Summary: At first my pc didn't start because it is heavily loaded with equip (3 HDs, DVD, Soundblaster) and I only had a 350W power supply. I replaced the Power Supply to 500W and now the GeForce 7800 AGP video card is working like a champ. I tested it with Call of Duty4 and works great.
Summary: Not long after using this card to replace a defective one in my desktop, it started making "whirring sounds" on start-up. I have determined the noise is from a fan that is not spinning due to a restriction on the card itself. It finally starts running after about 30 seconds. I sent them an email and was told, "if it works, don't worry". I won't worry, and I won't purchase another Zotac product.
if you looking to do some good gaming in HD and your on a budget buy this:)

Summary: This Graphics card kicks ass, i bought it to allow for my hdtv to be used as a monitor and so far have not been dis-appointed. It tears through my games on the highest setting which a found pretty uprising considering how affordable this GPU is and HD videos for this is a walk in the park, i have dead space 2 install on my pc and i have a ps3 with that same demo so trust me when i say this graphics card can easily compete with a ps3's graphics, i am not even going to by...
Summary: This Nvidia video card is fairly decent. It is kind of a mid range component but works quite well. I like the Nvidia products but you have to be carefull when installing the correct drivers. There are a lot of additional drivers and programs that you don't always need. In short I would say, keep it simple, just install what you need and hope the compatibility is there. If I had to buy it again I would not hesitate. I have no problems with the card.
Summary: This is my first graphics card and I must say that it is amazing. Very reasonably priced, easy to install, and has all of the outputs that you would need. Running mid level games without a hitch and with programs in the background, windows has never looked any better. Took my windows 7 gaming experience index for graphics from 3.4 to 6.4 out of 7. I will get one for my other pc as well. This is a beautiful graphics card. Highly Recommended.
