When I first went to install this...
Strengths: Good speed for the price graphics as good as some 128mb cards
Weakness: haven't found any yet
When I first went to install this card, it wouldn't load the memory. It took a bit of expert advice to figure out the problem. The reason some have a problem installing this card is due to the monitor/TV monitor dual hookups, you have to hook both up in back and then turn off the TV part after it installs. Once this is done it's a great card to have. my system is a Pentium 3 Win me

Strengths: The videocard is awesome for the money. Renders graphics perfectly at high resoultions. Hydravision is unique and useful.
Weakness: Known error loading HALF of the 64mb vram. Multimedia programs are annoying, much rather use Windows Media.
I was very excited when I got my video card, as I was coming off an ATI Rage Pro FOUR mb vram... The primary game I used to judge the abilities of the videocard was Grand Theft Auto 3. The game ran every well, that is, IF and ONLY IF the card loaded at 64 mb. If it loaded at 32 (almost all the time) the game would get very jerky, and after a while would competely decompose into a rotting pile of...

I was very excited when I got my video card, as I was coming off an ATI Rage Pro FOUR mb vram... The primary game I used to judge the abilities of the videocard was Grand Theft Auto 3. The game ran every well, that is, IF and ONLY IF the card loaded at 64 mb. If it loaded at 32 (almost all the time) the game would get very jerky, and after a while would competely decompose into a rotting pile of cheese, probably pulling a WHOPPING 5 fps. VERY VERY ANNOYING. Ways to get the card to load right were going into the bios and just selecting a different AGP aperture size, or uninstalling the drivers, and then installing them. The card would be great, if it didn't pull that crap. This is a known problem for the card, as well as the Radeon 8500 cards, Ati has it published on their website, but has no solution. Avoid this product, its not worth the time for the money saved, get different model, or a nVidia. This card is MEGA CRAP

Strengths: Very easy to install and setup. Speed seems good, although not as fast as Ti4200. DirectX compatibility is no problem.
Weakness: I had a problem running Icewind Dale 2 with this. I've tried adding RAM thinking that was the problem, but did not fix problem. I also get some slow-downs running Warcraft 3.
Overall this is a very decent video card if you are not happy with the inflated prices of GeForce products. I would have rated this higher if the 9700 had not come out. Now that the 9700 is out, I think I'd rather save my money and get that.

Strengths: Faster than most video cards of its size
The ATI Radeon 9000 Pro AGP 64MB, is a great video card. It runs games smoothing, and comes with a control panel that has a media player with it and some other nice features. Two thumbs up.

Strengths: Real easy to install and use.
Weakness: On some games the frame rate drops a bit. Overall not too bad considering the price.
I purchased this card to play some 3D games. So far besides the frame rate dropping on some games, It's not too bad. I would purchase another ATI vid card.
