You can get this card from anywhere from 20 to 35$ after MIR making it definitely the best bang for the buck video card in a budget PC. ANyone getting integrated graphics should spend the few extra $$$ for this!
Good price useful video card, The motherboard I got doesn't have monitor support so have get one for the assembly, so pick it up for temper use, do it work and make time for me to serch and wait for a good one for CAD.
This card is OK but it manages to crash the X11 window compositor daily. It Ubuntu 11.04 running unity this crash occurred upto 3 times a day. Running Xubuntu with XFCE desktop environment I'm experiencing 1 crash every two days.
Card seems to be working well so far. For the price, I can't complain! Plays tons of older games just fine. Also plays newer games on low or medium with exceptional framerates. (And that's what matters)
This is a really good bang for the buck card if you are looking for a cheap htpc/lite gaming card. For htpc situation this card is perfect as the hsf whispers at auto fan speed. For gaming, I was able to do extreme settings for starcraft 2 i 1440x900 with 30 fps with e6500i3.7ghz 4gb ram, which is amazing for a budget card like this! But after an hour of playing I will start to get artifacts and sometimes bsod like others have mentioned. It is not entirely unfixable, the card is just not properly cooled and there is no ram sinks to cool the rams which often is the cause of artifact. By cranking the fan speed to max helps getting rid of the artifact and the noise is bare able while gaming. I am sure adding a aftermarket cooler would solve bosd problem on my card and yield some more performance by ocing it. For me spending another 30 dollars on a 30 dollars card is just silly, your better off with those bfg gts 250 they had for sale couple of weeks ago.
I bought this card hoping it would last me at least a year before it died out. With in 2 weeks it started to blue screen and randomly crash. I purchased it in April. Right now I have it RMA with XFX, and waiting for them to test the sucker before sending me a new one. I know my psu is acquit and my system meets it. I guess there a reason why they're on sale atm. Buyer defiantly beware with these hunks of junk.

This card is great for the price. Perfect for an average user who needs to take the load off CPU or who needs expansion ports for video output. Perfect for HTPC/Desktop, but not for dedicated HTPC. Double wide is OK, but can be trouble.
Packaging is fantastic. Building quality is good, but metal a bit thin for me.
