Best you can still find for the PCI slot
21 February 2014
Summary: Nice item for making an old PC with AGP or PCI capable for HD playback, Blu-ray 3D, and streaming HD-audio over HDMI. This is the best solution for PCI. More powerful (96 vs 48 CC) than the GT 520 and GT 610 pci cards that have been sold by Zotac and others since this card was available in retail. But this card is becoming rare now a days. Get it while you can. The performance of the card honestly depends on the CPU you pair with.
Summary: Works for what I bought it for! PCI slot support with Aero effects, directx 11 and multimonitor support. Plug and Play with my older Dell Dimension 3000 running Windows 7 SP1. If you're looking to play newer games at high settings, don't bother with this. You're going to need a newer generation PCI express motherboard and a good AMD or Nvidia Graphics Card.
Summary: Needed this card for now until my next build.... This card performs very well at low temps and is a great accessory to an older machine. My specs: Windows XP Pro 64bit Intel Dual Core Duo 4GB Vengence Ram 480w PSU GT430 I have played many games like the 18 Wheels Of Steel series on high settings with fully anti aliasing. This card does not break a sweat, operating at temperatures around 30-45 degrees.
Summary: I had an internal TV card with 4 Tuners in my PC and there wasn't enough room for a PCI-E graphics card, so, because this card has HDMI, I thought I would try this card in one of the PCI slots. The graphics were not acceptable, so I removed the TV Tuner, installed a "HIS Radeon HD 6670 1GB" PCI-E card and moved to two USB TV Tuners. Perfect. Great picture on my 60" HDTV when watching HD TV channels.
Summary: I was hoping to update and breathe a little life into an old P4 computer before handing it over to the kiddos. Originally the PC only had 512MB of memory and the original onboard video card. The PC was unbearably slow, almost to the point that it was unusable. After adding the Zotac video card and upgrading the RAM to 2GB this little PC smokes, for it's age and OS. Cannot say enough about this card. If you are looking to update an old PC this might be your ticket!
Summary: I originally ordered this for a low-end gaming computer for my girlfriend. Price was great and I was on a tight budget, so this card seemed like it would do the fix until I could buy her a better graphics card and I was going to use the card on my PC for a second monitor in the future. That was until I ran into a problem. Windows 7 (64-bit) will not detect this card in the PCI slot, not sure about 32-bit.
best plaiin old style pci video card on ther market
15 May 2012
Summary: this is the best pci video card on the planet right now as of 2012 this card has 96 cuda cores most of any pci card right now its nvidia!! shows It shows on old pci slot as a pcie x1 in in bandwidth terms great pcroduct thanks again zotac for continueing to push the pci for a little more great for legacy system with no pcie
Summary: No doubt that it would have worked for anyone else, it just didn't work for me. I had it in a CUDA machine and it couldn't complete tasks on BOINC. Lots of people run these cards and get them to work, but with 295.48 and 6.10.60 it wasn't for me. I'll try again later. By itself the card did display graphics, so if you just need a fast PCI card then this is your way to go.
Summary: With a rebate, $50 seemed a reasonable price for this 100 core card. I needed a spunky card for my sole MS Widows machine, but admit being bit leery about installation of something that doens't require that one compile the driver. It turned out to be as simple as plug 'n pray. Once running in VGA mode, I had Widows search online for an optimal driver ... and viola! The machine serves as an HTPC, and with the card and Atom processor are fine with a 250W.
