As this card is a low end card I really don't have a whole lot to compare to (and the previous low end card setup was with an AMD 64 single core machine). However I will try to portray the card as best as I can using the target resolution of 1024 x 768 with 2 x AA.
I am using a manual run-through of the games listed, exactly the same as in previous reviews, but doing it slightly differently to get some consistant numbers. As stated above the target resolution is 1024 x 768 with 2 x AA. All synthetic benchmarks are at the stock resolution.
For installation I have installed the card as usual , checked that the card is seated correctly and powered on.
I am using a clean install of Windows XP Professional SP2 with all the latest patches.
nVidia drivers used were 162.18
