I guess I should have asked this b4 I bought it, but regardless, is the RADEON 64mb DDr, VIVO any good? I mean, should I go and exchange it for a NVIDIA card?

Also, what would the best tweaks for it be? I got this radeon tweaker, and I just clicked on everything reccomended, but was that a good descision? what are the best tweaks for it mailiny running games in d3d and opengl, but opengl foremost.

Thanks

Its a great card. I dont need 300 FPS when I can get 250FPS and better quality colors. :)

I used Radeon Tweaker and did the same thing you did with the recommended stuff. Seems to be working out good for me.

I have to agree with the rest of the guys. I replaced my V5 5500 with a Radeon 64 DDR w\vivo. Best thing I ever did! I love this card. Screen capture's not bad either.
