Final Breakdown

Installation:

Plug and go; just remember to grab the updated drivers.

Price:

For the price, a card that can push 32-bit like this is great.

Performance/Features:

The loss of one star here is due to the lack of hardware T&L, something vital in modern cards, as well as the lack of overclocking capability.

Overall:

A solid buy, definitely giving the MX a hard run at the value crown -- It's a new GU Award winner!

Pluses (+)
  • Powerful performance from a value card

  • Minuses (-)
  • No Hardware T&L

  • Doesn't like being overclocked.
