Summary: the ati radeon x800 pro 256mb graphics card is a very good especially if you have been using a weak integrated onboard graphics card that is 64mb. do your self a favor and get a dedicated card that is stronger than a 64mb integrated graphics card like the x800 if you want to be able to watch movies or play some some early 21st century pc games.
Summary: Got this card years ago; I remember how stoked I was to finally have a video card suitable for gaming. It was used when I got it, but even so, it's still humming along rather happily in one of my older AGP-motherboarded PCs. It had some overheating issues for awhile (would eventually shut itself off while playing more intensive games). An aftermarket heatsink/fan fixed that issue.
Summary: I bought several of those in order to use them on several older workstations equiped with older xeon processors and 6gb of ram.With those they were able to run windows7 x64 with aero enabled with no problems. Overall great bang for your bucks if you are trying to squeeze the maximum out of older AGP port equiped machines.
Summary: This is a high-end card from around 2004 and supports DirectX 9.0b. It easily plays most 3D based games from around that time. Personally the most demanding games I've played using it are AOE 3 and NFS: Most Wanted. It works well with WinXP Pro SP3. Drivers for the card can be easily downloaded from the AMD/ATI website. VIVO is an additional, useful feature that is included on some cards.
Summary: I have been using ATI graphic cards for many years. When my old one in my desk top started acting up, I decided it was time to upgrade. Most of my computers are old technology or legacy as some call them, but they work fine for my needs and the parts are usually pretty cheap/inexpensive. I have had problems recently finding older AGP cards and when this card came up on eBay I went for it. It has both a VGA and DVI output.
Summary: I dont care much for NVIDIA..cards please stop telling me "its faster" as far as quality is concerned ATI is always on top .. if your computer is lacking in "speed" then go ahead and get yourself a NVIDIA card ..but if your like me and are packing a 3.2 p4 w/4 gigs of RAM then do yourself a favor and get this card.. you'll be glued to your seat for ages...
Summary: This card is good, but for the same price you can get a geforce6800GT, which beats this card by a lot. You dont need dual p4 processors like someone said, it will still be a good increase from your last card even if you only have a 2 ghz processor. Good card, once the price drops $100.
Summary: I benchmarked this GPU and GF6800GT. X800 Gives me ~9,400 Marks (Tested w/ 3DMarks03, P4 3.2, 1GB DDRRAM) and 6800GT Gone up to ~10,800 Marks. But technical specs are same. Except X800 does not support Vertex Shader 3. So I gives X800Pro 4 Stars.
