A nice, affordable low-spec video card. If you recently bought a new computer and are looking for a cheap upgrade, this is the card for you. I found it in a Canadian Tiger Direct for $75 in the bargain section. It comes with 256MB of VRAM, and DirectX10 support if you're running Windows Vista. On the downside, this is not a very powerful card; there are much more powerful, and expensive, cards on the market right now. Although, if you can get 2 of them, you can SLI them, but they'll only be as good as a mainstream (~$250-$300) card. Obviously, if you are looking for something to play the newest, most hardware intensive games, then this is definately not the card for you. However, this can still play a wide range of older games; it can play any Source engine game (ie: Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Portal, etc) at medium to high graphic settings, but that also depends on your CPU and the amount of RAM you have. Overall, this is a good enough graphics card to get you through everyday tasks and even play a few of the newer games, but if you're a serious gamer and want a powerful graphics card, then you're better off looking elseware.
