Not sure about this one... - Advantages: Fairly powerful card., Available for a reasonable price., Runs Far Cry pretty well now that I finally got it to work! - Disadvantages: I would recommend having a 400 volt PSU as the card can be temperamental with lower rated PSUs and needs a consistent supply., Seems prone to overheating., Many people have reported trouble with the card on forums I have frequented. I would not recommend the card if you are a layman when it comes to PCs.
