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 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. This card does not run Battlefield 1942 well. I think this card is pitched to gamers w/ its 128 mb of ram, but the performance is really unacceptable.
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 GF4MX only supports directx 7. The problem here is just that in most cases it simply isn't all that much faster than the GF4MX, and in some cases is a bit slower.
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 ...
Excerpt: "This graphics card is a couple years old, literally, and it is still around in online stores and even certain pc parts suppliers. I have had this graphics card over a year and even now, it is still working like a charm. I must advise, however, that because PCI Express has been released last year, you may want to opt for a newer PCIx graphics card, if your wallet can afford it. Otherwise, if your pc only has an AGP slot, then look for this graphics ...
Excerpt: "Although this card is considerably better than it's 128MB counterpart, it still falls short in performance nowadays. If you're at all interested in getting the most from your games then it's best to avoid this card now. Back when it first came out this card was fantastic, but it's been a few years since then and video card technology and graphical content has come a long way since then. For someone who only wants to use their computer for the ...
