5 out of 5 eggsSUPER GREAT - SUPER FAST

Pros: Plays BF2 at max. Great benchmarks - not quite as good as X1950xt - but a lot better than most. Quiet and cool running. Looks good on boards with a lot of copper plumbing.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Stuck one of these on my IP35 PRO rig - it was like - a finishing touch.

5 out of 5 eggssweet buy

Pros: very good performance for the price, the zalman heatsink rocks! it stays around 38-46 celcius i'll probly keep it and use it on my next graphics card. clock speeds are nice, i was able to oc core clock to 648 with ati tool, can't oc the memory but plenty fast. good for playing Lotro and most games on high settings

Cons: takes up an extra pci slot but most cards do nowdays, havent thought about getting another for crossfire for that reason.

Other Thoughts: the packaging was pretty nice, glad there was no damage from shipping thankfully, newegg delivered very fast :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: I got this card in December 06 and I have had no problems at all. This card runs everything I throw at it including WoW. I like the Zalman fan better then the stock fans I have seen. The card never overheats.

Cons: Price...I paid a bit more then it is listed for today, but it was still well worth it.

Other Thoughts: I replaced my x1600xt card with this when the stock fan on it died. It was still within the year so I contacted Newegg and got credit since that model card was no longer available. I used the credit to purchase this and paid the difference. Worked out great for me. Newegg ROCKS.

3 out of 5 eggsWill Have to Wait

Pros: Looks nice. NewEgg got it here fast...

Cons: Came with a broken screw/stud that mounts the fan/heat sink. Did not even open the inner package nor got a chance to try it. Hopefully not a common problem. RMA'd. Will have to wait.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg is great. Great selection, great prices, easy to RMA (although it does take time...).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A nice budget card, but still good for gaming. quake 4 and newer titles
run well. AMD just posted some new drivers on May 31st. It never runs too hot, and it's very quiet. I haven't run any game in less than 1280 resolution yet.

Cons: The only problem that vista users may see in an issue with the control center. I honestly don't know if there's a solution yet, but you can just install the drivers if you prefer

Other Thoughts: excellent gaming for a reasonable price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat overclocker

Pros: Good price, runs very cool at overclocked speeds (38C idle, 53C full load), fantastic overclocker. I definitely recommend this card, it is a great performer.

Cons: It is definitely a long card as others have stated, not necessarily a con at all, but do not buy this if you have a small case. It just barely fit in my mid-tower.

Other Thoughts: This card overclocks like a beast. So far it runs stable at 654/850. I used the latest atitool 0.27 and used the driver level overclocking. The model I received was a newer batch than what is pictured. The card has an aluminum heatsink on the end instead of a copper one, and it doesn't have the "S" anymore. This card also included the latest bios that sapphire offers so I didn't have to flash.

5 out of 5 eggsvery "COOL"

Pros: Very good card for the price. This card plays all of my games flawlessly in 1280x1024 without breaking a sweat, and without taking your ears away from the game......extremely quiet.

Cons: It is large. My PCIe slot is closest to my northbridge so i can't really say that it takes up two slots, but it certainly is long. I had to reorganize many of my wires to reach around the card. It comes within an inch or two of my hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Setup: Cooler Master Praetorian Case (mid tower, 4 80mm fans), Intel D955Xbk motherboard, Intel Pentium D 945 processor (3.4 GHz, 800 MHz frontside bus), Antec TruePower 2.0 480-Blue power source, Sapphire x1950Pro Ultimate Graphics Card (256mb Ram, 4 dvdRW drives, 1 3.5floppy + card reader drive, Western Digital 300GB ATA/100 hard drive, Western Digital 60GB hard drive (backup only)
2GB DDR2 RAM (533mhz, Cooler Master RR-PCH-S9U1-GP 92mm cpu fan

5 out of 5 eggsPerformance / Dollar Winner !!

Pros: Great performance per dollar card.
Runs faster than my x800xt with better picture quality. Much smoother, better colors and shading ect...
I'm not interested in 200 fps kind of card. More so quality over quantity. Never got it over 52 Celsius, and did I try.

Excellent!!

Cons: The Zalman fan is much louder than expected. I can hear it over all the other fans on 2 computer setups,...but does do the trick.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great package if getting a DirectX 9 card is cool with you.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Sweet...

Pros: Cards pretty awesome. Use for gaming (mostly WoW) but other high frame rate games work pretty flawlessly as well...Doesn't matter though, World of Warcraft is all I really need to survive Go HORDE!! Woot Woot. I do slight photo and video editing and it doesn't seem to hinder any performances either.

Cons: Power source kinda bothers me. its kinda oversized heatsink will take up extra slot. Cards kinda long as well. I've since got a larger case and have no issues with it though. Its quiet, but I could deal with a little more noise if it would keep it cooler, as it does get a little warm, but not dangerously warm.

Other Thoughts: Price isn't that bad.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

Pros: Its fast, its silent, it runs everything I need on my Samsung 22" LCD. I'm not an overclocker and I'm not a gamer but I still desire a fast stable product and this is such a product. Someday I'll go DX10, but there is nothing that needs it today so save yourself some money and buy this card... you won't be sorry.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: System: Silverstone TJ09-B, Thermaltake W0117RU 750 watts, Giga-byte GA-965P-DQ6, C2D E6600, Thermaltake Blue Orb II, 2 GB Patriot PC2 6400, Sapphire 1950 Pro Ultimate, 2 WD Raptor 74 RAID 0, 2 WD SE16 320 RAID 1, 2 WD SE16 320 JBOD, Creative X-Fi Extreme Gamer, 2 Samsung IDE DVD Burners, Atech W0117RU Card reader, 3 Scythe S-FLEX fans, Sunbeam Rheobus Fan Controller, SAMSUNG 226BW 22" LCD, Win XP Pro SP2
