5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Gaming Card

Pros: Great budget gaming video card, great performance per dollar spent.

Cons: It's not as good as other video cards out there, but they cost hundreds of dollars more.

Other Thoughts: With my previous video card I was barely able to run WoW and GW2 on minimum settings. With this card, in my aged PC (PCIe 1.0 motherboard!) I am running Guild Wars 2 on maximum settings with zero lag.

5 out of 5 eggsIt simply works

Pros: - budget Graphics Card
- quiet
- does what you want, plays games on high or medium settings.

Cons: - none really, you pay for what you get. Enough said.

Other Thoughts: I had been using the integrated graphics card that came with my motherboard ever since I first built my computer back in 2010. As a college student my budget didn't allow, at the time, for a complete graphics card. That was until I saw this cheap little star. I read the reviews, checked that it was compatible with my current gear, then in summer of 2012 I bought it. When it arrived I immediately installed it into that PCI-E slot I had been looking at for some time. Boy was I impressed. I play League of Legends so I automatically wanted to see how it would run on highest graphics. 30-60 fps. I was so happy. Tried Battlefield 3 after that and wouldn't you know, perfect as usual. I highly recommend this product to anyone wanting a budget graphics card that simply works.

5 out of 5 eggswow!!!

Pros: I can't see why anyone would have issues with this graphics card! It has a great price, and runs fast. What else do you need for a budget gaming PC. I play a lot of League of Leagends, and with this I can place on max settings and run at 80 frames per second!!!

Cons: not 3D capable.......but for budget build who is lookingfor 3D graphics?

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent for casual gaming

Pros: - Excellent value
- Playable FPS at 720p
- Nice big cooling fan keeps this thing at 40-60 Celsius
- Extremely Quiet (this thing is a ninja)
- Compact

Cons: - Will cause some programs to shut down if you overload it
- Tends to get a bit loud at 90% memory usage

Other Thoughts: This GPU proves you don't need to spend an upwards of $200 to enjoy today's graphics demanding games. I was amazed with the amount of processing power you could get with a $70 graphics card. I've been averaging 25-40 FPS with medium settings on pretty much every current title (i.e. Crysis 2, Battlefield 3, GTA IV). Don't buy this if you're looking to play at 1080p though, that's where this card is limited in terms of playable FPS

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Runs great on a 300W PSU; bit tricky fitting it into a prebuilt case, just had to jiggle around the wires a bit. No problems since and runs surprisingly quiet on some games I tested (nothing major, games like Aion, Portal 2, etc.) Waiting to test Assassin's creed 1, 2 and Brotherhood, possibly Revelations. It handled Aion using the high quality engine on max settings with about 20-30 fps, which is fantastic.

No complaints so far.

Cons: None yet, here's hoping. I will see how well it runs with more high end games soon.

Other Thoughts: None

5 out of 5 eggsWe have a winner.

Pros: Will run Battlefield 3 on ultra with a 300w psu.
I cannot hear it, even if I max out all the settings.
It had built in overclocking settings in the software to push this card even more if you have a large psu and good cooling system.

It is under $100.00!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Good card for the price,

I have a Gateway DX with a core I5 2400, and a cheap 300w psu.

After i put this in it I was able to play any game on the market at default settings. Even Battlefield 3 on ultra without any loss of frame rate..
