5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: I was primarily concerned about the size and power consumption as this was going into a tiny Shuttle PC with maybe a 200W power supply. There have been no stability issues so far, and it easily runs WoW at 1600x1200 with ~30 FPS and all gfx settings turned up. The fan is also very quiet -- when I first powered it up (with the case off) I was concerned I could not hear the fan over the whine of other parts inside. This card is a great value -- especially after the mail-in rebate.

Cons: In the grand scheme of things this is not actually a very powerful card, but if all you do is play WoW you will be plenty satisfied.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card-verry forgiving

Pros: This card replaced a verry old 64mb ati and has just been a joy to learn with.Using coolbits I crashed this card so many times it just wasen't funny.I still overclock this baby (with the help of an extra fan) for a core speed of 400+Mhz and a mem clock of just under 630+Mhz and have gone much further.. around 475 it became unstable on core and 700 became unstable on mem to much heat for the all copper sinks to handle without some other cooling.Bottom line is this has been a solid card for me, have owned and abused for over 8 mounths

Cons: NOT ONE con here, great AGP card

Other Thoughts: my current system-Shuttle AV-40,pentium4 1.7 pushed to 1.9Ghz,TR2-M12 cpu cooler,El chepo 40 gig hd,350 watt el chepo psu,2x256mb crucial pc100 1x512mb elchepo pc100 total 1 gig,Chaintec 7300gt!...and yes my cpu is holdong this baby back I think.After clocking cpu fram rates improved into the 30+ range on css on medium settings. Hoped this review helps, Thx newegg

1 out of 5 eggsNo video signal

Pros: None, it didn't work!

Cons: I bought this to replace an older Radeon 9800 Pro that kicked the bucket, and it was a total pain to attempt to get it running. I had to go into safe mode everytime I started my desktop because it would not output a signal when it tried loading xp. I thought it was some flaky drivers, but after trying a different card it turned out to be the card.

Other Thoughts: I am using a 7300GT, but now this one is by **G Tech, and it works great. I wish my first try with Chaintech would have been better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for us old time AGP'ers

Pros: Great card. Quiet fan. Updated from OLD Ti 4200; huge improvement. Running FEAR at 45fps avg (75 max) w/ most settings at max. Haven't tweaked a whole lot yet, or started benching. Card was idleing around 48C, 53C under game load. Thermal paste should help this. I'm not a huge gamer, but this should keep me from updating comp (PCIe) for a few years.

Cons: As stated in other reviews, manual doesn't mention secondary MOLEX connector on card and NVIDIA SLI alert is pretty annoying. Not sure why they went with the MOLEX, hope it doesn't create any problems long term. still 5 eggs though...

Other Thoughts: NewEgg shipping is the best. 1 day delivery! Comp specs: Old ('02) Alienware Large ATX tower w/ 4 case fans, ASUS P4PE mobo, P4 2.4MHz (OC'd to 2.7 for now, just got Artic Silver 5), 1GB DDR (PC2700), SoundBlaster Audigy 2, XP SP1, Cheap Microtek 15' LCD monitor

5 out of 5 eggsNice card for the price

Pros: Low Cost and good drivers (but update them from the web) Works very well with joint ops and Halo. Good value.

Cons: Just barely over the line for most modern games.

Other Thoughts: If you have to get an AGP card this should be your first choice and your last AGP card.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for AGP for close to $100

Pros: Great card. Plays WoW like a charm. Plays pretty good with Battlefield 2142 even with my lower RAM and CPU. Has HDR rendering.

Cons: After awhile it received heat damage causing to show thin blue horizontal lines. This was fault as my computer isnt greatly cooled. Newegg.com shiped me a new one fast, thx newegg!

Other Thoughts: Overall great card.

4 out of 5 eggsgood video card

Pros: Still a pretty darn good card to run a lot of games. It was a good upgrade from my Radeon 9250.. It was a good semi-upgrade before I get a new cpu and a motherboard with pci express x16 instead of agp 4x/8x..

Cons: The manual did not mention a single thing about the secondary power connector.. so I couldn't figure out why it wasn't working for about 6hours.. At first, I thought the card came dead...

Other Thoughts: 2 dvi ports could've been nice

the price should be lowered a little bit..

But performance wise, it's still a good card
(won't run f.e.a.r with max setting smoothly, but runs great in war3 and wow with max setting so i'm happy
