4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Will process BluRay & HD-DVD discs. Not terribly expensive.

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: I have no idea about gaming with this cards, but will process BluRay & Hd-DVD discs without complain. I'm using VGA so I have no idea how the HDMI works.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: I've heard some great things from HIS concerning their quality and performance and with this card I can see why. I purchased this one because of the price and the spec were pretty good for what I would consider an equivalent to the 8600-8800 (specs wise). I would recommend going to HIS's site and getting the drivers from them, since the ones on the CD are a bit old.

Cons: 256MB of on-board memory...I wish it was 512

eh, I can always get a new card later on, when newer games demand more power (3870?)

Other Thoughts: I can play the Crysis Demo on medium flawlessly and partial High settings with a few framerate twitters here and there, just a minor irritation.

5 out of 5 eggsBought 2 - CrossfireX on Abit iL9 pro

Pros: Well I really wanted to build a crossfire system to see the results with the new drivers. So I picked up two of these, an ABIT iL9 Pro and a Logisys 575W Sli PSU.
3dmark06 RESULTS
XP: 1 card = 4200+
2 Cards= 5500+
VISTA: ONLY TESTED w/ 2 cards=7200+
Looks like ATI worked a little harder on the vista drivers for crossX or the fact that there are SM changes with vista. Either way these cards were way better than expected.

Cons: Being Mid range cards they really can bog down when challenged. But @ $75 w/ free ship they are a steal.

PS!!! If you plan to CrossX these get a decent single rail PSU w/ 25+ amps on the single 12v rail due to the fact that they dont require an external power source

3 out of 5 eggsPossible Reason for Heat

Pros: This is a good performer at least other 2600XT's are.

Cons: HIS most likely used a cheap thermal grease for the cooler and can anybody look under the fins and tell me if there are any heatsinks on the memory chips. Most Zalman coolers come with heatsinks to place on memory chips. I bet there are none on them.

Other Thoughts: Looks like the cost goes up to get this thing cooled right. If anybody pulls off the cooler and cleans surfaces and applies Artic Silver and stick on some heatsinks to memory let us know how it came out. Sad that you have to do this and HIS did not.

5 out of 5 eggsGood bank for the buck

Pros: I have the 512MB version. Very quiet. Does not get too hot in my case. Significant performance increase over my previous card.

Cons: Does not appear to have significant overclock potential. But, I do not really need more for now.

Other Thoughts: Adding a Zalman fan to this card in a stock configuration was a great idea. Thank you HIS. Saved me from having to do it myself for added cost. As always, Newegg has a great selection, and very competitive prices.

1 out of 5 eggsBoy, do I feel stupid...

Pros: Single-slot design, psuedo-quiet Zalman cooler, cheaper than dirt with rebate.

Cons: Admittedly, this is all my fault. I figured that although there were a number of reviews complaining about the card needing more cooling, I assumed that the card still worked regardless. My assumption was that even though the card may run hot, no manufacturer would ever be so stupid as to deliberately sell a card that would not operate under normal conditions.

Well, serves me right that only a number of hours after receiving the card and trying to play HL2 I found out that yes, the card *does* need better cooling, because it crashes my system after about 60-90 seconds of trying to run a 3D engine. I literally can't even start a level.

I yearn for the idle temps some people have been mentioning. 48C? I'm seeing an idle temp of 65C, despite the fact that my case, while small, has a respectable amount of air circulation.

Other Thoughts: I was running an 8600GTS as a temporary card before I bought this, and all was well. It just boggles my mind to think a company could let such an obviously faulty product ship. If you are considering buying this card, please don't. The price is awfully tempting for the potential this card has, but the other reviewers are correct; it's utterly flawed. Save yourself the trouble of an RMA and spend a few extra bucks on a card that works.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate: Needs Better Cooling

Pros: Add HD decoding to the list of pros, as it really helps cut the CPU usage during playback. If video playback is what you need, this card rocks.

Cons: I have now seen temps in the 105C plus range during gaming, and the card has crashed the system requiring a computer restart. I am debating whether to rma this card.

Other Thoughts: If a gaming card is what you need, I would not recommend this model to anyone unless an alternative cooling solution is considered. If it's just for a desktop, don't bother. For video playback, I am not sure there are better cards than the 2600 series when price is considered.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds Better Cooling

Pros: This video card plays UT3 beta at very respectable frame rate rates at 1440x900 on widescreen monitor. ATi's 7.10 drivers help, too. Get them! Video playback, whether DVD or DivX, works fine. Shorter Card length is a welcome feature.

Cons: Despite having a Zalman heatsink and fan, it runs hot. Idle temps are around 51C. Running full load, temps are around 87C plus! The thermal interface may be the culprit. My case is adequately cooled. My Q6600 runs 35C-39C under load in UT3beta. System Temps under 30C.

Other Thoughts: Intel Core 2 Q6600, 4GB DDR2800, Asus P5B/wifi mb. Win XP-64, Couple of 7200rpm hdds not in RAID.

2 out of 5 eggsFast - but faulty

Pros: Fast enough card for the price. Small format, doesn't require much power.

Cons: This is the second ATI card in a year that I've received that constantly triggers VPU recover. This one just randomly blanks out at the desktop about twice a day and throws up a VPU Recover message. It also crashes in games. I'm going to have to return it and be video-less for a week or more. I think I'm about done with ATI, I'm sick of crashing video cards.
