Have the same card and am satisfied with it. Don't do much gaming. How
do you like yours for video capture -- any problems or inadequacies?

I'm very pleased with the quality of the captures. Simply stunning!
Delighted with the software bundle as well. The ASUS VCR program is maybe a
little flakey but I like it especially the video wallpaper option. Power
Director is great once its running! I have to reboot before I use it. Not
quite sure why but as long as I do I'm OK. I find my videos look better if I
capture at higher resolutions and then use Power Director to do the final
edits and rendering.

As for gaming its not too bad, certainly not as bad as some people make out.
I've an XP2000 with 512M running 98SE. Older games are great but some of the
more recent ones need more power than the FX5200 to run at higher detail
levels and resolutions. Rallisport Challenge plays really well but NFSU is
too much for it. I didn't buy it to play games, I wanted quality video
output and capture. Very satisfied.
