Summary: Good product but beware the company went out of business in August 2010. The advertised specs say lifetime warranty and product support, but the lifetime of the company has expired, so don't expect anything.
Summary: I bought this for my Dell Dimension 3000, It works perfect. I've never installed a video card before, but I had no problems installing and getting it to work! The performance isn't much better than the video card on the motherboard, but it provides Shader Model 4.0, which is the main reason I got it and I can play most games now.
Summary: I searched for a card with at least 512mb to deliver decent video quality to play new games on 5+ year old Dell and Gateway computers. This card works well in a PCI slot. It was a fair deal at $60 and a smoking deal a $35. Pop in the CD, load the drivers, set XP to use this card as the primary then reboot to change your bios. Happy gaming.
Summary: i'd love to leave a positive review on this product like the rest but I was unable to get this card to work in my Dell Dimension 3000 (while another PCI video card works fine in its place). No video output from the VGA whatsoever, monitor just stayed in "sleep" mode... Even tried running on-board only to get booted up, allowed windows to detect the card, installed proper drivers, then switched video back to "auto" from "on-board"... still no avail. It's going back...
Summary: Ever since I had 2 other PCI Video Cards on this Dell Dimension 3000. I did some research on some PNY/E-VGA/BFG Tech/ATI/etc PCI Video Cards. I found out that BFG Tech has a life time warranty. Which the other companies don't have. So that means you get a life time warranty on a product that will last for years!!! Pros: 1. Offers 4.0 Shader Model 2. 512MB of DDR2!! 3. Has the performances of x2 more than the BFG Tech 6200 OC 4. Has DVI/VGA/S-Video 5. Has HDCP Capable 6.
