Pros: A GeForce 9000 series on the PCI bus. Useful if upgrading a really old computer without a AGP or newer bus.
Cons: Due to the PCI bus the cards abilities feel limited. I have a strange issue which is still unresolved as to why my Motherboards onboard video is running as the main GPU, and not this card.
This card is outputting video for windows, however, it doesn't do ANY GPU processing. World of Warcraft gives me 8 frames per second on the lowest settings. I fail to believe a card of this standard, if working as the GPU, would output that low amount of frames.
I am using the card for video because the old card in this PC died. Ordered a replacement card (more information below), and will replace this card with that one. Already have someone wanting to buy this card from me, too, so not all is lost.
Other Thoughts: The first card was damaged, and kept saying it was a card of different ram and bus. I delt with EVGA's customer service (or lack thereof), and recieved no help as to why the card was messed up. The techs basicly refused to believe the card was damaged in any way, and insisted it was my hardware that wasn't working properly.
They told me to try the same things over again, as well as stuff I had already tried. After all that, my last question "Do I RMA this with Newegg.com or EVGA?" took them two days to respond to. The other questions I had were answered within hours, to a day max.
I'm not keeping this card because this experience has led me away from GeForce, period. I don't blame Nvidia for EVGA's customer service, but this experience with what I was told was a good company has led me to believe other wise.
I am smitching to ATI and the Radeon brand. This card is going to be removed from my PC when my ordered Diamond AGP card arrives this week, also from Newegg.com.
