Does any body have any input on what kind of quality Power Color ATI video cards are? I've noticed they are making alot of 265m versions of the standered ATI cards and I'm curiouse about what kind of quality they are.
 
Check out this review by [H] of their card which they got factory UNDERCLOCKED! Check the Overclocking segment;

Don't trust PC, make sure you get what you paid for, even the you may not be happy.

I have a Power Color 9800pro 128mb...It didn't come underclocked but I used Rage 3D to set it at 416/360 and the card rocks over my Gigabyte 9700pro that went dead after a year. Max Payne 2, Call of Duty with all settings turned up looks incredible...game play is smooth as butter. That's my experience anyway...happy Power Color Owner. I'm running Catalyst 3.7 by the way without any problems.

got a power color and its running with no problem (exept that it came underclocked(just set it to normal speed)).
they got very good support. i burned the first card and they gave me a new one in 3 day.

My own beast: Athlon 2700xp+ , Radeon 9800pro (oc: 410/370) , 512mb ddr400. SO MUCH faster than my father pIII 550......

I'm on my second one.

I bought my first 9500 off of ebay... it died within a month.

Powercolor warrantied it, but charged me a $20 surcharge. Still, I really can't complain, since I didn't have a bill.

The replacement has been good so far. I hardmodded it to PRO. Not sure how long I've had it, 5 months now maybe?

I certainly don't think I'd buy a powercolor by choice next time. I'd rather get a sapphire.

But for the right price I'd probably consider it. They might not be all that reliable, but it's good to know they replace bad cards.
