Summary: Replaced an ATI 9550 with this on my old Compaq. It works great and I can play some games I couldn't before. Be aware of the power requirement though, especially the amps. Older or lower watt/amp power supplies may not handle the HD3650.
Summary: I bought this Graphics card for my Son's several year old computer. After reading all the reviews we could we decided on trying this one since it said it was for older computers. My Son is into gaming and before he installed this new graphics card the old one kept over heating and shutting off. After installing this card it hasn't shut off at all. Grapics are awesome looking now too.
Summary: In my attempt to keep my ancient Athlon 2600XP system going, I started looking for the best AGP video card I could find. I found this Sapphire Radeon HD 3600 and gave it a try. It was used, but with ebay protection and good feedback on the seller, I went ahead. The price was excellent. I don't think there is a more powerful AGP video card available. The Radeon 3600 gave my system an new lease on life. This sums it up; I can play Bioshock on my computer. How?
Summary: I put this card into an aging dual processor Dell 8300. Absolutely no problems were encountered with hardware or software. If you need a new card for your old computer - give this one a look. It is not expensive and its performance is great for the price.
Money well spent, though may pose some problems during installation for beginners

Summary: I bought one of these cards off Ebay for $45 even, and am glad I made the purchase. I needed it to replace the subpar onboard graphics of a Dell Optiplex GX260, which only has an AGP port. Along with this card, I also bought a replacement power supply, since this card requires external power. The box states that a minimum of 300W is needed, so I bought a 430W Thermaltake PSU I found on this site for around $40.
Summary: This really is a great card for the cost. I did some research, and $50 for a video card with 120 stream processors is pretty good. I am currently using Windows Vista 32 Bit. Previously, my windows rating was a 4.3 due to my old video card.
I installed this video card, rebooted my computer, uninstalled my old video driver and went online to get the latest driver/video card software for this card (didn't bother using the included disc).
Summary: This is a very good card, No jerkiness at all when fast scrolling or gaming. I was reluctant to buy anything but a nvidia based card, which I have used for many years, but this one is well built and very sturdy. It booted up with the supplied driver, works great on Vista and Windows 7 os, I reccomend it for everyone. I bought it because I have 2 monitors and I wanted to connect both with DVI cables.
