4 out of 5 eggsgreat card for the $$$

Pros: 6200 in 3dmark2k5 on my 4400+ X2 with 2gb PC3200 Kingston Hyper X. Pretty good for a C-note and a bit of change. Very nice card I'd buy again.

Cons: Stock cooler is loud, heavy, and ineffective. Top temp hit 90c playing San Andreas at 1280x1024 4xAA 4xAnsio. Zalman cooler dropped peak down to 50c. People who design coolers at Saphire must be der der derrrr!

Other Thoughts: Get this card. Get the Zalman VF900-CU to put on it. It sent my max temp of 90c to a max temp of 50c. Those numbers are so amazing they don't look true and I'm sure you laugh when you see them. But I build dozens of systems a year and have for a LONG time so I'm about as good as it gets and trust this-the Zalman will get this thing's temp in check. It's WORTH the extra $. Oh and the Zalman weighs 186 grams. Stock cooler weighs 241 grams. 55 grams less for the Zalman, cools 40c cooler at peak. (yes I have a USB digital scale). Nuff said.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great card for the price, last years top of the line card, overclocked mine to 590/630, runs really hot, make sure you download ati tools.

Cons: Runs really hot, still awaiting mail in rebate check. Who knows if i'm gonna get it or not.

Other Thoughts: I'll take this over the 7600 or the x1600

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for the buck going.

Pros: Check the specs, this card blows away all X1600pro and down cards. Runs all the games I play at native res on my monitor 1280x1024.

Cons: Needs lots o' power..helps heat the house in the winter though.

Other Thoughts: Great card

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card Bad Drivers

Pros: This is a great video card...the specs says it all and the price is unmatched. I love this card and it isnt loud at all. Plays Ghost Recon Advance Warfighter perfectly.

Cons: Do not install the catalyst driver programs that comes with the card its horrible and causes lots of problems. I've read online about the problems with ATI catalyst and its the same with this one. Throw away the cd that comes with it and download the latest drivers from ATI.

Other Thoughts: My suggestion is go get the latest drivers only and don't bother with catalyst. Go to



and go to the slow speed section and download the first portion which is titled "Display Drivers Only" and install those then it would be fine. If you want something to monitor your video card get ATI tool its alot better just google it

5 out of 5 eggsTry it, you might like it

Pros: I brought this card as a backup to my 7600 GT. I did not know what to expect because a few people have had to RMA this card. When I got it, I removed the stock cooler, threw some Artic Silver and a VF-900 on top and I'm done. Right now its overclocked to 580/600. I'll try for more later..

Cons: I guess the stock cooler is wack. I installed the VF-900 as soon as I got the card, so I don't know. Also you may need to buy a new psu because this card requires power (my 7600 gt does not require additional power other than the pci-e slot). This card does not support Shader model 3.0, but I don't play many games and I don't know if any of the games that I have support it anyway.

Other Thoughts: This is my 10 build and I am very satisfied with the performance of this card.

5 out of 5 eggsSuffices my needs.

Pros: Just look at the specs and then the price - you'll see that you need to buy this card. GDDR3 mem. 256-bit interface, no other card comes close to these specs at this price (except the x850xt PE, which, if available, you should buy instead since it's the same price).

Cons: Stock cooling is horrible. Spend twenty more dollars and get the ARCTIC COOLING AVC-AT5. Much better at cooling, and near silent, plus increase card longevity. Must buy for this card.

Price of the x850xt PE came down to the exact same price as this card shortly after I made my purchase. C'mon, NewEgg...

Other Thoughts: More than enough for my HTPC (which will play a few games, I'm sure).

5 out of 5 eggsHuge Value, great performance

Pros: DDR3 memory, 16 pixel pipelines for about a hundred bucks!. 8.2 GPixels/Second vs 2.3 for the X1600 which costs more, just because it has the new shader? This card is hands-down the best value out there right now.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I never ran the stock cooler, for under twenty bucks I bought this one with the card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835186129 . Take a look at the stats here: and you will see that this card is still an impressive performer.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Card

Pros: Great card. Gets the job done.

Cons: Hot! Fan control on card set way too low. Two slot card.

Other Thoughts: This card will do what you want it to with no problems. Maybe won't let you run newest games on high setting but you can still play them enjoyably. Excellent card for the money.
