5 out of 5 eggsNvidia Rocks

Pros: Excellent card. Using this one in a XP system that I will be upgrading to Win7. This system is identical to one of my others that's using a 9800GT. Frame rate with GT 240 (MWLL and 3dMark06 is higher). I had a 9400GT on this pc. No driver all.

Cons: Will still slow some at more intensive parts with 3dMark.
Not THE fastest card out there but IS for the money.

Other Thoughts: I've just upgraded wife's pc from Nvidia 6600 to a 8400GS for BlueRay driver issues.
I've used too many Ninvidia and ATI cards to count. I've NEVER had problems with upgrading Nividia drivers. On the other hand, with ATI, I mostly stay away from their cards just because of driver issues.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome low power folder

Pros: Low power usage. does not need 6 pin power. This is an awesome performing card, even out performing the newer GT430 which is a Fermi based card.

Cons: People who do not know how to install video drivers.
Nvidia supports ALL of their drivers and video cards under Windows XP. In fact I am running the latest drivers on ALL of the Nvidia based systems I own. If you have a problem, then it is your fault not somebody elses. The current version of drivers uninstalls the old version then installs the new version.

Other Thoughts: Windows XP has a driver that supports the fastest of the fermi chips, the 480. Saying that some outdated driver doesnt support XP and the gt240 is ludicrous.

Go to and download the latest driver. All your problems will be solved.

4 out of 5 eggsWindows XP driver problem update

Pros: Very quiet fan, almost silent. High processing power with minimum heat (see my previous review below).

Cons: I have to confirm the problem with Windows XP drivers, although I found a partial solution. The drivers work fine after a clean OS installation on a blank hard drive. But if you install the driver on a system with some old Nvidia drivers it may work or may not. Uninstallation of previous drivers does not help. I tried this video card along with similar Galaxy GT240 (24GGS8HX2PUX) on two systems with Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 and ASUS M2NPV-VM motherboards and Athlon X2 Brisbane 2.8 GHz CPU and dozen of Nvidia drivers from 182.06 to 197.45 including drivers from Palit and ASUS web-sites. There was no hardware issues - both systems work fine with fresh Windows XP or Windows 7, but with my old hard drives which I use everyday with all the programs both GT 240 video cards produce a little square (10x10 mm) in the middle of the screen in most of the applications on both systems. With other graphics cards both system work fine. That is evidently the Nvidia driver issue!

Other Thoughts: As I said in my previous review, I did search on the Internet and discovered that it is not only my problem - apparently other uses encountered the same issue. It started since driver version 183 or so. I complained to Nvidia - did not get any response so far.

Also, Guru3D did an Excellent review on this card.
Don't let a wierd review scare you away from NVidia products.

The previous reviewer has other issues, maybe bad monitor... stuck pixel...

Be not afraid.

Cons: The previous reviewer. :->

Other Thoughts: Sheesh, I mean, really????? Come on, the "net" ???

4 out of 5 eggsWindows XP driver issue

Pros: Good frame rates. Processing power is comparable with GeForce 9600 GT, 9800 GT. Just a little slower than my GeForce GTS 250 OCed. 3Dmark06 overall score on my PC with Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard and Athlon X2 Brisbane 2.8 GHz CPU was 8200, SM2 - 3600, SM3 - 3700, CPU score - 2100.

Cons: The card does not work with windows XP. There is a little square in the middle of my screen. It shows through all programs, on the desktop, games, movies, no matter what I'm doing there in a little square obstructing everything.

First I did not want to knock off the eggs since it is not a video card, but a driver issue, but then I thought it came with a driver as a package deal, and the driver really made it unusable to me.

Other Thoughts: I did a search on the Internet and found out that all NVIDIA new drivers starting somewhere since 2007 do NOT work with Window XP OS. Driver version 182.06 still works, at least with my GTS 250, but it does not support GT240. The newer drivers have the same problem: little square in the middle of the screen. Which means that all NVIDIA new cards do not work with Windows XP. And since there is a lot of users still working with Windows XP they should really look into this issue! If somebody already have a solution (apart from installing a new operating system) please post it here, otherwise I will have to return my new GT 240 video-card to the store.
