ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT
ATI's first DirectX 10-compatible video card is finally on the market, and its reception has been lukewarm at best. Though this card can compete with Nvidia's GeForce 8800 GTS in performance, it does so for roughly $75 more. Plus, the noise output from the unit's fan is loud enough to be intrusive. While this isn't a bad card, we'd recommend avoiding this card until some refinements can be made given the strength of the rival Nvidia 8800 series.
