I have to admit, this card works for me. Had a VD5 AGP 64mg for awhile and decided to try something new. So went and purchased a Leadtek Geforce2 32mg DDR. I was'nt really impressed that much with that card. So decided to return and purchase this Radeon 64mg DDR. The colors and picture are really sharp with this one. The performance is pretty good too. Though 3dmark2001 does'nt seem to give everyone good scores no matter what the card is. Ran 3dmark 2000 and got 5816 with 1024x768 true 32 and refresh rate @ 85. Now the Geforce gave me better scores, but since to me a good monitor and video card is the most important tool to the computer since you have to look at it all the time.

Preach it brother! The Radeon LOOKS so much better than the competition! I'll lose a few FPS any day for a prettier picture.

Yeah i love mine.
i just bought a longer s-video cable (12foot from shack) so i could play unreal tournament on my 27 inch t.v. and its awsome!!!
the stock cable that came with my card was too short at only 6 foot.
i wont be needing a new card for a long time.
Bdf24 i think u will be very pleased with this card. 8)
