      Disadvantages

      Good for it's money, but there is better.

      I bought this card for a now aging machine of mine that just needed a little bit more kick in it for gaming. The rest of the machine runs really well, a 3200+ 64 bit AMD chip, couple of gig of ram and a decent hard drive, so this card seemed to fit the bill.

      The particular game in question was Command and Conquer 3, and suffice to say that it allows the machine to run the game on at least medium/high settings in all areas, which compared to the low settings I could run under my old 128mb card was a definite step forwards.

      The video output (DVI) may not be everyone's first choice as most monitor's still come as standard with VGA connections, but the card does come with an adaptor switch to allow you to run a VGA monitor from it which doesn't seem to affect the video output any.

      As with most cards from this manufacturer there is a software suite available to help fine tune the graphics display but frankly I advise against it. It seems to be a bit of a resource hog so unless you're particularly fussy it's perhaps not worth putting on.
