5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It is serving its purposing exactly as i had anticipated it would. Cheap upgrade to a machine that need just that little extra push. Those games that tell you, that you dont have enough video to run it, this will easily resolve that. I also agree with the comment made by another member who rated this about adding an extra cooling fan to a pci slot to help keep it in tip top shape.

Cons: None that I have seen as of now, It does whats expected of an inexpensive mid level card.

Other Thoughts: I agree with the comment made by another member who rated this about adding an extra cooling fan to a pci slot to help the life span and performance of the card as it is nearly impossible to keep a dust free system.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Card

Pros: It is what it is. Its a graphics card with low power consumption. For what it is it does great. I am using it in an old e-machine I had with an amd athlon II 250u (1.6ghz) and 4 gig of ddr2 800mghz ram. I am using a 350 watt psu and don't want to upgrade this comp any further. The onboard nvidia 6250se was barely capable of running zuma's revenge for my girlfriend without lagging up slightly. After installing this card I can now run skyrim on high settings with AA turned off. (disabled visual themes and desktop composition in the compatibility tab) Thats a big difference. Its not the best card out there mind you, but then again its not supposed to be. If you are looking for a cheap upgrade to an aging system and don't want to overhaul your system then this will work just fine.

Cons: I don't like the lack of a fan on this system almost as much as I do like it. I would suggest keeping this thing DUST FREE!! I repair computers for a living and I know most people don't. If you are getting this for a family member make sure they do this or get them a slot fan for extra cooling. I would recommend the slot fan anyway. They are cheap and can be gotten most anywhere. Most connect with a standard molex (4-pin) power connector.

Other Thoughts: It amazes me how strong these low power solutions are starting to get.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent, cheap, 2GB card

Pros: Quiet, sleek, and does what it's suppose to do.

Cons: My computer did not like the card and ati catalyst combination at all!!! Installed the drivers through windows w/o catalyst and it works fine.

Other Thoughts: If you can deal with having a basic card and don't need to overclock it, it's great and cheap for 2GB of memory. But it really, really hates overclocking, even just by a little.
