ATI Radeon HD 3800
Released November, 2007
The Pros:Plays video smoothly, no screen jitter or lost frames. Overclocking is made easy, built in to the driver. Runs fairly cool, the heat generated is manageable with a reasonably aired out case.
The Cons:Not capable of the highest end graphics unless two are connected together in CrossfireX.
