5 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU!

Pros: Great! looks cool, one of these runs crysis very high 2xAA no fps problems, two at 8x AA and 1440x900(my monitors max res) age of conan all maxed out. cooled by vapor chamber(i dont know what it is but it sounds cool. and, it came with a crossfire bridge unlike most others.

Cons: took me forever to figure out that you dont need to hook it up to your PSU. little on the big side.

Other Thoughts: If i were you i would get 2 of these and run crossfire for future games, or buy one now get another later. and even though it says you need a 450W PSU, i am running on a dusty old 350w office computer PSU cause mine got fried and just ordered a new one!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 1gb of ddr4 memory, supports crossfire, card runs at about 39 degrees Celsius at normal operation which isn't bad. i like everything about this card, especially the price.

Cons: This is a big card, full size. Make sure that you have enough room for it. I have an Antec 900 case and the card almost reaches the hard drive bay.

Other Thoughts: Worth what you pay for 1gb of ddr4. I'd consider this graphics card to be a high mid-range card.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall size for it's generation

Pros: It's small...ish. It's by no means a low profile card, but comparing it to other cards out there in the sam catagorey and it's small. This is good for DELL and HP users that may have limited space, or don't want to take up to slots for the card.

Cons: With that said, it's also a con that's it's so small cause the vent goes into the computer, unlike the newer modern cards, so if you you have a bigger atx tower, this may not be needed.

Other Thoughts: Overall the card is smokeing, much faster than a typical HD 3870 as well, if you need a card for single slot use, or wanting to use crossfire (a feature that due to this smaller size is a nice treat) it'll handle it nicely.

Pros: Overclocks and benches well. I pulled off over a 21000 3D06 score with two of these Xfired as opposed to my buddy's 17000 with his new 4870. Cost me about 20 bucks more for two cards than his one.
Runs very cool. I got lucky this time. I have had to adjust the fan duty cycles on all but one of my HD3870 512s. I haven't had to do anything with these as far as that goes.

Cons: None at the moment.
I have nothing but praise for all of my HD3870s.
Out of 7, I've only had to RMA one of the 512s.

Other Thoughts: Might as well get two of these and run Xfire, if you have a Xfire capable rig. You can do as well if not better performance-wise than a single 4870 for roughly the same price. The 4870x2s don't work on anything yet so you'd be spending 550 bucks for a video card that will collect dust for who knows how long.
I'd recommend PC Power&Cooling or Corsair single rail PSU for running these.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing card

Pros: this thing is great!! game at 1680x1050 with it, amazing. it runs cod4 smoother than that 8800gt i had (could be fixed driver issue..who knows) and is just nice. does run a little warm, but very nice! overdrive set mine up to 875 core and 1220 on the ram...that is a heck of an oc for just ploppin it in and going to town!

Cons: little warm...heat exit out the back instead of in the case?

Other Thoughts: if you really want to get good perfomance, get two of these, and save money. wait for 4870 to come down in price...this thing is still like 80-90% just as good. half price too!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Drivers are easy to download. I have 2 of these xfired together, stress tests on the GPU's come back a little above "average" Games play great but waiting for a few newer ones (WarHammer Online) and others to really test this card.

Cons: Haven't found any yet, but haven't had too long.

Other Thoughts: Newegg shipped and delivered quickly
