5 out of 5 eggsCrossfire in Sli board?

Pros: Wicked fast and sweet iq settings
the picture of this versus an Nvidia 7950gt is about 1.25 times better

Cons: All the reviews out there say you can run crossfire on an Nvidia Sli chipset, I wasnt daring enough to try, but i dont see why this isnt possible

Other Thoughts: AMD-ATI merger better materialize soon it never looks good when a 7 billion dollar company and 5 billion dollar company merge to form a 7 billion dollar company....
I want wars to drive better technology here

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Value

Pros: It's cheap and fast..You'd be hard pressed to find a card in this price range anywhere near this fast.I scored close to 12,000 in 3dMark05 with a small overclock and my system.Plays Battlefield 2 on max.

Cons: Specs on Newegg are wrong ..Mine came clocked at 513/1320 but easily over clocks to 575/1400 and I've never seen it break 70c in Ati tool over clocked with fan at 41%.

Other Thoughts: System:Core2Quad Q6600 G0 3.0Ghz, 2Gb ddr2 800,GA-P35-DS3L,And this card makes a nice cheap Gaming rig.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Great card for the price as everyone else says, but it's true. Runs source games one all high with 4xAA and 2xAF with FPS in the hundreds! Tried GRAW and it was flawless too.

Cons: This thing is a beast! It's true what the other reviewers say about this card, it really is huge. Even longer than my mobo, but probably since it's a micro ATX lol.

Other Thoughts: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Processor with Geforce 6100m-m mobo, A-data RAM 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks). Also I'm pretty fortunate to have gotten this card when i saw the deal, It's already sold out!

5 out of 5 eggsVista 64 Bit Compatible

Pros: Works like a charm right from the start in my new build. After installing Vista 64-Bit, I simply updated the driver. But it worked right from the start. Great price for the performance. Built this new system to run Adobe CS3 Web Premium for design work. But I might just get a game or two to see what this card and new computer can do.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: ASUS P5K-VM, Intel C2D E6550, Zero-Therm CF900 cooler, 2 GB of G-SKILL PC2 8500, Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2SB ATX12V v2.2 500W Power Supply, Vista 64-Bit Home Premium. Bought a Zero-therm GX710 cooler for it, but want to leave the VGA as is to see how the stock fan works.

5 out of 5 eggsR U Nuts?

Pros: When this card was the top dog is when all the last generation of good games came out. BF2, Prey, Oblivion, 2142, COD2, WOW, Quild Wars etc. I can't remember this powerful of a card being this good of a deal. Saw PC G@(v)ER review of DX10 and DX9 in games; myah!!! Not a big difference yet, so dont expect giant leaps in the next year. Expect 40+ FPS in most any game at reasonable resolutions (1280x1024) in DX9 duh.

Cons: Newegg advertising an older revisions clocks. But still I imagine at less than a c-note you'd be pleased even if you didnt flash the old BIOS to the card which would make it run at older speeds :) Snag a good cooler and arctic silver ceramique for 1950xt speeds.

Other Thoughts: Look at the other cards under a bill. Only the 7600GT shakes a stick at this card and most of them require rebate. ATI always look better to me, period! I have a friend who has gamed with Nvidia for almost a decade. When he sees my rig running games at Medium setting he says it looks better than his BFG 7800GS cranked up high. Not that you'd need to use med. settings but as reference ;) Anyways this is a steal. Personally if I had to choose between this and a 7600 Id go with this one due to the 256-bit Memory Bus. This was a high-end card lil over a year ago while 7600 has always been mid-range.

5 out of 5 eggsnice for the price

Pros: great card, i replaced it from a 1950pro agp card that i was having issues with(the card was fine my am2 msi agp board was to blame)it runs great in my new GIGABYTE GA-MA69G-S3H.

Cons: doesn't get the higher FPS that the 512 1950pro agp card I had, but I haven't had a crash yet during game play, and it seems games move a lot smother.

Other Thoughts: great card, theirs better out their, but not the same price

4 out of 5 eggsknow what you are getting

Pros: its a terrific card for this price. get one while newegg still has them in stock.

Cons: newegg's specs are wrong. this is a x1900gt rev2.0. this means that the core clock is set at 512, not 575 and the mem clock is set at 660 (1320), not 600 (1200). in the end, the difference is somewhat negligable.

Other Thoughts: i just OC the core clock to 575 to "fix" it. also, the stock cooler isn't that great as i experienced temps of 70C under load. Zalman works wonders.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great features for such a price. I was blown away by the graphics that this card offers. F.E.A.R., Cold Fear, Doom 3. All look fantastic.

Cons: A little on the large size, but nothing major.

Other Thoughts: This is my first ATI card and I am wildly impressed. Going to buy another for crossfire capability.

5 out of 5 eggsgood card

Pros: Solid card for the $$, it's direct competitors are the 2600xt and the 8600 gt, take a look at some benchmarks, this card is considerably faster.

Cons: I got the rev2 board, I would have rather had the rev1.

Other Thoughts: unless you want to spend 33% more cash and get a 1950pro, this is the card to get

5 out of 5 eggsVery good card

Pros: This card will play about any DX9 game out there. It is a VERY good OC'er, just use after-market cooler. Card's BIOS became corrupted after 10 months, and Sapphire sent me a replacement no arguments.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The low clock speeds some are reporting are the 2D speeds. When in 3D mode it runs as advertised. If using other cooler, save stock cooler in case of RMA. Sapphire doesn't care about OC'ing, just don't burn it up!
