"Great card, horrible software & drivers."1.5 starson by kr580
Pros: Pretty good video card without drivers and software installed.
Cons: Absolutely terrible software and drivers. This wastes potenial with all the cool features.
Summary: Loads of cool features, they just don't work right. The features on the box look cool but when you install the software and drivers you'll find the software is very unstable. I had this card for a little under a year and it never has worked right for me. Pretty much any ATI program I opened up would crash in a few minutes. The TV program messed up my sound as well. Before I installed the card the sound was normal but after the installation it would get REALLY LOUD when I opened the TV and then almost silent after the TV was closed.
I'm looking for a new card right now but for the moment I totally reinstalled XP (due to the card's software plus a couple other things) and put in the card but didn't bother with drivers/software and it seems to be working pretty well as a video card (no other features).
