Pros: Correcting my Earlier Commentary: See 2 Star Rating "Works well on linux"
I found after extra testing a bit of inspiration. Ignore the suggestion on Gigabyte's website. This card was only stable for me with the versions of drivers available through Gigabyte's website and the disk that came with it.
Cons: See earlier commentsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great on Linux, good profile, well designed, runs very cool even with a little overclocking.
Cons: Does not function with Windows 7 ATI Drivers, at all. Constant crashes and can't even handle aero functionality in Windows 7.
This problem is widespread and easily found in google. Some of the fixes out there work for some people, none of them worked for me. Spent the last 48 hours doing nothing but playing with driver tweaks, voltage settings to the GPU, and reformatting my drives. Stil do not have it working for longer than 40 min at a time.
Other Thoughts: If ATI were to fix this 3 year old issue with their driver sets, or you are going to install this on a system that is not running one of the commonly affected OS's then I recommend this card. But as it does not work well with Windows 7 I cannot recommend this for most users.READ FULL REVIEW
