1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Card

Pros: NONE

Cons: Will not run NFS Carbon Canyon, World in Conflict or Supreme Commander. Much less COD4.

Other Thoughts: Direct 9 or 10 isn't important yet, the 1950 series is way better than this junk

4 out of 5 eggsCrossfire

Pros: When used in a crossfire setup these cards work well together.

Cons: I did a test VIA Windows Vista and when used under the crossfire setup, it rates less than when used as a single card setup. I have also have had some issues with some games. I am not sure if it is because of compatability with Vista.

Other Thoughts: Install one card, then the software, then install the next card. Do not set them up all at once.

3 out of 5 eggsCould Be OK, But Arrived DOA

Pros: With a substantial heatsink instead of a fan, this card was completely silent. It promised to be relatively cool, but I was not able to test.

Cons: Mine arrived DOA and had to be returned to NewEgg. The heatsink was attached with barbed, spring-loaded plastic pins -- too flimsy. As a result, it was too easy to lift or move the heatsink accidentally while handling the card. Hardcore enthusiasts may wish to mod the heatsink to get a more secure attachment.

Other Thoughts: The HD 2600 Pro is a terrific choice for silent workstations or home theater PCs. With very low power consumption, it does not produce much heat compared to an average gaming card. At least, that's what the reviews say. I'll have to wait for my replacement to find out for sure.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card for HTPC/workstations!

Pros: Great day-to-day performance for multi-media, multi-tasking, and workstation use. It's obviously silent, and the hardware HD decoding is beyond my expectations.

Cons: Runs hot. Mediocre dx10 performance.

Other Thoughts: I'm using 2 of these cards to run 3 monitors on my workstation/HTPC/360 media server rig with a q6600, and they make my day-to-day chores a piece of cake!

I can watch 1080P video, regardless of format with minimal load on my cpu, and for anyone besides a hardcore gamer, or even casual gamers, this card will absolutely knock your socks off.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the graphic artist

Pros: If you are going to upgrade to a large monitor, Vista, DX10 & need an inexpensive card, this card meets the bill.

Cons: This card would get a 5 if the cooling was better. The drivers that come on the CD are not the best either. If you are a gamer, this card may not be for you.

Other Thoughts: No problem booting into Vista, running 1920 x 1200 @32 Bpp or hooking up to HDTV.
On the plus side, it's silent. The minus, the passive cooling could be better & more firmly atached to the card.
If this is an upgrade for a Vista rig, download the latest drivers first, 32 or 64, you'll save yourself time & agrravation.

1 out of 5 eggsthis thing sucks and so does ATI.

Pros: it's cheap.

Cons: it sucks. ati sucks. so does amd, for that matter.

if i dont aim a fan at it, it thing has artifacts when its not overclocked, just running a 2D desktop.

i bought it to build a MAME cab... since all i ever hear from ATI users is how great their TV Out is and how Nvidia sucks. Well, no thanks.

The stupid thing boots in 480p in DOS if you run component output.. which is fine on a regular HDTV but I'm trying to simulate an arcade monitor here with component out to a 27" CRT....

when it boots Windows and goes to 480i... which is fine...but the bios/windows splash screen are all garbled and out of sync.... so it only works once u have the driver loaded.. how's that for some great "TV out"?

It wouldn't be so bad if their stupid TV dongle design didn't re-use the same pins for Component as it did for S-Video... but it's got this dongle that's like the NVidia ones..and it has this silly switch on it "TV" "HDTV" .. nice to know i also have the switch in the way of my conne

Other Thoughts: i'm going back to nvidia.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a wonderful card!

Pros: This video card was exactly what I was looking for...great graphics and no noise (fanless)! Very easy to install! Remember to visit the ATI support web site to download the latest ATI Catalyst software!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Windows Vista's 'Windows Experience Index' rates this card as a 4.8 for 'Desktop performance for Windows Aero' and a 4.9 for '3D business and gaming graphics performance'! This card performs equally well in both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista.

3 out of 5 eggsUsually works well, but flickers

Pros: Cheap, passively cooled.

Cons: Has flickering problem like those two other reviewers.

Other Thoughts: The ATI Catalyst software didn't think the GPU was running too hot, but I have gotten the flickering problem on occasion. Really annoying. If additional cooling doesn't help, I will RMA.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HDCP HTPC Card

Pros: Dual Dvi, 512mb, Passive Cooling for HTPC, HDCP, Super picture quality on my 720p tv (for DVD's [upscaling] & HDTV - HD looks better than my HD cable box), Great hardware decoding for mpeg2/vc1/h264

Cons: Only DDR2, runs a little hot - 55c-68c - doesn't seem to affect case temps much

Other Thoughts: I love this card. Works great in my htpc with e2140 (overclocked to 2.7ghz), gigabyte p35-ds3l, 2gb a-data ddr2 800

5 out of 5 eggsGood choice for a 2600 pro

Pros: Fanless. Fits in NSK2400.

Cons: They make it look like it includes Neverwinter Nights 2 in the package. It doesn't.

Other Thoughts: I saw temps between 55C and 80C
