Pros I have two identical comps, one with a 9600xt and one with a new 9550. tested them both against doom3 and hl2 on "high" graphics, the 9550 out performed my 9600 with doom and were equal with hl2. great option if you don't want to spend $300
Pros Dual monitor support AND video out for multimedia PC uses, fast GPU and 256Mb DDR/SGRAM. Can play full resolution games without giving up shading and other features.
Cons Limited documentation even on ATI's website - no product manual on their support website even though they mention the card on the product pages. Occasional crashes when playing certain video files, VPU recovers but no reason why this happens is apparent
Pros 256MB Enhanced shading Streaming videos look much better(less pixilated) fast clock 8X AGP
Cons No video in ◘
Pros If on a budget this card delivers a lot of bang for the buck. It runs everything that I've thrown at it so far. I didn't have the money for a better card, but I am very happy with what I've got
Cons I haven't tested all of this card's capabilities, but the biggest problem that I've come across is that after a time the screen images appear faded and washed out and I have to reboot.
Summary I know that far better cards are on the market, but would recomend this one to anyone who is on a budget but wants a 256 meg video card.
"AMAZING CARD!"on by BradPois
Pros Great picture quality. AGP. Runs amazingly on games.
Cons There are none
Summary This is a great graphics card. It is also fairly inexpensive. It runs all the new games. It still lags a bit in "high intensity" moments in Call of Duty 2 but thats not a big problem for me. I would recomment this to everyone.
