1 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Poor.

Pros: The card is a cheap alternative to onboard graphics for those of you just looking to play a few flash games.

Of course, this is meant for systems with no PCIe or AGP slot.

Cons: Not user friendly at all, and very diffcult to install. Took 3 different tries to even get it to install, and the drivers on the CD do not work at all.
This card also will not support a dual head setup. I may have just gotten a bad apple, but trying to set up a second monitor results in BSOD (WinXP) every time.

Other Thoughts: For the casual user trying to get flash games or Aero running at a decent speed, and that's it, this should do. Other than that, if your computer has no PCIe or AGP slot, I would consider upgrading the Mobo rather than using this card.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best for Business

Pros: I have been using these cards for over 3 years now and they are the best I have ever found for multi-monitor setups in business. I've purchased over a 60 of them without any defects or issues. Actually, my oldest is almost 4 yrs old and it is still running in a desktop! It is a cheap, reliable, and highly mobile card. I have many different desktop models ranging from HP to Lenovo at our offices and it has never had a problem. I have tried more advanced or higher end cards before to run our 3 monitor displays and have either had problems getting the desktops to work with it and still recognize an on-board or additional card. This guy is just the tops when it comes to business applications and usage.

Cons: Have to go in and modify some of the BIOS video card setting on certain computer models. Not a big deal but just an FYI.

Other Thoughts: If you are a gamer this card isn't for you. If you are a business and want to enhance your productivity via multi-monitors setups, don't mess around and get these cards! You won't regret it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card, Bad support

Pros: This is a great card for the money. I have two of them now in two separate machines and have not had any trouble from them.

Cons: The only problem I have with this card was during installation. Technical support is terrible. They have an 800 number you can call, but it is only a computer. You have to leave a phone number for a person to call you back, and they never called. I guess they have a troubleshooting section on the website, but kinda hard to use if you have no video.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Video Card

Pros: This is an excellent video card. I originally got an ATI video card that was a complete piece of garbage. I will always stick with Nvidia GeForce from now on. I am currently using this card and a Nvidia Geforce 2 TI 64mb DDR Chaintech Agp 4x 128bit together for my triple monitor setup. The PNY GeForce Fx5200 ran flawlessly right out of the box and I didn't even need to install the drivers or any software from the provided disk. This is definitely the card to get if you want a multi-monitor setup for a relatively cheap price. This is not made for gaming and should be used as a secondary card for the two extra monitors. I use my agp Geforce 2 ti video card as my primary card an I use it for gaming and turn off the other two monitors when I want to play counter-strike or other pc games. Overall this is a top of the line PCI video card with excellent usability.

Cons: NONE

5 out of 5 eggsGreat secondary video card for multi.

Pros: Bought as a second video card on WinXP system behind a PCI-e primary video card (also NVIDIA) for monitor(s) number 3 (and a 4th later). Installed card, hooked up monitor, booted puter, and new monitor was there and working! All I had to do was set the new monitor's resolution and adjust it's relative position to the two monitors on my primary card. Was expecting a fight somewhere, thrilled that it meshed like a dream.

Cons: No complaints whatsoever :) Use primary card for gaming. This card for spreadsheet and business apps and it has plenty of horsepower for that.

Other Thoughts: The NVIDIA software works good too. Easier to adjust the individual monitor properties than using Control Panel. One curiosity about WinXP, it assigns the first display on the new card as #2 monitor with the second display on primary video card becoming the #3 monitor. It's very cool...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Has Good Video Graphics for all sorts of games, movies and everything in between. Easy to install.

Cons: the instruction manual was not the correct product.

Other Thoughts: I was getting an upgrade for my dell, with a built in Graphics card. It would work at start up but then when windows loaded I had to switch back to my on board GC, if you have a built in Graphics Card make sure to go to sytem, device manager and disable the old one after the drivers are installed, and it should work!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to read installation instructions, idiot proof bootup. This card can handle even Sins of a Solar Empire at decent detail settings easily, which has recently become a gaming benchmark. No technical difficulties arising from this installation whatsoever in the six months I've owned it, well done PNY.

Cons: One of the oldest and least effective GeForce cards available, limited ongoing tech support by GeForce currently. Has difficulty rendering over about 80 to 100 ships in 3-D on Sins during a battle and will get choppy but otherwise is very good. Instructions are slightly vague on the proper switchover procdures when transferring the monitor from integrated to graphics card output, be patient and methodical when setting this up on the Display control panel as I suppose this is not the responsibility of PNY when they wrote the instructions.

Other Thoughts: This was an upgrade to an aging Dell Inspiron desktop to allow me to play Halo PC and later Sins of a Solar Empire on a budget and I can say that you will be blown away by the increase this will give to the graphics quality over integrated graphics. I went from no mirroring effects to having every conceivable eye candy on Halo and a high/medium textures on everything with Sins. Comp specs: P4 with HT 2.8ghz, 5200FX, 1.2 gb of PC2-5300 RAM/

1 out of 5 eggsDon't do it

Pros: I can't think of any. Maybe price, but then you have to return it because it sucks!

Cons: Remember the directions, uninstall all video drivers altogether at once before installing the video driver. If not, you'll hose the system and then after getting it back up, BIOS may still not see it as a PCI card, depending on manufacturer of board. I'm sure this would be a great card back in the 90's, but for now, it's sucks!

Other Thoughts: I'd rather chew on amber hot coals than try to mess up another machine with this card.
