The Radeon X1550 based EAX1550/TD/256M from ASUS is a CrossFire ready card great for basic gaming or running Vista. The 256MB of GDDR2 memory is enough for most tasks. If necessary, the HyperMemory technology can access system memory for real-time graphic processing.

Dual screen ability lets you take advantage of some of ASUS’s unique features. You can run the game on the main screen and have the Gamer OSD and Game FaceMessenger utilities open on the other. Gamer OSD lets you chat and manage your cards settings without having to exit the game-overclock on the fly for maximum control of your game play experience. Use Game FaceMessenger for IM style in-game chats. The VGA and DVI-I ports let you attach any monitor you want. They also include a DVI-I to VGA adapter if you want to run dual VGA monitors.

Sometimes you want to watch movies, hook your HDTV to the DVI interface or use the adapter cable for component video connection. Or, if you’d rather watch the movie on your PC then the Splendid Video Enhancing Technology kicks in, enhancing color depth and intensity delivering a cleaner, clearer picture.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth every penny

Pros: Price. Performance. VERY easy to overclock. Runs BF2 on high settings flawlessly. CoD4 on low-mid settings with 30-40 average fps.

Cons: May get a bit unstable if you push it too hard but that's understandable.

Other Thoughts: Get this card! If you're building a budget gaming rig like me, this card is perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Fast

Pros: This card surprises me a lot with its ability to run games. BF2 runs with no flaw whatsoever on all high settings at 1680x1050 resolution, BF2142 also does with occasional lag during explosions. WOW, Halo, warcraft 3 are all old and run perfect. all of this at 1680x1050. this card overclocks like a beast. All for 30 bucks

Cons: crysis is playable at medium/low at a smaller resolution, supreme commander makes the card buckle too. It won't do dx10, is kind of outdated

Other Thoughts: Great card for a low budget gamer.. (some kid building a computer.. like me)

2 out of 5 eggsRead it

Pros: not very good. Asus is only good with mother board

Cons: It took more than a week to get it ( to Ny)
They send me wrong item ( x1300, an older version)
this card is horrible!

Other Thoughts: they refunded my money the same day because of their mistake!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing budget card

Pros: Easily overclockable to the limits of Catalyst's Overdrive utility, with a decent performance gain to show for it. 1500 3dmarks in 06, about 1/10th of the performance for 1/10th of the price. Much better than anything else in its price range. Anything from over a year ago should run on its highest spec with good fps, COD 4 and Crysis run around 40 fps with everything on low or medium.

Cons: For the price I can't really have any. The heatsink's thermal pads were displaced about a millimeter off, but it doesn't seem to effect the performance of the card.

Other Thoughts: I'm generally an nvidia buyer, but for a nice spare card or budget wonder ATi wins hands down.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat video card for the price

Pros: I bought this video card as an open box, and was amazed at what I got for the money. This video card has handled everything I've thrown at it. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, GTR2, Madden 08, even Battlefield 2 all at max settings. The card is extremely easy to overclock with ATI Tool. I run 654 core and 409 memory, any higher and it resets itself, but I think it's because I don't have any fan on it. This card is even great for those that use programs like Photoshop and such. I would recommend this video card to anyone that wants to game on a budget.

Cons: Did not come with the driver disk, but that's what you get for buying the open box.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Unlike many of my peers, I did not overclock this card. I used it in a budget build for a customer, it is running really well about 8 months later. Plays CS better than I expected.

Cons: It wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: I bought this item on 10/07/07 price for $48.99. Now the Item is around $30 and I highly recommend it for a budget build. It's not for hardcore gaming but works really well for the average user.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for the price

Pros: Its currently running a AMD athlon 64 X2 dual core 4000 with 2 gbs of ram and a raptor hd. The games counter strike and source ran with good performance just fine and the over-clocking opinions are a no brainer with smart doctor.

Cons: None
