It works fine, but I wish it supported higher video resolution.

  • 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.

Not reccomended

Amazon
27 September 2003
  • Summary: I got this card to replace a PNY Geforce 420. This card performs significantly worse than that older card. Do not be fooled by the fact that this card has 128 mb of RAM. That really means nothing. This card has no fan and seems likely to overheat unless your computer's cooling is really top notch.

Underwhelming performance

Jeff "jack of many trades", Amazon
14 May 2003
  • Summary: The Geforce FX 5200 is intended to replace the old Geforce4MX 440, and it does succeed there. It does usually perform somewhat better than the old GF4MX (And over time the GF4MX will look even slower in comparison with games like Doom 3 on the horizon), and it also supports directx 9, whereas the...

This card is ideal for non top end gaming

  • Excerpt: 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.

It was good some years ago but not anymore

  • Excerpt: This card is ok, but its not, by any means, the best card out there. It won't compete with the PCIE cards now available, and if you do have a PCI E slot on your motherboard I would reccomend going a PCI express card since these have higher bandwidth. However, its still a good card.

  • Excerpt: 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 !!
