GeForce FX 5200 AGP 128MB Graphics Card.
I purchased this from a local shop around a year and a half ago for just £30. It is still on sale for that amount of money and rightfully so!
I have never thought of upgrading. Its just what I needed and will be all I need in the near future. When I built my computer, Graphics card was one of the last thing I thought about. Ok, I completely forgot about one of the most important parts. So what?
It has great memory. 128MB is plenty. I can play almost any game with it. I have used it to spend hours playing Wolfenstein Enemy Territory and allwais works to its full advantage. Its not over clocked, why would you need to? Its great, great detail, fast and effective. Installing it is just as easy as installing RAM. If you know what your doing then yes, simple. Stability is essential with Graphics cards, this one is no exception - Extremely stable. I also had to contact their support as I thought I had a problem with it. I later found out (Through my own brain) that it was a driver for another component.
Here are the full specs:
* 256 Bit Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) * AGP 8X / 4X (1.5V compatible) * 250 MHz GPU Clock * 128 MB of 128 Bit DDR Memory * 6.4 GB / sec Memory Bandwidth * 63 Million Vertices / sec Through PURE Hardware T&L (Peak) * 4 Pixels per Clock Cycle (Peak) * 16 Textures / Clock Cycle (Max in a single rendering pass) * CineFX Engine * Accuview AntiAliasing * Digital Video Interface (DVI) Connector * Flat Panel Display Resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 * Maximum Display Resolution of 2048 x 1536 @ 75 Hz * TV-Out Resolution up to 1024 x 768 * Full support for DirectX 9 and OpenGL 1.4 * DirectX and S3TC Texture Compression
Its absoloutly brilliant and is well worth the money.
