Summary: Im still using this card for gaming and everything else. I really want to upgrade but now i am stuck waiting for the new amd line to come out hopefully soon. I certainly wouldnt buy one of these now. I have been using mine for 4 years 10+ a day and its still going.
Summary: This card sounds like a jet engine and on top of that it was displaying artifacts while I wasn't even gaming. I would not recommend this card to a friend or even my worst enemy no matter how affordable it is. Go with a 7700 series if your on a budget you do not want the headache of this card.
Don't want to spend more than $50? This is what you were looking for!

Summary: Pros: This card is ranked 115 out of 947 cards and I got it dirt cheap here. Fastest card of it's time and still very competitive even now. It looks like a beast and it performs like one too. Two power connectors to reduce draw from the motherboard.
Summary: Amazingly good card. Running BF3 at high getting around 50-67 frames at 58*C. Amazing. WoW on ultra. Seems you get enough ram to backup the card it will perform optimal on about everything. Also ran Metro 2033. You havent tested a card till you play this game. BELIEVE ME..
