"Crash, Crash, Crash"1.0 starson by Jack2466
Pros: None - Don't waste your money!
Cons: Graphics Acceleration Abysmal, Terrible Tech Support, Packaged Software Isn't Compatible w/ Card
Summary: I am not a crazy video gamer. I bought this card to take the load off my processor when editing videos, pictures and watching DVD's etc. I'm running a P4, 2.4 ghz, 2 gig DDR-SDRAM ,XP Professional system which isn't at all too shaby w/ a 4X AGP slot. After installation of the card, my system periodically crashes when given a more complex graphics rendering. In fact, the CD supplied with the card contains 3D-graphic demos which you would think would showcase at a minimum, the card's graphic capabilities. NOT - the demos crash my system (Restarts Windows). Technical support is only available between 9 -7 M-F so it's almost impossible to get help for my home computer during work hours. Not to mention they are closed from 12/26 - 1/9/06 (probably to prevent the inundation of complaints and tech calls after Christmas). The Website is absolutely terrible - no help at all. The software supplied isn't for the specific card (it's for their All-in-One Line) so does NOT work at all. In fact, I had to remove the drivers supplied on the CD and on the Website b/c of compatibility problems. The XP driver was more compatible then the ATI supplied one.
Don't waste your money or mental frustration on this one. I will not be purchasing any ATI products in the future.
