Summary: I purchased this card to replace my nVidia card that I overheated. After installation of this card, I would get pink spots in random patterns over the screen. Previous to the installation, I had a very stable system, but afterwards, I had numerous blue screens of death (BSOD).
Summary: The price on this card made it worth while. I had purchased it based on the fact that I had a HDMI to DVI converter to give me a second High def. output. It operates okay but could use additional features such as individual output adjustment. It indicates that it does this but ends up adjusting both monitors when using the DVI and HDMI outputs. The driver disk was useless with Windows 8.
Summary: I'm upgrading three older Dells with feeble PSUs (~300w) to Windows 7. After some research (Tom's Hardware Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart & PassMark Video Card Benchmark), I decided 5450 64bit cards were the best bang for the watt. I bought three - this one, a Sapphire, and an Asus. I tried all three in a Dell Optiplex 330 running Win7x64 and ran WEI. XFX was the slowest.
Pros: First the good news - it works on Windows 7 (32 & 64) so I'll keep it. However, it wasn't much of an improvement over the old OEM card.
Cons: Now the disappointing news. Right out of the box the card did not look like the one NewEgg pictured. It's the correct model #, but the heat sink on mine is smaller and does not wrap around the back.
