A good standard video card

Summary: Be careful when choosing video card - actually fairly complex to evaluate all parameters.Not powerful for the high-end video games, Type of video slot PCI Express16 bit version x (do you need 2 slots), what operating system are you running (for me XP almost did not remember to check OS) I did not...
Pros: A good standard video card. (Not powerful enough for high-end games)
Pros: The card was easily installed with no problems and gave me a 5-20 fps boost in CS:GO with an a6 5400k. This is without crossfire between the APU and the GPU however, as my mobo doesn't like me very well.
Cons: I wish I would of spent an extra 20-30 for a better card.
Summary: This is an inexpensive but serviceable option if your motherboard lacks video capabilities.
Pros: I liked that this GPU produces so little heat that it can be operated without a fan. The heat sink on it was not very extensive, either. The pictures it produced were just fine. I did not use it for much 3D video gaming.
Cons: After a bit more than a year of operation, my computer failed to boot one day. When I pulled the video card and used the built-in video, it booted fine. My replacement card didn't work,at first, but I pulled the Firewire card and then it worked again. I wonder if the Firewire card was the problem...
Summary: I have one of these in an i7 running the 50 foot hdmi cable. Trick - put a 100% (no zoom) magnifying glass window 2" by 2" on lower right of desktop, to track the mouse when it moves over to the extended desktop 1080p TV across the room - that way you don't have to try to read from across the room -...
Pros: This is my 3rd card - for a 3rd computer. The first I've had for 2 years, the second for a year. And I will likely pick up one more as a spare. This is an ideal home theater card, with hdmi and nice hdmi sound. I successfully support a 50 foot hdmi cable on the installation in the sunroom. (It's ...
Cons: Not really a con - but this is a passive card - if you really stress it with lots of gaming I suppose it might heat up - too hot and you'd have to add a fan - not hard to do if you have a spare molex connector. Another item - because hdmi sound is included - your motherboard could kick out the on...
Summary: for the price, its worth the upgrade graphic
Pros: its a very good card for the price. plug and play, very easy to install for anyone.
Cons: however, card gets very hot due to the fact that it doesn't have a fan. but cards does what its worth the price, for my 13 years old daughters cp. I just attached a small fan on to the card and it stay cool enough.
Summary: Annoyed that Sapphire stiffed me on the rebate. A few weeks after I registered the rebate info online and mailed the forms, they send me a message saying they haven't received the paperwork yet. Well its not worth my time & trouble to resubmit for $10.
Pros: Low cost card for a low end system, works just fine at 2560 x 1440. Not used for gaming, so speed is not an issue.
Pros: Um.. It plays 720p video? That's pretty much it.
Cons: I got this for $100 a while back expecting a good card to play moderate gaming on. I wanted it to at least run TF2 at 720p 60 fps, but it can't even do that. It runs it on an average of 34 fps on the lowest settings on AN EMPTY SERVER AND A STOCK MAP. This card is the worst. Don't buy it. Just sa...
