4 out of 5 eggsGREAT card until RMA!

Pros: this card played any game i threw at except the latest GTA.
very Good card if you get a good one! i got the next model up which was a BIG +++

Cons: runs hot at 50 degrees c... RMA because causing flickering if overclocked at all, screen went blank in mid game like it just didnt even recognize the monitor being hooked up. it finally failed on me so i had to rma it after almost 8 months.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy this card failed so i had to send it in and they didnt have one in stock and they couldnt fix it so they sent me the next model up which was the 5850 and ohh myy i was a happy camper!!! this had dx11 unlike this 4890 and also has eyefinity! this card is a BEAST!!! glad this card failed and they didnt have another to give me! i gave it 4 eggs cus service was Great and the card was very good until the rma. so if you had got a good one it is a very good card, it could have just been the one i got!

2 out of 5 eggsHmm...

Pros: Can run some high end games at high frame rates. Looks nice. Adjustable fan control.

Cons: This card couldnt keep a steady frame rate while playing TF2, Prototype, or Portal. Very easy to run games but ATI is just too careless with their designing. My first and last ATI card. Nvidia is a way more steady and reliable chipset. My old geforce 9500gt ran both games way smoother and steadier than this peice of junk.

From what i've seen from videos and other people using this card. Any overclocking causes flickering on the screens. I didnt try it after seeing this. Calling shenanigans on the 300% OC.

Other Thoughts: Nvidia > ATI

Do yourself a favor and buy a GTX 275

3 out of 5 eggsupdated review

Pros: 1GB DDR5 RAM. 2-DVI ports

Cons: Draws WAY too much power. Manual supplied with card has no relation to the actual EAH4890 graphics card. Nowhere does the manual say you MUST CONNECT BOTH AN 8-PIN CONNECTOR AND A 6-PIN POWER CONNECTOR TO YOUR PS.

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my earlier 1-Egg review. I ended up having to replace my 550-watt PS with an 850-watt -- the minimum you need, IMO. I almost didn't have enough connectors to power everything in my computer AND the graphics card. The only real plus is ASUS has US based tech support, so I called them when I couldn't get my computer to boot, originally. I expect more from ASUS. In the end, the performance is not what I expected. The card/drivers crash my system on a somewhat regular basis, and Photoshop CS4 seems incompatible with the card and drivers (multiple crashes). Is it AMD/ATI? Is it ASUS? I can't isolate the problems enough to fins the root of the problems.

3 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Replaced my two 3870's in crossfire to free up space for my raid controller card. Also uses less power.

Cons: Only as good as my two 3870's in crossfire. Any overclocking causes flicker. None of the ASUS software works with Windows 7 64 bit. Read a lot about the problem finally gave up. 300% overclock margin? Like to see that. Best i could get was 7%.

Other Thoughts: I see the FPS dip below 20 in Crysis. Average would be around 28-32 with 1650 x 1080 all settings at max. Not running a powerhouse, but I have a phenom II X4 940 @ 3.8 with 4gb DDR2 1066.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice and solid GPU

Pros: Very solid card for the money, CrossFires easily, OCs easily and for a large card has a decent form factor.

I built a new system just to play high-end games and decided to give this card a try, it was a good choice looking back at it. You can do soft OC on the fly with the included software, regulate voltage in the CPU/Memory and regulate the fan speed, all in your native OS. The card was plug & play as well, my EVGA x58 recognized it without any funny business (I know, ATI card on a EVGA board :-p).

I would recommend this GPU to both experienced and inexperienced users, there are many mods available for it including dominator heat sinks or you can leave it stock as well.

Playing AION, Borderlands, Crysis 2, ModernWarfare 2 I get over 130FPS all the time on full settings @ 1680x1050.

Buy this card and you will be happy.

Cons: Yeah, there was one thing that bothered me. The documentation enclosed with the card, it was of a Radeon that is no longer sold and does not even have the same dimension/chipset. Something else they forgot to mention (in both online/offline docs) they changed to power pins/plugs on the card, you need both a 6-pin and 8-pin modular to get this puppy to power up, lots of power draw. With an i7-920 make sure you have at least 850 Watt coming out of you PSU (the more the better really).

