Pros: extremely fast and the best that u can buy agp! all games i have are maxed out all the way including left 4 dead, c&c red alert 3, unreal tournament 3, and cod 4 at a resolution of 1440x900

Cons: faster then your processor so u cant utilize to its max. DRIVERS!!! DRIVERS!! DID I MENTION DRIVERS!!!! no matter what u install first or what all drivers wont work atleast for me. not the hotfix or omega or catalist. the last three revisions i tried on all of them and still a no go! i think that if anyone who owns this card goes into administrative tools/computer management/system tools/event viewer/system they would all see logged errors from ati2mtag. all of the games that i named will crash afer a few hours! ALSO FAR CRY 2 WONT WORK AT ALL!!!!

Other Thoughts: great peice of hardware!! do do FOR DRIVERS!! i would recommend this card for a gamer and hope that they come out wit a driver to fix it!
