Summary: Running this in an HTPC, with has some old-ish components, and does some double duty as a mild gaming machine for the living room. I haven't had too much time to play around lately, but I do know that this little card runs Skyrim on high with good fps (40-60) on 1366x768 resolution.
Pros: low power draw, runs very cool, impressive performance so far.
Cons: You're not going to tackle the latest titles at high res/fps, but you should know this going in. The 7770/7790 is probably an overall better deal if you're looking to game on a budget, but I didn't want to risk getting a card that wouldn't run on my existing PSU.
Summary: First let me start off with my current PC: Dell Optiplex 760 Small Form Factor (SFF), Windows 7 32 Bit OS, 4GB RAM, Intel Pentium E6500 (Pentium Dual Core Wolfdale), WD Green HDD, stock Dell PSU (235W) and a Asus 24" LCD running at 1920 X 1080 (native resolution).
Summary: I've hard this card for over a year now and it hasn't given me a single issue. Some background on its use: - Has played some games such as Amnesia, Portal, Portal 2, L4D2 and many more on max with no lag or any issues. Amnesia on max settings looked AMAZING on this card.
Pros: Great card for the price, easy to install, fairly large, is quiet, has lasted a while, installing drivers and usage never posed a single problem. Fan barely even has to run. This is also being used on a 300w PSU that's probably generic as I put it on a pre-made computer I bought a while back, so ...
Cons: Size may prove to be an issue in towers below mid or certain MoBos, but it was fine with me.
Pros: This card definitely worth the money. I had a galaxy GTS450 before and it takes up huge space and power resource plus make a lot of noise. With this card as a replacement I felt almost nothing while I am playing the game.
Summary: Running an older computor, video card started dying, began looking for something to replace it, couldn't find much. After much checking many websites, this card began to show up as a good card, checked Amazon, found it, bought it, installed it. It really helped speed up my system.
Summary: Pros: - the card can run on 300w system, i.e. a standard dell 755 power source so no need to upgrade - the card is low profile - easy to install, comes with two face plates which accommodates both SFF and MT model computers - comes with adapters for hdmi to microhdmi - comes with install disk of...
Summary: The biggest draw back I guess would be, using this card made me want more. As I endeavored to build my first PC, I was like a crack addict from the graphics high of this sapphire. It forced me to new highs as I took a hit from a 7950.
Pros: This was my first card as I was trying to do my first major PC update. Well long story short, I found out that you really can't do much with a cheap old Dell with a core 2 Duo and a 350W power supply. THIS CARD DID HOWEVER WORK! Here are a few things that was great about this card. -- Way better ...
Cons: None really... but this card (and getting hooked on PC games) made me build a PC that could handle a much bigger graphics load.
Summary: I purchased this product for a Dell Inspiron 531S. The S indicates that it is a slim line case. The product came with all of the parts necessary for installation and modification. However, none of them were necessary for this particular computer.
