    If you need a PCI video card, it's a good choice. AGP is much better though.

    it depends.

    1. what is your current system specs.

    2. Are you upgrading your card or getting a new one. If you are getting a new from scratch then they are good cards. but if you are upgrading from say a Geforce 2 card then save your cash as there virtually the same card.

    If you got the capability to go AGp, its a pretty bland card, if your stuck with PCI though its one of the better ones availiable to you

    true

    But it would look so much nicer with a fan on it other then the ugly grey heatsink that's on there now.
