3 out of 5 eggs Decent video card. 12/13/2013

This review is from: SPARKLE PCI Series GeForce 8400 GS 700037 512MB PCI Video Card


-Supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0 if my memory serves.
-Best PCI card for the price and time that you'll likely find.
-Good enough GPU to run most low-tier games and applications.


-Uses an out of date port, which is miles slow than the current standards(2013)
- Not the most Memory available, $10 more will get you double.
-Older computer architecture, makes it somewhat complicated to add a video card.

Other Thoughts:

An alright video card, probably the best card you'll find for a PCI bus, but at the point of buying this card, you'd probably save money buying a used computer with a better motherboard. That wasn't an option for me though, so it's served alright.

I have a PCIe 2.0 8400 GS (1GB) which works roughly the same, albeit a ton faster.
