5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for the Buck

Pros: This is a great card. Upgraded from an AGP x1600 512mb (obviously upgraded my mainboard as well) and all benchmarking tests I've done have doubled. Went from 45fps to 99fps in the CS Stress Test, everything maxed, 4X/8Xaa. Scored 6000+ marks in 3DMark 06 with a 3000+ 64, 2GB compared to 3000 marks with the X1600. This is the best deal I've seen in a long time!

Cons: Huge bulky card. Requires special power adapter for molex plug which lengthens power cable significantly.

Other Thoughts: Thank you New Egg for selling this card at such a reasonable price. Have been wanting to upgrade forever without having a ton of money to spend. Was looking at a 7900 for a hundred more but this deal came along and I've been completely happy with the marked improvement.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for the buck!

Pros: 256dd3/256bit and sm3.0. i got 13k on mark03 and i doubled my aquamark gpu score. my previous card was a 6800nu AGP.

Cons: big card, barely fit in my mid ATX case. card comes w/a weak fan.

Other Thoughts: decent OC'er w/a 15% OC'in ability. this card is seriously the best bang for the buck if you want a quality card.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great FPS on Battlefield 2142 with everything turned to high. Easy to install and get up and running. Overclocking is also simple. All new game demos that I downloaded to try this card out with ran smooth with everything turned up high. Not a huge power guzzler, I am running a 305w PS on a AMD x2 5000+

Cons: Really, and I mean Really loud fan. Especially when it kicks up a notch during heavy gameplay. Course, I usually can't hear anything over the booming of my speakers anyway :) but annoying when working on a spreadsheet or CAD app.

Other Thoughts: CPU Crash when I overclocked by more than 540 (ish) on the GPU. Only a few FPS improvement over stock. Big card, "just fit" in my case. Its a huge improvement over my Nvidia 7300LE card (what wouldnt be?) I went from 3DMark06 of 650 to 3380. For 120, its a great deal (IMHO)

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for Windows Games

Pros: Outperforms the competition in the same price range. Great performer in games.

Cons: Linux drivers stink. Only 12 pipelines, and the remaining 4 won't unlock on this model. Won't overclock.

Other Thoughts: Hard to beat the price/performance ratio on this card. It's given my system a new lease on life. In the games I care about (3d rpgs mostly) I get 2-3 times the performance out of my wheezy old Athlon 3500+. I get 26 fps in Oblivion with *everything* maxed out (at 1024x768.)

5 out of 5 eggsas expected

Pros: works like a charm. worth 120

~5,000 benchmark with ATI Traytool

and ~100 FPS Avg. in the CS:S Stress Test

all ran on a AMD 3200+ 2.0Ghz Processor and 1gig of DDR 400 Ram.

CS:S at 1280x1024 with all HIGH settings, 4x AA and 8x AF

Cons: none. not even to the guy that tried to slander me to the 20 people that will most likely never notice his and my reviews.

Other Thoughts: Benchmark
Stress Test

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Inexpensive, performs well, runs relatively cool and quiet.

Cons: Price has dropped over 75 bucks since I bought it.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 of these back in May and run them in crossfire in my Abit AT8 32X with an X2 4400+. Get 11.800 in 3DMark 05. Runs everything I play at high framerates with settings maxed out. They have served me well and will continue to do so until next summer when I get my R600.

5 out of 5 eggsBig bang for the buck

Pros: This card really surprised me out of the box, I was holding off upgrading for DX10 cards to come down, but my current card was just getting too sluggish. this thing is pumping Oblivion at ultra high settings without a single hiccup. simply beautiful quality graphics this thing puts out. My honest opinion is for the price you just cant find a better card.

Cons: Its a pretty big card if your familiar with Radeon 9550 x700 x800 cards add about a quarter more to get an idea of this cards size.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have enough room in your case. and if you do then by all means buy this card, its an inexpensive way to get the most out of current games while waiting for DX10 cards to come down.

5 out of 5 eggsKeep it relevant

Pros: Great performance for the price. Mine turned out to be a good overclocker. Most of these should go beyond 700MHz with a slight bump in voltage.

Cons: None at this price

Other Thoughts: Geoff, hey that's great bud! I'm sure everyone that read your review (includinging yourself) is reeeaally impressed by how much you know and how smart you are..... But the point of these user reviews is for people to provide actual item useage reports.....not conclusions and personal product preferrences you have come to from forum readings.

5 out of 5 eggs:D

Pros: -256mb 256bit GDDR3 (good for overclocking)

-performs better than the 7600GT with AA and AF, but under performs with it off.

-capability of HDR and AA at the same time(good for CS:S)

-same specs as the 1800XL just with crippled pipes.

Cons: -only 12pipes vs. the 1800XL's 16(since its sapphire you cant unlock the other 4 that you "can" with ohter companies. which would explain why its cheaper than them)

basically 12 pixel pipelines with 8 vertex pipes

-not DX10, but ATI doesnt have a single DX10 card and theres no real need for it for awhile.

Other Thoughts: neither ATI or nVIDIA is better, it just depends on what games your gonna play. and what i mean by that is everygame is basically designed for either the nVIDIA or ATI GPU, so if a games designed for nVIDIAS GPU like DOOM3, a nVIDIA card will most likely out perform an ATI card. but it doesnt make that card better than the ATI card. as the ATI card could prolly out perform the nVIDIA card in Oblivion, due to its better shader capabilities. just some games like certain graphical architectures. but comparing the two companies is like comparing Ford vs. Chevy or Honda vs. Toyota(even though i dont think people compare those two) also McDonalds vs. Wendy's vs. BurgerKing vs. Tacobell, pepsi vs. coke, subway vs. quizno's, etc.
