Great card for the price, easy to install, fairly large, is quiet, has lasted a while, installing drivers and usage never posed a single problem. Fan barely even has to run. This is also being used on a 300w PSU that's probably generic as I put it on a pre-made computer I bought a while back, so it'll work on 300w+ PSUs without a doubt!
Size may prove to be an issue in towers below mid or certain MoBos, but it was fine with me.
I've hard this card for over a year now and it hasn't given me a single issue. Some background on its use:
- Has played some games such as Amnesia, Portal, Portal 2, L4D2 and many more on max with no lag or any issues. Amnesia on max settings looked AMAZING on this card.
- Probably won't run newer games well. I could only run MW2 on med. settings, depending on resolution. I could go for max, but some low FPS was noticeable. It probably goes without saying that newer games with have lower FPS, but you can't expect this thing to have too much power either. I won't knock off an egg simply because it's performing the way it was meant to, no better and no worse. Anyone knocking eggs for that is just being unfair. This isn't a high-end GPU, but it works well enough to play some more common and older games on max settings. TF2 also works perfectly fine on Max for me.
- CD installation? I really hope people know better than to install drivers from the CD. I went straight to the website the day I bought this/the day before it arrived (it arrived next day. At the time I got this, I happened to live a few cities away from one of the warehouses, so paying for faster shipping was meaningless as I'd get it the next day anyway. Hooray!) and downloaded (NOT installed... yet) the drivers for this. When this GPU arrived, I uninstalled the old drivers, left the new drivers on my desktop for quick and easy installation and installed after removing my old card (Radeon HD 5450. This 7750 must be about 2.5x the size of the 5450?) and everything worked perfectly. A year later, I haven't faced a single issue. Seriously.
In conclusion, this isn't the GREATEST GPU, but casual gamers may find it to their liking. As for Sapphire, the quality of this GPU hasn't disappointed me as well as its functionality. Because of this, Sapphire so far has earned my trust. In a few more weeks, I will be upgrading my GPU to another Sapphire card (7870 GHz edition for anyone curious) and am hoping it doesn't disappoint me like this one hasn't. So again, for anyone having issues, try getting drivers from Sapphire's website instead. They will most likely be updated drivers, which is what you want unless you want to risk possibly facing all sorts of glitches.
