Great card. It works well for what I wanted it to do. On my computer(intel e6750, 2 gigs ram, ASUS p5n-e board) it plays games great. A great card for the price, can't go wrong.

No need for a PCI-E power connector, which is nice for older power supplies. Good performer for the price. I'm getting an average FPS of 30 on Company of Heroes with every settings at "high" displaying 1650x1080. Plus, scoring 4660 on 3DMark06 with my Athlon x2 4600+, 2x1GB OCZ Platinum PC-6400 and 2-drives RAID (no OC'ing).

Fan is noisy (well, too much for me), so I just ordered myself a Thermalright HR-03 to cool it the passive way. At 100$ (after mail-in rebate) it's a great deal!

This is definitely a great card for the price it is. Will get you up and running for all of todays games and tommorows directx10 games. If your a hard core gamer or want to play recent games with max settings at very high resolutions, and want a playable frame rate you will want to go a couple of steps up from this card. I would definitely advise the 8800 gts minimum if you want good performance on all settings maxed (AA, filters etc.) on max resolution. This is basically an entry level gaming card by todays standards.
