Quoted from PowerColor Radeon HD 2600 XT Reviews:Check out these quotes from PowerColor Radeon HD 2600 XT reviews & previews
"The only thing that stops me from saying 'forget about that card and grab an X1950 PRO / 7900 GT instead' is HD video playback which we did test across all three Radeon HD platforms. These mid-range / entry-level cards use almost no power yet they come with dual-link, HDMI with audio and UVD support. Think about that when building your home media PC. The other thing is the actual price which varies between $95-110 USD. If you are a casual gamer and love to watch HD content you should seriously consider PowerColor Radeon HD 2600 XT GDDR3. On the other hand if you're just looking for more framerates and DX10 support grab Radeon HD 2900 XT or GeForce 8800 GTX."
"Although we are a bit disappointed, the PowerColor Radeon HD 2600 XT comes at a very attractive price tag which will please a lot of potential buyers. It does offer good performance but not enough to really go up against the mid-range NVIDIA graphics cards. The main point we liked about the PowerColor version is the silent cooling solution, which does an excellent job. All well considered the features offered are excellent, and with full Windows Vista and DirectX 10 support you can't really go wrong with the Radeon HD 2600 series. So if you are on a lower budget then this could be the graphics card for you!"
"In the end, does the HD 2600 XT appear to be a good purchase? For the price range, it does. However, if you were hoping to be able to game with AA and AF enabled at reasonable levels, it becomes harder to recommend a HD 2600 XT over NVIDIA's competitive 8600 GT line. It'll be interesting to see what other models of the HD 2600 XT's can do -- especially the available HD 2600 XT's with the faster GDDR4 memory. Dual-GPU HD 2600 XT's have also been promised from Sapphire. But for now, while this Powercolor HD 2600 XT does offer fair performance for its price, it doesn't perform well enough to outshine its competitors."
