2 out of 5 eggsExtremely unstable powerhouse

Pros: Very, very powerful. Ran nearly everything with relative ease, even GTA IV on mid/high settings (I lack a quad core processor).

Cons: Completely unstable. I heard things about a certain line of these being 100% faulty, but mine worked somewhat. Nearly 90% of the time when playing a game it would spontaneously crash the entire computer, forcing me to reboot. Some games would dump be back to the desktop, some games only crashed when I idled in them.
Overall however the 'glaciator fansink' is a piece of rubbish, drawing WAY too much power from the PSU and not even keeping the card below an idle temp of 70c.

Other Thoughts: Worth a shot if you're feeling lucky, people have had these work perfectly for them but I'm one of the ones that didn't.
Put a friend's 9800GT in there and haven't had a problem since, so I know its not an issue with my other hardware.

ATI software suite is really extensive and good to use, better so than Nvidias, but I'd rather have a card that works...

3 out of 5 eggsRuns Hot and above average fan noise

Pros: Cost is the big plus. CrossFire support. I have 2 units in CrossFire and am vary happy with performance. Come with PCI-E power plug adapter.

Cons: The cards runs vary hot and seems to have comparatively insufficient cooling when put next to other 4850 models. Some versions ship with earlier BIOS revisions that do not support CrossFire well and also has the GPU to high for its heat-sink and fan which results in instability.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat overclocker, runs cool

Pros: runs cool, i don't know why people say the claciator is bad (asus heatsink for the card.)
i overclocked to 715, but can go much farther.
memory overclocked to 1099, 2198 effective.
stays at 48 room temp ( live in california, so my room temp is like 30-35)
at full load the fan runs at 36% speed, because the temp never goes above 60, hovers in the mid 50's( 54-56 )(overclocked)
barely touches the 50's not overclocked.
not too big, but still a dual slot.
new egg was great.
comes with all adapters( dvi-vga,s-video to RGB, dvi to hdmi, molex to 6 pin pci,)
runs crysis warhead on enthusaist if overclocked to 730(20-30)fps,
it it can go beyound a stock 4870, but not close to an overclocked one. runs cod waw on highest settings on crazy resolutions, at above 60 fps ( CRAZY )

Cons: reqires a bit more power, the most in its processing power to power consumption.
dual slot(not really a con, just a fact)

Other Thoughts: i would of went for the 4870, but im getting a phenom II quad 3.0 and some gaming ddr 3, and a new mother board, so im not woried about video, these cards change price, and preformance rapidly, i bet when ati comes out with their next generation these will be like 70$ and the 4870 will be a 90-100, and the 4890 will go for like 120, so im not going to be happy with a 4890 that will lose its price in 3 months( could of waited syndrome)

5 out of 5 eggsVery good buy

Pros: VERY fast video card. I can run WoW at highest settings at 1680x1050 @ 50-60fps (ok, there's some lag in extremely high pop areas, but that's mostly my internet). Battlefield 2, and Battlefield 2142 @ max quality settings, at same resolution, runs perfectly! Doesn't run too terribly hot. It comes with a massive heat sink on it to get rid of heat.

Cons: The card is HUGE! Look at the video card's picture here, and compare the PCI-E slot in the pic to a pic of a slot on a motherboard. This is a monster! I had to move my hard drives around in the bays to make room to install it. Still, it ran too hot with limited cooling of my case. I had to order a new full tower case with 7 120mm fans in it to get rid of the heat from my OC'd Q6600, this video card, and 4 HDDs. (granted, the OC'd and the HDDs are my fault, not the video cards.)

Other Thoughts: I don't know what everyone is complaining about heat for. This card runs at about 48 C idle, and I've NEVER seen it go higher than about 65 C (according to CPUID hardware monitor), not even after hours of gaming. And my card is overclocked to 725 MHz core, 1044 MHz memory, and it's STILL not getting too hot. I've had it up to full 800 MHz core (highest CCC would let me), and 1100 MHz memory, and it passed video card stability test for 4 hours, max temp seen was 68 C. (I didn't want to wear it out too quickly, so I moved the clock speeds down after that test to stated above).

5 out of 5 eggsDreams Can Come True

Pros: I know we all feel that graphics cards have to be expensive to be good, but shopping online is so much cheaper and you get better stuff than what they sell in stores. I have been running this system now for a week and it has been flawless. Rainbow six vegas. vegas 2, cod4, L4D, Cod5, and crysis all run from roughly 90-100 FPS. Technology is rendered "obsolete" in months, but the fact is, game companies know all of their customers can't afford to buy a new card monthly, this card will probably last me for 3 to 4 years, if i actually wanted it to, and would still play games above 40 FPS probably. enjoy this card.

Cons: Nothing bad about this one, but i get excited whenever Ii'm upgrading and don't read thoroughly at all times, and I almost bought an open box card, NEVER DO THIS!!! they're usually broken cause the previous owner was not smart and didn't ground himself before handling the card.

1 out of 5 eggsCard works fine, but Asus rebate check bounced!

Pros: The card works well on my e6420/Vista system (mostly BF2), so it's a good value, especially for less than $100.

Cons: ASUS rebate check was returned ("account closed") almost 4 months(!) after I deposited it, so $30 was sucked out of my checking account. Talk about slimy things to do! If ASUS can't even supply the money for their rebate checks, are you going to trust their video cards?

Other Thoughts: ASUS failure to pay their rebate is really disappointing, as I had considered them in the top tier of design and quality of MBs and graphics cards. Time to find somebody else to spend my money with...

4 out of 5 eggsreasonable price for crossfire upgrade

Pros: I got this to upgrade my existing HD 4850 to a crossfireX solution. I also tested the card individually and it works as advertised - nothing special but still a solid card at stock speeds.

Cons: The fan on this thing is LOUD and, even worse, it is a high pitch noise so it sounds like a vacuum cleaner (even at 50% speed). I'm wearing headphones until UPS delivers my AC s1 rev2. Yikes.

Also, there are no heatsinks on the VRMs. The added cost of a new cooler and heatsinks somewhat diminishes the value for your dollar.

Other Thoughts: I'm waiting until DirectX 11 cards come out. Until then, adding this to my previous card is a pleasant and cost-effective upgrade.

3 out of 5 eggsTail of Woe

Pros: Price, Worked for most games.

Cons: Issue with world of warcraft, the whole reason I was building the computer for a family member. It gave a #134 error in WOW (can not load various files). Which in the end turned out that this card over reports memory, the issue is on asus forums there is no fix yet. I put this card in my machine and it gave same errors and when I put my 4850 (different brand) back in now it had the same game errors even after reinstall of game and drivers. Only a reformat, fixed issues. So caution if a WOW fan, wait until fixed.

Other Thoughts: Worked fine for L4D, HL2, and other games
