Summary: If you need a great video card and aren't into direct x 11 this thing get's it done. The 4850 is one of the most reliable cards out there and it'll give your older systems a boost in performance with minor pain and max gain. If you have a crossfire MB get two and you'll have a great upgrade.
Summary: Well, I must admit that I should have known that it was risky to buy a used graphics card; but I bought this shipped from Amazon through an approved third party seller. When I first set it up in my older upgraded model HP Pavilion computer,(a1428x model with A8AE-LE mobo upgraded to 4GB Ram and an Opteron 185 cpu and a 600 watt psu) it seemed to be fine. I had first connected it to the computer through the HDMI connector (with an HDMI cable).
Summary: This is one best grapchic card 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
Summary: I bought this for a media PC I was building. I mostly stream video from the internet and watch movies. It is hooked up to a 50" plasma via the HDMI port and the quality is excellent. It has been running along for a year now with no problem at all.
Summary: This is one of the VERY few video cards that support 4 monitors at once (up to 1080p) and only takes up one PCI express 16x slot. You can also adjust the resolution of each of the 4 monitor outputs (VGA or DVI) independently. I am not a gamer, but I do audio/video production and this card did everything I needed when I needed 4 monitors to run at 1080p. Keep in mind it is a power hog so I recommend a 800w - 900w power supply in your computer.
