Rebate Absurdity 9/1/2008 10:33:32 AM

Pros: The card is OK for the money.

Cons: Just OK

Overall Review: I've filled out a lot of rebates over the years, but I NEVER have seen a process so obviously contrived to confuse and trip the customer. Download the form and you will see what I mean. I just spent 1/2 an hour with the form.

I strongly feel that Newegg should not legitimize this type of corporate treachery by participating in the process.

They can offer no legitimate reason for the number of pot holes, walls and obstacles they require for a simple $15 rebate.

I will NEVER buy another Sapphire product!

Rebate never arrived 8/30/2008 10:07:55 AM

Pros: Passive cooling.

Cons: Drivers are incompatible with ATI Wonder TV Tuner card. Nearly impossible to get a clean install. This is an ATI issue not necessarily Saphire.

Overall Review: Saphire never sent my rebate. I followed their instructions to the letter. I guess not paying rebates saves them money! Won't buy any more cards from these guys...

surprised 8/26/2008 6:55:52 PM

Pros: very inexpensive card with great features like: DDR3, PCI express 2.0, builtin audio for HDMI monitors
NO Noise
NOT HOT - I'm not sure where everyone else ran into problems but then again I have good case ventilation (3x120mm)

Cons: Average performer, if you can call it a con for the price
I took one egg off because I couldn't call a sub $50 card "excellent" Maybe if it had GDDR4/5 - sorry...

Overall Review: My old (exactly one year this month) xfx Nvidia 8600gt scored higher in the vista experience score (this card - mid 4's) but the feel that this card has is the same. For example when I run Itunes visualization it has the same frame rate (~58) It does seem to make my Nbridge run hotter for some reason. Also my CPU runs about 3-4 degrees hotter when I'm using it, depending on what I'm doing. But then again my Nvidia card made so much noise with it's little fan running at ~6K RPMs.

great card 8/26/2008 1:19:05 PM

Pros: fanless, great performance when i paired it with the 780g IGP 3200.

Cons: the only choice for a 3470, could have more brands to choose from, not 128bit memory

Overall Review: igp 3200 + 3470 supposed to get near performance of a 8600gt considering the 3dmark score over 3000 i'd say is better than the 8600gt.

good deal for poor pc gamers.

Great! Couldn't be happier 8/8/2008 7:10:48 PM

Pros: Great featuers and price. I was looking for a display adapter under $100 with dual-DVI and fan-less passive cooling. There aren't many choices. This card delivers on all counts and much more. Everything just works...exceeding my expectations. Buy it!

Cons: None.

Overall Review: The adapter is connected to my two 1600x1200 monitors. I am not a gamer and can't judge gaming performance. It's perfect for my applications and photo processing needs. I'm sure it would do a reasonble job on more demanding tasks as well. It also looks like an ideal card for a media center computer due to its silent operation, HDMI output with full HD 1080p, digital audio via HDMI (it's an HD audio controller as well), and HDCP copy protection support. Some say this card runs hot. The ATI Catalyst Control Center says the GPU is 53 degrees C and I presume the card operating within its design parameters.

Good unit, no S-VHS out problem 8/6/2008 9:36:43 PM

Pros: I previously left a review that indicated there were problems with the TV-OUT. The problems were due to a bad cable, not the video card. Sorry about that.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Gigabyte GA-EX38-DS4, Intel E8400, 4x1GB Crucial DDR2-1066, Sapphire HD3470, Thermaltake W0144RU 600W. XION XON-101 case, Seagate 250 GB HD SATA2 7200 rpm ST3250410AS, Pioneer IDE DVD burner DVR-115DBK, floppy drive.

Good but HOT 7/29/2008 10:56:27 PM

Pros: Works great for my DX9 games that ran poorly on my old system that had RAM and FSB bottleneck even though I had an AGP X1950Pro, although I have this crossfired to an HD3200 IGP.

Cons: VERY HOT, I dont have a lot or big fans, because I enjoy quiet PCs, so with low airflow this gets really hot even when just idling, more than any high performance card I have had when gaming. I am going to have to put a fan on it.

Poor 2D performance 7/25/2008 11:12:14 AM

Pros: VERY quiet. 3D performance is pretty good for a 256MB card. Fits into one slot.

Cons: Gets VERY hot. Case temp rose with this card installed. I have good case cooling so the card did not harm anything else, but after an hour of operation you can't touch it barehanded. Also catalyst drivers interfered with ATI TV Wonder Pro. Catalyst uses quite a bit of computer resources - slows overall performance slightly. Some windows open slowly - due to poor 2D performance.

Overall Review: I had quite a bit of trouble getting this card to cooperate with my ATI TV Wonder Pro card. After three days of uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, catalyst controls, and multimedia center, I got the TV to work. But then the HD3470 set itself as the default audio source and I had to reset the audio source default to my AC97 so I could hear the TV. Then the TV showed lots of artifacts and squiggly video so I did a 2D video benchmark test on it (SI Sandra and Performance Test v.5). I found the 2D performance to be about 1/5 what my previous nVidia 5750 card did. I was shocked! And no amount of catalyst play would get this card to do decent 2D performance. I would not recommend this card to anyone wishing to do 2D work - particularly video or TV on a PC.
