, which often don't play these games at all due to poor drivers or lack of proper DirectX-feature support.
Summary: Well after about 30 hours of messin around with drivers for this card from sapphire's site and from ati's site still cant get this card working right. When it does work i get nice FPS on lower settings in WOW. Sometimes it will work for 8-10 hours straight, sometimes it will crash comp, sometimes it will turn monitor black and stop feeding video signal, sometimes screen will freeze up and puter will restart.
Summary: I was looking for something to replace my old AGP card. I couldn't afford to much so I decided to buy this rather then buy a whole new system. It's not as good as i would like it to be but this is AGP so you cant get much better. for the price i would say its a good buy if you want to keep your old comp around for a few more years. It can play starcraft 2 on medium/high depending on the processor. I recommend this to those casual gamers who still have an old system.
Summary: I thought the ample VRAM and greater GPU would yield better quality, but turns out I was wrong. In Win7, when playing a video with enlarged window size of the player, the video simply proceed at a extremely low speed, almost stopped.
Summary: Replaced an ATI 9550 with this on my old Compaq. It works great and I can play some games I couldn't before. Be aware of the power requirement though, especially the amps. Older or lower watt/amp power supplies may not handle the HD3650.
Summary: I bought this Graphics card for my Son's several year old computer. After reading all the reviews we could we decided on trying this one since it said it was for older computers. My Son is into gaming and before he installed this new graphics card the old one kept over heating and shutting off. After installing this card it hasn't shut off at all. Grapics are awesome looking now too.
