Summary: I know this is discontinued here, but its still available from a popular auction site and a couple small vendors (search for it). I recently rebuilt an old Athlon XP 3200+ PC just for the fun of it and needed a video card. This one works out quite well.
Pros: Passive Cooling = Completely Silent Solid Drivers in XP Compact Size Low Power Consumption Decent Performance
Cons: Rather Small VRAM (wish it was 512MB) DDR2 instead of DDR3 Somewhat Flimsy PCB
Pros: Been using this for 5 years plus. No problems. Computer hooked up to big screen and 21 inch monitor using both dual monitor inputs. Is warm but normal cooling from case fan is just fine. My case fan is set at 11/16 full speed. If you can find one of these used on E bay, you will like it.
Cons: AGP not PCI. But for an old motherboard, this is what you must use.
Summary: As mentioned, the heatsink mounting holes are oddly positioned and offset, making the ZEROtherm GX810 (which was advertised as compatible with 7600 series cards - no mention of AGP excusions) unable to be used with this card.
Pros: Excellent performance for what it is. I didn't purchase this for gaming, but will say that I was pulling high 40- to mid 50-FPS in Portal at 1280x1024 with high quality settings.
Cons: Runs hot without active cooling in a poorly ventilated case (older Dell.) Unusual heatsink mounting holes make aftermarket fan/heatsinks - such as the ZEROtherm GX810 - bad matches for this card.
Summary: Gigabyte really should change their documentation to show that this graphics card is backwards compatible to AGP 4x.
Pros: I installed this graphics card into an Abit KR7A-133R motherboard that has an AGP 4x slot(AGP 2.0 compliant). It works great in both Windows XP SP3, and Ubuntu 8.04. I'm using Nvidia's drivers in both operating systems. And in Windows XP I used Speedfan to access the graphic cards temperature .
Cons: Like everyone else has said here, this card really does need a fan if you want it to last. I used an Evercool EC-SB-RV. Search for it on Newegg. I mounted it in PCI slot one, right next to the AGP slot. And left PCI slot two open so the fans had room for air intake. I set the fan speed on low. Yo...
