Summary: As old as this card is, it still manages to play some very graphic intensive games. I bought this to upgrade my sons old Gateway desktop with an upgraded 550W powersupply. If you can still find these cards brand new, grab one for the price.
Summary: I'm relatively computer savvy. I can remove and replace cards. I can install software. I've replaced and upgrade my comp several times now. Until my previous card died. The same card lasted me five years of constant use. Easy to replace and the buillt in fan is wonderful for those hot days.
Summary: Back in August I was sold on Folding@Home project and started donating CPU time and electricity. My machine was running 24x7 and everything went smooth. I escalated position in the donor scale very quickly thanks to the processing capabilities of an NVIDIA 9800GX2 and a quad core CPU.
Summary: I ordered this card back in early December and got it the day after X-Mas. Let me tell you, this card ROCKS! Bioshock, HL2:Ep2, Portal, Guitar Hero 3 are all running at 1920x1080 in all their smooth glory. (I have my PC hooked up to my 52" LCD tv.
Summary: Amazing card for the money. It's the same as a 9800gt. I think they're around the same price, but it's worth noting that the presumably higher echelon is the exact same product. Anyway, I'm still using it and it runs all games with ease. Even Crysis looks pretty good.
Summary: This graphics card requires an external electrical connection which our computer did not have. Apparently, unless your computer came with a graphics card that used a special connection to the computer, your computer will not likely have these connections in it.
