PowerColor Radeon X1650PRO 512MB GDDR2 AGP 8X Video Card X1650PRO 512M AGP
PowerColor Radeon X1650PRO 512MB GDDR2 AGP 8X Video Card X1650PRO 512M AGP

Pros: Price was the same money as the Sapphire x1650(no Pro) 256MB.

Cons: Even my previous card was made by Sapphire and I was very satisfied with it, I was willing to give Powercolor a try for the 512MB memory and Pro edition sake. The day I got the card, install it, and it acted up. As soon as I installed the video driver, it BOD my computer. Went to Safe Mode, removed the ATI driver, reboot the machine. Computer worked fine. I had keep reboot my machine to safe mode to try different drivers. I'd tried latest drivers from ATI as well as PowerColor. None worked. After few hours, I decided to give up hope on PowerColor and order a Sapphire. The Sapphire X1650 256MB works out of box.

Overall Review: I WILL NOT TRY ANOTHER POWERCOLOR PRODUCT AGAIN. WASTE OF MY 6 HOURS.
