is it the agp or pci version? if agp, then...o wow, you got ripped, lookin at the price, please dont tell me that u payed 50 bux for that...i payed 40 at walmart for a geforce mx4000 just so i didnt have to use onboard, and the core is 275, mem is 400, and its cheaper than urs(agp version) and it can play some pretty recent games, dont got a dvi out, but got more power than urs got, for games, hl2, hl, cod, cod2, halo, etc, medium games...your card is in the same category as mine, so yea

1 pound is about $1.89 these days, so the 2/1 conversion is close enough.

lol I have that same card,

Its very low-end, would fit you for MMORPGs gaming probably or FPS games on low-medium settings [mainly low]
