Pros: Excellent price and performance.
Overall Review: Purchased for an employee's system to help drive a new 19" LCD. Does everyhting it needs to do.
Pros: Installed this on my old HP Pavillion 8765C to replace the defective 16mb Nvide Vanta card that came with the machine. The ASUS K7M motherboard only has a 1X/2X AGP slot but this works with out a problem. I tested download speed at Toast and the speed double from the prior card.
Cons: The drivers that came with the card would not work with XP (even though the documentation said it would. The machine would only boot in safe mode. I downloaded the drivers from the MSI website (from another machine)and installed them. It works great!
Pros: Installed effortlessly on Dell Dimension 4100. Worked out of the box as per the Quick Installation instructions.
Cons: The MSI Live Update 3 utility corrupted my PC and I had to reboot in Safe Mode to uninstall it so my PC would boot. I don't recommend installing this on a Windows 2000 OS.
Pros: Good for my secondary computer. The overclocking feature is a nice touch. Although, it does not include a fan for cooling the GPU. Easy install.
Cons: None as of yet.
Overall Review: MSI has a strong image issue. The heatsink I recieved was in the shape of the letters MSI, it also includes a sticker to put on your computer to say you own the card. LOL.
Comments: I used this card to replace a blown out Geforce 2 card on a micron P3 733 running XPsp2 I bought back in 2000. The display wouldn't even come up with the old card so I plugged in the new card and the screen came up fine. Grabbed the latest drivers from nvidia's website with no problem. I can't imagine this thing is a monster for games but if you just want to do basic apps this card should meet your needs at a low price point.
Pros: Good card for a dedicated server. OK for low end browsing computers that have no need for high performance graphics. Reliable, no fan to worry about. Its like the [battery] bunny - it just keeps going and going and going and.... Installed fine in a Fedora Linux system. No problems for windows up to XP.
Cons: Don't expect performance from this card. It wasn't designed for modern gaming systems. Probably a little light weight for full graphics in Vista.
Overall Review: Very basic graphics card for very basic graphics displays. If any real graphics capabilities are required, spend a few more bucks and get a better card.
Pros: cheap video card price wise.. and if all you're doing is looking for a cheap card to replace a failing(dead) onboard video in an older system.. this is the card for the job. does exactly what you need it to without trying to shoehorn a monster card into a small/older chassis.
Cons: considering it's age technologically speaking, i figured it'd be a few bucks cheaper, but oh well. worked great in a pinch.
Pros: I bought this card for my old lab PC(4~5 year old?). It works great with linux. Let alone Windows, Linux device driver works great. (I'm using Gentoo)
