3 out of 5 eggsNot the same

Pros: Good video for work with DUAL monitor setup

Cons: This card does not have dual DVI ports any more. It has one DVI/HDMI/DP and will not run more than two monitors. I bought this card to run two monitors and to duplicate the second monitor to a projector, it will not do it.

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable + Capable X 2

Pros: Same as previous review.

Cons: Out of stock on NewEgg. Ordered second device from alternate major retail website.

Other Thoughts: At last I was able to manage rigging two of these GPUs in crossfire. Installation was smooth and the device itself and the crossfire bridge I purchased from an alternate electronics outlet both fired up immediately. Catalyst Control Center and Windows 7 recognized the configuration right away. I had no wattage shortfall with a Kingwin Lazer 850W modular PSU. World of Warcraft's recommended settings jumped to 'high' in xfire vs. 'good' with only a single card. I adjusted anisotropic filtering and multisampling values higher than the recommended settings. No framerate jump with vertical sync enabled but texturing and resolution are noticeably sharper. Edges are cleaner and visual details are substantially more crisp. I was expecting a higher FPS but for the price I can't justify being disappointed. I think I've managed a somewhat enviable level of graphics performance for a reasonable cost.
Oddly the WEI throttled down a notch to 7.5 in xfire vs. 7.6 with only a single GPU.

Pros: First of this video card is AMAZING It runs every game I've played so far in ultra setting. It has a great framerate. Also on the windows 7 Expeirence scale with out enhancing anything Gaminng graphics and Desktop Aero effect were ranked at 7.6. If you had money to buy this card I would buy it!

Cons: None the card is great.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat card, but weird issues (could be me)

Pros: This card is handling everything I throw at it quite nicely when working properly. I'm having virtually no framerate issues and, jumping from an Inspiron 1525's terrible card to this boggles my mind. I am able to run just about everything at max or near max settings. The Dirt 3 coupon was redeemed through Steam within 5 minutes, and it really showcases this card's abilities very well (everything is at max, and my lowest framerate has been around 47 fps).

Cons: It could be me and something I did, but I am having some strange issues with this card. Non-flash intricate elements on screen cause noise and random minor pixel scrambling, which doesn't seem to go away over time (on Firefox, at least). I also experience artifacting and the same noise issues on menus and textures when first booting up certain games (such as Bioshock, Borderlands, Sonic Generations, Minecraft, or Sins of a Solar Empire, to name a few), but it goes away within a few minutes and once I go through a second loading zone. It doesn't appear on others (such as Dirt 3, Painkiller, Crazy Taxi, or CoD4). I'm considering an RMA but would like to inquire more into the issue before doing that. Drivers are up to date, and the issue has not changed. The few people I've talked to are also unsure of the cause of the problem.

Other Thoughts: The graphics issues are not intrusive while gaming, especially since they go away after a few minutes when a game has been running, Firefox notwithstanding. Overall performance of this card is fantastic, and this is a great card for the price, but I seem to be an odd one out with these issues. An RMA may fix this, but I don't know enough about graphics hardware to really make an opinion yet. I would appreciate help on this issue.

5 out of 5 eggsAddendum to Affordable + Capable

Pros: Same as previous review.

Cons: Same as previous review.

Other Thoughts: I felt compelled to offer a follow-up review after adusting World of Warcraft's graphics settings. Many DIYers, particularly gamers, likely already know this but this card is capable of far higher fps than 60 with vsync disabled. I decided to experiment some and disable the vsync function. All else the same, (1920x1080, settings on 'High'), this card delivered in the range of 75-95 fps during open-world exploration and achieved upwards of 200 fps in enclosed regions, occasionally spiking at around 240. There was no screen tearing or lag. The card did not appear to overheat at any time during a 4-5 hour session.
I suppose base specifications only tell us so much. How a device manages a specific game's settings is hard to ascertain until we plug it in and fire it up. I'll admit I don't fully understand what vsync does, but it doesn't seem necessary with this rig and a Hewlett-Packard HP 2311x monitor. I'm even more satisfied with this purchase now.

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable + Capable

Pros: Size - not a monster; should fit in a good number of mid-tower cases. Quiet. Stays cool. Attractively priced. Specifcations seem to meet or exceed those of more expensive devices.

Cons: None that come to mind.

Other Thoughts: This was my first mid-range, dual-slot graphics card. I am more than satisfied with the performance and technical behavior of this GPU, particularly at this price. Installation was simple and driver loading from the CD was nearly effortless. It stays cool and runs quietly. Delivers solid 60 fps playing WoW on 'High' @ 1920x1080. Will achieve 60 fps on 'Ultra' most of the time, also @ 1920x1080 but will demonstrate some lag, albeit briefly. Then again I'm not participating in 10 or 25 man raids, so the graphics load isn't super-demanding. Occasionally the WoW launcher will abort and Windows 7 will display a 'AMD Display Driver Stopped Working And Has Recovered' message, but re-launching the game seems to overcome it - an intermittent and very minor frustration. Once in the game, though, performance is reliable and smooth as glass.
