Pros: Still runs DX9/DX10 at competitive resolutions, BOINC beast

Cons: Age, power consumption, not worth it to fold

Scored one of these off Ebay for $26. Was dusty, but it worked. Played MW3 and temps reached 79 degrees. Removed the cooler, cleaned it up, reapplied the thermal paste, and temps dropped to 58. The fan is a bit noisy and I might replace it, but this thing plays MW3 just as well as my GTS 450, which I paid five times more for a year ago (!). Crunches well on BOINC too!

Troubleshooting/Known Issues:

You'll probably run into a 7A or 4F BSOD, and that's because Windows will update the driver automatically which won't allow you to utilize the card fully.  Update to Catalyst from the AMD website, and then immediately afterward run CC Cleaner (google it).  This will remove the driver issue, and allow you to utilize the card to it's maximum potential (it won't let you BOINC with the windows driver).
