Pros: I would say this is an overall ok card. It will run a lot of modern games on medium and somewhat high settings with about 30-40 fps average, now that may be considered unplayable but medium on most modern games will get about 40-60 fps. I ran Call of Duty Ghosts with this exact card on about medium-high settings and got a playable 40 fps. This card uses Nvidia's GK208 GPU not the GK107 GPU. It has a memory bandwidth of 40.1 GB/s not 80 GB/s which is featured on the OEM GK107 GT 640 GDDR5. The G/Texels are pretty low and the Fill rate is also pretty low. This card is inferior to the AMD Radeon HD 7750 GDDR5 with a 128-bit bus. This card has 64-bit bus which is sad because even though its GDDR5 it equals 128-bit DDR3 which is on the older GT 640. Minecraft runs great on this card with fully maxed out settings. I had adaptive v-sync on so i got a constant 60 fps while playing Minecraft which is enjoyable for me. The Radeon HD 7750 GDDR5 128-bit is a much better choice if u want more fps.

Cons: This card does NOT equal the GeForce GTX 650 due to its 64-bit bus width even though it has GDDR5. It is merely just merely an increase compared to the 128-bit bus width of the DDR3 version of this card. I can't really think of any other cons right now other than that it kind of kills the point of having GDDR5 if they are going to stitch a 64-bit bus width to it. I guess if it had GDDR5 128-bit it would be the exact same as the GTX 650 which i couldn't get because i had no PCI-E power connector and so they wouldn't be able to sell a lot of GTX 650's if this card came with 128-bit lol. Kind of sucks that AMD has the be card for people in situations like me. I was just testing this card hoping it would beat the HD 7750 but nope.

Other Thoughts: I guess i should have went with the HD 7750. I would recommend this card ONLY, ONLY!!! If u need specific NVIDIA features like PhysX or CUDA or other things like that. If u want the best performance for old pcs with no PCI-E power connectors like me HD 7750 GDDR5 128-bit is the best choice.
