1 out of 5 eggsKeep clicking...

Pros: They work just beyond tolerably when they work.

Cons: Low framerates in benchmarks (down to 22fps on Heaven 2.5 at full stats, no 3D, 1600x900 res) and best framerates of 60fps when there are very few things to render.

Cards in CrossFireX can't successfully duplicate my monitor from a 20" screen to a 42" screen except on low-power games (only TF2, to be direct).

Blue screens.

Game freezes to the effect of restarting my computer.

Cards don't accept driver updates.
---I install updates, it gets to the last item, and then I get a blue-screen. Updates install in safe mode, but I get a blue-screen upon reaching the logon screen.

Foul customer service.
---I've dealt with EVGA before (only cards I've bought in the past), and they, without question, send a replacement card so I can use something while they look at the original card. Sapphire/AlthonMicro absolutely refuses, suggesting I buy another temporary card, or simply don't use my computer.

DirectDraw and Direct3D completely fail, making games like Halo (original) unable to be played.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these and connected them via CrossFireX.

If you want quality, go for another brand. I'm never buying Sapphire again. The word is now a profanity in my house, and I hope the business crumbles from the electronics market.

5 out of 5 eggsAs Expected

Pros: N/A

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I did plenty of research before I bought this card, so I won't really bother reviewing the technical aspects. It's competitive pricewise for its range.

I've owned a few sapphire cards at this point. They have great customer support, a little pricier than others and they often don't clock as high, but worth it in my opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: -COOL
-Quiet
-Looks nice
-runs great in Crossfire
-Stable Drivers
-Overclocking potential

This card is wonderful. I bought it to use as a crossfire card because I did not have enough money for another HIS IceQ X 6950. This card also looked the best to match with it after looking at all the other ones available. It looks pretty good. The Light blue of the other card and the black of this one mix fairly well. At idle this card runs at 35-40C. While gaming gets to around 55C.

I wish the HIS card was like that. This HIS card sits at 60C idle with 50% fan. I have no idea why. The HIS card that I have now was an RMA, and the one before the one they sent me idled around 35C as well. I think this is just a bad chip. Good news is it doesn't go over 85C while gaming. Otherwise I might have to send it in for another RMA.

Shipping was fast and on time. The box arrived in perfect condition. I think I got 2 day shipping and it was here in a day and a half. That's why I love Newegg and UPS.

Cons: None that I can think of. We will see how long it lasts.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Graphics Card for the Price
Have thrown at it couple few things like test drive unlimited, sims 3, sky rim and it does the job.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I purchased this one replacing my current nvidia gtx 550 graphics card and I can say it does the job, although I read somewhere that there is a switch to unleash the rest of the power but haven't fount it maybe its software related who knows

2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: Very good quiet cooling
Made by Sapphire
Ran most games maxed out

Cons: The card has gone to hell.
My pc started to blue screen.
After reinstalling windows its still blue screened, but as of now i think i fixed the blue screening. The video card isn't working at all for acceleration. It works to use on the desktop or browse the web. Windows experience index rates it a 1.0 for graphics and gaming graphics because it won't work. All the drivers are installed correctly it is just the card that is messed up and I plan on to RMA the card.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Very fast
VGA AND HDMI (I have two monitors, one VGA one HDMI)
All around awesome (for the price)

Cons: It's discontinued.
I didn't get my coupon codes for Dirt3
Requires two PCI-E connections - Not that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: If it were still avaliable for purchase, I'd say hell yes. Buy one.
Too bad, though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Starter Card

Pros: This card works exactly as advertised and runs at good temperatures. The fans, heatsink, and copper pipes seem to be really well constructed. I have no problems playing any game I want, but only at high. I am able to run games on Ultra, but I choose not to. Dirt 3 and MuseMage for free made for a fun time after the build.

Cons: The card and fan shroud seem to be pulled away from each other a little bit, but no harm seems to be done by this.

Other Thoughts: I will possibly buy another one of these in January to run in SLI.
