5 out of 5 eggsGood mid level card!

Pros: Quiet, fast and reliable. Settings on high to ultra high with good fps results. GDDR5! Card is not huge like some I have seen.

Cons: none noted yet

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my son's new gaming rig--It gets the job done without costing a lot.

5 out of 5 eggsFOR DELL OPTIPLEX 960 OWNERS

Pros: i own a Dell Optiplex 960 small desktop form factor.. it comes with a 305 watt power supply.. i was using a ATI 4670.. due to not needing a 6 pin supplement PCI-E connector.. and the 4670 is a nice card.. but i wanted to upgrade.. to the 4770.. it requires a 6 pin PCI-E connector though.. there is hope folks.. since the Dell power supply is basically proprietary due to the BTX layout of the motherboard.. you are pretty much stuck with there power supplies.. a XPS 420/425 watt power supply will fit and work! i'm using it now.. with no issues.. the part number is C921D.. cost was $60.00 but well worth it.. it has 2 PCI-E connectors.. and all the other power connectors fit with no issues.. so if you want this card to run fine on your 960 get the power supply.. you will be golden..

Cons: none..

Other Thoughts: fired right up.. running on 23" Acer 1080p LCD no issues running TF2.. Aion.. very quiet.. cant even hear it.. will fit in a Dell Optiplex 960.. even though it is pretty big.. evcellent deal..

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: Solid design that build up little heat

Cons: Phat heatsink that I'm sure cuts down on heat and noise in any basic case, but bulky inside a SX48P2 E case

Other Thoughts: I wanted the better heat signature of a 4770, eventhough it comes at a relative price premium, it just doesn't work that well in a Shuttle design, due to the inverted way you place the graphic cards inside the case (that is with fan housing pointing into the case, rather that outwards). And with no dual slot exhaust most of the heat gets trapped inside anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent budget card

Pros: Easy setup
Excellent fps in every game I've thrown at it so far
Cheap (Price-wise)
Low power consumption

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Have yet to try higher res. Sure it'd blow through those as well.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Graphics Card Money Can Buy

Pros: I just installed this card and WOW! I can run World of Warcraft under 64-bit Windows Vista at 1920x1200 in Ultra Mode and it's still playable! My ATI Radeon 4650 sure couldn't do this. For those complaining about the 128-bit bus to memory, it's very, very expensive to put a wider memory bus on a 40nm or smaller GPU. This would make this graphics card cost far more than Nvidia's highest performing GPU.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat price/performance ratio

Pros: -very low power consumption
-good performance (should be sufficient for almost any casual gamer)
-good upgradeability(stellar overclock on the 40nm chip and newest crossfire architecture-it is new-)
-support for latest directX(10.1)
-great windows 7 performance with directX 10.1

Cons: -hard to find due to supply chain issues
-OS support and drivers can be a bit picky but ATI/AMD is making it better day by day (no ubuntu compatability but will run as generic GPU)
-relatively poor memory bandwidth for GDDR5 due to 128-bit bus this results in uncharacteristicaly diminished performance when you turn on AntiAliasing at higher resolutions(I believe this was done by ATI to protect theyre priceier cards, but its nothing an overclock cant cure)

Other Thoughts: on the supply note most of the 4770s out are still the release cards which means theyre all the same... exactly so you should feel safer in buying from a lesser known manufacturer or atleast one that you dont usually buy from.

These cards are a very good price point when crossfired as they will be equivalent to a 4890 (and beat it out at max resolution) a pair of these also keeps pace with an Nvidia gtx280.

I would like to reiterate that the drivers for this baby get better all the time for those of you who buy this card and have video related chrashes. In the amount of time I have had this card(2 months or so) there have been no less than 3 catalyst updates improving its performance and compatability and I am useing windows 7 RC (build 7100) and XP

note: these cards have caused a price drop to occure in many video cards around $100-$200 so it may be very possible to find cards that do better than this one for just a little more, but do not buy a 4850 they are = in performance

2 out of 5 eggsNot so good

Pros: low price!, small, energy efficient.

Cons: it cannot handle heavy games. it barely opened oblivion on medium settings.

Other Thoughts: i would use this card for 2d games and programs like AutoCad. Im returning the product and getting an Nvidia card

5 out of 5 eggsSize doesn't matter . . .

Pros: 'cause this one's got it where it counts! So far so good in the Win7 RC, no driver issues. I'm using the driver only latest version from ATI. Works flawlessly with Burnout Paradise. Haven't tested much else.

Cons: Could be cheaper considering performance relative to 4850.

Other Thoughts: In a uATX case (Antec P180) this one's gold . . . you can still retain function of the lower drive bays and since it's on the 40nm process, shouldn't need to worry about temps.

3 out of 5 eggsRadeon HD 4770 is Decent

Pros: I bought this baby about a month into it's release. It's a great product for the price, especially in crossfire (from what I've read)

Cons: I bought it, my motherboard never recognized it until I installed the latest CCC 9.6 or 9.7 driver. So I was stuck with it for no reason for a good week until CCC9 .6 was finally released.

Other Thoughts: This thing burned out on me within the same month of buying it. Don't know if I should trust Sapphire anymore. I've had this burned out card in the box and ready for return. I just hope it's not too late...
