    A little expensive, but the people running older P4/Cel/Semp/XPs might find a use for it.

    I want one of these instead of my ancient 8400GS PCI. That HDMI output will be quite useful.

    True, but at the same time that's 1/3 of a 300 dollar PC, which will be faster than what they have.

    I had one of these from Saphire, the mobo and CPU died before the GPU did, it lasted through 3 machines, back when ATI made good cards.

    PCI cards like this are excellent


    how many times have you had to troubleshoot a PC, and wondered if it was the PCI-E slot that was bad, hmmmm?

    Thank HIS for this excelent Frankenstein, i do love it when manufactures create such cards for mission critical as said before and this is the only pci ati card that accelerates HD Video right?
    I only heard of the 8200 and 8400 GS as PCI before no ATI 3xxx HD where released as pci right?
    :D

    I have not heard of a 8200 card for PCI, but the following relatively modern cards exist for PCI:
    nVidia: 8400GS (I have one), 8500GT (I have one), 9400GT, 9500GT. The was a 8600GT by Albatron but good luck finding one of those.
    ATI: HD2400Pro, HD3450 and now HD5450.

    HOLY MONKEY SACS! It's blue? That won't match my red and black motherboard!!

    Just thought I'd join in with the hysterics this release is causing.

    depending on resolution, it perhaps could handle 2, but 3 I just don't see how due to the PCI bandwidth limitation.

    Good times, nice to see more pci cards. But i don't use the sh** anymore. I still want that rare 8600gt pci card, but hey you know i would buy this dx11 pci card if the price was say 25 bucks.

    i'm pretty sure this card has more than enough grunt for three windows desktops.
