I've had 2 radeon cards and both went bad fairly quick. I am not a fan of radeon whatsoever. In fact, I'll never buy another radeon no matter how good the best x1900 is. Since I got a geforce I haven't had one compatibility probem, it's been as solid as it could be. In fact, I still have a 32 mb POS card that works, yet my radeon 9000 (which was awesome at the time) went out in 6 months.
