I have always stuck with NVIDIA cards for good reason. The purchase of this graphics card cements my decision.
The performance of this card, for the price is excellent. Although it isn't amongst the top end cards on the market, being able to get it at such low prices is a bargain. I would have expected this card, based on how it rendered graphics, to cost around £80, but at half that price I am astounded.
As with all cards, the NVIDIA installed pretty easily and I noticed no difference to any of their other standard ones.
The main issue I have with this card however is the noise. The performance it has makes it get warm and therefore the fan is generally on pretty fast leading to excess noise.
I did noticed an artefact or two over months of usage but this is to be expected and therefore it does appear pretty reliable - or at least as reliable as any other card.
