Excellent

according to price its much better than 1050ti, although 1050ti performance per watt is much better ... but for gaming experience there is a huge difference.


Poor

Had graphics issues/erros since I bought my PC many years ago and this card came with that pc.


Good

Good enough if you can power it and have the 6 + 8 pin cables. I have yet to test this card's temps and i bought the Nvidia version for $50 a month back.


Poor

I got this GPU and knew what Power it had. But with that crappy cooler and the powerdraw you can literaly cook on it. When you try to overclock it and set the fan to 100% you got an excellent heater. The card can`t even stay below 95 degrees. Also it sucks so much power that my 550W Powersupply wasn`t enough. Seriously buy a newer card, keep the GTX 480 as a legend on the shelf and not in your PC.
