1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet fan.

Cons: It met about 15% of my expectations. This is a micro step up from ATI 9200 SE 128mb. Does not work on Windows 2000 with ATI driver at all. It has two DVI plugs but according to instruction book can support one DVI monitor; "a lot of sens". Etc.

Other Thoughts: This is my first and last GeCube product I bought.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

Pros: Is what it says, Does what it says.

Cons: Supplied disc didn't work- had to install drivers via ATI website.

Other Thoughts: Rebate window frame is very small. I just got to installing it a few days ago, and it's one day before the $20 rebate expiration.

5 out of 5 eggsTrue X1650PRO

Pros: -Serious bang for the buck
-Midrange card that plays DX9 games well.

Cons: -AGP interface. This would be my last upgrade before buying an entirely new system.
-If you actually spend an enormous amount of time playing games, spend more and get the X1950.

Other Thoughts: Contrary to a previous review, this card does indeed contain a x1650pro GPU. The misunderstanding arose from GeCube's labeling scheme, in which the GeCube "X1650" uses the ATI X1650 PRO and the GeCube "X1650PRO" uses the ATI X1650 XT.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Simple install into an HP 523n Desktop. I had an ATI 9250 (256MB) prior, so this new card is certainly an improvement in performance

Cons: Careful on the ordering...this is NOT an X1650 "PRO" as stated in the specs section and in the item title. Simply an X1650 as can ben seen on the box in the image section.

Other Thoughts: Fast shipment from Newegg, two days and it was here.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat performance, but LOUD

Pros: Like mentioned below, this card is great for driving dual monitors with the two DVI outputs. I play a lot of Civ IV on a P4 custom box...this card sped up rendering and gameplay in a big way

Cons: The fan is loud, loud, loud. It is as loud or louder than the four other fans in my box combined. I'm going to try a different fan or a passive VGA cooler.

Other Thoughts: Great value for the price, you might just have to figure out a different cooling scheme if the fan noise bothers you.

4 out of 5 eggsNot to jinx myself here, but...

Pros: Cheap and beefy.

Cons: Quite a pain to set-up.

Other Thoughts: Upgrade from my ancient Radeon9200 and my last AGP card before I trash this PC and build a new one.

Although I was reluctant to buy this, seeing the lack of comments, and the less than stellar reviews. BUT... so far it's working quite well, although my system does seem a little slower now.

WoW on highest graphic settings runs at 25fps.
Bioshock performs fairly well on medium graphic setting.
Hitman Contracts runs perfectly with everything maxed.

Good enough for me. Probably not the best card out there, but for the money it's worth it.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible. 2x DoA

Pros: None.

Cons: A waste of your restocking fee. First card was DoA, which I RMA'd for replacement. I got excited when the replacement card had Samsung memory modules (first had Hynix), but it, too, did nothing. My primary computer is an older Tyan MPX Dual processor MB (AMD-760 chipset). I tested the second card in a Dell Precision 530 (i860 chipset)... nothing.

Don't waste your time.
