5 out of 5 eggsGood Video Card

Pros: this is a great video card. The driver for this is very easy to find. I will post a link http://support.amd.com/us/psearch/Pages/psearch.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.14&contentType=GPU+Download+Detail&ostype=Windows+XP+-+Professional%2fHome&keywords=&items=20 this should help the others having difficulty.

4 out of 5 eggsSWEET

Pros: easy to install, satisfactory performance

Cons: a bit pricey for a low end card

Other Thoughts: End of the upgrade road for the wife's old Shuttle-X box. Performance on some basic benchmarks is 10x of the nvidia 6200 that it replaces. One egg down because the illustrated molex connector is actually a mini-molex (floppy type) and you have to go buy a power supply adaptor.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent card

Pros: +1 GIG,725 Mhz.
+Runs high textures and high res like nothing.
+AGP!
+supports new shader technology.

Cons: -Very and I mean VERY hard to find a driver for.It took me a couple of months before I could find a working driver,but I finally found one.I'm currently using CAT 10.10(not the agp hot fix,just the plain pci-e driver)along with the catalyst socket A patch specifically for an old socket A motherboard that I use(Athlon xp 2800+)and also the n-force2 5.10 unified chipset driver from nvidia.I have had no blue screens since.This is the only working config for this card and my athlon xp,every other config I've tried results in either poor performance or blue screens.
-Likes to overheat sometimes and dispay artifacts.I cure this by running slighty lower detail than recomended.After about an hour of playing TF2 it starts to over heat with everything maxed(res,aa,everything)if I lower the res one notch it doesn't do it.No problems in the L4D's and Half life 1+2.

Other Thoughts: This card is pretty good when you finally get it working.It's probably about twice as good as my 9800 pro that it replaced.It could use better cooling.Not the gpu itself but rather the memory chips that like to get hot.The gpu actually runs pretty cool(about 55 deg durring the heat of the moment in L4D2).This card is also not supported by ATI,that's why it is so hard to find a driver.Some mother boards you have to install the agp hot fix driver,I was able to install the pci-e version from ati's website even though I have AGP and now I have a signed driver yay!Don't overclock it because it already has some heat issues(Its already fast enough for AGP any way).I'm using a 450 watt power supply and it's more than enough.

2 out of 5 eggsOverheating

Pros: Not many.

Cons: The card overheats. I have a 600 watt power supply. Also the p6 connector pin came bent. Had the blue screen come up like 50 times. So I am buying a new card.

Other Thoughts: None
