No problems for me

Pros: This card works just fine. I bought it to hold over my agp system for another year or so. I can play COD4 just fine. No problems with drivers, just installed the latest ones from Sapphire's website.

Cons: No problems with the card yet, but no games or extras come in the box : (.

Other Thoughts: I am running a x2 3600 overclocked to 2.4 ghz, sound blaster, wireless network pci card, 2 hd's, 1 optical drive on an Antec 380 earthwatts power supply and this card is working fine for me.

Ya Feelin' Lucky Kid?

Pros: Many Pro's if you can get through the driver issues and have the many for another Power Supply.

Cons: From what I've seen in reviews and in forums. this card requires a 550 watt power supply which if yours is not then add that to the price of the upgrade. Then you have to fight with the driver issues.

Other Thoughts: All in All the upgrade may or may not be worth it to you. As Clint might say " Are Ya Feeling Lucky Kid?"

Sweet card

Pros: This card is great. I'm using a Pentium 4 system with a 3.2GHz processor, 3gb of ram, on Windows XP, and this card plays almost all new games on medium settings. COD 4, World in Conflict, you name it.

Great card for the price too, big improvement over my old 9600 Pro 128mb. I'm getting smooth framerates across the board. This will surely tide over any gamer for the next year until they can build an up-to-date PC, like I'm planning on doing :)

Cons: Only problem I had with this card was a driver issue. It's easy though. See, the drivers that come with the CD are 7.10 Catalyst drivers, which are ATI's last drivers that support AGP, since ATI's latest 7.12 Catalyst drivers only support PCI-E. But these 7.10 drivers are old and out of date, which slows down the card and how well it plays games.

Anyway, easy solution. Go to Sapphire's website and find the drivers for the HD 2600 series of cards, it's a list. Then scroll down to Windows XP, and download the first one that says "AGP Only!".

Bam, easy, and enjoy! :)

Other Thoughts: GREAT fix for those who can't afford to build a whole PC right now.

Horrible support for certain MOBOs

Pros: Can't say, due to the fact that ATI's newest drivers are bugged with older Nforce2 MoBos, this card's own drivers will not work with it.

Cons: Contacted ATI and Sapphire, both play the blame game, and there are many posts on each site's forums with the same issues and lack of support. Shame on you ATI.

Other Thoughts: Probaly works great on some systems, but support for older Nvidia motherboards is not there. And isnt that the point of it being a new gen video card on an old gen interface?

Great upgrade

Pros: I upgraded from the Sapphire 9600XT 256MB card that was about 3 years old.. this card is MUCH faster. Runs all my games beautifully max settings good frames.

Cons: Barely plays Crysis, not playable in DX10.
If you turn AA on with this card in any game it GREATLY reduces frame rates.

Other Thoughts: I would say for the price it is a great card.

do not BUY this

Pros: well if ya use the old drivers they dont work with older titles

Cons: if ya go ask on sapphires site ya get banned .. like me

Other Thoughts: the card is a TuRE WASTE O $

even with a 550 watt cooler master PSU my old x800xl runs games better ..but if ya wanna run a game that needs pixel shader 3-4 you will need this .. better buy would be an nvidia 7300 agp

No Driver Suport for Vista!

Pros: On paper it looks like the answer to reviving my 8X AGP computer!

Cons: Installed the card and the driver software that came with on Vista... and the advanced features did not work! no video playback or 3D rendering :( Tried several other manufactures (including ATI) drivers and tried the omega driver trick but no go. My power supply is 500W and my system meets all the required specs listed for the card to work.

Other Thoughts: No support driver support for Vista. Look around the web and see for yourself many people can not get this card to work to its full potential. Some can get direct x 10 to go and work in some games but to my knowledge there is no driver written to take advantage of the CPU offloading for HD playback. Appears the hardware is there but no one has bothered to write the proper drivers.

Got it to work

Pros: very cheap and perfect boost to an aging system. Quiet--cannot hear it from my armor case. Newegg got it here fast.

Cons: Very screwy driver issues. As I would normaly do, I downloaded the latest drivers from the chipset manufacturers website. They didn't recognize the card. I downloaded the latest AGP only version from Sapphire's website and they didn't work. However, I used the drivers provided in the box and they worked. The UTD drivers from either website should have worked so I do not understand how either company could have released a card whose drivers seem like an afterthought. When I get some numbers off my games, I will let you know how well it is working. One other con- the box says AGP and PCI express required-that may confuse the average joe.

Other Thoughts: Asus A7N8X Deluxe rev.2, althlon 3200XP, 2 Gig corsair ram, thermaltake silent purepower 480w, 18amp single rail, 3 ide hard drives, 1 serial drive, 2 optical drives and a fan controler/multifunction function front panel. XP pro and all software are up to date. I used driver cleaner pro to remove old nvidia card(MSI 5600 died) drivers and tried downloading and installing 7.10, 7.11 and 7.12 drivers before using the disk. Ati overdrive did not work. Box should say have many amps are needed for this card-not just minimum power supply.
