4 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: A good video card for the price. Works Flawlessly with Windows 7 64 bit out of the box. I run WOW on Ultra with 8x filtering and hardly ever go below 60fps even in the graphic intensive cities. Really crisp graphics on an HD monitor. The 3 different inputs are nice as well 2 of them being HD. In the near future I'll probably do a dual monitor setup off this nice card. ATI > NVIDIA

Cons: The fan is a little loud but that lets you know its putting out.

5 out of 5 eggsCard works well.

Pros: Card worked out of box with win764bit.
Appears to run games smoother than my Raedon 3870.
Haven't owned it long enough to discover any other problems or heat issues. Does what it was made to.

Cons: No apparent Cons.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Video Card

Pros: Good enough to play games with decent resolution and some anti-alis
Quiet (very quiet)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My old GPU was broken, so i need a cheap replacement before I build a new system in March. This graphic card is much more powerful than my old 8800GT, and best of all it's cheap.
One thing i didn't know is that the card is very quiet, comparing to the 8800GT the difference is like night and day

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card but dont overwork it

Pros: i have been a long time fan of sapphire because you get a quality card for a excellent price. My first one was a 3650 then a 3850 now this one. This one works great for shooters that require alot of detail for knowing where your enemies are at. Overclocked it and it ran great for about 6 months then it slowly went down in performance.

Cons: Went down in performance after about 6 months. I also noticed this with the other cards iv owned. Sapphire is a great company but they need to make their cards last alot longer. If I shell out $150+ for a card, it better work for no shorter than a year. I replace cards yearly since games come out frequently for pc and you constantly have to upgrade everything. If cards keep dying, I will have to go with nvidia. My bro only uses nvidia cards and his 4 year old model is still going strong... Mine however died after 6 months..

Other Thoughts: Didn't come with crossfire cables but I dont do crossifre but it's always nice to have them for when i upgrade my motherboard which will be in the next few months. Would it hurt you guys to throw a few in?

3 out of 5 eggsWorked well while it lasted...

Pros: Ran great and the ati automatic overclocking tool is awesome. Ran warhammer on full settings with zero lag except in extreme zerg situations and ran crysis on high settings (not highest) in 1600x1050 and 2x AA perfectly. Any higher settings than that and you'd notice it dragging it's feet.

Cons: The performance went down a bit with age. Maybe mine had some grime in there I couldn't reach but at any rate it began to overheat and I had to back off on the overclock after several months and eventually just flipped it back to stock settings. Even at that it failed on me while playing dark age of camelot. The computer froze and had nothing but a black screen on reboot with the "Critical Temp" light on the back of the video card illuminated.

Other Thoughts: I was really happy with the card for months but after it cooked at only 13 months old, I'm going to replace it even though it's still under warranty coverage. I guess the plus is that it has a 2 year warranty and saphire has been fairly cooperative so far about the RMA process but who's to say the next one they send me won't cook in another year after the warranty is up?

5 out of 5 eggsGame performance difference

Pros: Nice big fan, heatsink on memory chips too. Playing Brothers in Arms "Hell's Highway" resolution set to 1600x1200. Graphics is so much better, no video hesitation or lag. Drivers went in just fine, put the card in ASUS M4A78-E motherboard and Rosewill X-treme 850w PS.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Was having a video hesitation problem at 1600x1200 resolution with Radeon x1650 so had to scale resolution down to 800x600. Ubisoft said to upgrade video card, so I did and impressive 1600x1200 resolution. Game play is awesome.

5 out of 5 eggsOH, MY...

Pros: I never knew my graphics could look SO good. I had a 2 card SLI system before. This one card beats the 2 card system that I had hands down. NO comparison. I now play my games with the graphics on high.

Cons: I should have gotten this card sooner.

Other Thoughts: Graphics cards keep updating every so often. Either the slot changes or they upgrade the memory and the transfer rate. This card probably will soon be obsolescent. However can't be beat for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsHaving top-tier performance at mid-tier price

Pros: -The price of this card is comparable to that of a mid-range Nvidia, but with the performance level of some of the most expensive cards out there.

-Supports crossfire
-Easy to install and update drivers
-Stays cool

Cons: -N/A
-Oh wait, it lowers drastically in performance compared to other higher end cards when you juice your games up to x8 anti aliasing on while still on higher settings.

Other Thoughts: As long as you keep your anti aliasing lower you can get away with high settings on the latest games and probably even games to come for the next year.

-Used with AMD Phenom II X2 3.1 Black Editon, Biostar TA790GX, 4 Gigs of Patriot Viper 800Mhz RAM, and OCZ stealth 400w psu.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: I bought this card for 110 after 10% off and free shipping on Newegg a couple of months ago. So far it is getting as expected great performance. This really is a great value.
With 1gb of VrAM it is possible to play gta4 on high textures and still have room to scale up view distance. If you'd play this game u know what I mean.
AUDIO thru HDMI works great. It didnt work the first time, but the I restarted the CPU and worked flawless after.
NOTICE* the HDMI sound does work for games and all normal computer operation. I say this because I was initially under the impression it only worked for videos(movies).
Idle clocks are really low for decent power saving.
160mhz from 625mhz on core. 250mhz from 1000mhz on memory.
Play 1080p no problems

Cons: This card does get a little hot- 70C under LOAD with 100% fan. I also had little luck overclocking with a 670 core up from 625. It is just to hot to OC.

Other Thoughts: A dual core does keep this card bottlenecked. To really let it breathe pair it with a quad.
