1 out of 5 eggsGood as long as your not playing games?

Pros: Awesome card the minute it lasted before it crashes.

Cons: Anything that put any sort of stress on this card caused it to black screen my computer. Even when trying to benchmark it and performing stability tests it crashed.
Only way to fix this was by restarting my computer. Everything I tried had no affect on it.

The card also had a high temperature when only Idling.
It was in the range of 65-70c.
Only with the use of Riva tuner was I able to bring the temp. down.

Overall I had a terrible experience with this card.

I'd advise everyone to just throw down an extra 20 dollars or so and get a more popular brand like XFX or EVGA.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Cheap card, installed easily and showed a drastic improvement over my geforce 8400.

Cons: Not as big of an upgrade as I was expecting- I only play WoW anymore, and while I was able to max out the graphics settings and increase to my monitor's max resolution, the FPS still drops into the 20's sometimes... I wouldn't expect the card to have problems with a 4 year old game.

Also had a problem with the graphics driver- I changed my resolution on the monitor, but instead of checking to make sure what my monitor could support, I just tried to remember. Turned out it wasn't a supported format- and instead of switching back after 15 seconds like every other display adapter I've ever had, it stayed the same. Had to reboot in safe-mode and uninstall the card to start over.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've always been anti-GeForce and all about Radeon video cards its not even funny. About a month ago I rebuilt my PC, and bought the GTS 250 and I have been very pleased! Runs all of my games very well and very smooth.

Cons: No Cons yet but if I had to say something I'd say that its huge!
