5 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: I love this card. It handles everything I need. This includes video editing, TV viewing in HD and high end games.

Cons: As others have said, it runs HOT. You will need to make sure you have a COOL system to begin with.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have at least a true 750W power supply with an 8 pin PCI-E connection.
Newegg rocks! I buy virtually everything from here and if there has ever been an issue (only 1 so far), it is resolved quickly.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: 507 core and 514 memory are the 2d clocks, they go up to 600/800 when you run a fullscreen 3d app. (use atitool to graph clockspeeds)

5 out of 5 eggsOverclock

Pros: This card can eaily be overclocked. I have mine set to 800 mhz and it never goes above 75. Memory at 1100 mhz (2200 mhz). Great card.

Cons: The fan sounds like a jet while gaming with the core oveclocked.

Other Thoughts: Download ATItool 0.27b4 beta. Set the fan speed to 100% and it will not overclock. my fan is about 50% playing Crysis.

3 out of 5 eggsUm...

Pros: Good Preformance for the price(according to specs).

Cons: The specs say 600 mhz clock. I put the card in and my clock is at 507 mhz and the ram is at 514 mhz (1028 mhz).

Other Thoughts: It might be that i'm using a 6 pin power connector but it says overdrive will be disabled not core speed will be reduced on 6 pin. With a 507 clock it runs slightly better than the 8600gt.

4 out of 5 eggsCan be overclocked

Pros: Inexpensive. On level with X1900s performance wise.

Cons: Fried my non-true 750W PSU. Its a little loud during game play, but very tolerable. Same memory bus as the X1k series cards.

Other Thoughts: I bought the Sapphire edition. Got it to replace my damaged X1800. OC to 790core/1100mem(2200Mhz), very stable. Close to eight-thousand three-d marks when overclocked. Around six-thousand on stock. I'm only running on an Opteron 175 @ 2.6Ghz.

2 out of 5 eggsgimped 2900

Pros: 256 memory interface

Cons: runs very hot, can not be overclocked. For the price get a 2900 Pro or one of the new 3850.Driver support/compatibility is subpar at best.
