    If you got it from Insight then it should have no problems.

    I use a G200 at work and actually prefer it to my 19" CTX, lucky git!!!.

    BB2K, you're right where I started from, ~42fps! Check www.tweak3d.net for the GeForce tweaking guide, using these with a little overclocking will get you to ~47fps in QIII and near 4000 in 3DM2K (almost to 4500 in the default bench). But you're okay for a first install of an SDR card. Make sure you have good cooling around the card if you overclock, a PCI slot cooler is a good start. Let us know how it overclocks if you try it. I know with stock cooling you should be able to hit 125/175 and get most of the performance you'll ever get. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the tip 23skidoo, I was just glad that I got the card running with no hiccups after reading the faq and numerous negative post's.

    Very welcome, just thought you should know that your system is about right. Do try the 5.xx series drivers though, your performance will go up by using these alone even if you don't overclock or do major tweaking. Your QIII fps will go from ~42 to ~45 which isn't too shabby, just don't look at the sky very much it gets "blocky" with these drivers.

    If you're not familiar with Nvidia cards and driver installation check out the driver installation section in the FAQ or the tweaking guide. I recommend uninstalling any current drivers before installing new ones, the performance seems better this way.

    GeForce is a peculiar beast, most installs go without a hitch and sometimes it never does seem right. Why that is I'm not going into, been there and done that. I think the best thing to say is that all this new technology needs time to mature. Glad you're happy with it, even an SDR card rocks when compared to most other cards out there.
