For the price, it is perfect

  • Pros: Card has no fan so it is very quiet. It works exactly as it should for its purpose, which is a simple card to watch movies on that has multiple monitors. The price is very low.
  • Cons: none at all

Best Value

Kevin K., Newegg
6 April 2015
  • Summary: I go to TechArp.com and view the AMD and NVIDIA parameter tables. The main thing I look at is the GT/s and GP/s divided by price ratio. For low end PCs, GP/s (Pixels) are more important than GT/s (Texels). This one is 2.6 GP/s. Not bad for $29.
  • Pros: Best value video card for inexpensive applications, like low-end PCs and all other PCs that don't need great gaming graphics. Silent operation. 1GB.
  • Cons: Not much. Horizontal cooling fins?

Works in Older Mac Pro!

William W., Newegg
27 December 2014
  • Summary: I was hoping to upgrade the 256M ATI2600 card in my 2008 vintage Mac Pro (3,1, running MacOS 10.7.5 "Lion"), without spending too much on a lost cause. Initially it didn't work, but I followed the instructions here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4091453 (I hope that link is allowed; it's got...
  • Pros: HDMI, Fanless, Better than stock ATI2600 card in Mac Pro 2008
  • Cons: Requires hacking system files, does display during boot.

Great little card

Henry D., Newegg
27 November 2014
  • Summary: No fan but not a big deal. Stays pretty quiet.
  • Pros: For a $40.00 card this is a great little thing. Playing Splinter Cell Blacklist on ultra and highest temp is 40. Did not even have to over clock. So for a budget graphics card this is the one.
  • Cons: none

nice starter video cards

Johnathan P., Newegg

  • Summary: If you're planning on trying to use this as an actual gaming graphics card you might want to go for something more powerful but if you just need a simple and strong card then this little guy is perfect.
  • Pros: We use these little guys at the medical company I work I.T. for and I've never had one go bad on me. The girls pretty much only use them for dual screening but I recently got one for my girlfriend since she does a little minor gaming and graphic design and she's never been happier. The card handl...
  • Cons: Heatsink gets pretty hot but not at a dangerous level. As much as I love sapphire cards (I use an HD 6870) the catalyst control center might bug you beyond belief. You can only update the drivers through the control center and if your mobo or CPU are faulty in any way it can sometimes keep the co...
