5 out of 5 eggsFirst ATI card I've used.

Pros: Works perfectly fine, great card for the price.

Cons: Card feels filmsy when installing it at times. Didn't lose an egg since every card I've touched inside a case feels the same way.

3 out of 5 eggsGood card - MIR scam

Pros: Basically good card. Problem arise the first installation. If the card is pushed normally in the pcie slot, the computer wouldn`t boot ! I had to raise it by washers. Not sure if that`s the card or the new Gigabyte mb. Seems that the contacts do not align properly with the slot if inserted normally. Can`t tell which is wrong. But with that workaround, it works fine.

Cons: MIR MIR ! No news from the rebate after 3 months. Contacted them and of course they told me it was rejected while ago. Never bother to notify me. They won`t take the Commercial Invoice sheet from the Newegg shipment. I don`t know if I will ever get it. MIR are still a big scam. They have been abandonned by the major retail stores, I don`t know why NewEgg still use them. So don`t count on MIR when you purchase an item, there is a 50/50 chance that you wont get it.

5 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: Overclockable
Cool and quiet

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This card is a lot better than I anticipated. I didn't want to go crazy on a graphics card and this seemed like a reasonable step above very low end cards/integrated graphics. I am pleasantly surprised that it has run pretty much everything I've thrown at it. I played a few older first person shooters (like Rainbow Six Vegas) at 1920x1200, medium details without a hitch. Ran pretty smooth. Not perfect, but seeing how I paid $50 for this card as compared to $300, not going to complain.

You can definitely squeeze every last once of power out of this card via ATI Catalyst. This thing can overclock quite a bit and still runs at reasonable temps.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Gaming Card

Pros: Great performance for running games at 720P (or slightly higher than that) with max settings. Has excellent heat sink and fan for cooling.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I had upgraded from a Power Color 5450 and the performance difference is like night and day. I can finally run my games around 720p with max settings and no stuttering or dropped frames.

I have been buying Power Color graphic cards off and on for many years. I have yet to buy a bad card from them, despite the company not getting the best reviews from other reviewers. Power Color offers excellent performance for the price compared to competitors and in my opinion, has made great strides in quality from their early days.

Give it a shot.

P.S. - Thanks Newegg, you rock for fast 3 day (or rather should be 1-day) shipping. I ordered the card on a Tuesday and it arrived on Wednesday. Only once have I ordered something from Newegg, as far as I can remember, where something was actually delivered on time, not early, and that was due to a snow storm ;-)

5 eggs on top of the 5 eggs for the Power Color card for Newegg's shipping.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Replaced my onboard HD4200 Graphics. Took my Windows experience score for graphics from 4.3 to 6.7!

Cons: First board was DOA. Newegg was quick to rma and send me a new card. New one worked great. Would give card 5 eggs but for the first one being DOA.

Other Thoughts: Now if I could just get my Call Of Duty 2 to run on Win 7, 64 bit.....

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good!

Pros: No problems so far. It installed fine with the newest ATI drivers from the AMD website. Much better performance than my AGP x1650 pro-obviously.I've never owned a PowerColor before, but so far so good.

Cons: None that i can think of. It's not Neweggs fault, but Eggsaver shipping was slow! New Jersey to Rochester, NY took eight days! That was including weekends but still?

Other Thoughts: We'll see how it goes. I have had problems with ATI and NVIDIA stuff in the past.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Good value, very quiet, DX11, Plays Blu-Ray flawlessly

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I had a Biostar TH55B motherboard with an i530 CPU as my spare computer/HTPC. The setup worked well and with a WD Green AV drive was virtually silent. I decided to add this graphics card, based on price/performance, and it gave a significant performance boost with little or no change in noise levels. I also added at $49.99 Asus Blu-Ray player and test disks played well outputing to a plasma HDTV used as the monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Card, disappointing rebate

Pros: This card was easy to install and got an old P4 to play Blu-ray discs. I am extremely happy with the card and the performance. Having a full range of connector choices, it's great for VGA, DVI and HDMI (with audio). I set up a Media Center PC and found this card to fit well.

The card did not allow me to play back HD content from iTunes on the P4, however I bought a second one to put in an Athlox X2 and it allows playback of all the media I have thrown at it.

Cons: The reason for the 4 eggs is that the rebate is only limited to one rebate per household and you have to sign up for an account to be able to even submit the rebate.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy with my purchase

Pros: The price for what this card can do. The performance was just what I needed and it didn’t cost me an arm and a leg to upgrade my old x1950.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: I'm a light gamer but I mainly like to run movies off my computer and some photo editing, video editing, etc. I needed to upgrade my graphics card since the last one I had didn’t play with DirectX10 let alone X11. Didn’t want to spend a fortune on the upgrade and did my research and came up with this gem. I had an old PowerColor X1950 and it lasted me forever so I thought I’d stick with a proven player. Overall it’s a good card, not going to break any speed records but it’s solid.

5 out of 5 eggsTook a gamble...

Pros: ATI Catalyst and Stream, low profile fits my slim case, can run my HD movies and light gaming with no problems. Can’t ask for much more from a cards with this price tag.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is the first time I’ve bought from PowerColor and I have to say that I’m pleasantly surprised. I had issues setting up the Eyefinity at first and called their customer service line and they helped me set it up in no time. I’ll be a repeat customer for sure.
