Budget fans rejoice1/15/2006 5:04:39 AM

Pros: It is a great card for a gamer on a budget, and runs Doom 3 fairly smoothly at full settings. I couldn't stand integrated graphics any longer, and this should hold me over until I buy a high-end graphics card, which may or may not be for a while. I like the blue color.

Cons: It's a little warm, so what? Also, save yourself some time and download the drivers from the Nvidia site instead of from the disc, which are old.

Overall Review: - Windows XP Home - AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.8 Ghz - PC Power and Cooling Silencer 470 ATX - Maxtor 80 GB 5200 RPM - PNY GeForce 6200 256 MB AGP 8x - Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS - (2) G.Skill 1 GB PC3200

The sound!1/15/2006 4:50:21 AM

Pros: Great sound over my integrated onboard sound. I could hear the difference in quality even when I was only using two stock stereo computer speakers. Playing games seemed a bit faster also! I could tell exactly where the sounds were comming from. The features like the added effects and EQ make the card a great finishing touch.

Cons: none yet.

Nice.1/15/2006 4:35:59 AM

Pros: It runs the speeds it says it can, and boosted my speed and performance quite a lot. It works really great for what I payed for it. New Egg is fast in processing orders.

Cons: None that I can see... It's only 6 layer PCB, but that's expected for RAM at this price. UPS could have been a little faster, but it's no big deal since I was not in a major hurry or anything. FedEx is better.

Overall Review: Being PC3200 (400 Mhz), it's a huge improvement over my old single stick of Hynix 256 MB PC2100 (266 Mhz) Doom 3 runs almost completely smooth on full settings now. - Windows XP Home - AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.8 Ghz - PC Power and Cooling Silencer 470 ATX - Maxtor 80 GB 5200 RPM - PNY GeForce 6200 256 MB AGP 8x - Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS - (2) G.Skill 1 GB PC3200
