5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Amazing cost ratio for the performance. Runs everything on high settings and can max crysis 2.

SUPER QUIET, which is amazing! even when over clocked this puppy runs queit. great card!

Cons: you do need a beastly psu to over clock this thing in crossfire

5 out of 5 eggs6870

Pros: I purchased this card from a local brick and mortar store because they had a lower price point than the Egg did, the card is amazingly fast, however it isn't very overclockable. I used IC 7 diamond on the GPU core and it stabilized the temps but the fastest I could get was 930 on the core and leaving the Memory at 1050. Great graphics, I'm running the newest driver set, Catalyst 11.6 and the performance is stunning. I upgraded the PSU from Newegg with the Kingwin Lazer 1000 and everything is teets up.

Cons: This card, for the money ROCKS, its performance is on par with the 5850, however it runs much quieter due to the die shrink. Price for performance it is an outstanding value. In every game I've played, the performance gain between my last card, the 4870 and this card is phenomenal. I have not had any buggy driver issues, but thats probably because I didn't "cheap" out on any of my components. There is absolutely NO negatives about this video card, it's stable, powerful and QUIET. Long live the UNDERDOG AMD!!!!!

Other Thoughts: To the reviewers that shouldn't be allowed to even handle components, you can't buy a card like this and keep your same old obsolete components, if you don't have the power to run the card, you're not going to get the performance. also, if you just want to run down AMD/ATI because you're an NVIDIA phanpunk, keep your comments to yourself. You probably didn't even purchase the device. My current system: Heka 740 tri core @ 4 cores, 3.57 gz, 8 gigs Trident 1600mz@1680, Kingwin 1000 watt PSU, Thermaltake Armor Case, Diamond 6870 Video Card, twin WD Black 1Tb drives, Seagate 1Tb storage, Asrock 890Fx Deluxe 5. Processor is cooled by CM N520 HSF with two 92MM fans in push/pull orientation. Next edition will be the FX8600 Zambezi core at 3.6gz. Monitor is a 37" Vizio HD 1920x1080 monitor which is an awesome solution for gaming or just browzing.

2 out of 5 eggsOkay card

Pros: The card does deliver some great video for ATI/AMD optimized software. I came from an old P4 with a GeForce 6800. It was part of a build for a rocking AMD system.
This card looks amazing with some games. It is horrible with Flight Simulator X. The card has great opportunity for over-clocking, but it will crash often if it ever gets unstable.
I will try this card again when I get a new Intel Processor.

Cons: The ATI drivers are horrible and cause a lot of problems from one version to another. I was so upset with the cards overall performance that I purchased an Nvidia GTX560ti. The GTX560ti put this cards to shame in everything I used it with.
It appears that games hide display settings from ATI cards, as the games designed for ATI cards even look better on the Nvidia card. But that was because I had a tone more options to tweak the game to look better.
Dual display performance sucks. That is putting it bluntly. I run 2-3 monitors, and this card would crash every time I would have a game playing on one monitor and a video running on the other. I like to let my kid watch cartoons on one screen while I game on the other but this card couldn't even handle that. Anywhere from 1 minute to 5 minutes in to the dual monitor video usage and the computer was restarting itself. The benchmarks made this card seem like a winner, but I found it to be an aggravating loser.

Other Thoughts: This is a good card for a single monitor, non-gaming user that doesn't expect much from their video card.
I was saddened to find this card could only outperform an outdated card in only a few instances. Or to put it this way, I was sad to spend close to $300 to find a modern card couldn't give me better performance with dual monitors and video playback while gaming. I did better with the old 6800 overall. I am loving the GTX560ti though.

1 out of 5 eggswrong card

Pros: it is an outstanding video card.

Cons: i ordered it and i got one with a red plastic covering. it seemed kind of fishy even though the box and all of the stickers said 6870. i did further research and discovered it was the 6850. a complete disappointment considering i just spend over 100 dollars on a waterblock that i know will not fit because it is the 6850 board design.

5 out of 5 eggsNot like the pic

Pros: Thing is awesome

Cons: Well I bought one bout 3 months ago and it looked exactly like the pic, well built, but I bought another one the other day and they sent me a card made out of flimsy material, not as well built as the one in the image above. so I did a RMA to get my 250 bucks back. I'm looking for a matching one and I doubt they can do that for me.

Other Thoughts: If yall can get me a matching card, I will be happy to buy one again.

5 out of 5 eggs3 Monitors

Pros: Took me a while to figure out 3 monitor eye finity but was worth it. Works great.
Buy a Sapphire active display port adapter from Newegg, and then obtain an adapter cable to connect the video card to the active adapter.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Very cool operation, quiet too. Worked out of the box.
