Pros: Had reservations about this board with only 4 reviews, but this board is awesome! Paired with Corsair and AMD X2 4200+ and you can't beat it! It's been solid as a rock! Lots of nice features LED's etc. (look at epox's feature on their website)
Cons: None, love this board.
Pros: Replaced a Nvidia 6600GT - I'm impressed. Crysis isn't "playable" on all the highest settings, it gets around 20 FPS but I could be limited by CPU X2 4200+. Every other game I've thrown at it is unstoppable.
Cons: Fan is kind of loud. Not vacuum cleaner loud or anything, and I don't suspect it's any louder than any other graphics card these days. Wish it was cheaper, but it was worth the money I'm sure.
Overall Review: Would buy again! Never used driver CD, downloaded latest drivers from ATI's website and off I went.
Pros: Much faster than the Corsair Flash Voyager I also received from Newegg. Runs portable apps without lag. It's very narrow so it doesn't get in the way of your other USB ports and feels very sturdy due to the aluminum construction. Would buy again!
Cons: Orange indicator light stays on when connected instead of only blinking during activity.
Nice Speed Up
Pros: Upgraded from a 1700+ - very nice speed boost though it doesn't "feel" 2.5 times faster except when playing games. Multitasking is SMOOTH! DVDShrink and Doom III at the same time!
Cons: None -- great processor!
Overall Review: If I had to do it over I would have stepped up to the 4600+ for a more perceivable speed boost. Probably would waited on the upgrade until I was a little more outdated. (hindsight)