Other Thoughts: Newegg did a good job shipping this out on time. The packaging (both from Asus and Newegg) was decent and prevented any possible damage to the card. Make sure you have a big enough case for this, I would not bother with a mini-ATX you will just get frustrated. Full size board and tower is highly recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great with AutoCAD and games but...

Pros: This card was easy to install though rather large. Required some rerouting of a few cables and as others have mentioned it did block one of my pci slots. Did not need it so no big deal. The fan is a little noisy as the system starts up but calms down to an acceptable level after that.
It has made using AutoCAD a much more enjoyable and screen redraws are very fast.

Cons: My Dell 24" monitor blinks off for a brief moment several times an hour (the DVI input symbol pops up everytime it happens). I have a Gateway 24" and a Dell 24" hooked up to the card and the Gateway has never blinked off once. I looked on the internet and see that this is a problem others are having as well. I hope that ATI (or Dell) will come out with a driver soon that addresses this problem. I keep updating the drivers as soon as they get published but still to no avail.

Other Thoughts: Asus P6T Deluxe V2 mb
Intel i7 920
Win 7 64 bit

5 out of 5 eggsSo far a great card!

Pros: Great card, great cooling, great company. Thanks New Egg!!

Cons: would be nice if it's smaller.

Other Thoughts: A make sure you have the right power supply, this baby sucks power (just like any other card)

2 out of 5 eggsCrummy F.P.S. in Crysis...

Pros: Real solid BIG card, looks like I could drop it from my 6th story window and still use it, but i dunno why anyone would...

Seems to be pretty solid software

Cons: For some reason I am only getting a 5-8fps on Crysis at high setting with 1920x1080 and different A.A. settings!!!!

I am trying to update the driver but it is only downloading at 5kb/s directly from Asus global dlm (why so slow???)

This card is BIG, it blocks out both of my PCI express slots on a Asus m4a79xtd evo M.B.

Oh well, I hope this is just a driver issue and not a dead card.... Im kinda a Asus fanboy but am rather angry at these results...

Other Thoughts: My first results in rig building are as follows...

AMD phenom II x4 965
Asus m4a79xtd evo motherboard
Antec 300 Illusion case
HP 2159 monitor
Crucial 64gb sata SSD (runs my O.S. only)
WD Caviar 120gb h.d. runs at 7200 i think with a 8mb cache (crysis is installed in)
WD Caviar Green 15EADS 1.5TB 32mb cache
Windows 7 professional 64-bit
G-skill f3 12800CL9T-6gbnq (only using 2 of 3 strips)
Thermaltake TR2 RX 850W PSU
ASUS EAH4890 1GB GDDR5 G.P.U. (retail drivers installed)
Tuniq Tower 120 extreme fan 3pin

4 out of 5 eggsA great choice

Pros: Runs perfect in my rig. I have two in crossfire and my FPS never drops.
I was playing Dragon Age in full settings with a steady 60fps. Later I noticed that I had crossfire turned off while I was playing. One of these cards can do more than my old Engtx295 could. Having two I can tell I won't need to upgrade any time soon.
The two fans are very quiet. The other fans in my case are pretty loud so they may just be drowned out.

Cons: Overclocking even a little leads to flickering and errors. Could be my board or even my monitor for all I know. I can't OC my cards in the least without having problems.

Other Thoughts: I had no problems with heat at all. That could be thanks to fact that I can't OC this card.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: Able to play every game out there extremely well.
If you've got issues with this, check your other specs.

Cons: Price seemed a little high compared to other graphics cards in same range

Other Thoughts: Runs a little hot, but it can handle the heat.

Couldn't hurt to aim a few fans it's way

Hooked this puppy up in the following environment:

Antec 900 Mid tower
Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P
Western Digital VelociRaptor 10k rpm, 160 gb
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Phenom II x4 955
