5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Low End Card

Pros: No complaints. Bought this to play BF2 and Warhammer and it sails. Was upgrade to 7300LE which would alarm for overheat and show artifacts and blank out. This shows none of these problems. Always stays cool, even on high graphic settings.

Cons: Can't find any. Wish it had a low profile adatper, but I can't be picky.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, capable for low end games and streaming media.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Spend the extra 20-40 dollars and get a different card if you're intending on playing anything more graphics intensive than WoW or Spore.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: I have tried over the past 3 months to get this card to work, i have updated drivers, reinstalled drivers even went as far as to reformat my hard drive and reinstall everything, to no avail. This card consistently crashes my games, whether it's warcraft 3 or warhammer on low settings i cannot get anything to work, my onboard 128mb ati graphics work better than this card! I tried to be patient but it seems that this product just doesnt work.

1 out of 5 eggsLocks Up on Biostar mobo

Pros: Looked good for a while

Cons: I installed the video card on a Biostar P4M900-M7SE mainboard and got the latest drivers for Vista32. The card would randomly lock no matter what configuration or driver I used and only a cold boot would revive.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if it was a combination of components from the ultra-cheap barebones I got or the card itself, but I got instant approval of an RMA from Newegg. Going to try another budget card from Newegg.

3 out of 5 eggsDid not last long

Pros: Ran great when I first installed it and gave me good performance, even with Age of Conan

Cons: Card started crashing and locking up on all games and videos after about 3 months of use, put in my old card and was back in business

Other Thoughts: Newegg, is giving me a replacement card no questions asked, hopefully this one will last...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for Vista Areo & more

Pros: I just needed a card that would run Vista areo and
a few games fairly well. I was very surprised to see
Vista score (1 to 5.9) on Graphics it got a 4.6 and on
Gaming Graphics 5.2 ! Inexpensive not cheap.
Fan is quiet but does it's job.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It benchmarks much better in XP than Vista by
as much as 20% and I was aware of that so
it meets my needs completely.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Good

Pros: All I can say is, runs much faster, and looks better, which is all I really wanted, compared to my built in card.

Cons: If you hate any sound at all, you might not like this card, but it's barley noticeable at all.
