5 out of 5 eggsgood card

Pros: Great graphics card for the money. Any casual gamer will make great use at of this card. Relatively small and doesn't require an additional power source. Received it the day after ordering.

Cons: Don't expect to play Crysis on max settings with this thing.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a budget card I wouldn't recommend anything else.

4 out of 5 eggsDoesn't like old stuff

Pros: Price to performance ratio, Plays most games at decent settings.

Cons: Made one of my old CRT monitors (the one I set up new builds on) do freaky stuff. I ended up setting it up on the L.C.D. monitor that I will be using, thereby causing me to have more downtime on the changeover (subtract 1 egg). The drivers that work are not always the latest release.

Other Thoughts: Still a decent card for general use and casual gaming. It just didn't like my older hardware (C.R.T. monitor.).

3 out of 5 eggsunoverlockable

Pros: a very good card. it has all the ports i need. 320 sharders. 512mb gddr2 memorys. play some games.

Cons: this card is not overlockable. i used the ATI control center. i just move up like 5MHZ more at the core clock. and the screen will turn all weird.. then restart the computer. then i try on the memory clock.. it does the same.. and now the proformance just alittle higher then my overlocked HD3650 256MB GDDR3..

Other Thoughts: still a good deal. good for all normal user. if u try to overlock this guy .. GL....

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: video card works well, cooler is big enough

Cons: mail rebate is a lie, when I mailed back the rebate form, they refused me with the reason of purchasing too early. How could I purchase the rebate product before I knew there would be rebate. World rebate center sucks!

2 out of 5 eggsBetter then onboard, but disapointed

Pros: It is better then the on board video card. Very nice to adjust the fan noise.

Cons: Drivers crash after playing a game for a while. The over drive feature will not play games or run benchmarks at the recommended settings.

Other Thoughts: First time buying an AMD/ATI video card in 10 years. This is not the quality that I thought it would be. I will try to downgrade the drivers from 9.3 to 9.2... But disapointed. and the kicker is the email address where the AMD program sends the crash events is bounced back to me.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: I was actually very surprised to see this thing handle cames so well. The fact that I'm not running DX10 helps out a bit though I'm sure. I can run Left 4 dead on maxed out settings at 1680x1050 with only a few moments of laggyness, pretty nice for fifty bucks.

Cons: none, really.
