5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card for Gaming or Vids

Pros: Great Video-use 7.3 Catalyst Driver for HDMI. Runs mp4 h264 at good speed. Used for Star Wars BF II no lag, 2X AA, pretty high settings and kicks at stock core clocks. Includes both mounting brackets.

Cons: none yet... High temps may be true for fan cooling.

Other Thoughts: I need to try more games to give a more thorough review.

5 out of 5 eggsA very nice card

Pros: The card puts forth very nice video and audio. Please see below, the card works great when properly installed and connected via. SPDIF out puts and inputs on the card. The owners responsibility is to get your computer to recognize and use it. Thank you Newegg for your outstanding and speedy service replacing my card. This card works great.

Cons: Some say it runs hot. It may run warm, however I am not pushing it with in depth games.

Other Thoughts: First I would like to thank Newegg for there excellent service. The first card I had was apparently defective.
To the party with the audio question. No this is not an audio card, it is a video card and one must have a SPDIF out put and connect the same to the SPDIF in put on the card.
There are no instructions for setting up the card. Inquiries to Sapphire were in vain, as the tech told me the SPDIF connection on the card was an out put. No help from them. How does a video card have audio out put. Inquiries to ATI were also in vain, the tech there told me the card with the connection made between SPDIF out and the SPDIF in put would not produce audio through a HDMI cable. For what it's worth, with the proper equipment and the proper connections to the card, the audio is outstanding on my 55" widescreen tv.
Any comments I had made below about the card was due to a faulty card and total lack of knowledge about the same from the manufacture as well as others involved with the same.

4 out of 5 eggsIs that SPDIF for audio in?

Pros: HDMI

Cons: not a 1900 series, or DX10

Other Thoughts: I doubt that this is an audio card, so my guess is that the SPDIF port is an input so you can get sound for your HDMI out. Info is lacking, anyone out there have one know for sure?

2 out of 5 eggsNice Card -- "HOWEVER"

Pros: The Sapphire x1600 pro HDMI card delivers "outstanding" video and text via. the HDMI cable to my 55" plasma TV. END OF PROS.

Cons: NO AUDIO. There is no audio transmitted via. the HDMI cable, be it "digital" or a string.

Other Thoughts: First. I fully understand digital audio and know how to make simple connections. The review that notes no problem with audio transmission with a HDMI cable, Please how did you make it work. My conversations with Sapphire, resulted in answers as "I DON"T KNOW" for every question asked! Conversation with an "ATI" tech noted that the Sapphire x1600 HDMI card DOES NOT and WILL NOT deliver audio, be it digital or otherwise via. the HDMI cable. (note: I know HDMI delivers audio, just not this card.) After four days of rechurching this issue, and I may have a defective card, I am rather gun shy to try another one.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card

Pros: SPDIF passthrough transmits digital audio through the HDMI cable to my HDTV. More than enough juice for Vista Media Center. Native HDMI - I can see boot screens and enter BIOS using my TV as a monitor.

Cons: Runs hot for some, but did not for me.

Other Thoughts: To address a couple concerns brought up by others. To the "no audio" guy - you know it's digital audio only, right? This is a simple connection, must be either defectice card or user error. On the heat issue, the card did initially run hot for me, until I started using the low profile fan in the lid of my LianLi HTPC case to bring fresh air straight to the card, now it is cool as a cuke. It just needs a tiny trickle of cool air and it works fine.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Card XPS 200

Pros: Good fit in the XPS 200. Must be popular sold out right after I ordered.

Cons: Heating-most lilely poor designed Dell XPS 200

4 out of 5 eggsGood Low Profile Card

Pros: This card fits perfectly in the Dell XPS 210 so I am sure it will fit in the XPS 200 as well. At the time this was basically the best low profile card you could buy. There is now a 7600GS made by several companies that comes in a low profile design and that card is likely better for gaming than this one. Installation was easy, Omega drivers work great with this card. At max resolution and high settings I can get around 35-40 FPS in Battlefield 2.

Cons: HEAT!!! The cooling can't keep up. I think this is a product of poor case design in the XPS 210 and a fan on the GPU that just is not up to the task. My card idles at 60C and gets as hot as 95C+. That is all without overclocking. So as you can see there is no room for me to overclock with stock temps like that. The only reason to buy this card is to get something that fits in a small form factor computer. It really is a mid to low end card for gaming.

Other Thoughts: I would like to hear how people have corrected the cooling issues. What fans have you added? Does the card still have the same profile with the addition of a different fan? How about some Newegg part numbers do those who have modded their card.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks nice- Dell Optiplex GX280

Pros: It fits in a Dell Optiplex GX280. Now I am able to play games more better then the Intel's integrated graphics. More FPS.

Cons: The fan on this does not keep up so buy a zalman mixed with copper & aluminum.

Other Thoughts: Why would I game with a dell machine? who knows.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for Dell C521

Pros: This is one of the few fastest cards, if not the fastest that you can get for small form-factor desktop.

Cons: Having to pay more than the non low profile version.

Other Thoughts: I purchased the open box (OEM) card, not the retail one, which doesn't include the low profile mounting brackets. Without them it's useless for Dell C521. I emailed Sapphire support, they immediately sent me the brackets for free, even though I told them the card was open box barebone version.

2 out of 5 eggsNot HDCP Compatible

Pros: Cheap, quiet, good acceleration.

Cons: Flaky over DVI and HDMI connections. Not HDCP compatible after much effort.

Other Thoughts: Not good for HD DVD / BD home theater PC. You have to install Sapphire custom drivers to even get it to work.
