I brought it for £7 on ebay and it performs better than a gt 730 , a great card for the money

Unbelievable frame rate when I tested it in Cinebench r15 for about 41 fps with my i5-4460 CPU. However it's too old to play games in 2020 since my GPU has only 512MB. Considering upgrade to GTX 1060 as well.
