2 out of 5 eggsEh...

Pros: Well, if you have an agp system and not much money this is an "option".

Cons: Where to begin. Runs HOT. And it gets worse over time... And sure it's dx9 but I haven't encountered a game YET that it can run in dx9. Runs CS:S in dx8 and COD2 in dx7. Bought the orange box and well... It ran Portal and TF2 but couldn't run ANY of the half life campaign games. Comes up as either dx8 library issue or dx9 device not present. So unless you play strictly 2d games, I wouldn't recommend this card.

Other Thoughts: I didn't buy this from newegg, at the time I got this card I didn't even know what newegg was. I got it at a retail store for three times this price two years ago... I would recommend getting a Radeon X1650 PRO given it's in the same price range and won't give you the garbage that this card does. Which is why I have one on the way from newegg :-)

Pros: Good card for the price. This card is not for high end gaming but good for the average user.

Cons: freezes up once in a while. I thought it might be the pc until it happened on both pc's that have this same card in it

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good price. PNY quality. Fast Newegg shipping. Worked first try in my old AGP slot. OS system recognized it right away. Low power requiremnts allowed me to run 2 video cards on an older low powered system for multiple monitors. I'm running 4 monitors now for real time charting/graphing.

Cons: Gets pretty warm with multiple monitors running.

Other Thoughts: Trying to make an older socket 478 system run just a little while longer, until I can get up to speed on computer hardware and software issues. Then I'll buy or build a system for my future computing needs/wants.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card for price

Pros: The price is good if you want to update an older computer with an AGP slot. Graphics are decent and it was easy to install. I play guildwars and it works great.

Cons: The drivers that came with it were very outdated and caused my system to crash especially when i was gaming. Also the card overheats very easily due to the practically non existent heat sink ( if thats what they call it) I updated the drivers on the PNY website and I have not had a problem yet.

Other Thoughts: when you update the drivers make sure you uninstall previous drivers because they will conflict with one another. I know that sounds obvious but it is an easy mistake to make.

2 out of 5 eggsPNY Slow graphics

Pros: this is a good card but

Cons: after uses of gaming it will slow down

Other Thoughts: We tested this one card on a system runing a intel pen 4 dule core 2.6 we found this card to be slow in the fps test this card ran slow on a older game, the other card we used was a radeon 256 same type of speed and older then this card it was faster then the gforce 5200 fx and the drivers are not able to be gotten by g-force them selfs took us 2 months to find the drivers. in all the the g force card was less then 2 years old, the radeon was over 4 years old we did match the manifacture dates to be in the same areas.

2 out of 5 eggsNot great so far

Pros: I'll let you know when I find one.

Cons: I was supposed to get free memory heatsinks with the card and did not receive them. Also, 3 day select...ISN'T!

Other Thoughts: I ordered this 12/25 and it shipped on the 26, 3 day select. I received it on 01/02. Skipping the weekend and holiday, I still should have received it on 12/31.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card

Pros: The card works very good for windows. haven't tried linux but see no problems there. You can clone, span, or dual-view your monitors but you might find the software you're using won't let you do it.

Cons: none. just make sure you have a high watt power supply (350W and up).

4 out of 5 eggsNo Problems

Pros: No problem with hardware installation. Does what I need it to do.

Cons: CD drivers are a joke. Installation stated that setup didn't support OS and gave a link to the web site. C'mon it's plain vanilla XP Pro! Web site was cumbersome to navigate. Eventually found drivers from their site.

Other Thoughts: The hardware worked flawlessly. PNY driver was a joke. This situation called for dual VGA monitors in a business environment. Don't know if it would do the trick with low end gaming.
