It works fine, but I wish it supported higher video resolution.
12 July 2013
Summary: The product arrived in fine condition and worked as soon as installed. I'm not delighted with the max resolution it will handle, but since it's become difficult to find AGP video cards I'm happy with the results.
For plain graphics quality, I would stick to the original computer one.

Summary: Jesus Christ! Well, I had this chip for around two to three months now and it has some problems to work out. At first the Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate (English 32-bit Edition) settings did not work smoothly. The program to activate the chip seems to be in beta stress test. However, the version for Microsoft Windows XP HOME with SP2 works really well. To date, there is no problems that I could see.
Product great for OS below Windows 7, DirectX & opengll issues w/Win7
3 March 2013
Summary: This product is great for those looking for a graphics card for any Windows operating system before Windows 7. This graphics card is not Windows 7 compatible and NVidia doesn't have Windows 7 drivers and updates to play certain games requiring DirectX 10 or above, also the opengll 1.9, 2.0, etc was not supported for Windows 7. In conclusion, this product was a disappointment, since I needed a graphics card for Windows 7. Should have done more research.
Summary: I hate onboard graphics, all they do is eat RAM and never perform at the resolutions you want to work with, let alone game with. So there I was, building up a PC i was primarily going to use for data recovery. A PC i that had a drive bay I could slap in someones HDD and get all their data off it. As I had a 32" LCD tv in the bedroom I thought lets put it in there, then I can watch movies on the network on it too.
One of the most reliable and cost effective cards out

Summary: Despite what others will tell you, this is a GREAT card. I have one in my old / spare / back-up PC and it works a treat. If you have a slimmed version of Vista you can install it on a reasonable PC and this card not only allows for Vista Aero, but also for Dream Scene and Desk Scapes !!
Pros: Superb value for money
Cons: cannot compete with more modern cards ( GeFore 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 )
XFX GeForce FX 5200: fx 5200 cheap but not for games
9 November 2007
Summary: DO NOT! buy this card if you plan on playing any sort of games, this card is strictly for standard desktop applications and dvd/video playback. what i do like about this card is its cheap price and compatabilty for older machines which means you dont have to buy a complete new computer for the sake of a graphics card. it was also very easy to install . for an extra aded bonues this card comes with a vga and dvi output this could be used for dual moniters.
Excerpt: "This card is good, but its not the best. It wont compete with the PCIE cards now available, and if you do have a PCI E slot on your motherboard I would reccomend going for one of those. However, its still a good card. It is capable of running high graphicsc games such as Doom 3, although obviously not to the highest quality. The one bad thing about this card is the fan. After a year or so the fan on mine started making a horrific noise till ...
Pros: Holds up well with 3D modelling and rendering
Excerpt: "Like most gamers, I would like to play my games with the full graphics capability on, but at the same time, like most gamers I can't afford the super high-end video cards out there. Because I am on a budget I find this graphics card amazing value for money! It provides you with a massive 256Mb and the wonderful, fast AGP 8x Interface I bought mine a few months ago, from Amazon and I can't remember the price exactly, but they are still available ...
