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

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).

Built on the Terascale architecture it was the first AMD which supported the DirectX 11 API. Launched on 2009 this GPU shows its age when used in modern titles, the lack of support from the manufacturer and game developers have done gaming on this GPU a really bad time. I'll say that the 1GB model is a big NO while the rare 2GB one may perfom better. Any way, take in account this GPU will require a 600W PSU if you don't want to run in problems, if you're thinking in this GPU as an upgrade note that a GT 1030 (30W) or even a GTX 750 1GB (75W) model will deliver higher perfomance with a fraction of the power draw (160W) and also a bigger case is required.
