The Asus R7240-2GD3-L Radeon R7 240 graphics card is based on the cutting-edge 28nm GCN architecture, and ships with 2GB GDDR3 video memory on a 128-bit interface. Games enabled with the optimized Mantle speak the language of GCN architecture to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality. The sophisticated Asus design, including super alloy components and a dust-proof fan, ensures best-in-class durability and reliability for trouble-free gaming – even in the most demanding environments. GPU Tweak utility allows you to fully monitor and optimize the settings, while the low-profile design of this card makes it perfect for mini-ITX and home theater PCs.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Graphics

Pros: Can run games on high (BF4), and never failed even when boosted up.

Cons: No sound in some games.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this card, it worked great, but the sound did not work on some games, and I have Gigabyte motherboard with fx-4300 processor. AMD motherboard and AMD graphics card should match, right? Recently I bought another video card (nvidia), and those games that had sound not working, apparently began to work just fine. So, my advice to all is to mismatch graphics cards with motherboards, AMD->nvidia gpu, Intel->AMD gpu.

3 out of 5 eggsBEWARE

Pros: Asus brand, reputation, well-built,

Cons: Beware: PCI 3 only.
NOT: backwards compatible with PCI 2
SUPPORTED only: Intel Ivy Bridge third-gen CPU or newer, AMD Kaveri 7000 series or newer.
Some older might work, but I haven't come across any, which is surprising, Dell, Gateway, emachines, Acer, various PCI 2 machines not supported.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 on sale, without 1st checking the reviews. Big mistake. The problem was right there in the reviews, but as usual you assume you know better. Long story short, I didn't.

I have 20+ computers, various brands, they only worked in the PCI 3 machines, so after a year of being paperweights. Maybe I'll put them in an Ivy Bridge with Subpar integrated graphics, Celeron, Pentium, "dual core Ivy Bridge without hyperthreading"

100 percent. My mistake. So take the three-star rating with a grain of salt as it's not based on the actual graphics capability.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work.

Pros: I put it into the express slot on my motherboard turn it on, Nothing on the monitor. I double checked all my wiring. I'm sending this back, for a refund. If you want a good graphics card get a Nivida card. First time getting a ASUS graphics card, and its a horrible.

Cons: Doesn't work.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for smaller power supplies

Pros: Low profile bracket included
overall compact size (not too long)
Decent gaming performance
Works fine with my 220-watt power supply

Cons: Wasn't free

Other Thoughts: I was searching for an entry level gaming card that would work with the 220-watt PS of my new Acer Aspire AXC-115-UR20 desktop. It has an E-2 6110 quad core processor at 1.5 GHz that only draws 15 watts. In addition to requiring a low profile card that only takes up one slot width, it had to be short enough to avoid hitting the USB 3 connector on the motherboard. This Asus card fulfills all those requirements.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Upgrade Card

Pros: If you want to upgrade an older home/ home office machine, this is probably your best bet. While it says a 400W power supply is required, my 300W supply does just fine. Nor does this card require a separate power input. We got this for my gamer son and he is completely happy with the frame rate he is getting on his online games. I'm sure this isn't enough for the state of the art, high end games but for upgrading a basic computer, this card hits the right performance vs price ratio. No issue with drivers either and very easy install.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDVI-D is lame

Pros: Works fine for one monitor on newer motherboards.

Cons: Doesn't work on some motherboards because it's PCI-e 3 only.

I didn't notice that this was DVI-D only. For those who aren't aware, this cripples the ability to use two VGA monitors without an expensive adapter. ASUS seems to be the only on doing this and its a lame move that trades profit for functionality.

The stupid bundled game package also cripples my exchange ability, because it reduces my refund to half the cost of the card. I will be more skeptical and investigative in the future, and unlikely to go with ASUS for a GPU again.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Good card for the price. Low profile. Takes up very little space. 2Gigs. Nice fan that doesn't require an extra power cable. Plenty of adjustable settings in the Catalyst control panel.

Cons: Had to download display drivers for Vista from the AMD site.

Other Thoughts: Got this card to replace an old outdated Nvidia card. I installed it without any trouble. Went to install the software from the disk and the display drivers didn't DL. So my system didn't read the card. I have Windows Vista so I double checked to make sure it was supported by the card. Right on the box it says Windows Vista. Along with XP, 7, 8, etc.

So I figured maybe the disk had bad drivers. I went to the Asus site to DL new drivers. They had them for everything but Vista. Same with a couple other sites. No go. So I went to AMD and DLed the display drivers for Vista and viola! Card works fine.

So if you're buying this card and have Vista, don't even bother DLing the drivers from the disk. Go right to AMD and get them. Save yourself the headache of the dreaded Code 10 error. Just DL the other programs like GPU Tweak from the disk. It allows you to DL them without having to DL the drivers.

Other than that minor glitch the card works great and I would recommend it as an upgrade to outdated cards.

5 out of 5 eggsGood For the $$

Pros: - Cheap
- Low Power Consumption
- Low Profile
- Quiet
- 1080 Resolution

Cons: Not going to do well with high end gaming applications...

Other Thoughts: I purchased this card to provide an HD video feed from a media center PC. For that application, it fits the bill perfectly. If my primary goal was to game, I would look at spending no less than $100 on a decent GPU, although I wouldn't be surprised if this card will play games at reasonable FPS on medium-ish settings.

4 out of 5 eggsIncompatible with my motherboard

Pros: Good Card. Played all my games at high settings when it ran.

Cons: Not compatible with my motherboard. I have an Asus M3N/H HDMI , AMD Phenom X4 9850 2.50 ghz, 4GB DDR2 memory, with PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot. This card is PCIE 3.0 x8 and my motherboard tried to run it at PCIE 2.0 x8. When it ran i got a message saying my pci express port root hub has stopped working. Then computer would shut down and it took me 3 resets to get it to post. After i did some research i found out that some older motherboards won't run PCIE 3.0 Cards but most will run them. I thought that since they were both asus that maybe they would work well together, but I was wrong. Now I'm running my old ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO PCI Express x16. works just fine but wanted a good upgrade.
