Pros Runs Half Life 2 / UT2004 without a hitch
Cons Open GL support could be a bit better
Summary Its a amaing card for under two hundred. I run Half Life 2, and UT2004 with all high settings and eye candy on at over 60 FPS. Its a great deal. Doom 3 runs fine, over 30 FPS on high, but future Open GL applications may tax this card. Honestly, if you dont have the money for a ATI based shader model 3.0 capable card right now, I would say this should hold you off till the X1600 or X1800 is selling for a reasonable price next year sometime, its a nice card. I read reports of noise other places, but no problem here, fan is fairly low sound. Also it does not seem to be a power hog, I have a std stock 300 watt PSU, and everything is running just fine. Thanks ATI!!!
Pros Made my system MUCH faster
Cons None really
Summary I really love this card. I got it on sale for 150$ and it runs great!
Pros can play Half-Life 2 and Battlefield 2 to there highest settings
Cons probably not good for future games like Unreal Tournament 2007
Summary For the price, I am surprised at what this card can do. I can play both half-life 2 and battlefield2 with all the video settings set to high. The only problem is future games like unreal tournament 2007. For that, you will probably need the ati radeon x850xt or the one with 512MB which is around 600 dollars.
Pros easy install, stable performance
Cons not sure yet
Summary I installed the card on a xp media center. The card installed flawless. I also have a separate capture card which windows media player is using. I actually am able to use all the ATI software including the video capture. Performance for gaming is a little bit disappointing; however for video editing it does a great job.
Pros Just what I needed! On a budget this card is the best thing I got!
Cons Rather long installation and if you want to play civ 4 you might have to go thru some painfulness
Summary I loved it! Can see everything for games and it will go great with my ViewSonic VX924 Monitor! Great for Gaming! Recommend Highly!
