4 out of 5 eggsits ok...just ok

Pros: graphics are amazing in games...stays really cool...good for watching movies

Cons: well i bought this card instead of an x850pro and im am disapointed i did...fps are no different than a 9800xt (128 bit) ..the ram sucks it lags on doom 3 on high settings

Other Thoughts: i got this card for some hardcore gaming graphics but i was let down... my system specs are : pentium 4 HT 3.0ghz, 2gb of ram, and this x1600pro...im not saying its a horrible card but it could be a little bit more powerful to support all the features it comes with ...u cant use even half of them

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: I have the open box version of this card and it is a huge improvement over the 9550 that i had. i would recomen this to anyone with AGP motherboards

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: The cooler takes up an extra slot, so if you dont have enough room as it is, dont buy this case

4 out of 5 eggsgreat AGP value

Pros: This card is a great value for an AGP card. I bought the open box version, so it was a real steal. A vast improvement over my ATI 9600 card. I got about 6700 in 3DMark03, and I can turn on ALL the eye-candy in UT2004 and HL2:Lost Coast at my LCD's native res of 1280x1024.
Fan is very quiet, and helps air circulation in my case (just leave that second slot cover off, or you'll be complaining about heat instead of praising coolness)

Cons: Not quite enough power to run with Anti-Aliasing on modern games. My Open-Box version came with only the card, nothing else. This was expected of course, but some lucky ones have reported receiving a complete package so I was hoping to get lucky too.

Other Thoughts: Were I paying full price for an AGP card in this range, I'd probably opt for a nVidia 7600GS card, or a 6800XT (the potentially unlockable one from Bxxstar rather than the locked Xxx). But between the open-box buy and a fifty-dollar gift cert, for me those cards were over 2x the out-of-pocket price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Mac OS x86

Pros: Fully supported with Apple drivers under 10.4.6.

Cons: In Doom3 and Counter Strike Source, framerates are equal to my old 9800 Pro. I'm running a Cel-D 3.6GHz with 1gb RAM.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card, even with 300-watts!

Pros: This card runs any game iv thrown on it at high settings and great resolution, even HL2. My pervious onboard card would not render water based elements in HL2 and this did it perfectly while maintaining frame rates. Iv had no heat issues, no sound issues of it being to loud (Cant even hear it), and it evened up working great even on my little 300watt power supply.

Cons: None to speak of... It had a little bit of a hard time rendering one HL2 mod, but It didn't surprise me due to the massive ammounts of poly's involved in the mod.

Other Thoughts: Great card for the money, most likely my last AGP based card, and I would recommend it to anyone stuck with AGP, as an awesome little budget card.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: Good bang for the buck. Not as good as the X800's for a few bucks more, but worth it for the value. Played all the games i wanted with medium to high settings

Cons: No heatsinks on the ram. Didn't come with Flat Out.

Other Thoughts: My biggest concern with this before i bought it was its power req. It wants at least a 450w psu. I got it and hooked it up, just got done with a 6 hour run on HL2 with all settings maxxed and had no trouble with a 350w psu.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat AGP for the price...

Pros: For the type of card and the amount of money spent I am very happy the card. After researching the specs I feel the card has lived up to what I expected of it. All the games I had trouble playing or bad lag have become much more enjoyable. Also the ATI Catalyst software is great IMO, much better than anything I've seen from Nvidia for a while.

Cons: Of course its AGP but when you are like me and can't afford a proper motherboard upgrade a card like this will do the trick. So I'd rather have PCI but I have no choice ATM. I suggest if your PC supports PCI cards, you should take that road. It only makes more sense.

Other Thoughts: I was a die hard Nvidia fan and thought thats all I'd use for the longest time. But after having 3-4 Nvidia Gforce4 cards burn out on me with their weak little fans. I took it upon myself to give ATI a try...and to say the least I am very pleased with them thus far.

Plus if you are thinking about getting this card and had fan problems with gcards like myself I suggest you don't pass this one up. For myself it was a BIG SELLING point! ;-)

1 out of 5 eggsProblems Too Comon for X1600

Pros: Great specs for an AGP card in this price range.

Cons: Never saw the promised performance. Card would constatly cause screen to flicker or freeze. Graphis while playing any game on high or low settings would have very slow frame rate while trying to manuver around on the screen.

Other Thoughts: The X1600PRO series from radeon is having problems. Stay away from it. Just read many reviews on this series from radeon, regardess if AGP or PCI express. Many people are having simular issues.
RECOMENDATION: I just RMA'd this card for a geforce 7600 series (PCI express, much cheaper and spent savings on new motherboard). Try this or the radeon x800, great specs and not very many complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsgood card for agp4x

Pros: Good card so far. Had it for 1 week now on 4xAGP mobo. No problems with instsll. Runs Doom3 at 12x10 ultra-settings with all options on averaging 35 to 45 pfs. BF2 runs in high 20s fps at medium, settings 1024x768 and high textures. cpu is only xp2000 and 1gig pc2700 ram. Should do somewhat better on 8xapg and faster cpu, etc. Oblivion runs 12x10 on medium settings w/ hdr around 20+ frames. Farcry ran 12x10 everthing on very high at 30to 50, never dropping under 30fps.

Cons: card is good, the rest of my system needs replacing. Could have been shipped with a 6pack of beer. ahh!

Other Thoughts: Replaced a 9000pro 64mb Sapphire that lost 32mb that actually played bf2(all low settings), so it's a huge increase for me. Paid about the same for the 9000pro 4 years ago, so not a bad deal at all. Love the cooler! Helps keep the case cooler than the usual desing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card if you wann't to wait to upgrade to pciX for a bit longer.

Pros: The x1600 series may not be as fast as some of the x800's but it does support sm 3.0 as well as other nexgen features. It performs well enough to run on high settings with almost all newer games. Overall I am very pleased and you will be to if your trying to hold out a bit longer to upgrade to PCIX.

Cons: The fan gets pretty loud under a full load on benchmark programs like 3DMARK0X (Prey runs on all high settings @1200x1600 w/ NO noticable difference in noise), and there is not enough room to put heatsinks on all the RAM chips (Some are located right beneath the cooler).

Other Thoughts: Great card!!! There's plenty of room to suck some more life out of it as far as O/Cing goes. Cost-effective temporary solution to upgrading to PCIX
