Gets the job done. Pretty fast for a 10 year old graphics card.


Excellent

Today, of course, it is an old card. But if you get one for free, and you are not a heavy player (but watch video, etc.), it still does pretty much everything you need. Can You Run It! said that a certain video game (Battletech) would not run on this card at all. It did (and wasn't even terrible).
