Good card at a great price

on 7/26/2008

Installation went smoothly on a Dell XPS Gen 4. This card takes up a single PCI Express x16 slot. It allows me to play high end games such as Mass Effect which demands at least DirectX 9 compatability. Card has probably extended the life of my PC by at least a year. Price was a factor of 2 lower than competitive cards.

Been almost a Year, great card for the price !

by Michael M. on 11/12/2008

I built my machine almost a year ago,I've been running this card CrossFireX On a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core +6000 with 4GB Corsair XMS2 XTREME PC2-6400 800Mhz 240-pin DDR2 Memory. Every game I've played Including Crysis, Far Cry 2, UT3 and CoD4 run in Extreme mode. Graphics are unbelievable. For the Price You can't beat this card. And I recommend this card to everyone I know.
