A Little Card with A Little Umph
Tyler V., Newegg
9 January 2015
Summary: I bought this card years ago before I had a well rounded knowledge on hardware and hardware components. If I was smarter, I would have thrown my $100 elsewhere. All-in-all, this little card is still not useless by any means and I still plan on putting it through its rounds until the day it dies.
Pros: It still works well and can play older games well and newer games all on low.
Summary: Mostly wanted to comment on the fact that it IS Win 8 compatible. You must use Catalyst 13.1 from the AMD website. Yes, it`s in legacy status (along with the 3000, and 4000 series cards), but works flawlessly with my Win 8.1 system.
Pros: Great for video watching. Smooth, clear graphics. Uses only 35 watts. Quality of build is better than newer cards.
Cons: Too old and slow for the newest games. Needs a DVI to HDMI splitter to hook up to today`s flat screens.
Summary: Wanted to get another few miles out of an older system, so when my video card started to fail, I purchased a VisionTek 900181 to replace it. Bad idea. Crashed my system so thoroughly I can't even see BIOS info, much less boot into Win 7.
Pros: Arrived quickly without damage
Cons: Crashed my system so completely that I can't boot. Swapped in my old video card back in but the system is so completely hosed that I can't even access the BIOS screen.
Summary: This card Is best used with older mother bords with Windows Xp. When Xp operating systems came out. On Cross fire No. Will not support cross fire. must have cross fire interface and jumpers to connect them together. It is what it is.
Summary: Someone told me once that video cards were like oats. If you want good oats then you must pay the price for good oats. Or you can buy oats that were through the horse once already. Of course, that kind comes a little cheaper...
Cons: I am seeing the same problem reported by Cuddles: screen goes to powersave after "Starting Windows" is displayed. I have Win7Pro.SP1 on a new Intel DP67BG with I5-2550 and 8GB RAM.
