Most helpful reviews

Mike, Manchester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I bought this as to get an equivalent nvidia would have cost up to £80.00 more.
Don't be fooled by the fact that it only has 1GB of on board memory, performance wise this beats the nvidia 650 2GB and can compete with the 660.
Installation wise, you probably will need to update the drivers from the AMD prior to actually running this at full capacity but this card can run Aliens: Colonial Marines (released feb 2012) at full quality.
Bad points:
The software that comes with it (the Catalyst Control Panel) is'nt that easy to use but you should'nt need to use it.
Standard power supplies wont run it, it is a bit power hungry, I would only recommend this if you have a 500+ Watt PSU.

Handles my son's gaming needs.
Bad points:
Very noisy whenthe fan is in auto mode. We had a lot of problems with the most up to date drivers but the ones on the enclosed disc worked well.
