Good backup card in case you want to sell your card, or rma whatever.
But I don't think it games very well, it is just a little better than onboard.

I have a 8500gt for a backup, bought it for 20 bucks.
Good card for alot of different uses other than gaming.

Slow but still a dx10 card. Not bad for back up. I got one of this for back up few days ago while I am looking for next GPU.

8500GT right? the 64-bit one or 128-bit one? On the 128-bit one, gaming on less demading games like CS or BF2 ain't too bad.

thanks guys I meant to buy a AGP videocard for a friend But this was cheap and brand new in the box so I picked it up instead.

I think i'll use it as my main and sell my videocard I don't game anymore And by the time I will game on pc and buy the newer cards GTA4 will be out on pc.
