Jaton GetForce FX5200 128 MB Dual Head PCI Video Card
24 April 2014
Summary: Arrived before the date it was supposed to come. This is my second order for this card. I am impressed with the video card. It provides dual monitors on a computer that has PCI. I am using this on an older computer so this works very well. Installation easy along with the driver software.
Works - difficult to to install drivers on Windows 7.

Summary: The DVD that contains the drivers for this product does not run on Windows 7. You have to explore the disk and drill down to the Vista folder and run the install from there. It isn't apparent that you need to find the Vista folder first. The drivers Windows wants to install does not provide any more than basic operation. The manufacturer does not provide drivers or software for Windows 7 on line. However, after installing the Vista drivers this card worked as expected.
Summary: I love this product, becase my old PC dosen't have any slots for moderen day cards. I can play TF2 at about 30 stable fps, but really no resource demanding 3D games. Minecraft works fine, about 40 fps on normal and fancy renderings. I got a 3dmark03 score of 2304 with this card.
Last copyright 2003? No Windows 7 driver? You must be kidding

Summary: I decided to go with a dual monitor system and selected this Video card. Resolution was poor and couldn't ajust for my high resolution monitor. I was suprised to find no Windows 7 drivers. Upon inspection of the box in VERY fine print showed the last copyright date 2003, almost 10 years ago! Needless to say I returned the product.
Summary: Couldn't have gone smoother. I always cringe when I work on 'ancient' XP machines. And with it being a Dell I was hoping there wouldn't wouldn't be conflicts with customized drivers, and there weren't. As always: read instructions before you start. The order of installation is very important, and we have gotten used to our current operating systems making things easier than they used to be.
Summary: Received a very lame error message saying that this graphics card can only run on 32-bit Vista/Windows 7 (I have 32-bit Windows 7 installed). tried downloading drivers from Jaton's very lame website. Download wouldn't install; returned an error saying file was corrupted (should have never had to download drivers in the first place). Tried to create an account so i could contact tech support. Authorization link blew up on me. tried to get another authorization link.
Summary: I had a Jaton GeForce FX5200 128 MB Dual Head PCI Video Card pre-installed on my custom HP desktop over four years ago. The HP has three monitors, and I stream a lot of financial data for my work, so the card got a real work-out. When the card died a few months ago, I worried that I wouldn't find a replacement. To my surprise, Amazon still carried it. The card was easy to replace. The software had been updated, so configuration was close to plug and play.
Summary: These video cards perform very well for 4-5 years until the fans in them wear out and start making noise. I have purchased many of these off eBay as replacements for the originals. Hope to get 2-3 more years out of the new ones. Good card for the money. The newer cards have a heat sink instead of the fan. Hopefully this is the fix Jaton cards needed.
Summary: All I wanted to do was run two LCD monitors. No gaming, just office apps. For that this card is great. It did not conflict in any way with the resident integrated video card. Set-up was easy, it runs quiet. You can probably get one NIB for about $15 if you look in the right places.
