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.

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.

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.

The only thing I want to add to what other reviewers have already said is that this card DOES support the 1920x1080 resolution in Windows XP Professional and probably other operating systems. I bought it to go with a new 21.5" widescreen flatpanel monitor and was unable to find a definitive yes or no on this one question, so I was very relieved when it recognized my monitor's maximum resolution and supported it. I downloaded the latest driver from PNY, so I can't vouch for whether the drivers that came on the CD in the box support this resolution. (When I buy computer hardware I always assume that there has probably been a driver update since they packaged it.)

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.

I purchased this card after purchasing a Windows Vista upgrade for my Dell Dimension 3000 (no AGP or PCIe slots, integrated on-motherboard video, Pentium 4 3.0 GHz, 2GB RAM). It installed in a snap, the directions were clear and well-written, and I was up and running within minutes. Windows Aero works and looks great. I'm not a gamer, so I can't vouch for how this card performs on really graphics-intensive games, but my flight simulators run smoothly.

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.
