Summary: I purchased this item for my window XP. My computer has a PCI slot for the graphic card, which narrows my choice. Based on my research,I think NVIDIA GeFORCE 8400 GS is probably as good as it can gets for window XP.
Summary: It did the trick as far as playing videos and being low-profile but it heats up a lot and really should come with a heat sync and a low profile bridge. Mine burned out on me because of this and now I'm out $35. Not all too happy about that.
Summary: I am a computer technician, I bought this product to upgrade my computer. My computer used NVIDIA GeForce 5200 128 MB, now I want to upgrade to 512 MB. I have tried many methods to install, but this item really does not work. It wasted my time and money.
Summary: When using this card in a 1x/2x agp slot on an intel 440BX motherboard, be sure to set the CPU front side bus to 100MHz not 133 MHz. The higher you set the frequency, the more likely you are to have a black screen with no video. Have not been able to get windows 95 and this card to work yet, too many resource conflicts. Have yet to try this card with windows 98. Best card for old computers, and containing both VGA and DVI connectors.
Summary: Plug and play. Installed into a P4 HP desktopand brought it back to life. Have never had any issues EVGA products. User can't believe it runs this fast and the viseo is fine. It's not for gaming but will help out that shared memory issue.
EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS PCI - Great card for old machine running Win 8
6 June 2013
Summary: I have an old HP DC5100 SFF PC I keep as a backup machine. This is a very good Pentium 4 HT 3.0 with 4GB (DDR2-PC3200) machine and I upgraded it to Windows 8 64 bit (without any glitches). Only problem was the on board video card was very slow for playing videos and games. I was looking for a (PCI) silent, low profile video card. Reading specs on the card and online blogs, I was concerned about the factory power supply of 240 watts.
