XP Lives On8/9/2008 1:39:44 PM

Pros: Search is fantastic. Most drivers where found from the website. Sidebar is cool. Loads faster. Media Center Seems Nice. My tuner card was terrible though. Would probably recommend over xp if you don't mind it crashing more.

Cons: WOW THE UAC IS ANNOYING. You end up clicking ok so fast it won't do anyone any good. Can turn it off but then it warns you aobut that constantly. Can turn that off too. LAME. I hate the transparency. Turend it off, I havent even seen much with aero. Locked it up 4 times within a week. Usually due to copying files. Explorer / IE crashes whole computer still crashes with it. Not customizable. Why can't i change the login background? The turn off button puts the computer in standby by default. Windows Media player has a networking service running by default?

Overall Review: Did have one issue where I loaded an older x64 driver for my vid card. Vista wouldn't even boot in safe mode. Had to start completely over.

Its dims the house lights8/9/2008 1:39:43 PM

Pros: Just playing. Powers the comp. No problems. Looks good. Powers quad core, 2 hd's, and 1 vid card.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I freaked cause there was no 4 pin power. If you look close the 8 pin is 2 4's that can split.

Great for the price8/9/2008 1:39:43 PM

Pros: Seems way better than expecting. I notice the biggest performance from the quad core in browsing the web. Runs games fine. Don't think I've maxed it out yet.

Cons: Apparently you can't overclock these as much as the higher black box editions. Haven't tried.

Overall Review: Specs: MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail AMD Phenom 9600 OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB

Expecting a bit more8/9/2008 1:39:42 PM

Pros: Good Price. Quite. The fan is freaking huge. Impressive looking vid. card.

Cons: Expecting a bit more. 2 of these and you'd be set. Does run any game. I read one review that said COH on high settings for 52 fps. I get 52 fps max but the avg is around 8. Had to lower its settings a bit. No games run on the highest settings but run fine on average to high settings. I've played COH, Bf2, BF2142, Portal so far on it.

Overall Review: I think i did ok with this vid card. I hate it when you spend over a 100 bucks and they put a 10 cent fan that fails within a month. Don't think that will happen with this card. Great starting card, I'll wait a year or so and get a couple of more to finish of my computer.

Great for the price8/9/2008 1:39:42 PM

Pros: one of the few mother boards with enough pci and pcie cards. can't wait to get 3 vid cards running in here. So far so good.

Cons: Raid doesnt work on the 4 sata drives. There is 2 separate 'promise' sata sata slots that i used that worked fine. shouldn't be an issue unless you are trying to raid more than 2 hd's. i do wish the bois would show what speed the pcie cards are connected at (8x 16x etc).

Overall Review: i didn't have any problems with my graphics card touching the heat pipe's. System config: ASUS EAH3850 AMD Phenom 9600 Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64 OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM

Avoid this card.5/27/2006 10:07:50 AM

Pros: Graphics look good until they games crash. ATI's Gameshadow is nice (free and finds updates for your drivers and updates for games)

Cons: Horrible card. My screens flicker and windows takes an extra minute to boot up. If install the latest driver (v6.5) no 3d games will run and even firefox flickers as I scroll down a website. With the driver that came with my card (v6.1) I've gotten the blue screen of death once and the my screens have completely frozen several times. Unless anyone would like to buy my card off me, avoid this video card.

Overall Review: NVIDIA all the way. Their software has more options and seems way less buggy.
