  1. Hey guys.
    Thats the first ATI video card i bought and it will be my last.
    Ever since i got it, the video card was unstable. Kept crashing my games. The TV Tunel wouldnt work 1/2 the times. ATI's drivers didnt work properly, had to constantly re-roll it. All those problems were solved once and for all when it finally gave up and FRIED. gg ATI. Now im using my old Nvidia. :(

    I would have to guess that your experience was not in the norm. ATI has been around for a while and they wouldn't still be in business if all or even most of their customers had that experience. You got a bad apple - there are some in every bunch, even on the nVidia side. Don't get me wrong - I don't prefer nVidia over ATI or even vice versa - I just know, having worked with hardware for several years, that sometimes you get unlucky.
