5 out of 5 eggsworks grest

Pros: works great windows vista now get a rating of 5.1 No problems at all I downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia and all is well much faster than my onboard. I love the ddr3 memory makes it much faster.

Cons: If you are going to use the svideo then you have to remove the plastic tab from one end of the svideo cable.

Other Thoughts: Does what it is designed to do

5 out of 5 eggsSuprisingly Great

Pros: Price! And it runs all your usual pc games and decent settings (Crisis is not a USUAL game... its a resource hog). Tagged it with a heat sensor and this baby at full load reaches 65c. Not bad at all. Runs Guild wars at max settings and that's all my girlfriend plays.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Know what your buying. I understand economy is rough, but do not expect EVGA or XFX overclocking abilities on this simple little piece of hardware. It will run what its designed to run.

4 out of 5 eggsEZ upgrade

Pros: Priced low as more-lame cards.
"Graphics Turbo" 7300, so 8 pipelines like the 7600, the 7300"Graphics Standard" had only 4.
2 sticks of DDR3 soldered on, connected dual channel, so no memory-bandwidth bottleneck....screen updates fast, even when games aren't running.

Cons: trivial: 1 of 2 outputs is analog only (blue VGA-15), but dual DVI rare at this low price

Other Thoughts: special power supply cable not needed to run this, an "Express" PCI slot can power it..

5 out of 5 eggsIt's awesome for its price

Pros: It works well with my 2004 hp pc and I can also play left 4 dead at max settings.

Cons: the metal piece that holds the dvi and sd connector was a bit thick and didn't fit all the way in my pc, so I had to saw a part of it off.

Other Thoughts: I need to upgrade my 512mb of ddr ram so I can play left 4 dead smoother.

5 out of 5 eggsHas it's uses, good price

Pros: Works great in an old PC, the story goes like this.

Received an old PC someone was about to throw away, was an old AMD with 256mb of RAM, onboard video, and a small HD. PC was riddled with so many virus' (virii?) and spyware, and bloatware that it took the owner a very long time to boot up and it was crashing and slow, and giving him problems and he was fed up and was trashing it.

Knowing I am a PC hobbyist he gave it to me in a bit of rationality. It had an XP Home product code sticker on it, I happened to have an OEM copy of XP from my own PC. I just wiped HDD, re-installed XP with the PC's own legit product code and was golden.

So I bought this card, and a wireless internet dongle from rosewill. I hooked S-video out to this card and hooked it up to my fathers old CRT SDTV (he won't go "HD" yet, so the DVI / VGA out is not an option).

This was his father's day gift. Now he can watch hulu.com videos in the comfort of his living room.

Cons: No adapters included, just the card in an anti static bag, and a CD-ROM with the drivers. Didn't expect any adapters though as it's clearly stated and shown in the photo's that there aren't any. Not too big of a con.

Other Thoughts: Popped the plastic tab off of an S-video cable, as "The Newegg Kid" also mentions in his review, so that it would fit into the back of the slot on the video card.

The card is in an e-machines PC with a 300watt power supply with 15 amps on the 12v rail. After reading the requirements I was somewhat reluctant to install it, but everything is going fine. This PC won't be used for gaming, just for streaming internet videos off of hulu and youtube basically.

5 out of 5 eggsGeforce 7300gt 256mb 128-bit gddr3 pci ex16

Pros: computer recognized it immediately, afterwords installed drivers.
no errors, came with-in 3 days and the computer is way better now.

Cons: none, unless count that had to remove something from case for it o fit( was nothing important just some very thin aluminum piece of metal, was blocking the exits of vga/s-video)

Other Thoughts: none really just one of the drives from desktop didn't detect cd, but the 2nd drive did.
