2 out of 5 eggsPlease, Pay Attention to This!

Pros: This is one of the fastest AGP boards. Finally got some decent drivers from the xfx website.

Got a 50 dollar price drop, (still overpriced)

I would give it a 1 because it is a poorly engineered product, but when it works, it REALLY works.

Cons: This card will not last you the year, i can garuntee it. Forget about the fact that it run hot, it has a much more serious problem.

This card has a faulty fan. Read the other reviews, I'm not lying when I say this. The fan will slowly come apart and hit the top of the heatsink bringing it to a stop.

You can try to work around this by removing the entire top panel of the heatsink (raising ur gpu temp by 6 degrees C on average), or you can flip your whole computer tower upside down. I tried both, and that gave it about 2 more weeks of life, until the fan just died.

In addition to that, i had a faulty dvi connector out of the box... joy.

Read other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Do not think that "oh, maybe mine wont be bad?" Come on people. I got it the day it came out and mine lasted longer then all of my friends. 3 of us got it, All of ours died (yes, this EXACT card). The card WILL DIE. It's inevitable.

The question becomes, are you willing to spend 200+ dollars for a few months of great speed, followed by complete failure?

This was the final straw. I had been relucntant to go to pci-e, but now it would be stupid to stay in agp any longer, especially with the 8800GT selling at the same price as this card.

This card is a failure... Save your money and upgrade. I only wish u do not have to go through the same pain i did...

5 out of 5 eggsStill Going Strong

Pros: As many have already said, it extends the life of an AGP system. The earlier driver compatibily issues have been resolved. Just go to the XFX website to get the latest drivers. The 163.71 XP drivers installed without a problem.

Cons: Runs a little hot but original cooling solution seems to be holding up so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card and have had no issues with it other than with the first couple of driver releases having difficulty recognizing the card during install. If you do not want to go to PCI express just yet, I would consider this card to be a nice upgrade. Be aware that a few DX10 AGP cards are rumored to be in the works so you may want to wait. If they do show up, you will at least know where to buy one.........Newegg.com!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to install and easy to find the latest drivers,

5 out of 5 eggsMajor Upgrade from GF5900

Pros: MAJOR UPGRADE FROM nVidia Geforce FX5900 with 128mb RAM. This card is amazing.

I have a 1.6GHz AMD Athlon XP 2600+, 1.5GB RAM, 600GB IDE Western Digital hard drives and an Asus A7V266-E mobo. This card works wonderfully. I mostly play EA's only good game "Battlefield 2" and I have all the video settings maxed out with an unbelievable frame rate. I also have like a bizillion fans in my computer, 2 on the side of the case, 2 on the top, one mounted to the mobo, one on the back panel, and yeah. So like other people were saying that the stock cooling sucked, yeah, I can see how if you didn't have a bazillion fans it might warp but mine hasn't and I've felt it while in game and its not hot to the touch after about 1.5hr of gameplay which is pretty good by my standards. oh and gotta love the green DVI ports.

Cons: None yet!

Other Thoughts: Most people say that you need at least 450w power supply but it says right on the box "400w power supply mimimum". Sure 450w will be better, but all you need is 400w. Then again, 400w isn't that much these days...

4 out of 5 eggsNice Card!

Pros: Replaced a 7800 GS OC in my P4 3.4 GHz system. Allows me to play Bioshock on High instead of Medium. Quieter than my 7800 GS OC card also. I hope I am ready for Crysis and HL2 TF2 now.

Cons: Large and Heavy. Make sure you have room for it and enough 12V power.

Other Thoughts: Idle temp shows about 51C and 57C just after playing Bioshock. 400 Watt/20 amps 12V needed. I am running a 500 Watt with dual 14 amp 12V rails without problems.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing AGP card!!!

Pros: This card is amazing for the aged AGP technology. Others have had problems with theirs dieing... but mine has had no problems... to keep it a little cooler i bought a Zerotherm VGA cooler GX710 and now it is running quieter and cooler then ever... i am highly recommending this product to someone that wants preformance without changing your machine to pci-e and eating a whole through your wallet.

Cons: none at all

Other Thoughts: I am happy i bought this card. After reading reviews and buying it to try it out anyways i am very pleased. The thing you really want is a 500w or more power supply to go with it.

5 out of 5 eggs7950GT AGP

Pros: This is the best AGP card you will ever buy. It is thank simple.

Cons: Older models of this card had lots of problems, but most of them are worked out. You do pay a price for greatness.

Other Thoughts: XFX offers a LifeTime Warranty! So even if it does go bad they will fix it for free. You can even put a new heatsink on and it will still be under Warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsfan does warp within 3 weeks

Pros: the card is long and has 512 megs of ram. Its really great in LOTRO on full graphics detail.

Cons: The fan will bend out of shape and stop spinning cannot be repaired no one sells a fan to fit the AGP card. have 620watt fully new powersupply one wire running to card on lead didnt matter the fan warped. I heard it and stopped the card from melting . avoid its 300 dollars down the sink hole.

3 out of 5 eggsdissapointed

Pros: Great look, easy to install, Xp recognized it right away.

Cons: No increase in performance from my X800XT card, and monitor goes into sleep mode upon start-up of applications and games instantly or there soon after. Tried the latest drivers from XFX site as well as the ones that came with the cd with no luck. Bought this card because its the fastest AGP card and has SM 3.0, but seemingly useless with the issues im experiencing.

Other Thoughts: Not too impressed with XFX products at the moment. There's a reason why I usually stick with ASUS cards and I probably should have done the same here.

1 out of 5 eggsSad to say...

Pros: It worked without the drivers..?

Cons: The CD would not boot up... The CD Crashed the computer when I tried to boot it up. Once I installed the downloaded drivers the computer would then hang even at load screen. Games lasted 10 seconds before freezing IF I got into it.

Other Thoughts: If going for a powerful AGP card go for either a ATI Radeon x1650 or the BFG NVIDIA ones... This card sad to say is garbage and I usually have had the best of luck with computer parts...
