Yes very good card for the money you pay. If i had money I would buy one for myself. the 256 mb gives it good staying power, and as a radeon it has one of the best pixel shader chips out there.

btw, get the pro not the SE, pro has alot better fill rate and is worth the extra 40 bucks or whatever it is.

Yeah, I hate how the se stands for "second edition" but it is always worse than the first.

yes this is a very good card, I'd go with an XT myself, and Saphire prolly make the better quality.
not sure about putting it in an AGP4x slot, your board might be compatible with AGP8x, what is your board brand and model?
