    I love my new Sapphire X1650 I bought from newegg for 70$. Any of the X1650 Versions count.

    Updating to the newest drivers (7.11) was a little tough, it messed up my colors and stuff, but nothing a little reinstalling and rebooting couldn't fix.

    The ATI Overdrive built into the Control Center was a little iffy, I went with ATITool 2.7 Beta 3 with Drive-Level Overclocking and it works great!
    It even has temperature reading and fan control.....
    I also changed my Latency for the card to 64, and it works! I get less studdering and smoother gameplay.

    (framerates not affected really)


    It came clocked at 500/800 and I got it running at 600/900.

    I pushed the Core and Mem to 649/918 max, I should be able to get more on my memory, but that's fine for now.


    On my system (which is unbelievable) it plays...

    Battlefield 2,
    F.E.A.R.,
    Counter-Strike: Source,
    Half-Life 2,
    Command & Conquer 3,
    Doom 3,
    Quake 4,
    Need For Speed (Up To Carbon),
    Fable,
    Trackmania United,
    Call Of Duty (Up To 2),
    Halo
    Unreal Tournament 2004

    Far Cry


    On MAX Settings, some even with 2X AA Enabled. (And Anisotropic Filtering) (1024x768)




    Games I was able to run....(Not always good framerates, but completely playable....)

    Call Of Duty 4 Demo (All Features Enabled, Max Textures/Anisotropic Filtering Max, Model/Water On Normal)(1024x768)

    Crysis Demo (All Medium Settings, Frames drop when lots of physics stuff is happening (falling hut and stuff))






    I will put more when I play them...:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    That card It's the Ati's response to the 7600 series of Nvidia, both delivers excellent performance....you can push a litle more the core and mems. I had a Gigabyte X1650 passive cooled (bad to OC purposes) and I reach 610 core / 1000 mems and It was fully stable. Your card comes air cooled so posibily you can reach even more.

    That's true, also no Gears of War....maybe if you low the res to 800X600 some games will manage tu run at playable speeds.

    ya i got it b4 the 1900's came out remember when they came out they changed the name of the whole line? they like took the 1600's made them 1550's and then clocked them down or something....at anyrate i had the first gen b4 the name change...but ya i loved it...that card was amazing my first intro to SM3.0...and when i first booted oblivion coming from a 9800pro it was like omg what was i missing rocks were shiny and stuff and the sun omg the sun looked so sexy..ya have to say i loved it....the cooler was good too b4 both nvidia and ati decided to put coolers on cards that could over powerthem.
