HIS takes ATI’s HD concept and runs with it. They took a Radeon HD 2600XT running at a screaming 800MHz, added 512MB of GDDR3 memory and a pile of extra features. One of the first things you’ll notice is the extra bling on the DVI-I ports. It’s not just for show: the gold plating both increases conductivity and resists oxidation for better contact and data flow. The blue PCB and black panel plate add to the visual appeal of your system, especially in windowed cases.

Play at the top of your game without worrying if your video card is going to hold you back. The 2600XT GPU has 120 stream processing units, high-speed 128-bit HDR lighting and up to 24x custom filter anti-aliasing so you’ll be able to see the bad guys as soon as possible and take them out. There is full DX10 support so you don’t have to worry about the card being outdated anytime soon. But when you need more power as games get tougher and the enemy shoots faster, just add another card in CrossFire mode and take back the night.

When the enemy is vanquished and your trigger finger is sore, just pop a movie into your system’s HD-DVD or Blu-ray Disc player and send it to your TV in full 1080p HD. And since the 2600XT processor has a 5.1 channel HD audio processor built in, if you TV has a DVI-I port or an HDMI port (with optional adapter), you don’t need to run separate audio cables. That also makes this card a great choice for HTPCs.

3 out of 5 eggsOverheats a bit too much

Pros: Has worked great for 7 months with no issues, untill now.

Cons: After 7 months of operation the heat issues began to appear. Now, the problem has gotten so bad that I have had to switch all graphics to the lowest possible rating just to keep the machine running and the average temp stabalized at 88c.

Other Thoughts: A good buy for a short term card. Once the heat issues start they degrade untill the system is almost useless.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Good quality video capabilities.

Cons: Heats up extreemely quickly with the small fan attached to the card.

Other Thoughts: This card runs beautifully. It is not a high end card, however, it does run most games nicely. Only newer games require specs that this card can't handle. The games that I do have problems with are games that are running in DX10 and DX10 is hard for even the most capable of cards. I reccomend this card to anyone who wants the most power for the money.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat card, watch the heat

Pros: Good card, very fast, plays most games with great with very high graphics settings.

Cons: Watch out for over heating. Mine overheats in about fifteen minutes while playing UT3. Hopefully I can resolve this problem

Other Thoughts: I would definately recomend this card, but if you buy it be prepared for over heating.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I think the card performs very well, maybe even above expectations.

Cons: none, other than catalyst control center will not overclock, though i don't think it would stay stable if it did.

Other Thoughts: wish i had spent more money on a 3870, but happy with performance per dollar spent.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A nice price for a decent card. Even though ATI's CCC doesn't recognize that the memory is 1400MHz, it DOES run at that (most tuners confirms this.)

Cons: Overheats way too easy. I was running everything stock, and reaching temps of 105C. This was fixed with a new GPU cooler I bought (Zalman VF1000)

Other Thoughts: I crossfired 2 of these, and I'm able to run most games on high quality, full screen (1680x1050), getting 30+ FPS. I was able to get same quality from one card, but under 30FPS.

It's a good card, but I would recommend looking into putting your money towards a higher end one, especially the new 3870s.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Outstanding performance so far, just built a new system with it, plays UT3 at 1280x960 with everything at max, same with my other games.

Cons: Nothing yet.

Other Thoughts: Athlon 5000+ BE, MSI K9A2 CF, 2gb Crucial Ballistix DDR2, HIS Radeon HD 2600XT, 250gb Seagate sata, Corsair VX550W

5 out of 5 eggsI like it ALOT

Pros: Gets the job done, I play COD4 and WoW on good settings and resolution. Its so freakin cheap.

Cons: Like everyone else has said you just gotta download the drivers and your good.

Other Thoughts: I havent been able to overclock it but It runs smoothly enough w/o. It looks better on bigger screen monitors. like ones higher than 17.

5 out of 5 eggsWell Worth the Price

Pros: I bought this card for my son's computer. I was very surprised at the quality and speed that it runs at. He's running 5600 X2 with 4Gigs of DDR2 800 on Vista/XP Pro dual boot. The card performs wonderfully on both OS. 3d games look great and run with great Frame rates.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This card easily keeps up with my 8600GTS. But after I add my second card I don't think it will be a match.

3 out of 5 eggsEhh. . .

Pros: It wasn't $400. it worked better than my 7300gs. It was 512MBs of GDDR3. it wasn't huge. it performed on dx9.

Cons: it shows up as unknow PCI Device after i put ATI Drivers on my PC. I knwo it was the video card because i just replaced MOBO, RAM, and Proc. It showed up as a video card too. plus when you use DX 10, it chugs, or doesn't work correctly. This was a porr decision on my part.

Other Thoughts: I don't recommend it, it could just be this specific card that i have, but i wouldn't chance it again. Go Buy a 9600gt or an 8800gt of your worried about price. They are both better.

3 out of 5 eggsFlop From ATI yet again....

Pros: Card comes overclocked from the factory, 800 mhz core clock, 512 mb GDDR3....runs crysis on medium at 45 fps.......crysis on high settings run at 15 so have to turn down post-processing to low, to acheive about 25 fps......AA doesnt affect performance much at 2x.....runs fear and other titles at 35-50fps.......quiet fan too...

Cons: fan sucks.....can controll it...stuck at 60%, idles at 43C and at high load gets to 65C, cant overclock or it crashes...ATI catylist cant overclock at all, had to use rivatune, and it messed up......driver sucks, this card is crashes randomly, and even when browsing the web....heat sink is weak....and its only 128-bit...if you are looking for a gaming card then look past the 2600XT.......this card is ok for general gaming...and apps...but hardcore gamers look further.....and the ATI 3870 is barely any better.....ATI has lost the edge.....sorry....

Other Thoughts: Before anyone thinks its my computer its not, cause i am running a 512 geforce 8600GT right now, and a 8800 GT G92 is on the way......ATI sucks, AMD sucks.....i have a intel 2 core 2.8ghz each core.....2 GB gamers look to nVidia....
