SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 2400PRO DirectX 10 100232L 256MB 64-Bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: When and if you get it to work you can play Halo at all max 800x600 30fps average. It plays Ut2004 at mostly medium/low settings at 640x480 with like 100fps with only 1 second random dips into 20fps. It can play Ut3 at some lower settings with acceptable fps, even though my cpu is the minimum requirnment for the game. and Notice how i said this card is fine when or IF you can get it working.

Cons: ati does not support this card, their site only has special driver updates for the Pci express version. Also when you go to update your drivers from the sapphire site, they dont work. The driver on the disk seems to not want to uninstall. So updating drivers is something you cant do, and the one on the disk installs a weird version of direct x and than it makes the card incompatible with direct 3d games like ut2k4 and halo and UT3. after much work of uninstalling drivers, reinstalling, attempting to update them and downloading direct X from microsoft, and calling tech support, and reinstalling/uninstalling service pack 2, I FINALLY got it work, and still dont know how i did it. it took 2 computer experts 6 days and 20+ hours and a 30 minute tech support phone call to get it working.

Other Thoughts: My computer is Intel Penitum 4 2.0ghz with 1.2gb of ram and this card.
