Pros: *Very cheap *Free, fast delivery *Runs very quietly, I can't even tell it's in there. *Plays even the latest expansion of WoW beautifully. I mostly idle at 75 fps.
Cons: *No instructions *Made by a company named "Sparkle" which may make you insecure of your masculinity
Overall Review: This was my first purchase from Newegg and my first major PC hardware purchase, and I couldn't've made a better choice. It's not loud, it didn't require a PSU upgrade (300W is the minimum) and it's simple to install. I have no regrets with this card.
Not bad but scary
Pros: A good pre-built for the price, runs relatively new games at playable settings
Cons: A few months ago when I started it, the PSU was making this weird, high-pitched noise. It stopped when I rebooted, but now it's making that noise constantly. Is this thing gonna combust? I've heard the PSU is really bad, so I'm not looking forward to it.
Overall Review: Oh man I hope this thing doesn't blow up OH MAN
Pros: No fan, really cheap, shipped fast, didn't need to upgrade PSU (300W) plays WoW WotLK at about 75 fps (depending on other components and your location in the game), at 1440x900, settings at high except for shadowing.
Cons: Heat sink blocks a PCI slot. Don't need it, really, but it's inconvenient. Doesn't run WoW PERFECTLY EVERYWHERE, which is what I wanted, but that's not the fault of the card.
Overall Review: This is my first GPU, it took a few minutes to install, especially since it's big, but that's just my inexperience. It's not terribly powerful, but a very good upgrade from integrated graphics.
