I use this card mostly for watching movies on my 42 inch lcd tv. Personally, I do not see any different when I was using the onboard video(vga). I'm using the dvi to hdmi cable. The only games I'm play is super nintendo emulator and Road Rash. They work well. It's in a P2.7gh computer with 1 gig of ram.
I am using these cards to support extra monitors on several PCs for quad+ screens with another EVGA PCIe graphics card. Best dual-output PCI video card out there for its value and performance! Highly recommended if you're looking to add a third or fourth (or more) screen to your setup. I've used several different PCI cards (matrox, nvidia, ati) from different third party manufacturers (HIS, Sparkle, etc), and these EVGA ones are very well designed and fit nicely, even in smaller towers, and run smoothly.
This car dis really good for PCI motherboards computers, but for gamning, its probably the best video card out there for PCI computers, easy to install and pretty quiet, i don't mind this card, would recommend.
