XFX GeForce FX 5200 Video Card
4 Star Review   By member prxray - Oct 5, 2006   

Strengths: Clear crisp video, inexpensive, easy to install

Bought this video card to be able to play graphic intense video games. It has performed well, was easy to install and provides clear and crisp video of every game I've played. I'd recommend this card to other buyers.

Very Good Value
5 Star Review   By member rfung - Aug 25, 2006   

Strengths: It Works As Advertised.

Weakness: None.

After reading the previous reviews, my initial reaction was that "it sounds too easy". But after installing this card, I can only say "WOW!". XP automatically installed it's own drivers so I didn't even need the included driver CD. Now I can use my Viewsonic monitor on DVI and at the native 1400 x 900 resolution, so that circles are perfectly round again. I don't play games so I can't comment on how it will handle games. This card is very good value for my purpose. I hope it lasts a long time. Five stars for this any day!

5 Star Review   By member deubie - Oct 18, 2004   

Strengths: Easy installation, great price

Weakness: Not the highest rated card for gamers

I had a TNT2 Ultra graphic card, and the newest games weren't compatible. Paid less than $100 for this card + a 2.0 USB card, so now my older computer should keep up with the newest games for another few years, by then time to get a new computer. So...consider this a good "band-aid" for an older computer, and it should make the old Dell last a few years longer.

4 Star Review   By member TheFixer300 - May 19, 2004   

Strengths: very easy to install,and configure. awesome graphics, easiest card i've ever installed.

Weakness: none so far that i can tell. if one comes along i'll write another review. but don't hold your breath. looks like a weekness is not built into this card

this is really one of the better cards for the price, check out other 256 m/b AGP 8x cards, and you'll see this is the best. and it has tv out for enjoying everything on the bigger screen's of TV's

4 Star Review   By member Kindred - Apr 17, 2004   

Strengths: Very good quality video!

Weakness: I have found none at present!

First of all let me just say, even though I have just purchased this product, I have seen it at work in a friends computer and I really like the video that was created, the reality,the color imaging and graphics seemed to pull me into the screen, it's fun to turn out the lights and get lost in the reality of the images before me. Try it you won't be dissapointed!

4 Star Review   By member brandenl - Mar 29, 2004   

Strengths: leading technology

Weakness: could have a faster speed of memory

I like this product becuase it combines both quality and affordability. Many other products of this type our out of my price range but this product offers escentially the same specifications at a cheaper price.

5 Star Review   By member bborrevik1 - Feb 18, 2004   

Strengths: Fast, affordable, incorporates latest AGP 8X technology.

Weakness: None that I can find!

Purchased a 64MB ATI Radeon card 7 months ago in order to get a DVI interface to my new 19" LCD. NEVER worked right, totally unsat response from ATI. Dumped it and installed this new 256MB XFX GeForce card instead. Goes in (Win XP Pro on an Athlon 2000 XP platform) slick, no tech "issues", runs great, very pleased with DVI interface.

4 Star Review   By member Squall_L_FF8 - Jan 27, 2004   

Strengths: Easy to install and process only takes 5-10 minutes.

Weakness: Some compatibility issues with Windows, but can easily be fixed by downloading the updated drivers online.

I upgraded from a Radeon 7000 this was a major improvement graphics wise. I bought this card because I have Final Fantasy XI. There is almost no lag when I play that game with this game. In the end, this is a great card for about $90.

Strengths: This is a great video card for the price.

Weakness: There are no known weaknesses.

The GeForce graphics engine is excellent. At under $100, you can't beat the price. I am very pleased that it supports DirectX 9.0. I have not experienced any problems with this video card. Setup was easy.
