I purchased this graphics card after I updated my motherboard (Asus P5Q) I updated from an FX 5200 to the XFX 9600. First thing I noticed when I took it out the box was the size..its a big heavy card. Included in the package is an HDTV cable so you can have your TV as a second monitor, S-Video Cable, DVI-to-VGA Adapters and Power Connector to connect to your motherboard.
It looks like it can do the business and it does. It runs anything I can throw at it on maximum resoloution (2560 x 1600).
I researched for days on which card to buy, and finally settled on this card because of the price - at $59.99 you can't beat it, it has the power to handle the stuff that the higher end cards can handle without the extortionate prices. I read a lot of reviews on the card, some people were saying the fan is to loud, I haven't found that..I'd rather hear the fan than not hear it..you've got problems if you can't hear it...but your system would tell you if something was wrong. As I said the card is big they all are nowdays and will probably take up an extra slot in some motherboards.
Overall this card is a great buy, I would of bought 2 to have in SLI but my motherboard doesn't support SLI (only have 1 PCI Express 2.0 slot). Its a pretty power hungry card but most cards nowdays are..I'd say to have at least a 500 watt power supply so you don't have any problems. All in all I an very happy with this card and would definately buy this card again.
