Um, it sucks?
It's older, it was used for CAD-related stuff. Great in it's time for it's intended purposes but nothing to game with and not current. What more to say?Quigsby

If you're only surfing the web it would be sufficient, but so would an onboard solution.
Do you already have the card? I wouldn't buy it for that purpose because you could find something cheaper that would suffice. Does your motherboard have onboard video?Rig In Transit:->

I'm not positive, but I believe the V3100 was the equivalent of a Radeon X600. It would be OK to use if you already have it, but I wouldn't pay more than about $10 for one if you're looking to buy it (and even then I'd be rather disinclined to choose that over a more modern solution). Otherwise, you'd be better off just spending $25 for a Radeon 4350 or something. Assuming, of course, that you don't have onboard video with your motherboard.
