Pros: Ran Counter-strike Source at an average of 117FPS and ran COD4 maxed out 4xAA at 50FPS, but i did get it to hit 18fps with just throwing a grenade at the ground.

Cons: Got Unreal Tournament 3 for Christmas and installed it, thinking "This ATI card is gonna rock!" Boy was i wrong, I got worse FPS then i do with my 7600GT. My 7600GT can run it at medium settings "all 3's", but the 3850 ran it on 2's and i had to turn other things down to. That really messed it up for me. JUST SAY NO TO ATI.

Other Thoughts: Thought since ATI and AMD joined they might actually have better drivers. What a mistake! Nvidia is way more stable.
