This is a great graphics card. It's not the greatest in existence by any means, but for the price you can't beat it. I bought it to run The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion on my computer and in my opinion it looks much better than the XBox 360 version of the game, and it's all thanks to this product. Even the games and other graphical applications I was already using look completely new now. Highly recommended for budget gamers or anyone who appreciates a great deal.
