Summary: I was fixing up an older PC so I could use it for a special application. The old video card was painfully slow so I looked around for a newer AGP card. There isn't many to pick from and I bought this one. It works fine with both Windows and Ubuntu Linux.
Summary: Sadly there is no AGP driver for linux (Arch) for this GPU. Works fine in console via vesa but failed at X. Ubuntu get this card to work under X but performance is very bad. Don't know under Windows, I don't have any box running that OS.
Summary: Great video card for it's "legacy" application. Not compatible with windows 7 though... Huge pain in the butt. I made something work but would not suggest this card to windows 7 users(32 bit at least, I can't speak to 64 bit Compatibility).
Onboard fan powers on, but no signal to monitor. Bad card or does it simply hate Dells, like others have reported?

Summary: I tried this card on a Dell PowerEdge 400SC server (old Pentium 4, circa 2003, had the newest BIOS version A10 ). No signal output to the monitor. My monitor didn't even come out of sleep mode. I manually turned the monitor on & off, re-inserted the VGA cable, no luck. I tried both the VGA and HDMI connectors on the card, but neither one sent anything out. I hooked up the HDMI to a TV, still nothing.
Summary: Yep, I read Rossman's and DesperateDude's reviews but like an idiot I bought the card anyway and sure enough, it performed just as Rossman predicted - no video out on VGA or HDMI. I have a 2003 Dell Precision 360 Workstation, thinking a 'workstation class' mobo could handle it but alas. I even updated my BIOS which according to Dell "Fixed memory size errors when changing the AGP aperture." but still to no avail.
Summary: This did not work when I received it. I sent it in for warranty check and repair and or replacement three weeks ago but have not heard anything from them. At this point I wouldn't recommend this. Will update when I hear from the manufacture.
