Summary: As a gamer, I've discovered that the newest generation of games require a much stronger, more sophisticated graphics card than the one that came stock with my PC, so I began researching what would work in my Dell, and of the 3 or 4 recommended by Dell, the VisionTek-Radeon HD 4650 really hit the mark for me. It has all the functionality I need for the games I play, and even some things I don't need like dual monitor and HD capability.
Summary: I was very pleased with how well this card worked with my Dell Inspiron 530! I was worried that it would require more wattage than the stock power supply could provide, but it really sips the voltage! Quite an excellent low power upgrade. Lotsa bang for the buck! This card offers awesome performance for the price. Unreal. I am recommending this card to a friend of mine who is in the market for a similar product.
Summary: The VisionTek ATI Radeon HD 4650 Graphics Card installed easily and worked great.....for 8 months and is now dead. Everything else is still working on the computer and power is run through a surge protector . The return warranty ran out Jan. 31, 2013. So after spending $90 on this graphics card that should still be working I now will have to spend more money on a new card. You would think that this card should have a longer working life?
Summary: Before buying this graphics board, I had purchased two others from a local store that should have worked with the Dell PC that I had, but didn't. This board went in easily and worked perfectly.
Summary: I am very satisfied with this card. I'm not a big PC gamer, but I do play WoW and The Sims 3. The graphics are much better than they were when I was using the card that came on my Inspiron 530 - an Nvidia GeForce 8300 GS. I am able to play WoW on ultra settings without experiencing any lag.
Summary: Just installed this in a Dell XPS 420 to upgrade from a 512KB card. Installation was simple, but I needed to switch the rail from the short one pictured to a longer one in order to secure it in the case. The longer rail was included in the box, along with a 3rd option that I didn't need. Switching the rail was simple enough: remove the hex screws on either side of the DVI connection to slip off the short rail, switch to larger rail, replace & tighten the screws.
