NOISY!! 8/28/2019 9:46:21 AM

Pros: it may cool the CPU

Cons: VERY VERY VERY Noisy!! Do Not Buy.

Overall Review: Not recommended unless your PC is located 2-3 rooms away from where you use it. So you will need some long cables.

Still "works" after more than 4 years of ownership, but overheats even when not playing games. 1/29/2019 5:09:28 PM

Pros: Can render pretty good graphics at least to 1080p @ 60Hz in my testing.
Easy to install drivers, even from simple windows driver directory dumps.
Fans do alot to cool the card, but not enough...
Plays some of my favorites like half-life 1, counter-strike 1.6, and freelancer flawlessly.

Cons: Overheats constantly, even possibly causing other system part heating.
Fans need to be run at 100% to have any hope of gaming anything past half-life 1 or freelancer on this thing, and though fans do a good enough job at cooling (compared to the inaudiable 45% I typically use when operating the desktop), it is not enough to run most modern games for more than 10-20 minutes. Even the sims 4 will overheat the card.
Can play Oblivion and Fallout 3 with fans cranked up, but there is a risk of overheating and system crash.
Overheating causes immediate complete system crash-to-shutdown, loss of progress and work.
Card will frequently run dangerously close to hysteresis even with fans at 100% in games like fallout 4, without turning down visual tuning including lowering res.

Overall Review: I think the overheating is a heatsink mounting issue, possibly with bad or too little paste, a bad interface to the die, or some other non-chip related defect.
There are no visual artifacts with the board, but as exspected, it will start to stutter a bit when overheating.
If you are planning on using this card, watch out for defects, including the one that causes mine to overheat.
Card can render most mid-range games playably with their graphics settings cranked up.

Great budget card 7/30/2018 7:17:56 AM

Pros: Able to run today's games on low to medium.
I'm still using this one in 2018.
Price.

Cons: Can not handle cranked up graphics.
Normally have to drop resolution and setting to get acceptable frame rate for gaming.
Hard to find this one in stock anymore.

Overall Review: I'd recommend getting something more up to date.

It's been a great card 10/15/2017 9:40:54 PM

Pros: -pretty quiet -pretty cool (gpu temp-wise) -pretty cool to get a high tier 2nd or 3rd generation card for around $ 115 usd in early 2014 - pretty powerful card in it's time (2nd from the top in 2010?) -pretty solid card
-could still run many 2015-2017 games at playable settings but you might as well go for a newer card with similar spec and your a much lower electricity bill.

Cons: -in 2017 it's outdated
-in 2014 a fantastic value
-in 2010 whoa what a card!
It is an electricity hog.

Overall Review: In 2014 $114 was a bargain for this card. I'm glad I bought it.

I briefly crypto-mined, gamed and run BOINC projects with this card. It has performed well in all cases. It's a big 5th? (help me out here) generation top tier card that was solid.

This is a great card if you can find it cheap and in good shape and are aware of it's power and size requirements.

Best Graphics card for the price 3/26/2017 10:23:31 AM

Pros: This graphics card can run all the games i like such as world of tanks, world of warcraft,rust,dayz on max settings had no problem with it had it for around 2 years now and it is still working good doesn't seem to put much heat off i have a 750 watt power supply so if you dont follow what it ask for you could end up having problems needs atleast 600 watt power supply dont try and use it on a lower one it will burn out as i have heard but the card is great if you want a cheap graphics card thats amazing for its price

Cons: the only con for this graphics card is that it must have 550 power supply minimum i would just with a 750 watt like i did to be safe no use in risking it but it works great.

Overall Review: most people dont understand that you need to maintenance your computer blow it out at least once a year to keep dust from building up in the graphics card that will cause it to heat up and burn out along with other components just be careful when doing this you could break something if your not careful

Was great while it lasted. 12/7/2016 5:39:20 PM

Pros: Was able to play a lot of my games on highest graphics settings.

Cons: Only lasted a few months then burned out. Not sure what happened. Worked one day then quit working the next, at first thought I didn't have a large enough power supply but when I bought a better one still wouldn't work.

Overall Review: DO NOT BUY. Not worth the headache.

Unsung hero 7/15/2016 11:57:14 AM

Pros: This video card can still get it done with moderate GPU demands; this little card is a warrior and will surprise you, considering its price and it's mere 2GB dedicated VRAM.

Cons: It's not indestructible, and does have its limitations. For the price though, it's a workhorse.
