used graphics boards

M. Pack "Bill", Amazon
4 March 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the X1950 video board as a used item. Like anything used there is a risk. Well, my screen goes black when trying to to play steaming games, like Sniper-Ghost Warrior. On other gamesit seems to be okay, but for steaming it's not good.

Disappointed and closer to the poor house!

Bilbo, Amazon
19 December 2007
  • Summary: I read two hours worth of reviews on several web sites before I took the plunge and purchased this highly acclaimed graphics card by ATI (now owned by AMD). First, I had to replace my power supply unit. The card requires at least 450 watts of power. The PSU cost me $100.00.

Card Too Long

Vance Peterson, Amazon
19 December 2007
  • Summary: I have a HP Pavilion a730n (3 years old) and bought this card to replace an older ATI card. During installation into the PCI Express slot on the motherboard I discovered that the 26 pin power supply connector was in the way.

Fast - yes : plug n play compatible - no

NeoPantera, Amazon
19 December 2007
  • Summary: This card is much faster than my old 6800GS. However, for the first time ever, in the many PCs I have built, I have programs that run but with NO video. I have programs that only run after I deleted all software "updates" that I downloaded from their site.

Not to great

Carmen M., Newegg
29 June 2007
  • Summary: I was very dissopointed in this video card. It can't even run Counter-Strike Source on low settings. My 64 mb can run it on all medium. Very sad.
  • Pros: Nice quiet fan, runs very cool.
  • Cons: Easy to install, setup was cake.

PITA!

Michael L., Newegg
2 April 2007
  • Summary: Using the new drivers, released on 3/28 (CCC 7.3) and didn't help. Out of RMA period, so let's see what happens now.
  • Pros: Hot, hot, hot, long, did I say hot? Great when it works, fine in 2D, on 2142, chokes after ~20 minutes. Power hungry, better have a decent sized PS (500w+).
  • Cons: Fan is awful. Why would you want to push hot air back into the case? Manufacturers need to just use a second slot and exhaust out the rear. Can only assume my issues are heat related, bt with case open and ambient air at 72 degrees, this is hard to imagine. ATI needs to go back to the ATI tools f...

Nice card for the money, but...

Anonymous, Newegg
10 March 2007
  • Summary: I wouldn't buy an ATI product if you plan on using it in vista. Drivers still have issues.
  • Pros: ATI manufactured, GDDR3
  • Cons: Power Hungry, Constantly Glitched in Vista (just on the desktop not doing anything), Weighs a ton. Min 450W PSU w/ PCIe connector required (not documented in description)

Runs hot

Dustin S., Newegg
25 February 2007
  • Summary: Hard to justify with the low-end dx10 cards available for not much more money. I can't recommend with the heat problems. Not being overclockable is unusual but understandable, but overheating at stock speeds is unacceptable and so it may be my last Ati card.
  • Pros: As a longtime NV person, I can say image quality is much better.
  • Cons: Really major design problems with heat. Even at stock speeds I frequently get artifacts if playing for long. And forget overclocking with the stock cooler, a few fsb will cause crashes. Also there are some major bugs in all but the latest drivers.
