Shaky 1st Experience
Pros: Video speed and detail was good, easy to install, includeds S-Video out and is compatible with Windows 7.
Cons: Card does not work after 2 weeks of being in use (installed in a brand new Dell tower). It powers on (the fan moves), but is no longer visible to the computer at all - no video signal, no error logs, just dead. Back to on-board video until this is resolved. It may just be a lemon. Will attempt to replace it via Newegg and see if the next one is better. For a video card that cost roughly $125.00, more is expected.
Other Thoughts: Will attempt to replace it via Newegg and see if the next one is better. For a video card that cost roughly $125.00, more is expected.

Does what I intended
Pros: I intended to use this card for intensive gaming from mid-high range of settings. As not having a top of the line CPU and mid RAM level I wasnt expecting a huge increase but I was suprised. This card fixed 75% of my problems upgrading from my 1650 raedon. I got it when it was cheap as well. I dont think its worth 140$ but it certainly is a good card for being low profile.
Cons: Can overheat a bit faster than expected but it wasnt intended to be the best either
Other Thoughts: Again I dont think this is worth 140$, I purchased mine when it was 50$ and that was a great buy. If you have the extra $$$ and cant afford the 5570 low profile then this one is probably for you. Although I'd save up for the 5570 since it will out do any card below and some above it.
