Summary: My old video card was so bad that no matter what monitor I used, I could not even download needed internet security and pc care software from the internet because the pages were impossible to navigate. The windows were so big could not get down to the fill in the form parts. Dell Dimension 3000. Installed this in minutes, drivers included are for Win XP, but within a few minutes on the NVidia site was able to download the corect drivers, now computer is like new.
Summary: Our customer did not have AGP or PCI EXPRESS so this was the next best thing to install on their motherboard for extra video OOMPH. Wish it was more powerful but there arent too many PCI only video cards with graphics power (at least not cheaply)
Summary: My Dell computer (which I bought in 2003) began having issues. Specifically there were green lines all over the monitor which made it impossible to go online or use the computer for that matter. I brought it in to the Geek Squad at my local Best buy and he pulled out the video card and told me it was burned out and I needed to replace it. I am not a computer person but I asked him to show me how to replace the card (it was very easy).

Summary: EVGA is generally a name you can trust when it comes to NVidia cards. This card is about as good as you can get when it comes to AGP slotted video cards without spending a lot. It's a good choice for upgrading an aging computer to help it keep up with today's standards.
Summary: I purchased this card to use in a Pentium4 D computer with an AGP 8x slot, with the intention of getting accelerated openGL and compositing effects at 1680x1050, in KDE 4. It worked. The installation was straight forward and it has worked as it should for 3 weeks now. I have not tried the Windows drivers as I do not use Windows on this computer. This is a good basic AGP video card. If that is what you need do not hesitate to buy it.
Summary: I needed a card that I could install in my Dell 2350 because the on-board video was not supported by Windows 7. Works great and I'm a happy camper because I can extend the life of my PC a while longer.

Summary: I installed this on a Dell Dimension 3000 running windows XP after installing 2 GB RAM, and it significantly increased the performance of the computer, especially when surfing the web. I think it was the combined use of the video card and the 2GB RAM, but I am able to go to websites with a lot of pictures and watch youtube videos with very little choppiness. So its a great card for an old computer.
