5 Star Review   By member 452 - Oct 9, 2003   

Strengths: The best thing out there right now the GPU clock desimates all others

ATI is a great company however nvidia has more powerfull GPUs and is compatible with about everything. Another little thing that is nice about nvidia is that if you have a comparably slow central clock speed the nvidia GA tends to work better than others. Please keep in mind that there is no such thing as a "perfect video card"

2 Star Review   By member meelo - Oct 7, 2003   

Strengths: Fast, 2x the amount memory of most cards

Weakness: missing alot of 3d rendering techniques

I bought this card, anticipating the best - 256 megs - hmmm, not quite - not even close I kept it for only 3 weeks, as explosion scenes, shadows, details and color depth weren't up to snuff compared to my old ATI 8500...although it was alot faster....also the antialiasing wasn't 'good enough' for the money spent on it. I exchanged it for a much cheaper 128 meg card due to the inavaliable games that use 128 megs effectively much less 256... The card I got instead was an ATI 9800 pro; WOOOOW!! The games I play took on a whole new dimension!!! Antialiasing - much NICEer, color is richer and more natural, explosions look VERY realistic and frame rate is smooth as butter. my benchmarks showed the 5900 ultra peaking a little faster in a few titles... but the framerates on those games from the ATI card is more consistant and smoother with better visual quality.

Strengths: Very Very fast,No sounds very smooth, Easy installation,Makes all games work like hell (256Mb very usefull),This card has left Ati radeon 9000 series very very back ,Its the best...

Before this card i had Ati radeon 9800 and it sucks coz lots of noice and not so fast But NVIDIA has given the best ever card that i had needed for my Pc which is very fast(2Ghz ram,180Gb hard disk,3.02 ghz speed)If NVIDIA is an elephant in front of Ati then Ati is a ANT in front of Nvidia...
