Other Thoughts: This is a wonderful card that brought all new life to my mid ranged pc. I was hoping to upgrade without building a whole new computer and this did the trick. Its running all my games on max with 8xAA and everything I can throw at it.
I mainly wanted this card because of the lower PSU requirement and the built in power management features, I only have a 430w psu and although this card says it requires 450 it works just fine. I paired it up with my 3ghz dual core which I also hope to upgrade in the near future and it runs all my games over 30fps, some of them even 60fps with vsync on.
It got an 830 score in heaven benchmark with tesselation turned on, it runs crysis 2 decently, although I tweaked it a bit to turn that awful motion blur and glow off. It finally beats the dreaded dalaran lag in WoW, always over 40fps in that city now, and it maxes out crysis 1 on all settings and runs 50-60fps, simply amazing for a cheap card such as this.
Pros: -It Works!
Cons: -Very Cheap
-Flimsy and Sharp Metal
Other Thoughts: I needed to build a pc for a friend as cheap as possible so I got this PSU included. My biggest worry was the PSU, but surprisingly it actually works. The wires where a little short though, I had trouble putting on zip ties without covering any fans.
The metal inside was also very loose, it bent easily and the hard drive mount wouldn't stay in place, but I put in all 4 screws and it became pretty solid.
For anyone planning to get this case I would recommend switching the PSU for an antec or anything better, but if you need something cheap like I did, it seems to work just fine on its own, at least nothings burned out or surged yet.

Cons: -Nothing Major
Other Thoughts: It was a neat little mod for under 10 bucks, but it didn't really work well with my mid tower. I bought it hoping to stick it up on the back panel but there was no room, the only spot I could stick it was on the bottom under my video card and it only lit up the bottom half of my case from there.
Its a great product just make sure you have a spot to stick it before you buy it. It also seems a little warm after a wile, I'm afraid to leave the thing on all the time, I'll only turn it on to show friends I guess.
It also adds a lot of new wires on the inside of my case, I'm going to have to re-ziptie everything eventually.
