Summary: I got this thing last week to replace a Radeon 9600. The only reason the old card was replaced was because the cooling fan on it got noisy. ATI makes its cards so that even something as small as a fan problem means replace the whole card. I got the x1550 and loaded the drivers. Everything looked normal until I tried to play mpeg2 videos. The video froze on the first frame, but the sound kept playing normally. I spent a week updating drivers, codecs settings, etc.
