5 out of 5 eggsStill running well

Pros: I've had this card since April and still haven't had any problems with it. I do think that those that have had problems don't have adequate cooling. This card has been folding for FAH since the GPU folding software came out, and has been working without any problems.

Cons: I had to add a memory sink on the bare Rialto AGP chip on the back of the card to keep it cool, as well as small sinks on the memory chips. I can see the Rialto chip being a problem due to the extreme heat levels it generates.

2 out of 5 eggslike what everyone else said

Pros: was great while it lasted , like everyone else said . Ran BF2 on high and cod2 also . Got decent fps also

Cons: fried out after 6 months of use . Woke up turned the comp on and got no signal to the monitor . I put the card in my sons comp and got the same result . Put my sons 9800 in my comp and got a signal , hence the 1600 went bad . Good thing I have a pci 9250 I keep as backup .

Other Thoughts: make sure you have a good amp rating on the 12 volt rail of your psu .

5 out of 5 eggsgood board

Pros: This is an excellent, middle of the road video board. Don't buy this expecting to run the most cutting edge computer games at thier highest resolutions; it's not going to perform any miracles, but the card has run very well and incident free. I have not run into any problems with the board overheating as other users have reported.

Cons: No video board temp sensor

2 out of 5 eggsWAS a good card!

Pros: This is a good card when it works.

Cons: it fried after a year of use. It runs way to hot.

Other Thoughts: save yourself the hassle of buying this card and get a different one, or wait a while for DX10 prices to drop.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: No problems installing it, runs quiet, no software difficulties, made my games look great and run smooth considering I have a somewhat older setup.

Cons: Can be a little warm at times but I leave one side of my case open anyways so it really does not affect me.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A great video card. Ran Oblivion and Counter Strike Source at a constant 100 fps. Battlefield 2 on high settings with 50 fps~

Cons: Card died after only 4 months..
The card just runs too hot. A word of advice, don't touch the heatsink(ouch).

4 out of 5 eggsAnother one bites the dust

Pros: Performed well for the initial cost. Played newer games like LOTR BFME2 and Oblivion at acceptable resolution and framerates.

Cons: One day all was fine and the next my machine would not post with the card inserted. Tried it in another box to verify it was the card and sure enough, same thing.

Other Thoughts: I rated the card 4 overall due to the fact that when it worked, it worked well especially for the money. Just wish it didn't die in 5 months. This was my 1st RMA with newegg in numerous years of purchasing from them and it was a painless process. 5+ stars for newegg's customer service.

4 out of 5 eggsSapphire X1600 Pro

Pros: This card is everything you need if you want to run Vista. It isn't the best on the market, but for an AGP card, it's still excellent.

Cons: None
