Pros: Good card for the price. Low profile. Takes up very little space. 2Gigs. Nice fan that doesn't require an extra power cable. Plenty of adjustable settings in the Catalyst control panel.

Cons: Had to download display drivers for Vista from the AMD site.

Other Thoughts: Got this card to replace an old outdated Nvidia card. I installed it without any trouble. Went to install the software from the disk and the display drivers didn't DL. So my system didn't read the card. I have Windows Vista so I double checked to make sure it was supported by the card. Right on the box it says Windows Vista. Along with XP, 7, 8, etc.

So I figured maybe the disk had bad drivers. I went to the Asus site to DL new drivers. They had them for everything but Vista. Same with a couple other sites. No go. So I went to AMD and DLed the display drivers for Vista and viola! Card works fine.

So if you're buying this card and have Vista, don't even bother DLing the drivers from the disk. Go right to AMD and get them. Save yourself the headache of the dreaded Code 10 error. Just DL the other programs like GPU Tweak from the disk. It allows you to DL them without having to DL the drivers.

Other than that minor glitch the card works great and I would recommend it as an upgrade to outdated cards.
