2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money

Pros: Allows game play of slightly older games at very low settings (for decent frame rates).

Cons: PCI interface appears to be the limiting factor here. Don't spend this kind of money if you have to put a gfx board on a PCI-only motherboard. Go with a much cheaper MX4000 because the difference is imperceptible.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 for Dell GX110's (P3 733 + 256 MB RAM). Already had an MX4000 (64 MB RAM) in a 3rd identical system. In Unreal Tournament 2004 I have to turn everything all the way down in order to get any kind of decent frame rates, and still it's not smooth (quite a bit < 60 fps). All 3 systems appear to run at the same rate no matter what I do. Using nvidia drivers from download. Called BFG and they confirmed that the limitation is the PCI bus. DON'T BUY!!!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: It works. I can play all games on it that I've tried so far.

Cons: It's PCI.

Other Thoughts: If you can go AGP or PCI Express, do so.

5 out of 5 eggsGood VDC

Pros: This is a good mid-grade card. Will play HL2 at medium settings @ 35-45fps.

Cons: Spend $30-40 more bucks and get a way better pcix16 card.

Other Thoughts: This card is only $xx whereas in best buy you can only get it for $xxx, thats where i bought my first one...

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but driver problems

Pros: Works very well for a cheap video card. Fit right into my computer. I can now play CS 1.6 with a constant 60 FPS and I can play Age of Empires III on medium quality. A good buy if you have a computer like mine (an IBM, about 4 years old).

Cons: The CD doesn't work. I had to call tech support and wait on hold for 20-30 minutes, and it took me another 20-30 minutes to get it finally installed. Throw out the CD, it's worthless. I had to download the driver online.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a good card that works fine (after getting the driver installed).

5 out of 5 eggsReally Good

Pros: Does what I want it to go and runs smoothly at it.

Cons: -Drivers on CD are bad, like the other guy said just download the drivers from site.
-I walked outside randomly to check for the package and there it was on my porch. The guy didnt knock or anything just threw the package off on the porch and drove off. I say that because I had checked for it 2 minutes earlier.

Other Thoughts: Excellent PCI card

4 out of 5 eggsGood low-priced card

Pros: Easy to install in a Dell E310. No power supply connection needed. If you have a Dell E series without a agp or pci-e slot this is a good card. Don't wait forever to find a 6200 at a good price - you won't.

Cons: Drivers on disk and disk itself is useless. Download the drivers from the manufactures web site.

4 out of 5 eggsHot for a PCI

Pros: If you only have PCI slots and no PCIexpress or AGP like a lowend dell. This is the best I found and it's cheap

Cons: Can't really tell it has a factory OC. Had some problems with the drivers that came with it.

Other Thoughts: Throw out the install CD and get the drivers from the web site.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Ive had this card for about 2 years now and it hasnt given me any fuss. its a good card and even now it runs games like Css and Dod fine. 30 - 60 fps. it can run quake4 on low for about 8 - 15fps. if u dont care about vid cards that much, this is what you should get. BUT! dont expect to paly games like supreme commander or ut2k7 on this.

Cons: just that it isnt top notch

Other Thoughts: its a good deal for the price i guess. but i would go for the 7900 GT OC

4 out of 5 eggsDecent video card

Pros: This card brought an old useless computer back to life so to speak. 256 mb of ram and decent core clock speed make up for there only being 4 pixel pipelines. Was able to play "The Incredibles". Dont laugh it is a very graphic intense game. High res 3D with very accurate modeling of Newtons laws.

Cons: Driver that came with card didnt recognize hardware and wouldnt install.

Other Thoughts: Called BFG tech support and they told me to download Nvidia's drivers and the problem was solved.
