5 out of 5 eggsGood For the Price

Pros: - Runs cool
- Quiet
- 2GB
- Small
- Plays most games at 720p
- Cheap
- Overclocks very easy
- No problems after over 6 months of use

Cons: - DDR3 VRAM instead of GDDR5
- 64-bit connection
- Struggles with new games on anything higher then 1280x720 (Can't knock off an egg though because it's not a gaming card)
- No HDMI

Other Thoughts: Overall, this card is great for the price. Just like anything money buys, you get what you pay for. This is a $50 video card that isn't marketed for gamers. If you plan on doing some heavy gaming on this card, I suggest putting a bit more money into what you are getting. I have had no problems at all with this card after 6 months and I use it almost every day. This does handle games pretty decent at 720p. I play Cod4, MW2, Skyrim, and Fallout mostly on this card and it handles all these games with no problem. Below I will show you how the card handles the games that I play on it.

(I will play all these games at the 1280x720 Resolution)

Skyrim:
Low Settings 60FPS, Medium Settings 50 FPS, High 40FPS (w/o AA), and 25-30 on Ultra (w/o AA)

Fallout 3/New Vegas:
Low Settings 60FPS, Med Settings 60FPS, High 50FPS, Ultra 40FPS (All not playing with AA)

Call of Duty 4:
(Since there are no specified settings for the game, I'll just tell the frame rate with it maxed compared to low)
Low - 125 Steady FPS
Max - 50-60 FPS

In all honesty, I wish I would have saved my money and bought a better card. I saw a review about this card and it said it wasn't built right and I feel the same exact way. To get more in depth with that thought, just read his review. My advise is to save your money and get a better video card but if you are on tight budget, this will do.

1 out of 5 eggsThis is not built right

Pros: The price.

Cons: I'm not saying it won't work I"m saying it's not going to work well. This video card has a 64-bit connection to your computer. This means a Geforce 9800, which may have a slower clock speed, will spank this card. Why? see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Having a high clock speed on a graphics card is good but it must work well with the memory. If the card's memory bandwidth limits the capability of your card to communicate with the computer CPU the clock speed won't matter at all.

A real life example. I had a nvidia 250GTS which had 1GB GDDR3 RAM and a 256-bit bus connection. I had that thing for a long time. I ran skyrim on it at 1080p on high settings and above average frame rates. I went and bought a nvidia 560 card and replaced my 250 gts. I noticed a bad difference. Things weren't well in skyrim. Why? the nvidia 560 had a better clock speed and better RAM, it had 1 GB GDDR5. I took the 560 out and put the 250gts back in. Things were much better. The 250 GTS has a 256-bit bus connection and thus a higher bandwidth connection to the computer's CPU and the 560 had a 128-bit connection. In other words the 560 bottlenecked because of the 128-bit connection to the PCI-e slot.

This Galaxy card has a 64-bit connection.... (I'll let you finish that thought.)

4 out of 5 eggsGood for budget builds

Pros: -Decent power for the price ($65)
-Quiet fan
-2 GB DDR3

At first I felt like I was taking a risk on purchasing this card for my budget gaming PC, but after I got the system running I haven't had any problems with it at all. I've been running several games (on the lower end of graphics detail and intensity) 100% smoothly. I haven't tried higher settings yet.

Cons: None to report. Installation was very smooth and easy. Drivers from Nvidia worked as expected.

Other Thoughts: It's really not that powerful, granted that I fits my need perfectly. Recently released high-end games would not run well on this card. If you're thinking of buying a card with the hope that it would play pretty much anything you throw at it, this is not that card.
Despite the above, this card is a permissible purchase for any budget build, whether for gaming or for other things. I wager that this card could handle Adobe CS5 with considerable ease.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget GPU

Pros: ~ Small
~ Quiet
~ Stays cool
~ Plays modern games with good framerate
~ 2 GB Video Ram

Cons: ~ DDR3 RAM, with it was GDDR3 or GDDR5

Other Thoughts: I'm so sorry other people have had problems with this card. I use it in a budget gaming computer with a Pentium G860 3GHz and 4GB Ram. Below I will show framerate I experiance with the games I play.

Minecraft:
Vanilla Settings, Far Render Distance - Max 150, Min 80, Avg 110
Shader Mod, AA and A maxed out - Max 60, Min 30, Avg 45

Cod4:
Maxed Out Single Player- Max 60, Min 30, Avg 50
Maxed Out Multiplayer - Max 60, Min 25, Avg 25
Low Setting Multiplayer - Max 90, Min 40, Avg 60

Skyrim:
Medium Settings - Max 60 (Indoors), Min 28, Avg 35

Overall this card is a great buy. If you have a budget gaming rig I suggest this card.

2 out of 5 eggsthe 2gig fooled me

Pros: cheap, and it came with the system. So far it's quiet. Used it to play Minecraft and no probs.

Cons: Used it to play Vanguard. and has to be on absolute lowest graphical settings in order to get 40-50 FPS(when I say lowest, I mean going through and turning EVERYTHING down, even the far plane clip range to min.)

Other Thoughts: I wish I could get another card, but I got the 2 year extended warranty :(

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away

Pros: - Small Card
- 2 GB VRAM

Cons: - Runs very hot
- Fan is really loud
- Can hardly handle even the simplest games
- No HDMI
- Should be priced lower
- DOA when it first came in, had to exchange for another

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a low budget gaming rig for my little brother for Christmas. Really all he wanted to do was play Minecraft so I though this should do the job, I was ever so wrong. This thing has been a major pain. Even when he's playing a simple game like Minecraft this thing burns up and makes a bunch of noise. Stay away from this, even if you are just building for the simplest needs. I was forced to take it out in the worry that it would burn up my mobo. The card is now in it's rightful spot, the trash can. Now he's running on integrated until my new card I ordered comes in. I'd imagine you can buy an EVGA for the same price that'll perform way better than this. Although I know this isn't meant for playing games I'd imagine it'd be able to handle Minecraft. Great job with this card Galaxy, happy holidays!

Manufacturer Response:

I'm sorry to hear your new card did not meet your expectations. It sounds to me like there may have been something wrong with the fan, as I've tested this particular model before and never experienced any noise or heat problems even under the heaviest loads. As it just so happens, I play Minecraft as well and this card should have no difficulty in running it. Do you still have the card that we might offer a replacement and make things right?

Please contact me directly at andrew@galaxytechus.com if there's any possibility I can still be of service.

Thanks,

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Well, it's a video card and i needed one

Cons: It constantly overheats. Only when i play my games on minimum quality does it stay around 80 C.

Other Thoughts: It's a great video card but the aftermarket cooler sucks so be prepared to spend an extra 20-30 dollars for a 3rd party cooler.

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry to hear you're having heat problems with your card. The temps you're seeing are much higher than normal for this card, and should typically be around just 50C under the heaviest loads. We use the best cooling available to us when designing any GC edition graphics card, so aftermarket cooling should never be necessary to get excellent performance.

If you could please contact me right away at andrew@galaxytechus.com, I'll make sure you're taken care of and receive a prompt replacement if one is needed.

Thanks,

Andrew Fischer
