COD4 on 1280x1024 looks like crap for this card, mine plays it just fine at that resolution.
Remember that 2x FSAA/8x AF is enabled and it's a 128-bit board; the OCed one isn't significantly afar from a HD 3850 at those settings in frame-rates, which is impressive considering the prodigious divide in raw hardware specifications between the two boards.

even @ 89 bucks its not bad, there are other concerns to consider also, someone might wish to upgrade there computer but not sure if the PSU can handle it, i had to do this in a new dell Core2 Quad 6600 but with an 8400GS, PSU was rated 300W max, he opted not to get the bigger PSU with it, so we stuck an 8600GT in it to be safe, this card works in that perfect

so if a 3850 is only a little more this would be useless

even if you dont need the power of the 3850 it would be stupid to get a lower end card round about the same price

its like buying a 2 litre of coca cola and then you notice the 2 stuck together that cost £2 which is 50p more than a single 2 litre

Look at the page itself. That's a Radeon HD 3850 512MB card, not an X1950 Pro board in AGP 8x. There's about a 22% spread between the OC'ed 9500 GT and the HD 3850 in COD4 at 1280x1024 w/2x FSAA & 8x AF.

And useless... I wouldn't deem the card so. At $70, it's not a deplorable deal. Not every gamer needs to play at 1920x1200 w/4x FSAA @ 40-60+FPS, as aforesaid...

The 9600 GT also is a tad slower than the 7900 GTX in Prey at those same settings.. on and off-handed note. A tad shocked there, but I guess that's moot given the results after.

Damn, I wish it was already 55nm, I would love to see the overclocking numbers then. Though it is nice to see this overclocks past 8600GTS speeds. I expected the price to be a little more reasonable though.
I'd say the increase of 10mhz is worth the 10 dollars. /sarcasm

It's not a bad card. Not good either, but it could be worse...

What if it was a rebadged *groans* FX SERIES. :O

I was comparing my card to that 9500, Mine is 3-4 Gens behind and it handles COD 4 SP/MP at 1280x1024, just fine.
