Summary: The quality of this crd is great. For the price, it was worth it. This was a Christmas gift for my brother and it has really upgraded his machine. The graphics are crisp and clear. There is no lag or distortion with fast moving games. I think this would be a good addition for any computer.
Summary: This is just what I needed to solve my blue screen crashing problem. I have an HP Pavilion Elite E9180T PC and it was crashing more and more. I finally found out that it was due to the tiny, crappy video card that came with it. The fan is too small and it eventually gets clogged up with dust, overheating the system, thus it shuts down to protect your machine. This graphics card has a nice big fan and it solved my problem.
Summary: I was surprisingly impressed with this GPU. I only spent 110 on it at the time and still it works well. Runs most games on high at 50 FPS+. My only issue is the memory, only having one gig slows me down. The processor itself almost never reaches full capacity and memory is maxed out almost all the time. Overall good performance for the price.
I would recommend this card to any one except Windows 8.1 users unless you can get a driver update before installing.

Summary: I am very pleased with this card. I did run into one problem though. Originally I installed with windows 8. That worked fine until I was given the chance to upgrade to 8.1 for free. My graphics went bye bye so fast my head was spinning since my mother board does not have onboard graphics. There is probably a fix but if you cant SEE the graphic it does not help much after the fact.
