Summary: Can play games at low-medium settings on a cheap rig. I recommend using this with your old rig for MMO's or any game you want to play at OK settings. For the price at less than 100 dollars, it's worth it to extend the use of your old rig before upgrading.
Pros: This is a very low profile graphics card. It only takes up one card slot in the back of your machine. I don't do any heavy computer gaming so it is perfect for my needs. It boosted my windows 7 score from around a 3 up to a high 5. It doesn't run hot and it doesn't require much power. It supports...
Cons: It is not supported on Ubuntu 10.10 or 11.04. After the boot screens load, the screen will turn to black and I couldn't figure out how to fix it.
Summary: I used an Nvidia GT 520 before this card. The 520 worked "ok" for some things, but with some applications like Sony Vegas, it struggled really badly. This card works way better than that one. Games run like a dream on this, but they did run fairly well on the 520 aswell.
Good for those who bought low-spec PCs from Dell, etc

Summary: If you bought a standard mini-tower system from HP, Dell, etc and now you want to play a game that needs some 3d muscle, this would be a good choice. On my 350-watt power supply, with no extra HDDs or anything to suck power, it seems to run fine even under load.
Pros: This was the best combination of performance and price after rebate I could find on a video card that did not require a extra power connector and would not destroy my low-rated power supply.
Cons: No faces will be melted from the performance on this year's games.
Pros: Low cost, decent performance, and quiet. I run a low-to-mid-range PC and this does exactly what I need it to do for a DX11 card. Replaced a 4650 512MB, got some performance increase as well as the additional RAM. Runs most games just fine.
Cons: Performance is not spectacular; you're getting what you pay for here. If you expect games to run on high or ultra, you'll want to spring for a higher-end card.
Summary: The reason for the review title is when I bought the card it said there was a mail in rebate, I did not know that where it said "mail in rebate" (it is not a colored hyperlink link like the one where it says "Free 2 day shipping"),that, that was a link.
Pros: The card does everything that I need it to do, runs BF3 fine. I'm getting 30fps. This will hold me over till I can get a couple of 6950.
Cons: No issues with the card. The card would have gotten 5 eggs if not for Newegg. See other thoughts.
