I've Noticed Better Performance From My Computer Handling Videos Now.

Cons: Pricey But It Was The Best Value Out There.

Other Thoughts: Very Happy With This New Card

4 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Detected my TV without any hassles.

Cons: Had a little trouble finding Win7 drivers for it.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for a media center PC. I only gave it 4 eggs because of the driver difficulties. Other than that, it works well.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great in Dell Optiplex GX260

Pros: Worked great for "resurrecting" a GX260 as a Windows 7 computer. Downloaded the latest Catalyst driver from the www.sapphiretech.com website (need the www, btw) dated Aug 5, 2010, and it works great. The Windows Experience Index is 3.6 for Graphics and 5.4 for Gaming Graphics. Aero seems to be working fine.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I couldn't get any video at first. Maybe it wasn't seated properly. After I re-seated and toggled the Computer BIOS settings for integrated/auto Video to "Integrated", the computer recognized the AGP card. Go figure?

5 out of 5 eggsNew life for an old P4

Pros: This card replaced a dying 9800 Pro in a Dell Dimension 8300 for my fiancee. Her "Outlook and SIMS 3" computer (she has others).
"Brutus" had all 4 slots filled with OCZ, a decent Dell case, a 305 watt PSU, and a couple of optical drives. Seemed a shame to let him die.
This card fired up a Samsung Syncmaster 226 flawlessly, via DVI.
The card swap took seconds, and the update was simple.
Brutus can't use the 64 bit the card offers, but at 32 bit higher resolutions than before were achieved. Detected and loaded at 8X too.
And the case fans don't run on high all the time now!
Ordered Monday night (after 5:00 MT) from Newegg. Arrived today, Thursday, VERY well packaged.
This card is a value. A great card for old AGP systems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This Computer
Dell Dimension 8300 (305w PSU)

Samsung 226 (dual)

2 out of 5 eggsCheap, but crippled

Pros: Inexpensive AGP card.
Can run older games at medium resolutions.

Cons: Does not permit Flash GPU acceleration with Flash 10.1 and Catalyst 10.6. Good luck watching Hulu or Youtube at higher than standard def / windowed mode.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this to turn an older but decent system into a Boxee device, should have read the fine print about the HD 3000 series being hardware accelerated (only integrated, not mobile or desktop flavors). Thanks ATI.

4 out of 5 eggsAbout what you'd expect.

Pros: Helped extend the life of a very old P4 system used as an HTPC and 46" LCD TV. Will play 1080p using hardware acceleration with only an occasional stutter with Windows 7.

Cons: Couldn't get the HDMI audio working with the old Asus P4P800 motherboard. Spent hours in the attempt. Finally, threw in the towel and used direct audio cable to the tv and VGA output which works very well.

Other Thoughts: Using Pure Codec (CoreAVC) to get hardware video acceleration with the 3450. First used the ATI Vista drivers that came with the card. Then tried the latest online Catalyst drivers to no avail - HDMI audio still not working. I always expect these kinds of problems when working with legacy equipment. Plan B, however, is up and running with minimal quality issues.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price and the performance

Pros: I purchased this card on 05/25 and got it on 05/27. So +1 egg for newegg. I upgraded this card from the old nVidia Fx5600. I think this card is pretty good, I can play all my games smoothly now with medium to high settings. The heat sink has no fan so no noise. The install was rather quick and easy. I used the driver provided in the CD included. If you're looking to upgrade your old AGP, you could buy this for the price, but I suggest that if you have a good CPU (or not so bad CPU, mine is PIV 2.8 GHz), you should buy higher product like the HD 3650 or 4650. The reason I buy this is that it's the cheapest upgrade and I'm gonna buy a new PC soon ( in a year?).

Cons: Because it has no fan so the card gets overheated really badly and really fast. The temperature when there's no activity is about 60 C. If this goes on for a long period of time, the card might eventually stop working.

Other Thoughts: My system:
P IV 2.8 GHz
3 Gb Ram
512 Radeon HD 3450
200 HDD
Oh, and my mobo is really old, P4P800.
