Summary: I bought this card for my best friend as a birthday present. He upgraded from an older EVGA Geforce 210 512 MB DDR2. That card ran well for 4 years very well, but now it has a growl on the fan. Don't want to chance burning it up since the card is still working. He wanted an upgrade to where he could play his games. The 210 only played his games at 15 to 20 fps max. Halo 2 struggled to hit 30 fps at lowest settings and Call of duty MW3 got only 15 fps max at times.
Summary: This card was given to me by a friend for free, decent little card played gentle games well but Arma2 struggled. The stock clocks are 700 MHz graphics 535 MHz Memory 1400 MHz processor POST over clock (my max with mostly stable clocks) 900 MHz graphics 650 MHz Memory 1800 MHz processor Over all its a OK buy, but if you wish to play crazy intensive games, just save up.
Summary: This replaced a GeForce GT 9800/1GB DDR PCIe video card, uses less power with higher resolution than the more expensive card. I am able to access more games with this card than the 9800, with less heat and cost.
Summary: The age old question has always been which is better, AMD or Nvidia? Well today I review the two low end cards of the totem pole, which are priced the same. Both units have one gigabyte of GDDR3 VRAM, and both also have VGA, DVI, and HDMI outputs. Some things to consider are that these units are NOT for heavy gamers, these are for multi media pc's and light gaming.
Summary: Running the following specs: Core 2 Quad Q9550 @2.83 GHZ 8 GB DDR2 Corsair XM 2 RAM @800 MHZ ANTEQ Basiq Power Supply 350W Net gear PCI wireless 802.11n card (2.4 GHZ) PNY NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 w/ 1GB RAM Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit I can run Battlefield 3 on a 64 player server at LOW with about 35 - 40 FPS Far Cry 3 runs at LOW with 35 - 40 FPS Fallout: New Vegas runs on Medium with 30 - 40 FPS
Summary: Bought a new huge monitor to do Lightroom work. The screen resolution was 2560 x 1440 and found my graphics card could not accommodate. I bought this as the price was right for decent quality for a capable card. I do not use the pc for any gaming. The card was easy to install and works perfectly. I now run 2 monitors off it. Sweet! ** Update ** It's been 3 months and the card died.
Summary: You get what you pay for, if you have an old system that just needs the bare minimums for a media computer, that doesn't need any external power than this card is fine. I put these in some old Core 2 duo machines and they run CoD4, Battlefield 2, Unreal tournament 3, BLUR just fine.
Summary: This is good video card, easy to install and with a very nice price. I installed in a PC using XP and worked immediately. However, as it came without the driver, I got a hard time looking for the right one online, for this reason I didn't rate a 5. Yes, I recommended to someone who doesn't need very high video requirements.
