2 out of 5 eggs[Revision] Does not work in Linux, after so long

Pros: For Linux, none.
The graphics card can run in HD mode with 24-bit colors, but this is old news. This was mainstream back in the early 2000s.

Cons: The card is glitchy and slow in Linux.

The radeonhd driver (open source drivers not made by AMD) is underdeveloped. There are glitchy black boxes that show up at random events, such as clicking the GNOME 3.0 Applications button. These glitches usually show up in the Applications menu search box.

So I installed the proprietary driver released by ATI, which is the fglrx driver. It fixed the black-box glitch, but improved nothing else.

One of the remaining annoyances: All fake-2D operations (2D run through the OpenGL 3D pipelines) are extremely glitchy. When you move a window, it will move smoothly for a few frames, then it will freeze, and then it will pop back into motion after a second.

The 3D animations in GNOME 3.0 might work smoothly, but the fake-2D is horrid.

Watching youtube videos in Chrome (Chromium) and Firefox and clicking on some things will freeze up the card for a few seconds, just like the fake-2D operations.

It's a huge annoyance, and I am incredibly as

Other Thoughts: I will be switching to nVidia for my gaming needs, as ATI isn't working hard enough on their Linux audience. They need to wake up!
This isn't the '90s any more. People use Linux now.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Inexpensive
Cool
Played every game I threw at it
No external power

Cons: Had to settle for lower graphic settings

Other Thoughts: I have since started another build based on the GTX 570. This card will play every game you throw at it, just expect to tone the eye candy down. Especially if you game at 1920x1200

3 out of 5 eggsDriver support lacking in LINUX for certain 3d games played with Wine

Pros: This is a fast card, very quiet, fits great in my microATX case that has limited room for add-on cards. I did not realize the GPU cooler on this card was by CoolerMaster until it arrived, which was a happy surprise.

Cons: I purchased this card as an upgrade to improve performance in Star Trek Online during ground missions. I run the game in Wine on a 64-bit LINUX installation and the game used to run ok, albeit with slowness & stuttering during certain missions, on my previous video card, a Radeon 2600. With the new card installed, animated character models do not render, although their shadows and held objects can be seen. The characters themselves are invisible. The latest AMD Catalyst driver release that came available the day after this card was delivered to my home does not fix this problem. The workaround is to disable OpenGL shaders (GLSL), which has the unfortunate side effect of disabling reflections and reducing lighting to bare minimum. I could have achieved a similar performance increase with my old video card by disabling these features manually. Based on my research this issue appears to affect all 5000 series cards in LINUX and Wine.

Other Thoughts: If you are a Windows user, this card is an excellent purchase for the price and will have a low impact against your power supply. I'm using an 80+ certified 400W and purchased this card so as to avoid a power supply upgrade. ATI is working on a fix for this problem so hopefully this issue will be resolved in a future driver release, and then I will be a happy camper.

I also believe there needs to be a new definition for my level of OCD where I can't just let these issues go unresolved, and I refuse to take the easy way out (no I will not install Windows).

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Stable, doesn't require additional power even though I have plenty to spare. Not the most cutting edge but as a relatively economy cross-fire this has been great.

Cons: Does not include the crossfire bridge.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice little card with hdmi to dvi dongle

Pros: This is a very nice little card if you're looking to run 3 monitors or less or better yet buy 2 run them out of crossfire mode and you have 6 monitor capability.

Very nice little cards for the price runs well for just about anything desktop wise.

I haven't tried to game one them but I don't plan to either however I'm sure if you put the crossfire bridge on both of them it would game well too and you could just disable crossfire when you wanted to run the 6 monitors again.

Cons: I don't like how they give you a HDMI to dvi dongle when it looks like they are going to give you a DP to DVI out of the box for 3 monitors.

So if you wish to run 3 monitors you need to buy an active display port adapter for 26 dollars.

Most people have HDMI on newer systems so they should have just included the DP dongle.

Other Thoughts: Great price good card with great monitor support.

5 out of 5 eggsFast Card- quiet too

Pros: Fast at high details, lower power, and quiet. I think its a great card for 3D gaming, but the most hardcore 1080P 3D gamers playing the latest games may need a faster card. This one is great for the rest of us (Battlefield 2, COD2, Valve Games- all play great at 1280x1024 on my system).

Cons: none---unless you want 1080p with every option turned on and smooth as can be 3D games, for most gamers, this card is great, and it's great for Windows 7 too-

Other Thoughts: I like the new generation of cards, but keep in mind, to get the speed and keep power these cards were built only for PCI Express 2.0. Many boards still for sale are PCI Express 1, and it simply won't work.

1 out of 5 eggsGood card customer service BLOWS

Pros: Card worked well in all areas. Still very quiet. Little heat at the time now it generates no heat.

Cons: Card failed after 2.5 months. Tried to submit a warranty request and was denied. Said I was out of the warranty registration period and since I submitted the mail in rebate my warranty was no good WHAT???.... Called them about the request and they still wouldn't budge.

Even the mail in rebate was denied saying I was out of the rebate period. Even though I had all proof that I was in the rebate period and I had mailed it within the timeframe. I even had proof that they received it on time.

Other Thoughts: I even went to the BBB and they were NO help. They just repeated what Sapphire said to me. They did almost get me the rebate but somehow my online rebate tracking dates changed to a later date (after I had purchased the card). I still have paper copy of the rebate too. Still got nothing.

BUYER BEWARE

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice card for the money!

Pros: 1 Gig of memory for the time you need it. The ports you really need today and adapters for at least one step back in time. Nice quite cooling system with Arctic cooling. Works well with my LCD TV's other flat screen TV's finding the correct resolution every time. The Eyefinity is a cool idea that I will try in the future.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Before this type of card came out I used to take off the jet turbines they put on for coolers. Less money spent! :) Hadn't realized there was a 1 gig memory model before this purchase and bought a number of 512 models but I really don't tax the memory anyway so it worked out OK. Learned a good lesson, Pay attention! I was looking at price but you Need to look at all the details, I'm good at that but I was lazy with the details! The 512's were my fault! 10 bucks for another 512 is a pretty good deal! If I were a rich man...
