5 out of 5 eggsGreat card, still fast

Pros: Smooth graphics, still holds its own after almost 3 years. Black Nickel-plated Copper heat sink is a big burrito of EPIC EPICNESS, surrounded a tortilla of EPICNICITY!

Cons: Heat sink fan failed after 2 years (not even worth docking an EGG)
Heat sink fins are just the right size to trap lint sized dust such as carpet fibers.
Thermal grease dried out (hard as a rock).

Other Thoughts: Good graphics card.

Replaced fan with a 40mm wired to the on-board connector after the existing fan bearing started making noise.

Had a recent game lockup with artifacting. Noticed video card running hot in Catalyst control panel. Replaced heat sink thermal grease with that "Somewhere NORTH of Canada Ag 4.99+.001" stuff... Now running approx. 40C idle ~ 63C full load.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CARD

Pros: Runs every game 1920x1200 everything maxed! I get above 60fps on every game except Crysis and Warhead I get average of 30 fps !

Cons: loud fan! gets hot, I replaced the heat sync! now the card never gets above 60 deg cent underload!
CROSSFIRE WILL MAKE YOUR PC AN OVEN! 2 of these get very hot!

Other Thoughts: Crossfire is a total waste of time when you get into highend cards! I bought 3 of these for 2 pc,s ! After testing crossfire I got less then an 10% increase in FPS! total waste of money! So I,m gonna use the third in a SPEC machine to sell! NEVER BELIEVE SPEC,S read reviews on preformance! WHO CARES IF YOU GET 40000 point,s! that tells nothin! Lets hear about how the card preform,s

5 out of 5 eggsJust got my 2nd one for XFire

Pros: Added this in Crossfire with same ASUS HD4870 and they run very good in thier stock OC'd setting over 14.000 in 3DMarkVantage points and 20,000 in 3DMark06 points running cool and Quiet.I was worried about heat but Case is ventilated Great. Inexpensive if I get my Mail in Rebate. Newegg is the Best

Cons: Surprised by the bad reviews. No problems with these Cards. And I'm still upset with ASUS about refusing to send me a 2-way SLI Bridge for SLI motherboard I purchased. ASUS Customer Care doesn't care much but couldn't pass up Newegg Price with Mail in Rebate.

Other Thoughts: Phenom II 940BE Overclocked to 3.6GHz, Foxconn A79A-S motherboard, 2 ASUS EAH4870 DK in Crossfire,4GB G.Skill Memory 1066MHz, I still need a 2-way SLI Bridge for ASUS board and a longer XFire Bridge for this board to use the better PCIE2.0 x16 slots.

2 out of 5 eggsATI failed me once again...

Pros: When it runs, it runs awesome! Can run most everything on max settings, 1900x1250. Works 75% of the time.

Cons: Randomly dies. I'll be playing a game, screen goes black and 3 little red lights appear ontop of the video card. It has done this off and on since I got it. Two times last night. Once not touching the computer and listening to music for 1.5 hours and again while playing Empire Total War (thank goodness for autosave), which sparked me writing this review to warn you guys to not get it.

Other Thoughts: Buy NVIDIA. I've had bad luck with EVERY ATI card I buy. Something is always wrong with the card itself, or a game doesn't work right. Some graphical clitch or crash that NVDIA's don't have.

No I am not a fanboy, which is why I keep trying ATI (it's like my 4th ATI card), I keep giving them a chance but I'm all out of chances. I'll NEVER buy ATI ever again. I'm done.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for a couple months

Pros: To be perfectly honest, this video card was pretty good considering the price it was for, however its reliability is another thing.

Cons: After about 4 months of ownership, I started to notice that the video card would constantly cause a no signal in a middle of game play. When I looked at the card, I notice that two red lights would turn on. I looked around several forums and realized that this was a very common problem and most people would have to contact the manufacturer to get a replacement. If you want to save yourself the trouble of having to constantly restart your computer or returning the defective item, I would suggest just going with a Nvidia

Other Thoughts: Should of went with my gut instinct and went with Nvidia

1 out of 5 eggsArtifacts 3 months in

Pros: The card worked great for a couple of months.

Cons: "Just a few days ago the card started having problems and artifacts (in the form of red and green pixels) would randomly popup on images and graphics. It was limited to images for the first few days then spread to the entire GUI. The problem only got worse and eventually the whole screen was covered with these artifacts." The same thing happened to my card. switched back to my old 8800 gts and everything is fine.

Other Thoughts: Have yet to contact asus about a replacement hopefully that will rectify the situation. The card was great while it lasted, hopefully the next one will be longer than 3 months.

5 out of 5 eggsDude... Awesome.

Pros: No, it is not the biggest baddest kid on the block. But when it comes to bang for your buck, this puppy is top dog.

Runs at a steady 51 degrees C, and has never gone above 75 degrees C. Free tool from Asus to monitor the temperature comes on the CD.

Very slick packaging! Heatpipes are big and scary and killer.

My roomate has one of those fancy nVidia-chipset GTX280 cards that he paid about $150 more for, and we run our games with the same settings. Win.

Cons: It came with Alone in the Dark. That game was not worth installing. Can haz COD4?

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good cooler, quiet at idle, amazing price, 4870 and therefore a pretty fast and capable board overall.

Cons: Cooler. I'm not sure if this is a common thing, but the MemIO temps (Which are on the GPU) were very high. So high they caused crashing. A simple reapply of thermal paste fixed this, so it may have just been my board, but it was a problem at first. Cooler also reaches its limits pretty quickly, if you overclock much more, you'll have temperature problems. Also, keep in mind that the voltage cannot be increased on this card with software, it doesn't have the same VRMs other cards do.

Other Thoughts: Overall though, very nice card for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Purchase

Pros: Can't beat the performance/price ratio. Excellent card for anyone who want to run games nicely, but isn't obsessed with needing everything maxed out in the newest games. I actually find my CPU (AMD Athlon X2 4600) being the bottle-neck on new games such as GTAIV. It looks cool too :)

Cons: Can be surprisingly noisy when the computer is idle, but playing games I don't even notice it (just turn up the volume, lol). I'm sure I could tweak the fan settings to help with this though.

Other Thoughts: Runs great in Windows 7 x64, and Vista x64 that I previously had installed. I've had zero issues with the games I've tested: GTAIV, Unreal Tournament 3, Battlefield 2, Demigod.

Some people complain about the card's size, but I had no troubles at all fitting it into my QPACK case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811144160)

I have an quiet, variable-speed exhaust fan right next to the card which probably helps with the heating issues that others have been commenting on. I haven't tried running anything without that fan on (which was there before I got this card).
