I bought this card to SLI my Motherboard so I can have 2 cards for gaming. I was disappointed that it didn't fit my "older" motherboard. mostly my Motherboard's (ASUS P5Ne-SLI" fault. Guess they didn't expect video cards to get so huge. Anyway, reason it didn't fit was the SATA cables for the HD's were right in the way so card wouldn't fit. I ended up having to cut off a small part of the Video Card's plastic cover. I know this voided warranty, so I did it to my OLDER card which I had for over one year already. I just hated looking at this card for 3 months without having it in my system. All works good, and I don't know why I didn't doctor it sooner.
For reference, I have a low-end gaming desktop with a 2008-era Pentium Dual-core, and I felt that this card was a good match for the time being. On a 1680x1050 monitor, the card runs relatively less demanding games (e.g. Dragon Age, Unreal Engine 3 games, Source Engine games, Skyrim) with high graphic settings like a dream. More demanding games (e.g. FEAR 3, Saints Row 3) run reasonably proficiently at a lower resolution.
Bought this card for a budget gaming rig and am more than pleased with the results. Got Just Cause 2 and Batman A.C. for free which was a great bonus. Have had no problems with the card and have yet to find a game that won't give me great frame rates!
