4 out of 5 eggsGreat midrange card.

Pros: -Cheap
-Runs Very Quiet
-Great Gaming Performance for Price

Cons: -Could be Stronger
-None Else

Other Thoughts: The card runs most games decently, here's one of my benchmarks:

Company of Heroes: 1440X900. Details: Mid/High
AVG FPS: 32-36

Keep in mind I am running VISTA and am SEVERELY bottlenecked by my other components, I have only 1 GB of Ram and a single core processor. This card on a better CPU and RAM could easily reach 50 FPS on details maxed out at my above resolution.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Video Card

Pros: For the price you just cannot beat this video card. Dual DVI and S-Video TV Out. Flawless installation in a Windows Vista 32 bit PC. Great picture and boosted my Vista rating over my Asus ATI Crossfire on board video from 4.4 to 5.5
Be certain to get the latest firmware and drivers from the Sapphire web site. ATI control panel allows for easy performance optimization. Good for moderate gaming but a lot of that depends on the other components of your system too.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Make certain you have a good power supply. You will need to use the power hook up on this board. Cooling fan and heatsink works great. Installed in a system with: Asus M3A78-EM Crossfire Board, AMD Phenom 9600 Quad Core CPU, 4gb DDR2 Dual Channel Corsair RAM, 600 watt Sunbeam PS, Vista Home Premium 32 bit Service Pack 2. Newegg Rocks!!

Other Thoughts: i emailed the ATI for the adapter and they wanted me to buy one from their website which is currently not even on sale. what am i gonna do

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal

Pros: Great value! Easy install. Much better than the on-board Radeon I was using. I am not using it for gaming, just needed to power my Asus VW246H (24") in DVI at 1920 x 1080 for business purposes.

Cons: None, so far.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to download the latest drivers from ATI. The disc included is a couple of versions old.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Easy to install. Wasnt DOA. EXTREMELY fast shipping. Better than my old X1650 Pro and my integrated AMD 760G Radeon 3000 graphics. I got the card at a steal for $37 with free shipping, which makes this card ideal for any situation, whether you use it as a backup replacement, your main card, or to put in a value rig you are building for someone else. I was able to run WoW with stable FPS running an average of 45-55. Maxed out older titles like KOTOR. Runs Neverwinter Nights 2 on all Med settings without lag (although in truth this title is a very processor dependant game that is very demanding on any system, so if I ever put that Phenom II [the max this board will support] in here that may make the difference as the card itself more than exceeds the requirements).

Cons: Not a tweakers card. I wouldnt recommend OC on this card as it becomes instable with the slightest increase to core speeds. While temps didnt seem to raise too much, the card did lock up and the pc froze forcing me to manually restart and return to factory settings on the card. For whatever reason, it is giving me a hard time at the moment with dual display as well. This could be a limitation of the MOBO itself. I had to go into BIOS and take off surround view just to get the card to function and let Windows load. I suspect that surround view also effects using dual displays, so I cant say for sure at this time whether it is a problem with the card or the mobo. Also, there is no listing of this card anywhere, even on the ATI and Sapphire sites. This makes it hard to make an informed decision for a purchase when all stats you need to compare arent present. This is the main reason I removed an egg, as the other two cons are really not that big of an issue.

Other Thoughts: I have used ATI products for as long as I can remember. This is the first time i have had a con like this with one of their cards. Still, in comparison to the problems Nvidia cards have with stability and compatibility, high cost, lower overall speeds and performance in benchtest, this card with its flaws is still the more sound purchase. I am running an ASROCK mobo with a AMD2+ x64 2.3 ghz dual core that I OC'd to 3.03 ghz...4 gigs of dual channel OCZ OC 1066 ram, this graphics card, and an hec 580 watt PSU. This build costs less than $400 bucks and works as a low budget gaming rig, with plenty of expansion opportunities to enable it to more closely compare to higher end machines.
Also, for anyone considering this card...here are the stats you cant find. It is indeed GDDR4 ram. The core clock is set to 725 and runs idle at 300, the memory clock are set to 1 gig and run idle at 800. It has dual ramdacs at 400 mhz. All said and done, who can beat a card at this price?

5 out of 5 eggsSapphire Dual DVI video card

Pros: Dropped in without a hitch and picked up my two DVI monitors. I went to the ATI site to download the newest drivers, no problems there. I realize there is another ATI card that has about 146 reviews for $2 less. The difference seems to be DDR2 vs DDR4. Eh, whatever this is worth I cannot tell you.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am not a gamer. This is for my recording computer, a C2Q that I just put together. My last card was analog and I wanted to switch to digital - and yes - the visual difference is huge. Image quality is much improved. Yes, there are better cards out there for more $$, but this is pretty unbeatable for my needs.
