Decent, for the price...

  • Summary: For the money, buy something with better specs. 1Gig just doesnt cut it.
  • Pros: I've owned it for 5+ years, and its still running.
  • Cons: Super loud fan (Somewhat annoying) CPU gets hotter than normal (Had to apply new thermal paste) Display driver fails sometimes and has to reset, sending windows into recovery.

Good quality but breaks down

  • Pros: Very good game quality, can run ultra on the games that i do play.
  • Cons: After a year and a half, my fan finally broke down. It sputters on and off and is impossible to play any games anymore.

Finally time to upgrade

  • Summary: I picked this up for a gaming rig in 2011. It has ran well with everything I threw at it. You can't run stuff on "Ultra" but "high" to "very high" it can handle. The cost was great and I have literally had no issues with it.
  • Pros: great price, durable, low heat, good performer
  • Cons: low heat but fan is working HARD and kinda loud

This is a great video card

Shon, Amazon

  • Summary: I would have given this 5 stars if you could overclock it and it was a little quieter. This is a card for my mini ITX PC and it's the best video card that I could find that would fit into my shoebox sized case. Overall, this is a great card.

Great for Gaming

Jonathan G., Newegg

  • Pros: Very good graphics card, can handle almost anything on very high or ultra settings.
  • Cons: For some reason I had a lot of hiccups with the card restarting my computer when I got it at first but haven't had problems since the first week. Also, the fan is so loud.

  • Summary: Will probably contact XFX about fan for replacement.
  • Pros: Fits mid size tower. Stays cool. Handles all the games I play
  • Cons: Bought in May 2012. In Feb. 2013 cooling fan has begun to make noise. Sounds like the bearing or bushing, whichever this particular cooling fan uses.

  • Pros: So far so good. Ran a video test on it to check it out and it did fine at 100% processor it stayed at less that 85% fan speed. I read about it being noisy and yes it is louder than the case fans but quiter than my old computer grinders.
  • Cons: Discontinued seem ominous and hopefully it will last.

  • Pros: great card, i can play games on med-high settings but also thinking it has to do with my cpu because it maxs out. its purity quite for duel fans
  • Cons: seems to get hot, gets to 79c but im sure thats because of my case, ordered a new case with good reviews on cooling. the driver process was a bit annoying and im lucky i have every type of cord to hook up my monitor because the driver cd didnt work and you have to go to the site and download them
