Pros Great video at a cost.
Cons Its a power hog if you don`t have the right PSU forget it.
Summary This card is fast and has the best graphics. But it`s power hungry as my PSU is a 550 Watts and once in a while it wants more power but this was in the burn stage. Since then its been running fine. (2 mo. ago) Great card if you can spend $500 big ones. I have checked my pc at PC Pitstop and it rates it one if the fastest PC`s.
AMD Althon 64 FX-55, Nvidia(BFG)Geforce 6800 Ultra OC, 2 Gb. DDR PC3200 Ram. But I am still working on getting my WD Raptor working as Windows XP Home will not detect it and am having a bit of a problem. When that is installed I will go back to PC Pitstop and test my system again. My recommendation to buy the best graphics card that I can afford. I have been a ATI man most of my computer days but not now. Plus the warranty is 24/7 365.
Pros 1080i HD This is a Fast.... Fast... Fast... Card
Cons We Need More games for this kind of Card.
Summary I Use this Card for MAYA, Swift 3D and Final Cut Pro HD.
The 1080i gaming is somthing you have to see.
If you Can buy it your G5 will Thank You!
I have not seen a PC that can deal with this card not right out of the box anyway. But with some help it may run in a PC?
Pros I just had to laugh reading all the lame comments by the ATI owners who haven't even used the card. It owns! ATI is second again!!!!!
Cons You will be subjected to bitter taunts by ATI peeps running at half the FPS.
Pros Pixel shader 3.0, which isn't being utilized in any games yet.
Cons Just an over clocked card... Nvidia driver are D-tuned so it can keep up with ATI, poor graphics detail as a result... that’s what they get when they over clock beyond practical.
Pros for games like DOOM i love it it ate the game up and i also got halo for my pc and with all the shooting and explosions happening was PERFECT.
Cons BUT when it comes to true online gaming DONT EVEN BOTHER! i have everquest2 and i suffered from so many freeze frames that i got frustrated and just changed the video card altogether !!! i reinstalled my geforce 4ti and runs even better then the later mod
