Great replacement video card for an older computer

by Charlie on 12/2/2008

I bought this card to replace a bad Radeon 9200 card on a 10yr old home built PC running Win98 SE that has an FIC VA503+ mobo, AMD K6-3-450, with an AGP2X slot. The card works fine with this setup. CD included with it didn't have Win98 drivers (only XP and Vista included), so I had to download them from PNY's site. Card produces adequate video for an older PC that is doing email and websurfing duties. Was supposed to come with a S-video cable (according to webpage), but did not. Works great if you are looking for a card that will still work with AGP2X, but be aware of the 250w minimum power supply spec if you have a 230w or 200w supply.
