notice for complaints about CRASHING
Just one point.
I bought a new 8500 DDR (3rd party card).
It worked well on every game I have (RTCW, half-life/cstrike, Tribes 2, Quake 3, etc.) except after a few minutes play in 3d it kept crashing!
I examined the card and found out that the cooling fan wasn't turning. I took the fan wire connection apart and re-did it (I couldn't be bothered with RMA) and its been 100% ever since.
I used to get 4501 on 3dmark2001se with my old Geforce 2 GTS. I now get 7300 with the Radeon.
WinXP Pro (NO VIA patch - doesn't do anything on XP) - all latest updates
Radeon Drivers 6052
512 mbytes (2x256 stick)
Gigabyte 7vtxe (kt266a)
LinkSys 10/100 PCI

That really sucks.....
Good thing you fixed it before using it awhile...
ATi Radeons don't run too hot, but better safe then sorry...
Don't want to burn out that puppy....
Enjoy your card....
