Good Card for the Money
4 Star Review   By member shootgarand - Sep 1, 2008   

Strengths: small size card for a small form factor tower, large heat sink eliminates the need for a fan (no problems with heat yet), very cheap, decent performance

Weakness: None yet

Can't beat the card for how cheap it is. I bought this card just so I could get my 5.5 year old computer running again. I don't do any gaming, so the performance has been good enough for me.

Best Video Card for this Price Point for HTPC.
5 Star Review   By member reemagupta - Dec 9, 2007   

Strengths: Dual Video Out. AGP, Composite Video out. DIV and VGA. What else... No Fan

Weakness: None.

This is by far the best card for this price point. Its AGP so I don't have to use my PCI card. Its fanless so completely silent. Its got dual video Out (DVI, VGA and Composite Video Out). This appears to be very suitable for older Mobo that has AGP slot. I am using it for my HTPC and so far I am very satisfied. Nvidia makes the best video card IMHO in the market. Not that its not for gamers.

Nice budget entry for HTPC and light gaming
4 Star Review   By member sononkyo - Oct 28, 2005   

Strengths: DX 9.0c; SM 3.0; Purevideo support; fanless; NV4x chip; low profile; DVI

Weakness: 64 bit memory interface means no performance in demanding FPS games

There are different market segments for video cards. You have the extreme, the mid-range, and the budget. When you look past at the history of the budget genre, you don't find much features to tout about. Well, fast forward to the present and we have Nvidia trying to tap this market once more with their NV4x chipset. This little graphics card is filled with many useful features. First of all, you have the now standard DX9.0 support but more importantly, shader model 3.0 support. Granted, performance wise, you are not going to get alot but for compatibility, this is a great start. Next, perhaps as commensurately equal, you have Purevideo support. Purevideo is Nvidia's propietary deinterlacing algorithm that builds upon the DxVA system that MS introduced many years ago. In simple terms, it cleans up DVDs to give you an excellent picture, equal or better to most standalone home DVD players. HDTV support is also built in and supported within the Purevideo specification. What is great about the Geforce 6x00 chipset is that there is hardware acceleration available for these functions. Of course, to get 1080i HDTV hardware support, you need to spring money for the 6600 and above chipsets. But still, with this card, you can offload DVD processing and simple HDTV processing to the video processor on this card, without taxing your CPU. Also inherent in Asus's implementation is the fanless and low profile design. Both are equally at home in extreme environments or in mini-computers where space is a premium. For the negatives, you can't overlook the 64 bit memory interface. This effectively limits gaming performance to simple strategy and real time games. You can play some FPS but the resolutions will be very limited. If you need to have some FPS action at 1024x768 or above, spring for the 128 bit version or better yet, the 6600 chip instead of the 6200 chip. With DirectX 9 SM 3.0 support and Purevideo features supported natively on hardware, this card will give you alot for the money. I heartily recommend this card and in general this chipset for those who use their computers primarily for productivity and videos.
