Pros very fast, works good with lots of fans
Cons always locking up in games or always recovering from some problem , usually heat.
Pros powerful, good graphics for $ spent
Cons does NOT work with all motherboards (Asus p4p800 series for one) and is NOT 100 % AGP compliant tech support is non existent.
Pros works great, had it since it came out and i still play games alright. upgrading to x800 pro or xt soon
Cons the price was 400$ when it came out. thats lame. and it could have been better spent on muggles(analog gear 8]
Pros Nice directx 9.x features, like advanced lighting, anisotropic filtering, antialiasing...u can say good immage quality and ATI was allways good in 2D like Matrox.
Cons But the main point in 3D accelerating is geometrical calculation and prossecing. And this is still the domain of the unreachable nVidia. Therefor u will always get better results with nvidia if u turn off these quality features and concentrate on 3D calcu
Pros Has some nifty features, and relatively good performance but for a much too large price tag
Cons Too expensive for its performance, a Nvidia Geforce FX 5700 Only prices around $188 and has better performance, and better platform portability
