Summary: I tuned my old XP box into a HTPC so i needed an AGP card with HDMI output and I was relieved this card was around. For the price you can get two or three PCIe cards but you get what you pay for and this is a great card. Also has no issues with sound through HDMI as long as you get the right drivers it is a simple setup.
Summary: Installed this card in an 7 yr old HP A735W that I converted to Windows 7 Professional. It's running an AMD processor and 2Gigs of pc3200. Card went in without a problem, used the driver cd that came in the box with the card. Restarted and it was all good. Aero graphics work now and my graphics rateing jumped from 1.0 to 6.7! Now I have no idea if the sound portion of the card works or not since I do not use that. I just use it to run dual 22" monitors.
Summary: I bought this for a friend who didn't have money for a proper system upgrade. It gets you current to about 2007-2008 era gaming graphics. If you desire the latest and greatest, you'll have to make that investment for the new PC. Kudos to Gigabyte for even giving these old AGP systems an option.
Summary: i plan on building a new computer for battlefield 3. but till then i picked up this card to bring some life into my old system. i was pretty much blown away how much it helped. im able to run games like modern warface 2 with very smooth gameplay. im still sporting a P4 3ghz. 2g of ram. and im able to even get playable frame rates with crysis. if you are looking for a card to wake up your older system this is it.
Summary: This card did not work in my computer. A computer repair store diagnosed the card as defective as one of its' chips was overheating. A second card sent by Amazon did the same thing. Gigabyte blamed the problem on my computer, first that I did not have enough power (bought new power supply) and then on the motherboard (too old). Amazon simply solved the problem and took the card back for credit. Thanks Amazon.
Summary: I bought one of these cards to put into an old Pentium 4 system I am refurbing for 2 of my grandsons (ages 7&5). In a setup with a P4 2.67Ghz, 2Gb ram, 120Gb hard drive, this card lets Windows 7 run all the Aero features. May not run the latest games at high settings but will handle a lot of them OK when set to lower graphic settings in the games.
Summary: Avoid this card if you're expecting the HDMI connector to provide both video and audio. It just does video. You still need to use a sound card or other output from your computer to your tv or sound system.
