5 out of 5 eggsFun card

Pros: Plays anything i can throw at it with better than average framerates. quiet for the most part. stays cool.

Cons: I get the jagged-line look often in games, anti-aliasing hardly helps.

Other Thoughts: No need to overclock this puppy until it gets a little older :)

1 out of 5 eggsnon-warranted defects

Pros: excellent card for HTPC at 1920 X 1200 on a 24" LCD

Cons: card doesn't support ATI Catalyst upgrade software

Other Thoughts: ATI tech support advised me that the HIS video card was defective & to contact them directly for replacement:
-according to HIS rma paperwork, I've voided the warranty as I've modified the card (I swapped out the fan for quieter & better cooling); and
-I left an unanswered phone message at HIS to discuss the purchase of an updated card to replace the unwarranted defective card.
I found this whole experience very confusing. It appears that ATI strongly supports & encourages modification by users. However, there is no warning that it is done at your own risk and voids the warranty (even if the defect is completely unrelated to the modification).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very Fast. Very Quiet. Loads games very quickly. Games are very smooth with no stuttering whatsoever, even under stressful loads. This card will take anything you can throw at it effortlessly.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I almost went with the super-duper version of this card, but decided on this one because of cost. I am NOT disappointed. This card is superb!

4 out of 5 eggsFast, Cool, but loud

Pros: Great Card for the money and performance. Really pleased so far with the cooling system. keeps the card at 44 degrees Celsius all the time. like the fact that it has hdmi on it.

Cons: the fan is loud at 10% it's annoying. the sapphire 4870 toxic edition was so quite i couldn't even hear it at 30%. This is the only reason why i took an egg off.

Other Thoughts: just with the fan wasn't so loud.
