Great Video Card with performance out of this world.

REVIEW BY: Eagle Reviewed  Jul 08, 2006
Great Price, Fast Shipping and a Great Graphics card. I just upgraded from the old ATI 9200 128MB PCI card, and i can tell you this GeForce card has better graphic capabilities. Easy Install. Runs The Sims 2 OFB and Halo 2 Flawlessly.

REVIEW BY: VTBubba27 Reviewed  Jun 27, 2006
Just got it in the mail- within 10 minutes I had the card in my computer and running. I can Play GTA San Andreas on mediumish settings at a good clip- Call of Duty and Sims 2 play well also. My only grief with this card, is that it has for some reason shrunk the viewing area on my monitor- it isnt by much but its noticable. Also streaming video is a little choppy, but I think i can get that fixed by tweaking the settings. All in all a great card, and for $55.00 with no rebate you can't really go worng
