4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great graphics. mainly play COD / COD2. maxed out graphics on everything and its still smooth.

Cons: none really.

Other Thoughts: i took the advice from the other reviews and didn't even waste my time with the stock heatsink and replaced it with a zalman. everything works smoothly.

5 out of 5 eggsFast!!

Pros: Very fast card, easy instalation, and it isn't 3 feet long like some others. Easily overclocked with ATItool, stable consistent graphics. Looks good. Great improvement over a x1350/1500pro 256mb!

Cons: None really, the fan get's a little loud under heavy load, but you know it's working good that way.

Other Thoughts: Good accurate fan control when using ATItool. Mine doesn't get above 71celsius under maximum load. Running it on a ASUS Commando mobo, E6600, 4gigs 5-5-5-15 Corsair XMS2.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the cash

Pros: Good bang for the buck. The 512 ram comes in handy for high res. with AA and AF. Runs games perfect, can handle all i thro at it with 1680 x 1050 resolution.

Cons: Runs hot on stock heatsink.....Get aftermarket cooling.

Other Thoughts: OC to 675 core 960 mem. with atitool .26 Used aftermarket cooling zalman VF900 and Thermaltake solid copper vga sinks, CL-C0025

carefull to not have a bottleneck with your processor and memory, this card will be bottlenecked leaving some customers thinking its a slower card....

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent bang for the buck

Pros: This thing rocks. Plays all the current graphic intensive games at full quality settings with plenty fps to have a smooth experience. Ex; Dark messiah, BF2, Flight simX.

the core and mem clock throttle back in low utilization, and bumps up to spec when demand requires it, thats confused some folks in previous reviews. Its actually a nice feature. I use riva tuner to bump this cards core/mem clocks to 700/1925MHz. Since im water cooled, the temps stay in the low 50s in heavy use.

Cons: im not a fan of the catalyst sw, its generally unstable, but you don't really need it anyway. Fan gets loud when playing games, that why i water cool this thing.

Other Thoughts: My rig is a quad core ext, @3.0GHz, 2GB DDR667, 10k raptor. CPU/GPU are water cooled. 3dmark06 score is a little over 7600.

THis card is my first ATI product. I've been a loyal nvidia guy forever. But i wanted high performance and didn't want to spend more than 300 bucks.

4 out of 5 eggsnice

Pros: Great card.
No drivers issues, runs everything at highest quality without any lag (i didn't even have to overclock it). It is a very good card for the money.

Cons: it runs a little high, on ideal +50C +55C and +65C +70C highest I seen it +75C which is not too bad. Normal temperature should be +60C +65C.
So setup extra fan and you will be alright.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't change heatsink unless you know what you doing.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Bang-for-the-Buck!

Pros: As far as bang-for-the-buck goes, the X1950XT takes the cake. I dare you to find a better card for the money. All in all, this card cost me $xxx with the $xx rebate thrown in. Seriously, try to find a better value.

This card is also one heckuva performer, too. The 512 megs of RAM will really help out with newer games, especially if you want to use AA/AF.

Cons: Not a DX10 part, but then again, I personally don't believe DX10 is going to take off very quickly. It will eventually, but by that time there will be far better cards than the 2900XT or 8800GTX/GTS, so why waste money on first generation DX10 parts? Let the rich enthusiasts test the water with expensive purchases that depreciate in value faster than automobiles.

Other Thoughts: If you've got a large wallet, then by all means go for an 8800GTX or 2900XT (preferably the former), but if you don't, this is the card for you.

5 out of 5 eggsBest DX9 Cards

Pros: Super fast, 48 shaders allow you to turn all the eye candy on for even the latest games, triple-digit frames in Half-Life 2 Ep. 1, Counter-Strike Source, Call of Duty 2 with all settings maxed. good frames in STALKER with max graphics settings. i scored 13,000 in 3DMark05 in my C2D rig. i've had mine for 8 months and i still love it. you can run AA and HDR at the same time, which nVidia 7 series cards cannot do.

Cons: everyone complains about the heat, but it runs at the temps it was designed to run at. mine idled at 45C but the load temps bothered me too. don't ask why. i ended up getting a Zalman for it and now it's at 35/65 idle/max load.

Other Thoughts: please ignore the bad reviews from people who don't know what they're talking about. if anyone complains that this card isn't fast, it's probably because he has an old processor and doesn't understand what a CPU bottleneck is. the Radeon 1950XTX was the undisputed king of the DX9 world. if you don't care about DX10 or just don't want to spend the money on the new cards, you can't do any better than this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Awesome card. Runs everything very smooth. It looks pretty nice, too.
The card is big, but I can fit it in both my mid and full tower just fine. I found it really doesn't run too hot. Just have good airflow, and you're set

Cons: Does take up 2 slots, but most new cards do. Not really a problem if you have enough PCI slots for your needs.

Other Thoughts: Running AMD 64 X2 6000+, ASUS M2V, 2GB Crucical Ballistix DDR2 800.
Get over 200FPS in CS:S stress test with everything maxed 1280x1024.
BF2142 yields over 100FPS normal, 70FPS in combat, as average figures. Runs great.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card at Great Price

Pros: The price for power you're getting is amazing. Running 1440x900 dungeon siege 2 on a 19" widescreen lcd smoothly even in the most battle and magic heavy areas as well as command and conquer 3.

Cons: Big card, but that's expected when buying something of this grade. Not friendly with some smaller cases, get a mid tower or larger. Make sure your case has good airflow as well.

Other Thoughts: Second Generation video cards are such good bang for the buck, especially this one. If you want to run the latest games and not pay crazy amounts of $400+, get this card.
