Somewhat nice...but has a problem 03/26/2007
This review is from: JATON GeForce FX 5200 DirectX 9 Video-228PCI-Twin 128MB 64-Bit DDR PCI Video Card
The card worked very well right out of the box. Very little installation needed, just drivers and I was up and running my dual-monitor. I don't play games or use any high graphics, just the typical DVD, internet and school stuff. Worked nice....but.....
Now, 14 months later, the fan has gone to poop. It makes this really annoying rattling/vibrating sound, and it's drivin me crazy. I'm using my laptop only right now because I'm awaiting my new video card I bought yesterday. Lasted for a long time. I tried tinkering with the screws, seeing if anything was loose, but couldn't locate anything. Not a bad buy for $75.
Might as well pay the additional money and get the Dual DVI-I cards now since they can send both signals. Wouldn't want the fan thing to happen to you either, so maybe just opt for soemthing else? Your call. Clarity was fine, but like I said, I didn't do any games or high-graphic stuff. Might work well for the everyday-browser person just checking the mail or doing homework.
