NVIDIA® Quadro® K600 VCQK600-PB 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

Pros: For various reasons, I'm working on an old Windows XP system, but I want to be able use larger monitors. I quickly found that this card works perfectly driving my Samsung 23 inch 2048x1152 through a DVI-D Dual cable. It's sharp, fast and quiet. Plays videos full screen. I'm pleased. Eventually, I want to go to 3840x2160, but that will have to wait for now. Instead, I added a second 1280x1024 monitor. Using the supplied adapters it goes: DVI output through DisplayPort, VGA output through DVI port. Works beautifully.

Cons: The box says it requires Intel Core i5, i7 or Xeon. AMD Phenom or Opteron. Or later. This may be for 64-bit. I'm running an older processor, an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 and 32-bit XP SP3 and had no trouble installing the 32-bit drivers from the CD. This is great for me, but it does not indicate where the limits are.

Other Thoughts: Windows XP defaults are for low-res monitors, so, I had to raise the font sizes. In the advanced settings, you can change font size for menu bars, message boxes, etc. There are other font settings in programs like Notepad. Even after that, there is still plenty of thin, faint text, but not as bad. XP is old.

5 out of 5 eggs Good Video for an Old Computer 06/20/2011

This review is from: HIS Radeon 9250 DirectX 9 H925H128E1TOPN 128MB 64-Bit DDR PCI Video Card

Pros: Straightforward video card. Sharp display, good colors. Plays VLC videos just fine at 1280x1024 full screen. This replaced a flaky AGP card, and even though it's only PCI, it seems just as fast.

Cons: None. However, I chose the custom install for the driver and loaded just the minimum that I could.

Other Thoughts: The computer, I have here, is a 1.3 GHz Celeron, 1GB ram, running Win2000. It's still quick and responsive, which is why I keep it around.

Other Thoughts: This drive helped me rescue an old Win 2000 system.
