Summary: This video card arrived not working properly. The seller was very gracious and apologetic about the problem, but as they looked for a replacement, their research found that this video card is very prone to malfunctions. Knowing this, I would not recommend it. Unfortunate, since it's the only video card that officially supports Dual Link DVI in the Power Mac G4.
Summary: I've only owned this card for 6 months and the cooling fan just started making a loud annoying noise. That's unacceptable for a $190 card! ATI won't send me a new fan so I guess they expect me to pay $10 to send it back in for repair, leaving me with no card and costing me more than just buying a new fan. I think I'll just unplug the fan, let the card burn up and then never buy ATI products again.
Summary: Bought the card and it ran fine for a few weeks, then suddenly without any changes to hardware/software the card started to freeze in 3D games. I thought it was a driver issue so i tried ALL drivers... Still no stable system now i've finally been able to get my system stable enough for 3D games. With Fast Write of, AGP set to 4x. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CARD TO ANYONE.
Summary: This card certainly functions as advertised when you first install it. Graphics performance is impressive, installation is straightforward. But heaven help you if you need customer service or have to install new driver software. Customer service is only given for 30 days and you must register your card on the ATI website to receive it or PAY for it! I accidently mistyped the purchase date when I registered my card and was refused help!
Summary: This is my wife's account. I am just using it to write this review. I bought this about 2 weeks ago and I am taking it back today. from the first time I installed it I had nothing but problems. When I first installed it the computer would not go to windows. Instead my monitor would show an "Out of range" message. After I finally got the card working it would randomly kick the driver out and refer back to 16 color 640X480. SO I would have to restart the computer.
