The X1300 makes a great upgrade if you're looking for more muscle for multimedia and graphics applications. View larger.
Under the hood you'll find 105 million transistors on a 90nm fabrication process; four pixel shader processors; two vertex shader processors; 256 MB of 128-bit, 4-channel GDDR3 memory; and a native PCI Express x16 bus interface.
The Radeon X1300 also supports impressive shader performance with Shader Model 3.0--now you can see incredible details never before visible. The X1300 also allows you to experience simultaneous high dynamic range rendering and advanced adaptive anti-aliasing for incredible enhancements to lighting contour and color details. Take the edge off of jagged wires and strands of hair, while experiencing photorealistic lighting.
Home Theater Compatibility
ATI's Avivo technology, which is integrated into the X1300, promises a high-definition visual experience, delivering sharper photos, smoother video, true-to-life image representation, and universal display connectivity for driving HD displays. High-definition images come to life with remarkable clarity and color. Plus, Avivo's universal connectivity allows you to create your ideal display setup. The technology also offers accelerated MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, WMV9, VC-1, and H.264 decoding, encoding, and transcoding. In the display support department you get an integrated dual-link DVI connector, plus compliance with HDMI and HDCP connections. There's even a component output for direct connections to HDTV displays.
Lose the jaggies! Hardware anti-aliasing makes your games more realistic.
With the purchase of a X1300 CrossFire Edition card, your X1300 can be upgraded to take advantage of ATI's CrossFire technology, giving you twice the power to throw at the most demanding games. Based on the same technology used with ATI-based commercial flight simulators, CrossFire soars into a new dimension of graphics capability with multiple graphics processing units (GPUs) working together in your PC. With two X1300 cards installed in your PCI Express-based PC, you can choose from three operating modes. First, Alternate Frame Rendering mode balances GPU tasks between the two cards for optimum performance. There's also a multiple load-sharing Scissor mode for compatibility with all games, as well as a Supertiling mode that divides the screen into multiple sectors that are selectively targeted by the two GPUs, offering the best load balancing between them. Note that to take advantage of CrossFire your computer must have a motherboard that is CrossFire-ready. The Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire Edition and Intel i955X based dual-slot motherboards are supported platforms.

Top Customer Reviews
Do your research before you buy any video card, but if you're planning to play a game with your card, research that game's forums - fansites or official - to get the real scoop on drivers and compatibility. Don't rely on an Amazon review that has nothing to do with the card or software and everything to do with Microsoft's less than stellar implementation of the Vista OS.

I used it to upgrade a 10 year old E-MAchines computer for a customer that had no dedicated graphics.
It will do the job but dont expect much.
