Summary: After trying this card for a few days all I can say is YUCK to ATI. Stick with Nvidia if your a seriour gamer. On both my systems with the lastest drivers installed, this card had strange glitches when multitasking (chatting, surfing, etc) not only that but your could really tell a visual difference...
Summary: Great card, worked right out of the box. Good card to boast your system with 256 video ram freeing up the processor and getting the most out of your slightly older AGP 2X and 4X slot without upgrading motherboard and power supply.
Summary: Pros - Decent performance. Very high resolution. Smooth video playback. Broad compatibility. DX9, DVI and SVHS capable. Supports Windows Vista. The low power consumption means the Heatsink needs no noisy and unreliable fan. Cons - Is an older design, doesn't support the latest games well.
Summary: Well, Day Four of my attempt to play Half Life 2 Episode One with my Radeon 9550. I have installed and reinstalled different sets of drivers more times than I have eaten during that time, and still the thing blows up in my face.
Summary: Needed to update my old card for a MMOFPS, and this card helped the performance out a great deal for the value. If you want to save some money, and are putting off getting a new computer for while, this product will work well.
Summary: i had trouble with an ATI radeon card that required its own extra molex connector (a 500 meg card) honestly, it wasn't worth the hassle... in contrast, this card installed like a charm & worked great out of the box.
Summary: Evaluated this vs several others, and found that specs seemed comprable to cards costing $30-$100 more. Performance is excellent, installation and driver update all told was under 20 minutes. Highly recommended for those making the jump up from 64/128 MB AGP cards.
