"Gr8 older card that beats the FX5600 in basic applications"4.0 starson by ritz_
Pros: Smooth scrooling of viewed pages, no fan so its quiet
Cons: Tough to compete with higher powered cards
Summary: For an older graphics card I found this to be a superior card when compared to a similar NVIDIA FX5600. I recently replaced my 9200 with an NVIDIA Gforce FX5600 looking for some increased performance but I was sadly disappointed. I don't do gaming as such, so when I tried viewing pages using the scrool feature of my mouse, it was abysmal. Choppy and jumpy, I instantly replaced it with the Radeon 9200.
Smooth, crisp graphics make this a super budget card for those that use their computer for the work environment or home internet browsing. If you are still using an older computer, this would be a gr8 card to own and with everything from computers to graphics cards going to supersonic speeds and prices, well lets just say that there are huge numbers of computer owners who don't spend their lifes trying to kill non-human aggressors or out maneuver the hordes in online gaming rooms.
Depending on what you use your computer for and you are not looking to replace that 2-3 ghz CPU, your graphics requirements are not in heavy duty graphic design and autocad but use it for simple tasks like researching the internet, online banking or just everyday tasks with an older (2001-2005) Pentium P4 or AMD processor working with Windows based applications, then this will be a huge boost to your eyes and to your wallet.
This card can be found on computer store shelves used and at online auctions for under $50. I paid $30 for mine.
So if you are looking for a work horse that can deliver with express mail graphics without the express mail price, then hitch your wagon to the 9200
