In any game forum, you find mid and high end card owners exchanging FPS from their favorite games, installing memory modules that cost as much as an entire low cost system, or 3DMark scores that you may find alien to you. Well, it is because you are a computer user who is not into gaming, or not as enthusiastic about it. It has no bearing on your PC knowledge; likely you may well be a successful manager who is extremely good at what you do in data analysis, marketing and sales presentation etc.

Today, we are looking into a video card for people who play games occasionally and not willing to pay more than necessary. Or, system integrators who must find the intricate balance in both cost and performance to customers at large. PowerColor X1300 128MB may be what you are looking for.

The card came in a white OEM box without graphic; included are driver CD, manual and video out cable.
