If You Refuse To Pay The Inflated Prices For a Graphic Card, This APU Works Quite Well!

AMD Ryzen 7 5700G - Ryzen 7 5000 G-Series Cezanne (Zen 3) 8-Core 3.8 GHz Socket AM4 65W AMD Radeon Graphics Desktop Processor - 100-100000263BOX

Pros: Great support from AMD Tech

Overall Review: Performance is really great for an APU. It does a good job with Forza 4...decent frame rates around 40fs. I do not have any AAA games, so this APU will suffice until the graphics cards get down to a reasonable price. I had an issue getting it to work properly on my Asus B550 MB, not the fault of the APU. AMD Support was rapid and effective at resolving the problem. Turned out to be a driver issue on the MB.

It Works!

Pros: The card's size IS 9.5 inches long..NOT the 10.5 inches claimed by GOAT. He may have either an older version or the 9800 GTX+ in the 512mb size..which is 10.5 inches long.

Cons: It was not free

Overall Review: Forgot to mention that the monitor in the system is an ACER 22" at 1680x1050 DVI input.

Pros: Quite a substantial card, but I had NO problems installing it in my Thermatake LANBOX Lite case on my ASUS micro ATX board. Runs 37c at idle and 51c when flying the F18 on FSX. Got up to 55fps with the MKZBenchmark. Did not use the drivers from the included CD, went to the EVGA website and downloaded the current version. Fan exhausts air out of the grille on the mounting bracket and is fairly quiet. Only one 6 pin PCI conection required. Overall, an excellant card if your budget and/or space will not accomodate the newer more expensive and larger cards. EVGA's lifetime warranty is a big plus, also.

Cons: None, as of yet.
