Make sure you have a P4

Pros: Dell Demission 2400 ; Celeron 2.4 GHz, 768 Mb of ram.. I know some of us can't afford to buy a whole new system, so i do recomend this card for all PCI users.

Cons: Like the title says, Make sure that you have a P4 or else you will not recive the "Full" power of this card...I got a Celeron CPU, this card didnt make my games faster or slower they are still the same compared with the onboard GPU, but I'm sure when I get a P4, this card will allow me to fly on FS9 with 30-40 FPS locked

Other Thoughts: Newegg is amazing =D

update

Pros: System:Dell Dim 3000 P4 2.8ghz 533fsb 1gb Kingston ram 500w Dynapower psu.
I added a new psu to get the 250W Dell psu out & allow overclocking safely.With Ati's overclocking utility this card really performs for PCI.

Cons: Don't use Diamond's drivers or overclocking utility.Neither would work correctly.Their O.C. utility would just crash my box & require a hard reboot to work again.

Other Thoughts: FEAR now runs smoothly OC'ed to 520 mhz & 272mhz mem.The OC utility shows a maximum overclocking of 700mhz., but I don't want to fry the card.Doom 3 runs great on ultra quality with evarything on max.My fx5200 card would not get anywhere close to this performance

Long story but happy ending

Pros: I bought this card based on all the reviews saying this is probably the best you will do if PCI is your only option, which is true for me on a Dell PowerEdge 1600SC. I was also hoping to get a card that could support Vista, even though I am not planning to run it unless a compelling reason arises.

After all is said & done, the card works and seems to work well, although I don't play games and have not tried to install Vista since I have no need for it.

There is a "Vista Readiness Advisor" utility on ati.amd.com and that test passes using this card under Win XP Pro.

Cons: I had a difficult time getting the software installed Under XP Pro. The software on the CD would chug along forever installing .NET, etc, and finally say it can't find any compatible hardware. After much much experimentation, I finally got everything working by using software from ATI's website rather than Diamond's. Furthermore, the install program that combines the device driver and control panel together would not work from either Diamond's ot ATI's site so I had to use the separate programs.

For my system, the magic sequence was:

1 - Must have XP SP2 installed.
2 - Run the install program from the Diamond CD. Even though it doesn't succeed, it gets some components like .NET and VC++ runtime that are apparently necessary for the subsequent installs to succeed.
3 - Install the device driver using the progam from ati.amd.com, 7-2_xp_dd_41238.exe.
4 - Install the Catalyst control panel using the program from ati.amd.com, 7-2_ccc_en_41238.exe.

Other Thoughts: From what I could tell, v7.2 is the same stuff that is on my CD so I don't know why it put up such a fight.

It looks like prior versions of the installation software, for example v6.12 which is from Dec. 2006, may have been a lot simpler. In fact, that was suggested to me by ATI tech support. I was able to install 6.12 and then 7.1 and 7.2. They must have really gunked something up going to v7. If you have problems installing the software from the CD that came with the card, you might try v6.12 from the ATI web site.

I should add that Dell does not like people running "workstation" OSes on their "server" hardware, so there were a number of challenges with this install, not just the video card. Also, the onboard video is a ATI Rage, so perhaps that introduced complications.

A total waste of money

Pros: I really cant think of any, my 5200 ran smoother than this.

Cons: The huge price, for one.
Games actually run slower with this card than a fx5200. If you're stuck with only PCI, save your money and upgrade, this is a waste of money.

Best PCI video available.

Pros: Works fine in my e-Machine T2885. DVI output is excellent. 100% compatible with Windows Media Center Edition. Hooked DVI up to my HDTV.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you are stuck, like me, with just a PCI slot, then this is the best choice!

What you want for Windows Media Center

Pros: Is 100% compatible with Windows Media Center Edition. Coaxial audio out is great.

Cons: None found

Other Thoughts: Coaxial audio out is exactly what I needed for hooking the Windows Media Center computer to my Stereo.
