Summary: I upgraded a Pentium 2 with an old Diamond card to this, and it rocks. Visual quality is great, even on a 21inch Trinitron monitor at 1600x1200. Graphics are great and games are much more playable.
Summary: I got a Athlon XP 1800+ computer with 1.25 gig of ram, 80 gigs of hard drive..just to name some of the stuff. anyways i upgraded from a geforce 4 ti4200 to this ati radeon 9000 pro...man it runs so smooth, clear and with the ram and cause athlon was meant for ultimate gaming....it runs super awesome. i suggest for u guys with intel p4s or whatever to get a athlon xp its more advanced.
Summary: I just put together my first true computer, I went with all of the gimme's, Pentium 4 2.0, 80 gig hard drive, loads of DDR Ram, and this new card from my favorite card company. I have been playing a few of my games on other peoples computers, and the games were moving at a snail pace. I was running ghost recon on a Radeon 7500, and I was hurting. As soon as I loaded the same game on to my new card I was blown away.
Summary: While this isn't the greatest graphics card out on the market, nor is it even the best value, I strongly believe that this is the right card for me. Both ATI and Nvidia, the two largest graphics card manufacturers, have a reputation for turning out high quality, fast video cards. But, ATI provides better TV-out support, whereas my impression is that Nvidia approaches TV-out as more of an afterthought.
