Summary: I bought this after deciding it was time to upgrade my computer and having spend hours upon hours scrolling through various reviews and product listings for graphics cards that were compatible with my motherboard. This card came up trumps! I only had a small budget but, following the catastrophic failure of my previous graphics card, I still wanted to be able to run games with high spec graphics.
Summary: This is a pretty decent graphics card, there are many better cards even with the same chipset but this one will allow you to run most things at semi-decent settings even in a half speed PCIe bus, I cannot comment on fan noise as my computer is an old server and thus any sound the card makes is drowned out by the 747-esque drone from the 8 40mm fans in my box. The sappire website also states this card supports AMD crossfire, though again I was not able to test this.
Summary: I don't play the latest games so I just wanted something that could play HD video etc, the 2gb model makes a money worthwhile investment. Once installed, the power hike I got was better than expected. It took my Graphics Window Experience from a very modest 3.2 to 6.8!! What a brilliant piece of kit...Easy Install and fantastic value for money...
Summary: Bought this as I needed a low profile card for my PC. Runs every game I throw at it at 720p, may chug a bit at 1080 but I'm fine with 720. Hint: don't try & crossfire this with the AMD A8-3850 Quad-Core Processor - 2.9GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, Socket FM1, APU, Radeon HD 6550D, as it only makes things much worse in my experience.
Summary: Eh this is a decent product for the price although you could get something slightly better for a couple more money spent this will run most games on medium to low although some games you could run in high settings without any troubles. If you are just starting out I would recommend this product.
