What Ati do you run ?
here is another what do you run and why thread. I'll go first

ATI Raedon x1900xt 512MB

the why, my 7900GTX had to be rma'd and i was miffed about it so i got the raedon instead.

I had been running a Sapphire 1950pro until my water block cracked and leaked on it while I was away for the weekend......

I'm currently running a x600 as a loaner while I decide if I want to pick up another 1950pro, or wait to see what kind of offerings we get from the mid-range r600s.

x1950xt. best price/performance ratio. i had 250, it was the best i could get

X1900XTX and X1950CF Crossfire set-up. Pleased with that set-up for 2 months or so. Now, when R600s will get released ... ill buy 2 and make crossfire (if actually possible) I might as well need a new motherboard and power supply so ill buy them. :punk:

I'm running an ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB

I ran one of the early rageII AIWs and I'm convinced that the tv quality of that board was superior to the great majority of current lower-end tuner cards.

Can't beat an integrated solution as far as I'm concerned.

You are right. Mine is doing good for TV capture and it allows me to even play some demanding games like Prey . I should run 3DMark and see what scores I get with it.

True, the 9800 pro is an amazing card (i had one). i also have a REAL old ati card. you know the one with the mouse port on it :).

As for tv quality the AIW series does a pretty good job but i love my pvr-350 to pieces nothing like hardware mpeg2 compression :)

I used to own an ATI Radeon (1st generation) 32MB DDR.

What format is that? ISA slot, or was it new enough for a vesa slot?
