    Depends on your definition of 'good'...

    I have the same card, except mine is PCI, which makes it even worse, and I have no trouble running today's games. That doesn't mean I'm not going to be upgrading in the very near future though.... :D

    It can run games with no problem, even with some graphics features turned up, but not at really good resolutions, and not at exceptional frame rates. It depends on what you want to use it for...if you're looking to play Doom 3 (when it comes out), then you'll need a newer card. Half-Life 2 will be playable, but only because it's being designed to run on slow machines as well as fast ones. All current games should be playable, at least the ones I've tried work.

    PsYk02, thats a good card to have if you're running some OpenGL games.

    You probably get good FPS, around 100 i guess.
