"Works well then fan noise starts"2.5 starson by PaulReagan0
Pros: A great card for the non gamer. Fast and cheap..
Cons: ...until the fan noise starts. And drones on and on until you replace it. Which is why I'm here at CNET again reading the reviews.
Summary: you could get lucky. You're probably becoming fan / heat sink savy by now if you are putting your own cards into your machine. The fans usually give out before the card does.
