4 out of 5 eggsNot bad and very reliable

Pros: I've had this card since last xmas when I built my first computer. I've never had any hardware or software issues with it. No glitches or heating problems. It's not the best gaming card however, although my hardware isn't the best for gaming either.

Cons: When I was first installing windows (SP2), the OS wouldn't load properly due to driver conflicts with the card and SP2, had to install XP with an old card before I could use this. I thought it was a defective XP disc, and it landed me a free 2nd copy of XP :D so i guess that's not so bad.

Other Thoughts: I'm slowly upgrading my computer, and in turn I'm replacing components since I've gotten more into PC gaming. I'm replacing this with an ASUS N6600/TD/256 Geforce 6600 256MB 128-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card. Even though their specs are similar I hear that the Asus has better performance, so we'll see...besides I'm giving this to my brother 1.6 Gig P4 Compaq, qhich desperately needs a better video card, so it won't go to waist.

What I have right now
AMD Athlon XP 2700+
512 DDR RAM (soon to be a gig)
ABIT KW7 motherboard (works great, replaced my old Chaintect SKT600 piece of junk)
80 Gig primary HD
30 Gig storage HD
Sony DVD/CD-RW drive
Sony 3.5 floppy drive
350W PSU
2 Exhaust Fans
The Jetway card currently

next up is the RAM and PSU...before I build a true gaming comp =)

3 out of 5 eggslike sawdust in the gastank

Pros: Starts out running pretty well. Can be overclocked with the right tools to the standard XT speed (and it really DOESN'T start at the right speed. The people who say its at 391/700 are RIGHT). Easily fixed though with the omega package.

Cons: when overclocked, it runs VERY hot and wears out faster. I have had this card for 9 months and it suddenly and completely crapped out. Scrambled screens. I tried it in another computer and it did the same thing. When I first started using it, sometimes it would skip frames and deflate the benchmark framerates, like it was having trouble keeping up. Could have something to do with the fact that I had to overclock it to get it to the correct core and memory speeds.

Other Thoughts: I love ATI products, but this one must be an issue with JetWay. I will never again buy a JetWay product, because they apparently make things inferior.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent..with a but...

Pros: Fast

Cons: Outdated

Other Thoughts: This card is fast and nice but with one hindering flaw this card was top of the line 2 years ago when i got it 2 years ago. There is no point to getting this card now you can have your choice of newer card in the same price range alot of witch still cary the agp bus. but if your willing to upgrad your cpu and board there is 512mb x1600 pro that runs for less money. There is no point to purchasing the card. You could also hold out a little longer because microsoft is bound to change the direct x specs pretty soon it due.

5 out of 5 eggsGO PCI-e instead for better cards

Pros: Great card that pllays games well. thew new x series are new cards that at least use different cores and types of memory showing that are definetley not the same as 9xxx cards showing that te reviewer that said they were just renamed is wrong.
dif memory + dif cores = new cards with new names

Cons: none

Comments: kraeloc what are u talking about the 9000 series and X series are entirely different. They are not just 9000 series pci-e. The x800 will outperform this card. X and 9 are two seperate generations.

5 out of 5 eggsRE: RE: question

Comments: Actually, the x-series cards are the same thing as the 9xxx series cards, just with a PCIe interface. An x800 256 is the same as a 9800 256. ATi decided that their existing cards should be completely renamed for use with a PCIe interface. But now they're confusing it even more, by having AGP version of their PCIe lines of cards.

And btw, a X800 AGP 256 is almost the same price as a 9800 AGP 256.

This is a great card, and I'm buying one, I think.

5 out of 5 eggsRE: question

Comments: yeah, just save some cash and get a 6600gt agp or an x800. if you ever plan on using linux, i strongly recommend the 6600gt. but if you honestly dont care or prefer ati, get the x800; about same performance as 6600gt, little cheaper right now on newegg. in either case, you'd still be better off than with any 9800 series card. but, if you really really want a 9800, get the xt. its the best of the 9800 line. plus you dont have to oc, so you get to keep your warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsReasonable Card.

Comments: This card is pretty reasonable, especially for those of us still using AGP. It works really well in my shuttle XPC with only a 220W PS. I had to RMA my first one. When I got my replacement, it worked great. The cooling it really cheap and heatsink heats up very fast. I'm currently seeking replacement cooling. Other than that, it's a reasonable buy.
