Summary: I was skeptical after reading previous reviews, but haven't had a single problem. Yes, it runs warm, but it's not a problem in a machine with sufficient cooling. Hasn't let me down once after nine months. Would buy it again and recommend to others.
Summary: Card sucks b@lls... I was excited when I received it and went to put it in my pc. It is the right card for my pc.. PCI Express 2.0.. Right size pins/etc.. HOWEVER, ITS TOO BIG TO FIT IN THE EXPANSION SLOT AND TOWER.. P!SSED!!!
Summary: Great card. Based on AG's review it is clear he has no idea what this card is designed to do. It will play all your games, do HDMI with sound, and worked well in XP or Vista. The size of the fan has nothing to do about how good the card is. I threw this into my HDPC and I love it. It is quiet and does a perfect job of feeding my 50'' TV with 1080P and 5.1 sound.
Summary: Bought this card with GREAT optimism. I've owned Visiontek Radeon cards in the past that have performed well above their expectations and had no reason to think otherwise about this one until... I removed it from the package and couldn't believe the size of the fansink... It's PUNY! I replace the X1300 XGE with this ''upgraded'' to the 3000 series and am seriously considering returning this card and purchasing a higher end card...
