Expert Review

Although this card isn’t as nice as the Radeon HD 4350 from HIS, it's also less expensive. Much like the 4350, this card supports DirectX 10.1. If you're looking to play a game from around the mid 2000s, this card is probably going to run it just fine. Anything that requires newer functions in DirectX 11, however, is definitely going to have a hard time with this card or simply not work at all.

Both this and the 4350 from HIS have 512MB of memory, but this one has DDR2 RAM instead of DDR3. DDR2 is older. The performance isn't as good as DDR3 RAM, but you probably won't notice much difference unless you're pushing this card to its limit. This card works fine if you're just looking to navigate the Internet and use some basic software to create spreadsheets or text documents. It has a D-SUB port and a DVI port, but no HDMI connection, and includes dual-monitor support.Rating: 4.75/5
