    Look at the edge of the box in this picture. (It's Picture #3 in Bta's post.) Notice the side panel says 1GB DDR3, but the front panel says 1GB DDR2. :slap:

    This card looks like the equivalent of a passive HD 4650 with DX11 support and less power consumption.

    The thing about these cards,they cost too much money. For a card like this, it should only cost 39 bucks.
