Pros: Once we got it installed and running, its doing great on my old Dell Deminsion 8300. Thought it was time to get rid of it, but I think we can get some more time out of it thanks to this card. Needed it for World of Warcraft Cataclysm, fps still about 20 in stormwind but Im thinking the 1 gig of system ram i have right now is part of that problem. gonna upgrade that, ordering more tonight, hehe. Its definitly playable now tho, upgraded from an Nvidia 256mb fx5500 or 5800, cant remember now.
Cons: Ran into a problem when installing this card. After plugging it in and windows boots up, when it starts finding new hardware and loading drivers for them, it starts loading Microsoft UAA High Definition Audio Device and just hangs on that. CPU usage jumps to 100% and cant run anything. after a few reboots and and letting it sit for 30 minutes to see if anything loads, nothing was working. Well, after reading around a bit and asking on Yahoo Answers, someone responded, with old card installed,goto:
Right click on hdaudbus.sys
Rename to hdaudbus.old
After doing that, i reinstalled this new card, booted up, and no problems. up and running now. Since this card is an HD card, it wants to load HD audio drivers also for 1 cable output... im guessing it conflicted with my soundblaster or something.
