Other Thoughts: I needed an inexpensive card to replace my dead 9800GT to simply get back up and running. I picked up the 210 due to it's price point., but I also wanted the ability to play some old school games on top of my basic computer needs.
While this is no true gaming card, it can handle a little bit of a load. I tried pushing its limits with some demos on Steam, and at low to medium settings with about 25 to 30 fps average, it managed to run...
Kayne and Lynch: Dog Days
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
My guess it could probably run most things made before 2008 with a little graphical sacrifice, and even some modern ones as long as you don't require silky-smooth FPS. Definitely not an enthusiast's card in the slightest (you'd kill it with Battlefield IMHO), but it's powerful enough for some casual time-wasting on a low-end rig.
