I bought 80 graphics cards 2 years ago to fit into Viglen PCs using Celeron D processors and having 1GB RAM, these were to replace the 64MB integrated graphics chips that were on my PCs motherboard. The main purpose of the upgrade was to allow users to view DVDs on their computers without the constant juddering that they were experiencing. This proved to be a very successful, low cost solution and allowed me to prolong the use of the computers. Without this DVDs were practically unwatchable.
Having now used them for several years I am well accustomed to the possible faults that can arise from using them. For instance out of the 80 that were installed I have 9 that show intermittent colour faults where one of the colours does not show, this normally results in a pink or green hue to the display. Another fault that arises on several devices is an intermittent black screen where the screen flickers black for a split second, this is only an issue on 4 out of the 80 bought.
Supports Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP
S-Video or composite connector
15-pin VGA connector
DVI (some models)
CRT2 (some models)
I had this card for about 2 years and i am talking form my own experience.
I would like to start of by saying that buying this card would be a stupid thing to do, if you like to play games, even old games.
And as a budget card i think there are cheaper cards out there, even better than this one.
Plus this card needs and older motherboard and DDR memory.
Which are both expensive because they are out dated and not in production any more.
This Card has lived its day and nowadays it is completely useless.
i have even tried it while making 3d graphics , but even a bit bigger amount of vertexes will cause it to choke for 10-15 seconds.
This it one of the weakest 128 mb video cards.
Only positive side in the reliability.
I suggest not to even consider buying this particular card.
And this applies to all GeForce FX 5200 Video Cards.
