2 out of 5 eggsProblomatic

Pros: Inexpensive for it's performance level. Doesn't require additional power from the power supply.

Cons: Somewhat mediocre performance for it's generation. Started freezing in zome game after a few months.

Other Thoughts: Tried a newer NV chip card to see if that corrected the frequent system lockups. A month later and no lock up. I put the x800 back in, and it froze the very same night after 1 hour.

5 out of 5 eggsATI Fan

Pros: It's an ATI card - It's a x800GTO ... I have 14 other x800GTOs so it makes it easy on me.
Runs cooler and with less power then a comparable Nvidia board

Cons: Aging chipset - better ATI offerings available.

Nvidia seems to be the darling of the industry currently.

Other Thoughts: Trying to go back to my comfort zone. I've always used ATI... they've never let me down. Had some issues with nVidia. Reality Notice: This is not to say nVidia is bad... I'm just more knowledgeable about ATI products.

2 out of 5 eggsNot as good as I expected

Pros: Fair price, runs games, okay graphics, still running.
I have the connect3D version but I think it should be about the same.

Cons: Not as good as nvidia equivalent: only shader model 2 supported, played many games and the shadows look horrible. Medieval 2 and Rome Total War games keep freezing.

Other Thoughts: I guess you get what you paid for. I bought this card back in winter of 05. I was thinking that it was nice and cheap so I got it. At first it was fine because the games I was playing weren't up to the standard yet. Then I got newer games and the flaws started appearing.

5 out of 5 eggsGood For Me

Pros: I lucked out and got one with a core that had 4 more unlockable pipelines. After unlocking the pipelines to give me 16 total i oc'd the core from 400 to 480.

Cons: on mine i got a tiny little black heat sink which only covers the core and on the stock speed for the ram i get artifacts while gaming so i had to lower it to 470 (940)

Other Thoughts: Overall i would have to say that this card was an excelent deal for me. bought this card about half a year ago and i haven't had any serious problems with drivers and such. In fact the only problem i have had is with the ram not working at stock speed. i am thinking of getting an aftermarket cooler for this card to see how much further i can push it.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: None

Cons: This card is constantly freezing the system and only way to reboot is to unplug computer from AC. Newegg exchanged the card but problem remained. I'm using D 945 GBO board with Intel d 945 CPU.
Noise from fan is unbearable .

Other Thoughts: You don't really need any aditional video card on this motherboard for avarage PC use. 945 GBO onboard videocard performs perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsCheck your ram and cooling on the card.

Pros: I have the connect3D release of this card. I love it. if you having problems look down below in "other thoughts"

Cons: My unit was not one of the few famed numbers in the connect3D release that could be reflashed and unlocked to 16 pipes. :( oh well still a monster of a card :D

Other Thoughts: I had the same problems as described by others. i thought it was either the card or the radeon 200 xpress redeon IGP/Northbridge on my motherboard. I also read it was the cooling that was causing the cold boots, the freezing, and the blue screen. that was a dead give a way. if you see a blue screen outside of a win9x OS, it is usually your ram. i ran mine through microsoft's memory diagnostic. did not run flying colours. so i popped the memory out and tested each stick seperatly in each slot. found out it was one slot i lost an anchor clip in. the ram was not secure enough. i though i pushed it in enough and that it was secure enough, but it was not. every now and then, like when i have to move the tower i push the ram down to make sure it's all good. if you are getting the freezing, and the blue screen, check your ram. it's probably not the card. also i heard this card runs hot. get a zalman cooling kit, bend the anchoring bar on one side so it screws together.

2 out of 5 eggsIt's All True! Bad Card!

Pros: Cheap price. Doesn't require a high end power supply.

Cons: This thing overheats ocassionaly and causes Windows Vista/Games to freeze, which is a pain to deal it. I RMA'ed the card and hopefully I can get something else that isn't as bad as this.

2 out of 5 eggsGood Specs, but Flawed By Problems

Pros: Good specs that were much better then my previous X300

Cons: I got this for the specs and for better performance w/ my ATI HDTV tuner. When it worked, it was good, but it was plagued with freezing, VPU recovery, blue screen of death. I thought it may be a power issue so I upgraded my power supply and the problems remained. I'm certain it's the card that's the problem and it's really frustrating when you know at any minute your PC can freeze. If it was a temperature issue, that still makes it a sub par deal. things should work well out of the box, so despite its potential, reliability is the most important factor

Other Thoughts: pay close attention to the cons in newegg reviews. pro reviews are great, but I noticed the same problems happening in other reviews after experiencing my problems.

2 out of 5 eggsProblems in XP and Linux

Pros: Does HD resolutions well (480p, 720p, 1080i).

Cons: I've had problems installing on both XP and Linux due to driver issues.

Other Thoughts: I don't usually buy ATI but this card came with an ASUS MB with a good deal. I tried to install this card on 2 different system with XP Pro SP2 and both times would get BSODs due to the latest ATI drivers. On Linux it works great if you are using a D-Sub cable, but if you use a DVI cable any time the resolution is changed the system locks up. This includes switching init level and shutting down. (Known bug) This is still the case with the latest drivers compiled from AMD.

5 out of 5 eggsWow-great value!

Pros: Great card--not to loud at all, overclocks easily, and fit well with my system. AMD 3500+, ECS Nforce4 mobo, 2 GB DDR 2 800. Average frame rate around 110.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I accidentily set up my BIOS to shut down at a very early temperature...60 degrees...and it shut down all the time. This card heats up quickly! Make sure to adjust fans speed and timing, and DON'T have your homes hot air return blowing on your PC :)
