Should have gotten a higher bit rate (like 128, 256, or higher). But works fine.

Summary: This was a HUGE upgrade on my old Acer computer. I ignorantly bought a 2GB thinking that I was getting something awesome (for my non-gaming uses; I watch streaming videos and DVDs on a 30" monitor, 2560X1600 resolution).
Summary: Replacing a Gt 430 with busted fan. My idle temps are 29c. Highest 37c (when playing live TV in Media Center. My old card used to log 74c when the fan worked.) Also .wtv and 1080p files used to stutter in MPC-HC. Not now, even with madvr. I don't game at all so this is a great card for me.
Pros: VERY cool temps. Very quiet. Runs movies great without stutter. GDDR5, 2Gb memory instead of 1.
Cons: NOT PCIe 3.0. Don't know why they said it was! 64bit instead of 128bit.
Summary: Have used this card to play Civilization 5 for a few months. So far very happy with it. Although it is not an expensive one, it can handle 1920x1080 with high quality settings. The game runs much smoother than the Intel HD graphic with 3rd gen i5.
