5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: all my games are completely maxed out with this card, i have bf2, half-life 2, world of warcraft, dark massiah of might and magic, all are completely maxed out

Cons: uses a large power supply, i think this card actually burned my old power supply out, but im not for sure if it did, now i have a raidmax 550W and i feel its well overpowered

Other Thoughts: my system is a amd x2 64 3800+, with 2 gb of ram, and 750gb of hard drive space, 2 of my 3 harddrives are sata, and the other is just and external, and of course i have this card

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card, no overclocking

Pros: Run of the mill 1900GT, which is to say a great card for the money. Runs virtually everything with everything turned up.

Cons: Can't overclock, no voltage control, limited to overclocking within with the normal catalyst tools constraints and even there they won't go far.

3 out of 5 eggsnice card, software is a bit lacking

Pros: This card handles my games at max easily. The reason I choose this particular x1900 gt, was because it has a cool graphic. I'd recommend a case that can show it off.
I run my games at 1440 x 900 (widescreen) maxxed out, with 4x anti-aliasing. The VIVO is also an excellent feature. I haven't used the Tenomichi software yet, but it appears to be a full featured video editing program.

Cons: There is basically no documentation on using VIVO. The manual tells you how to connect cables, but that is self explanatory. There is a learning curve for VIVO.
To view live video input, download Dscaler (freeware) and get a cable from Radio Shack to convert from RCA audio jacks to a headphone jack to input sound. Dscaler is a must-have for VIVO. Software such as this should have been included though.
The fan is noisy when running games. Not horrible though. The fan is only noisy when I'm running demanding games.

Other Thoughts: excellent for games
get Dscaler to watch video
(should have been included)
the card looks cool
(try to show it off)
extra noise from fan
(mild, not annoying)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This card is a very powerful card and one of the best bang-for-the-buck units even without any rebates. I run this card with 2 1600x1200 LCDs and the image quality is excellent- much better than my old NVIDIA 6200TC. It is extremely powerful too- I run Half-Life 2 at 1600x1200 with everything up at the maximum and I get 50-80 fps on average, sometimes more. This card has also has a pretty good cooling setup for being just a one-slot card. The fan is usually very quiet or off, only occasionally making a quiet noise as the core gets hammered under heavy use. You need a decent PSU to run this class of GPU, but this unit is far more efficient than the NVIDIA 7xxx series, so a 400W unit will do you fine.

Cons: It runs a tad warm (80 C under a very heavy extended load) but the fan takes care of it pretty well. The card is very large- it spans the entire length of my ATX board, so between keeping a slot open next to it to keep airflow to the fan and the size, don't put this in a smallish case.

Other Thoughts: This card actually does work well in Linux with ATI's latest fglrx drivers (I run Gentoo 2006.1 AMD64, Xorg 7.1) and the drivers were no harder to install and set up than NVIDIA's. I was surprised at that one. So if you are somebody who dual-boots between Windows for games and Linux for real work, this is your card.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Cost Effective

Pros: For the price of two of these and the performance in Crossfire when compared to its NVIDIA competition, you can't and won't go wrong. This thing is blazing fast and solid as a rock.

Cons: None
