Still a good card in 2014
By Ethan Goethal
For the age this card still competes against many gaming cards(mainly the midrange today)
For 45$ you can have a better card than most 100~$ cards today.
Has some slight driver issues(easy to fix if you google it, other people have this card too).
Card can get a little hot, for some reason the fan doesn't adjust it's self right/appropriately, I reccomend Afterburner, then where it says fan speed set it to auto, then user define(it will automatically get you a good setting for your fan speed to adjust w/appropriate temps)

It's a older card so it plays older games great not so much for new ones...
Not bad...runs games 2010 and older like a dream but it won't touch some of the newer games ac black flag only ran at 14fps but it did play others decent crysis 2 1080p on ultra with medium shadow and no AA ran at 25-30fps....honestly it's a amazing card for beginners it overclocks well its cheap and it's not a total P.O.S. but if ur looking for something to play the latest games on at least medium I'd just save and get a nvidia 740 or 750 or the ati r7 250x or r7 260x

This thing is massive!!!!!!!
I have a Nvidia Quadro FX card in my machine now. But either it has died or my motherboard has. So I ordered this to rebuild my machine to what I want. First. This thing is massive. I knew it was big when I ordered it. But it's much bigger than you'd ever imagine unless you're used to installing large video cards of this size. My old Nvidia card is soooo much smaller than this. To me it's the Godzilla of video cards on sheer size. There are faster, and more expensive. I could have bought a smaller cheaper card for $30. But I like things over the top. I was suprised that it did come with the output/crossfire connectors as shown in the pics. No it doesn't come with power connectors. But those are cheap. Drivers can easily be found through google. I would as someone else here already said go into the setup and alter the fan setup. Seems like that's the drawback with this card from all the reviews I've read. I'm still waiting on a motherboard/processor for my build. But if this thing works then I'll be super happy. Really is a nice card. And again massive. Make sure you measure and make sure you can fit it before you order. I think it's 10.5" long or so.
I'll be honest I think some of the problems some people are having with this card are easy fixes, that people don't want to have to think through. If you're someone who's willing to put in a little effort to save alot of $ for a kickass card. Then I think this is a steal.
Just ordered a second. Think I'm going to Crossfire them.
