3 out of 5 eggslove/hate

Pros: amazing graphics, lots of display ports, blah ba blah, very good performance from this card!

Cons: The fan on my unit is JUNK! I've had it for 5 months and the fan went out, I have a filter on each one of my case fans and my case is extremely clean but the fan is making a horrible noise. ASUS said they dont sell repleacement fans and i would have to send it in to get worked on and they dont even cover it???? Spend $550 on a video card with a 2 dollar fan motor in it??? couldnt they have beefed up the fan a bit on this thing???

Asus if you read this hook a brother up!!! I've spent a ton of money with you guys!

Other Thoughts: Also make sure what screens your getting will be supported. I had 3 22" 1080p screens i wanted to hook up using DVI cables.... This card will only allow you to run 2 displays if your using DVI cables unless you buy a 100+ dollar adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied customer

Pros: Major improvement over my x850 card. Do not need to disconnect audio from TV and connect to computer to watch movies over the internet. Sound runs through card nicely. Having fun with experimenting with the features.

Cons: Not a con just a personal preference. I use the desktop for both gaming and home threatre. Case sits in a wall, along with the display,keyboard and mouse, so the system can be pushed into the wall when not in use. The 5870 card's fan runs louder than I would prefer. I had to placed a sound barrier in the wall to deaden noise.

Other Thoughts: There was a note in other reviews with 890gx boards suggesting to not install hmdi audio to run your 7.1 surround sound with gaming. I did install it and simple disabled the hmdi sound device while gaming. Then enable when not gaming.

Card ran at 38-42C, fan level 1, until I installed a couple of hard drives. Now runs at 45-48C, fan level 2. Not the cards fault. The case design places the hard drives right in front of the video card. Plan to push drives up 6 inches into the DVD/CD bay area to allow card to run cooler. So you may want to look at where the motherboard places the card in relation to the harddrives.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: - Fast, but you should already know that if you're looking at this card
- Nice being able to have up to 6 monitors off of one card (goodbye my need for Crossfire)
- This card is actually pretty quiet, even under load.. I'm impressed
- As imfloatingaway mentioned and as with most of the higher end ASUS cards, this is very nicely packaged. Reminds me of when I buy Razer gear.
- Newegg did a great job shipping (as always!)

Cons: - After 2 monitors, Eyefinity requires an active DP converter per extra display that is not DisplayPort ready (e.g. dvi/vga/hdmi) which is pricey (~$100/each adapter).
- Although not a con and becoming somewhat typical, this card is very long (the specs say 9", but its actually 11.5" long)

Other Thoughts: Remember, if you want more than 2 monitors and you're running vga/dvi/hdmi - you'll need the ACTIVE adapter. The passive ones will not work. I haven't found any on newegg, but you can find them at other stores (hint hint newegg!) Overall, I'm pleased with this upgrade (Crossfired 4890s -> 5870 Eyefinity)

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Superbly packaged.
No change over the reference design of the 1GB model.
Has the included SmartDoctor option if OverClocking is desired, but this can also be accomplished with ATI Overdrive or Afterburner.
The addition of an extra GB of memory makes for a MUCH smoother gameplay in EyeFinity.
The fans are pretty quiet even when ramped to 50%.

Cons: Pricy.
Not sure if the extra 50 dollar premium is worth it compared to all other E6 models.

Other Thoughts: Improvement in FPS in all my games on a 24" 3x1 EyeFinity setup.
