Default Should I go for it???!

Hey all...should I go for this deal? The product is usually $80 but with rebates it ends up at $40. I can get a 1 year extended warranty for $13. So I ask this:

Is this board decent? Does it just use Nvidia components, or is it an Nvidia made by chaintech?

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=C460-7026

Will this card run with my mobo?

GA-7ZMMH

Are chaintech good cards for the price? Help me out guys...there's only six days left on this deal and it's while supplies last...

I think the 5200 will run in that board, but it will be a bit slower than normal, because your board has AGP 4x and the 5200 is an 8x card

I would say it is a pretty good card for that price

SWEET! I don't care about Vid card speed...as long as it has maxed-out that board I am fine....it is for my junk Diablo 2/dowload pc.

That said...can I find a 128 bit card for less$?

Are these boards decent for old games like Diablo 2 Cs and Q3?

40 sounds very cheap to me(it was my previous card).
Chaintech makes cheaps but equal quality compare to other manufacturers.
You should go for it !!!!
