Pros Runs great on my 5 yr old computer.
Easy to install.
Didn't have to upgrade my power supply
Cons Not good for newer games or a new computer.
Takes over your sound, so you have to go in and reset it back to the original sound card.
Summary OK, I bought this card before reading other reviews that say it is not a gaming card. However, I am still happy with it. I have a 5 year old computer with a Celeron D processor, 2Gigs of RAM, and a 60gig HD. I needed to step up from my onboard card, and I wanted to be sure I would NOT have to buy a new power supply. So, I saw the 4350 on sale at Best Buy, normally $85...on sale for $55, so I bought it.
Pretty easy to install, just pushes into the ATI Xpress16 slot, no wiring to hook up because it gets its power from the rail. Then you uninstall the old video cards drivers, and hook up your monitor to the new card. It will be in a very LOW graphcs setting mode at this time, but all you need to do, is get on the internet and upload the newest drivers for the card from the ATI Website. Do NOT install the drivers from the CD that came with it.
If you have a new computer or want to run very graphic intensive games, this is not going to be the card for you. But with my 5yr old computer, it works great...I doubled my normal FPS in WoW. From 30fps on lowest settings with the old card, to 60fps+ with this one on medium graphics settings
. I have overclocked it a good bit, which is actually easy to do with RivaTuner software. Some people say this is not a good thing to do, however I have not had any problems with it being overclocked and I've had the card for about 3-4 months now and the temps on the card are the same whether its overclocked or not and only increase 2-3 degrees when playing WoW.
So, in conclusion....IF, like me, you have an older computer and just want to upgrade the graphics card, but aren't worried about playing high end games....its a great card in my opinion
Almost forgot, the one "bad" thing about it, when you install the drivers, it also takes over your sound, so you have to go into your settings and reset your sound back to the original sound card. Not hard to do, but kind of annoying if you don't know what's going on.
