2 out of 5 eggsOuch

Pros: This card was a great replacement for my old onboard GeForce4 MX. It gave me Shader 3.0, OpenGL 2, and a whole bunch of other things. I was able to run many games from 2005 back on max settings with around 20fps, and a few of today's games on medium settings with about 30fps. It's also good for overclocking. Dual monitor support!

Cons: This card has bluescreened my computer 5(!) times. The first four times, it was with the newest drivers on ATI's website, but the last time it was with the drivers that came with on the installation disc. The failures always were the same: boot computer, select XP Professional, and a blue screen pops up with a fatal system error in which the logon process cannot be completed. After about 2-3 hours worth of troubleshooting, I always come to the conclusion that it's the video card. I remove the card, uninstall the drivers, then reinstall the drivers for my old onboard GF4, and everything works again. I permanently removed the card from my system and will not purchase another ATI card again.

Other Thoughts: I have a horrible system, but everything works fine with the onboard mess. 250W PSU, nForce2 mobo, Athlon XP 3200+, XP Professional, 512MB DDR SDRAM.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Bought this card about 3 years ago and it just gave up the ghost. I have even been able to play Sins of a Solar Empire with this card

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Excellent card for older system. I'm looking to by the same card again to get me through until I build my new machine.

4 out of 5 eggsAn Outdated Masterpiece

Pros: Back in the day, this used to be a great card. I bought it for a carton of cigarettes brand new(don't ask) and it worked flawlessly. I was able to run EQ2 at medium settings, WarRock at high settings, and just about any other game from 2005 back.

Cons: The Catalyst drivers for this card were buggy at the time of usage. Most noticable of all was the fact that brightness/contrast settings did not carry over a reboot. This card is also very outdated, running on the legacy AGP bus and while I would definitely recommend it for an upgrade on an aging PC, the price is rather high.

Other Thoughts: For 50-70 USD more, you can upgrade your motherboard to one with a PCI Express slot, get an 8600GT, and at least 2gb of DDR2 low latency RAM. I wouldn't recommend buying this as an upgrade for an aging PC anymore unless the price is lowered drastically from, at the time of this writing, 79.99 USD.

3 out of 5 eggsGood save for a dying old pc

Pros: It will fil the AGP slot if you make it.

Cons: Out dated, overpriced and driver install is terrible.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card to replace an origonal voodoo3 16mb card in an old p3 833 system. Installed great, was an incredable upgrade obviosly. So I built a new pc just for this card. biostar K8M800 micro atx,AMD 64x2 3800+2.0g,2gigs ultra pc5300 667mhz ddr2, 500w Basiq psu, Xion blue led game case, and a masscool sink/fan. I put the card in and it crashes after 3 to 5 minutes repeatedly. Updated drivers, reinstalled, CRASH. Took the card back to Office Depot, traded it for Geforce fx5500. Better card easy install, runs great. Just replaced it with a eVGA Geforce 7600GS. WOW. for 10$ more than what I paid for this piece of well. 3 stars

5 out of 5 eggsFavorite Classic VC

Pros: Works like a charm after 4 years! Ran everything i've thrown at it: BF2, Doom3, and COH are the last games i played with this card and astonishingly enough, it's still good!(?)

Cons: AGP but back in the day when AGP was the best, it was an excellent card. It's out of date so skip this one and start upgrading your system to PCI Express.

Other Thoughts: I got this on a walmart shelf back when it was first released (at least 3 or 4 years ago?) it was my first hardware upgrade ever and it worked wonders for me! i upgraded my system twice before this Beast got too old for me, and i had to move on :-(

4 out of 5 eggsIt's worked for me

Pros: I've been gaming on this card for nearly 3 years. It was the first computer upgrade I had ever done. It runs most of the newer games on atleast medium settings.

Cons: It's pretty old now, I wouldn't buy it today, even for a buget build.

Other Thoughts: The thing has given me no trouble over the past few years and heat/power consumption have never been a problem. Currently It's my CPU (pentium 4 2.4GHz) holding me back on gaming not this card!

4 out of 5 eggsBang For The Buck

Pros: Two Years Ago I Got This For $$$, Worth The Money If I Look Back At It. Drops Slowly In Price.

Cons: Windows Vista 64x Crashes, Driver Errors Are The Cause, Noticed The Problem In DreamScene.

Other Thoughts: Use This As My Home Movie Center, Hook It Up To The TV Using S-Video Or Converter. Runs At Default 29 or 30 Hertz.

2 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: the only pro's about this card is that its dirt cheap. It will play counter strike source half life 2. and some other games.

Cons: doesnt play f.e.a.r too well. its only 4 pipelines like people said. ram is horrible. the s video port goes bad after like 1 month. same with my other ati. Cant run game son high detail unless u want lag. The card cant be over clocked very well. and if it works it will stop about 11 mins later

Other Thoughts: get yourself a better card. Aim for nvidia. i have had 6 ati's and i have learned my lesson. I own a 9800pro by powercolor which is an ati. its ok. not so bad. but still nto good enough and to top it off. driver issues. and the s-video goes bad after a month.
