I just bought the his version of the card last Sunday to replace my old x800pro..so far I've had little issues running either the 9.1 or now the 9.2 fglrx drivers, despite that I can't set the agp aperature to 512 to match the memory of the card ..highest my bios supports is 256. runs at 8x v-link enabled as well as fast writes... I'm running Mandriva 2009.0 64bit kde 4.2 and a 126.96.36.199 kernel on this motherboard
For what it's worth runs fine in Windows Xp 32 bit with the 9.1 hotfix drivers too.
I downloaded the driver from ati and used the --buildpkg option rpm's built and installed fine. I watch movies with the plf version of mplayer smplayer frontend and use the xv(0-ATI Radeon Avivo Video) setting..AIGLX and composite enabled but I don't use the 3-d desktop.. UT2K4 runs very well using the stat fps option I'm seeing about a 25+ boost in fps over my old card.. there is some slowdown in heavy action with multiple bots onscreen.. only real performance hit over my old card is trying to run EverQuest with wine pretty much a slideshow in the guild lobby.. perhaps it's a matter of tweaking wine somehow..
Anyways is your powersupply good enough ? Also what chipset is on your motherboard ?.. Seems most people reporting issues wind up running an Nforce2 motherboard.
