Released November, 2009
The Pros:Runs pretty much all Source games on high settings. Highly affordable compared to most dedicated video cards. Very compact form factor, fits slimline cases and opens space for routing or other components.
The Cons:On-board drivers incompatible with Windows 7 Ultimate. VGA output image quality not as good as many other video cards. Fan is louder than expected for its size.
