Summary: I bought this originally to replace an old Radeon 4870 that died.. That 4870 was LOUD LOUD LOUD.. So the fanless design was a big draw for me after spending about 3 years listening to jet engines when I game..
Pros: I Used this thing in my old computer and gave it away with that computer to my teenage son.. I took the build apart and had him put it together so he could start building machines of his own.. (without potentially costing me alot of money..) He plays all of his steam games with it now.. Counter S...
... HAS TAKEN A BEATING and its still running just fine for me

Summary: This card HAS TAKEN A BEATING and its still running just fine for me. I had this hit with water countless times.. drowned in automatic transmission fluid.. overheated.. rusted.. all of it.. and she's still alive after about 4 motherboards.
Summary: Find the setup.exe that you need to run, on the disk mine was in a folder called windows7vista8 or something similar. If you downloaded the newest drivers (which I also tried and I suggest you do), simply extract the package that you downloaded and find that folder.
Pros: Card itself is great! High FPS on games and great benchmark results. Very quiet with no fan, I absolutely love it. Couldn't ask for better value for price.
Cons: The catalyst software is bugged when trying to install it on windows 7 32 or 64 bit. Google "catalyst software install blue screen of death" What basically happens is that if you try to install the catalyst software, it'll blue screen when in the "detecting hardware" phase. Initially this happene...
Summary: I installed this on a media center computer build, I use this to run a 20" monitor and a 42" flat panel TV. I have used it to stream movies from Amazon Prime and have had no issues from the card or picture quality. Have also used it with You Tube and other web surfing.
Pros: I've built a lot of non-gamer systems and the graphics were always the bottleneck, even in a system with a pretty cheap processor and a 7200 rpm HDD. I am finally seeing the light and buying a decent dedicated GPU instead of relying on APU's, which, in their own right, are superb. I now have a WE...
Summary: Bought this card mainly so I can use it for dual graphics with an a10-5800k. Benchmarks showed a 30-40% increase in performance with dual graphics. This is a good choice for a casual gamer on a tight budget. Your computer case should have good airflow for this card.
Pros: - Low price - Silent - Dual Graphics - Can run recent games on med-high with very good FPS
Cons: - The shield of the card was a little big and would not fit into my tower slot, I had to bend metal and force it in. Partly my fault for buying a cheap case. There is no free Dirt 3.
