However, the heat sink's fan is very loud and annoying.
1GB of memory is perfect for today's games, can't say anything about next week's though. :P
SLI supported, but I didn't take advantage of it. (My mobo doesn't support it.)
Has digital 3D capabilities, but you'll need extra equipment. Supports traditional (ie. red/blue) 3D as well.
Overall a good card, just a lousy fan.
If you want to spend a few extra $, try to find a 9800GT (or GTX) with a quieter heat sink.
EDIT: According to these reviews, this thing has a very quiet heat sink...so maybe I just got a defectively loud unit.
It worked out of the box after BIOS adjustments were made to disable the integrated graphics. The system update function of Windows 7 got the drivers I needed. The included driver CD and the support web site for this card are a big problem but I didn't need them.
If you are considering adding a dedicated graphics card to your existing "integrated graphics" desktop then you should read the remainder of my review. I will keep it as short as possible. Also, if you have been researching then you know that Dell, HP or most brands of PC with a dedicated graphics card run $600 to $1,000. So this card can be a bargain investment for many people that extends the useful life of the PC they have now.
Note that the card manufacturer and most modern graphics cards' manufacturers "recommend" a 400 watt or greater power supply. It is likely that if your PC was purchased off-the-shelf with integrated graphics then your power supply might be 300 watts or less.
My point is that when I say my new card ($79.Read more ›
As for the GPU, a nice budget but powerful card... works great for my desktop. Product page does not mention it comes with an HDMI connection... which is a pretty nice feature for this card. I'm happy with the purchase.
That said, the actual card was a steal on Amazon, though it took them a million years to ship it, and seems to be functioning. I can play my games without fuss (or crashing like my previous card was doing) and it's handled everything I've thrown at it so far. Only been a week and a half, though, so I don't know how well it does over time. Just make sure you have a capable PSU before buying. I know someone who's made that mistake before. Seems to do all right with cooling. Haven't had any heat problems.
Has my recommendation, but you're on your own with the install. Fair warning.
Out of the box you should be able to max:
assassins creed games
any source engine games (portal 2, l4d2, ect)
Need for speed
Fallout 3 and New Vegas
Alice madness returns
Battlefield Bad company 2
If your willing to do some overclocking you will also be able to max:
Dead Rising 2
And many more.
Overall its a great value for anyone who wants a high level graphics card with a low price tag.

Back in the day this thing was made in like 2006 I think and it was practically meant for the 2008 I think game Crysis. This thing was a powerhouse.Published 19 months ago by Johnny Two-Shots
great for the time, but like all computer stuff, the industry has almost certainly moved beyond it by now...I would imagine, anyway.Published on March 22, 2014 by Daryl Wayne
