Summary: I was a little hesitant in picking up this card, mainly because the 8800GT is the card to get. But with the high demand and short supply of 8800GTs, I decided to pick this card up until I could get the 8800GT. I was upgrading my ATI X600XT card in my Dell XPS400.
Summary: This card is a quantum leap from my ATI Radeon 9800 Pro! From AGP to PCI Express. This card already handles demanding games like UT3 and Gears by itself, with a flawless frame rate. I can't wait to run two of them in sli in the near future.
Summary: is a mid class gpu, working fine at 50ºc shapes in games are good, you can put a 100% distance view with no problems, it's fast, at least for me after the old FX5200 of 256MB, i recommend this gpu if your old card is very OLD
Excerpt: Purpose of purchase Graphics cards have become an essential part of PCs, especially where an on-board card isn't available. I had to buy a new graphics card, when my previous one had trouble coping with the high definition output.
Someting I'd never expect from such an old product

Excerpt: Graphics cards work together with central processing units, sticks of RAM and other components in computers to run programs in the best possible fashion. Without each of these vital pieces to the puzzle, a computer wouldn't function and would probably enter into some kind of 'safe mode' or simply...
Pros: Good graphical performance at a low cost .
Cons: Not as powerful as todays technological beasts .
Excerpt: As a games fan I would love to have the best PC in the world and to custom select every part to play the newest releases but unfortunately I am on a tight budget so for gaming I mainly have to stick to my PS3.
Excerpt: I have used this card for over a year now,i bought it before ATI released their now famous 3xxx range which i regret i had waited.
