5 out of 5 eggsREAD ME

Pros: Great card. Runs Crysis on all high settings with 2 GB ddrII 800 and AMD 4200+ 25 FPS @ 1024x768 crank it up to 4x AA and 1280x1024 and it starts chuggin 10 - 15 FPS. Fine with me for the $$ -=- Works to cool lower half of case.

Cons: takes 2 slots worth of space 1 pciex1 and 1 pci really. No manual, no proof of purchase. Keep your receipt. 256 MB version.
-=- Requires 8 pin power connector for OC. -=-
Works with the six pin though. From other reviews I have read I gathered that this card needs to have the 8 pin connector, or at least have the 2 ground slots(open slots when using the six pin) grounded in order to unlock the overclock. Black wires are ground.

Other Thoughts: 129.99 for this card? Great deal. Runs just a bit higher performance wise than the 1950 Pro card I paid 179.99 for back in July 07 6 months ago. Pair it with the TA770 from Biostar which has the AMD chipset for a great machine

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!!!!

Pros: Work right out of the box. I got 2 of them, but waiting for my psu to come in. Don't have enough power to crossfire both of them. I've got a Cooler Master 600 Watt. But i'm geting a Hiper 880 Watt.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Newegg shows GDDR3 mine is show GDDR4, Newegg shows 256-bit mine shows 512-bit. But there's nothing wrong with that!!!

4 out of 5 eggsHD2900GT

Pros: The card is much faster than any other card in its price range, and if fairly over-clockable. 600 core and 800 memory stock to 750-800 core and 1000-1100 memory.

Cons: Almost no actual support for over-clocking at all, even with 3rd party programs. Some sites reported 240SPU and 16ROP, but in actuality it is 240SPU and 12ROP as discovered by comparing fill rate to a 2900XT at identical clocks.

Other Thoughts: Not bad for the price. 60% of a HD2900XT performance wise (accounting for clock and shader deficiencies). Can be made to perform at 75%-80% the speed of a HD2900XT with over-clocking, given that you have the patience to tweak the card to its full potential.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plugged it in, restarted, installed the drivers - worked like, and continues to work like a charm, both in XP and Vista. Runs the video games I want it to (though I haven't tried games as demanding as Crysis, for example). Came with an abundance of cables, ATI Driver CD and PowerDVD, no manual of course.

Cons: HEAT. This thing is hot. And the card is large. It's longer than my motherboard, and barely has clearance in my (admittedly smaller) mini-tower. Also, I had to buy a new PSU for this card.

Other Thoughts: Not really advertised but important when considering purchasing this card: 1)Requires "connection to 450 Watt (550 for CrossFire) or greater power supply with 30A available on 12V line with 2x4-pin PCIe power connectors is required." 2) The card is approximately 9 and 1/2 inches long and a little over 1 and 1/2 inches wide, so make sure you have space. 3) Make sure you have adequate cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat card, but with some bugs

Pros: Very good video card for the price. If you're just planning to buy one for the time being that allows you to play the latest games with a low price, this is a fine card for that. Runs cool, fan keeps temp. down quite good.

Cons: Drivers, drivers drivers. Very buggy. When you install this card for the first time, just use the CD that comes with it, and click in Express Install, those drivers are marvelous to current 8.1 that they have out there right now. With the new drivers I get a bug that when i exit full screen applications such as games Windows crashes and your computer reboots. I uninstalled the new drivers and installed the ones that came with the CD everything looks fine. Also how much power this card uses. It needs a 8-pin PCIE to enjoy the full capabilities of this card. Although you can use a 6-pin, but you cant enable ATI overdrive, which means you will get no temp. monitor.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if it's my case or just these new ATI cards, but they don't quite line up with the screw wholes in the case. I asked a friend who bought a new visiontek radeon HD 3870, he had the same problem. Not a biggie though, you'll be able to improvise. My guess if you wanna spend a little more, and you know for sure that your motherboard supports PCI-E x16 2.0 then just go with the 3870, it has better quality and performance and uses all of its features with just a 6pin power connector.

4 out of 5 eggsLoud as a plane

Pros: If you get this card around 120 Dollar and you don´t care about REALLY loud fans it is a good deal.

Cons: Did I mention the fan? And it needs a lot of power. I have a small UPS. With my old GF6600 I could work around 10 minutes on that battery. Then I changed only the video board and now it beeps one time and then shuts down if on battery. Drains the battery in less than 1 minute.

Other Thoughts: There wass a 6pin PCI Express connector included in my package. This card runs with the 6 pin connector. But it disables the overdrive feature when connected to 6 pins only. I have an Antec Trio 430W power supply and that has no problems with the 2900gt.
I guess they included the 6 pin connector instead of the 8 pin connector to prevent people with weak noname PSUs from overclocking.

5 out of 5 eggsBADA33 VIDEO CARD

Pros: BIG RED VIDEO CARD WITH BLOWER, STAYS COOL AT STOCK SETTINGS. TAKES UP 2 ROWS AND DOESN'T RUN INTO ANYTHING FOR ME.

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: 8 PIN PCIexpress POWER CONNECTOR COMING FROM POWER SUPPLY REQUIRED... INCLUDED ADAPTER WAS FOR ANOTHER VIDEO CARD. (FOR ME AT LEAST) NO BIG DEAL, SINCE YOU SHOULD HAVE BADA33 POWER SUPPLY FOR BADA33 VIDEO CARDS!!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Deal!

Pros: Huge improvement over stock graphics chip on motherboard. Allows proper native resolution on new Viewsonic 22 inch LCD screen. Allows highest setting on WoW will still preserving excellent frame rate. Box included all the adapters, accessories, etc. including Crossfire bridge and power adapter cable. Excellent performance. New Egg has by far the best prices anywhere, especially on video cards! I find lesser cards (X1650s, 2400s, etc) for as much as twice the price at big box brick and mortar stores. Prices and selection in this product category are ridiculously better than any other source!

Cons: Fan is noisy. Card is really big. I had to move SATA cables and slightly modify stock OEM case to fit. Card was not packed correctly. It was loose in a big-ish box with no packing materials. I was afraid it was damaged upon arrival, but it works great.

Other Thoughts: I would not consider purchasing a video card from any other source except new Egg. Price and selection are outstanding. ATI is definitely the leader in price vs performance. I only buy AMD/ATI!!
