When looking at the front of the board, it looks similar in nature to many other video boards that I have seen from the Prolink production lines. This actually is a good thing since you won't have to worry about the sound of a vacuum cleaner inside your case. Since this was one of the biggest downfalls to the new GeForceFX line, it is good to see that it won't be an issue with this model.
It was also good to see that the ports that normally adorn Prolink boards are all still intact. We have seen in the past that just because a certain chipset technology supports a feature, this in no way implies that every manufacturer will use it. You will have full access to a standard 15-pin monitor port, a digital monitor port to handle those chores if you have gone the way of the LCD, and an S-Video port to allow you to port the images from your system to a television. This has become quite popular when used in conjunction with a DVD player. Toss the movie in and port the image to a big screen TV set.
Looking at the memory shows us some Samsung modules offering no less than 128MB of onboard graphics memory. And while the memory used is only of the 4.0ns variety, we have to remember that this is a budget video card and not designed to run at breakneck speeds.
One thing that has changed is the presence of memory modules on the back of the video board. Whether there are concerns of cooling or just the desire for a cleaner look, the Prolink FX5200 has gone "Old-School" and put all of the modules on the front of the board.
