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.
- 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
- 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.

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.
Anyway, I am very happy that the card does what I hoped it would: allow an old Dell Optiplex 170L with only PCI slots play nicely with a new widescreen monitor.
Best of all, Vista drivers are included on the CD (and are also available for download from PNY's web site). Vista didn't think twice about hitting the ground running with this card. I'm very happy with my purchase.
