For the price (around 15 usd), this gpu is unbeatable running CSGO at 120 frames at medium 1080p and good performance on most titles on minimum settings. The 1gb of vram is the real bottleneck here but i can see the 2gb version still being usable. This card is alright for most less demanding titles on lower settings but as for anything remotely new it falls short. It would be smarter to pour in the extra 30 bucks and buy an r9 280 or something in that range.

Compatible with macs and powerful enough to run some games at low settings.


Poor

My club3D blower style version just gradually broke down over a 5 year period. This was a seller replacement of my defective 5870 XFX version after a single week.
