XFX HD-465X-ZDF2 Radeon HD 4650 1GB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Wow is this thing reliable! I've been using it for about 2 years at this point. I just realized today that the fan isn't working and possibly hasn't been working for about a year now. While that sounds like a mark against the card, think about this for just a second. I've played Crysis, Skyrim, all 3 Mass Effects, Left 4 Dead, and recently Arkham Asylum WITHOUT THE FAN WORKING. No, I haven't had anything running at the max settings, but I haven't turned graphics down by much. According to my GPU Meter gadget (in Windows 7), when I exited Arkham Asylum this morning the GPU core temp was at 180 F and it was still running strong. The only time I've had a video crash (and I think it was driver related) was playing Crysis. This card is the AK-47 of video cards, it may not be the prettiest and it may not do the shiniest stuff, but doggone it, it will KEEP WORKING!

Cons: The only problem I've had is that the fan died after about a year, but that may be as much my fault for being a bit of a moron and setting the fan to run at 100% all the time. Oops...

Yes, it does get kind of hot, especially now that it's only being passively cooled by the fans on the side of my case, but that's to be expected.
