This card is f****** slow damnit


Average

17 months ago.

I used this as my graphics card from 2011 until 2017. It played countless hours of Diablo II, Halo, Age of Empires, Kings and Mythology, Fallout 3, and flight simulators. It never ran anything particularly well but most games were playable at 800x600 or 1024x768 and moderate settings. Now days its just too old to really be considered, and driver support for modern titles has ceased. If you need a graphics adaptor for a chip without onboard graphics (some AMD Ryzen and Intel chips) then it's handy to have around, otherwise you are much better off with a more modern alternative like a GT 710 or 730 if you are budget constrained.

Poor

It's not really useful now in 2017, It's too old and has too lower performance
