Hi

I thought this was a decent deal. Saphire makes great cards and this is cheap and decent. The core has 12 pixel pipelines and runs at 500mhz. The mem is at 800Mhz.

Also comes with
Driver Disk
HDTV Cable
DVI to VGA/D-sub Adapter
S-Video to Composite Adapter

Tech Level: somewhat high - Ownership: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Cheap -512 MB
Cons: I've had two of these. Both have broken within a week of owning them. The first one randomly overheated and took a few resistors with it. The second one I'm not really sure- I was in the shower and left the computer on, then I get out and the computer is on the Bios screen. I boot back into XP pro 64bit and the computer shuts off, restarts, and shuts off over and over again until I turn the power switch off on the back of the PSU. Speaking of PSU's I bought a new one; I read on fourms that the symptoms I was experiencing was from a bad PSU. Well $300 later I found out that I had the same problem. I tried everything such as swapping mobos, ram, even a powersupply all while leaving the Graphics card in. It did the same thing so I am convinced that it is this. RMAing ASAP
Other Thoughts: Forget Sapphire.

Saphire is great.

Just because he had a bad expierence doesn't mean the card is bad. If you have a bad expierence with a product you will give it a bad review. If everyone who bought that card and hasd a good expienence wrote a review what would happen?
