I have had abysmal performance from this card in the only game I play - BF2142, it's unplayable even at 1024x768. I also have had system instability, with beach ball lockups (but no kernal panics) which have occurred about every 2 days. Today I spent 45 minutes editing a multilayered photoshop file and it locked up. I lost everything. Now I'm an idiot for not saving during that time, admittedly, but I've had it with this supposed upgrade. Apple is giving me a return auth number as we speak. I'm bummed after all this time that this card was such a flop, but maybe ATI will do better.
