    Very good value for money, January 9, 2007

    This review is from: PNY Geforce FX5200 256MB PCI Graphics Card (Personal Computers)

    This is an excellent card for owners of older or low end machines who cannot use newer PCI-E slots or AGP. I have a 3 year-old eMachine which this installed easily in and worked well with. Prior to installing this card, 3D games were jerky and nearly unplayable but this card fixed that up quite well.

    Be forewarned though that it won’t overcome the limitations of a sluggish or cheap processor. It will improve the look and feel as well as screen refresh speed. If you’ve got a poor integrated graphics chip which off-loads a lot of the graphics rendering tasks onto your CPU, this will help tremendously. It’ll also reduce the possibility of overheating.

    As a bonus, the card adds a video port as well as S-video (S-video is commonly missing from low-end PCs). S-video allows you to see your computer’s screen on your television as well as interface with S-video devices (such as video capture boxes and cameras).

    One note about installation though, you will probably have to disable the driver for your integrated video chip to get the card to function.

    Works on my old Dell E310, September 23, 2009

    Sim (Seattle, USA) –

    I picked this up recently for less than $30/- and installed it on my old Dell E310 which required a much needed boost. My machine have only PCI slots (and 1 PCI-E 1x) so a PCI card was obvious choice.

    Pros:
    – Very easy to install (whole process took less than 5 minutes)
    – Decent performance for my old machine
    – Supports 2 monitors
    – Boosted my Vista Experience score (for 3D) from 1.0 to 2.9
    – Vista Aero features now run flawlessly on my machine (they would not run on older card).
    – Vista installed drivers automatically (I had to do nothing as far as device drivers are concerned)
    – Movies and Pictures look a bit better (more sharper with better colors)
    – Very competitive price

    Cons:
    – Absolutely none so far

    This card thou does not seem to be powerful enough to run modern games, older games should be fine.
    Definitely recommended for home users who cannot upgrade to PCI-E cards.

    Update: Feb 2010
    I updated to Windows 7 few months back and this card is actually performing even better in Windows 7. For some reason after install, windows experience score (for 3d) came down to 1.0 but after few days and a windows update the score was boosted to 3.0. I am more than satisfied with this cards performance on windows 7…..

    Update: Dec 2010
    I formated my disk drive and reinstalled fresh copy of Windows 7. This time windows 7 was not able to find the driver. Downloaded and installed the driver from nvidia’s website (it was not there on PNY’s website) and it works absolutely fine now – very minor inconvenience, its still a 5 star. I also have 2 monitors hooked up and the whole setup works flawlessly with this card.

    Upgraded from integrated graphics controller and can see a huge improvement!, November 26, 2007

    This review is from: PNY Geforce FX5200 256MB PCI Graphics Card (Personal Computers)

    I have a Dell dimension 2400 desktop with an integrated video/graphics controller (Intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller) After reading the reviews on this site, I wasn’t certain that the geForce FX 5200 would be much of an upgrade over what I already have. But, I installed the card last night and it is great! I’ve been trying to play games like Half Life2, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, Counter Strike Source, NBA Live 2004, etc. on my PC for a while. And, although these games do run, there is a considerable amount of lag and slowdown which really ruins the gameplay. Especially in games like Half Life2 where there are a lot of things on the screen at the same time. Like a huge open area. Outside maps run extremely poor. But, the geForce FX 5200 gave it enough of a boost where the games run seamlessly, with little to no lag/slowdown. The graphics are noticeable better (lighting, textures, shadows). The load times are faster. I’m very thrilled that such an inexpensive card could make such a big difference. There were maps I couldn’t even play on Half Life 2: Deathmatch. But, I played them after installing this card and they run with no problems. I have never used a high-end graphics card before, so I have nothing to compare this card to. But, it is a huge improvment over my integrated graphics chip that came preinstalled from Dell.
