"Great card!"on by bdelgado
Pros Makes a big improvement in performance
Cons Haven't found any yet
Summary I upgraded my Dell 400sc from a Radeon 9800 np to the x850 Pro. It was a dramatic upgrade and made a clear difference in Call of Duty 2. Before, it used to stutter in 1280 x 1024 and now it runs flawlessly. Painkiller also looks great. Great card!
Pros Excellent Half-Life 2 performance; balanced; great image quality; among the best of the generation.
Cons Games involving the Doom 3 engine don't run so well.
Summary This has been my graphics card on this computer since day one and I can't find any fault. It has flawless compatibility; excellent Half-Life 2 performance (very good even with 6XAA and 16XAF with max settings). But ATI have only found out how to run Quake 4 with their latest high-end graphics card. This card is great value for money, one of the best mainstream performers.
Pros AGP, not grotesquely large, fan doesn't add too much noise
Cons I have no problems with this card
Summary Despite being part of the last generation of cards (this generation being the Radeon X1000 series), it has enough power to keep on playing for a good 3-4 years. It definately deserves a 10, as I have never experienced a single problem with this card.
Pros The ATI X850 series is the the best possible AGP card from ATI at the time of writing this review.
Cons The lack of wide screen LCD support.
Summary This card is consider last years generation. As I write this review the new GeForce 7800GS is coming out. That is a newer generation of video cards. So a year ago this thing was king but now the 7800GS is AGP king but if you really want the x850 I suggest you go with PIC Express version.
Pros The Best ever for AGP
Cons A little more memory will doo
Summary this Card is the best ever that i used. First i had some weird integrated garbage on my first pc in 98. Then i had the NVIDEa FX5800 or 900 somethin like that. That was the best card for 2003 so now that everyone is stoping to make AGP Cards ATI is the best way to go. The NVIDEa cards the 6800GT and Ultra don't stand a chance. And i am a NVIDea fenatic and i chose to buy this card because ATI makes the most powerful AGP Cards Period.
