Ripped it out of my 10-year old Dell XPS 630i and it still works, don’t know for how much longer but it still does it’s job

I have two PCs. A Zoostorm with an i3 550 and a Dell inspiron 560 with a Q8300. both perform fairly well even in more modern titles. while it may not be the case for much longer, it's certainly worth getting if you wish to play older games.
