Summary: Upgrading an office computer for a client. The old card I had installed wasn't far off from this in price or performance, but it was passively cooled. It would crash a lot when my client would watch intensive videos and the case has more than enough fans to keep it good.
Summary: Integrated graphics are usually pretty bad. This card will upgrade your graphics and let you do some light gaming if you don't have $100-$400 for a more powerful card. It does not require a separate power connection from the power supply and it only takes a single slot.
Pros: This card is a bargain, especially during black friday with a rebate.
Cons: I built a new pc and used my previous monitor (Asus VW246H) and I've noticed that after my system turns the monitor off after a period of inactivity, it takes a really long time to turn back on when I return. If I turn the monitor off and back on, it is fine. The monitor connected back to my old ...
Summary: Don't get this card, Piece of feces Black Friday deal. When I bought it. I knew better but who could pass up a 15.00 decent video card even if you knew there was a chance of poor quality. I got a lemon so after the return I hope my luck gets better.
Pros: -Installed easy -Decent Graphics -Upgrade over old (oddly enough xfx card that had the fan die on it) (but after 4 years)
Cons: -2nd video port didn't output any video -Overheating after a week. My system has a gazillion fans and the cpu averages 23 for temp so no overheat issues in my system, it's the video card. So when I was playing some Starcraft, next thing I know I get a whole bunch of green pixels everywhere, you k...
Summary: Not worth the retail price, but if it comes on sale again, I would recommend it , especially if you don't plan on blaming.
Pros: Picked this up on black friday for only $15 after rebate. Apparently the cards being sent out differ in clock speed and memory speed. Nevertheless, I received one at a 650mhz clock speed and memory running at 500mhz. I overclocked it using AMD's overdrive up to 750mhz and 520mhz respectively with...
Summary: Got 2 from elsewhere and they were both, checking the AMD control center, in speed closer to 4650's. The control center doesn't honor that "enforce smooth playback" is off, and my setting of deinterlacing to highest quality keeps getting cancelled.
Summary: They made some junk 4650's and labeled them 4670's. Not even worth it for $15 if you value the quality of your video playback.
Pros: None Anymore
Cons: Due to the slow speeds of CPU & Memory, as reported in the AMD Control Center, even though I set it not to enforce smooth playback, on reboot or on playing an interlaced DVD, it cuts back the deinterlacing quality -- I had it on maximum. I could try to see if it doesn't with dynamic contrast off,...
Summary: If you're looking for something cheap, there's probably a better deal out there. If you want something that can game for cheap, there's probably a better deal out there. Couldn't pass up given its price on Black Friday, otherwise not so much.
Pros: Better than on-board Handles most games well Fan cooling Not power intensive (worked on a 300 watt PSU), making it a decent upgrade to mainstream prebuilt systems.
Cons: Would not recommend at standard price Very hit or miss when it comes to gaming
