5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Runs smooth when paired with good drivers. Most claim to have high tech knowledge but will give negative ratings when running the latest drivers. Ran great with 12.1 drivers but terrible up to 12.3 and back to smooth with the latest. I run the fan at about 65% as it can be noisy past that.

Cons: Can be noisy if you crank the fan up but you really don't need to do that.

Other Thoughts: Picked up two of these for a previous build running in crossfire. Only had issues during certain driver updates, when that happens just stay with the working drivers.

2 out of 5 eggsGood Product Bad Rma service!

Pros: Great card, even better box.

Cons: Was a great card for 5 months then hdmi port was going. I switched hdmi cables and a monitor same thing. Tried my old card worked fine. So i called them got an rma and got the card a week later put it in same thing!!! So this time i was on hold and was told i could get an advanced replacment and a prepaid shipping lable through email. After verfiying my email adress and contact info i sure thought i was going to get a decent card so i can use my computer. Well its been a day now still no email!!! Now its been two weeks with out a card! I gave this company two chances to prove they loyal to customers. They lost my interest as a consumer.

Other Thoughts: I am about to upgrade my computer was looking at an asus motherboard. After this i am choosing a different company.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome

Pros: Affordable, Fast, 7.7 rating using factory settings. 256 bit memory interface helps this card perform. Easy install and flawless driver updates. Great game performance on max setting, gameplay never hits a bump even with max settings. If Newegg brings this card back Get two right from the start I promise you will love the performance.

Cons: The card does not come in an anti static Bag from the factory and that seems a little odd. Not a 7.9 at factory settings but a 7.7 works almost just as well.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a great gaming card and do not want to spend a ton of money this card will do everything you need it to with no problems. I should have bought two right from the start. Never thought DumbEgg would discontinue the card so darn quickly

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome value

Pros: Like most of the other reviews on here, I've used this card to play a lot of contemporary games on high quality settings and it never misses a beat. It's also still one of the top price performers according to Passmark, so what more can you ask for?

Cons: None that I've noticed.

Other Thoughts: I run a stock cooling system (well, one additional fan added) in a Rosewill Challenger case and temp has never been an issue for me (though haven't OC'd yet).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price
OCs well.
Performance
Temps
Quality

Cons: Asus's own voltage software doesnt work with it...lol.

Other Thoughts: See a lot of people saying these cards run hot...

Well they really don't. You can OC this particular card up to around 925 mhz gpu and still be under 70 deg at full load... Past 925 you will need a voltage increase and an aftermarket cooler.

Overclocking the memory seems to increase the heat substantially and give limited returns in regards to performance, so I have not bothered with it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card for it's price

Pros: 1. Decent Performance, playing MW3, Dirt 3, Skyrim in ultra and it doesn't give out any hiccup.
2. Running cool, I used to have 2 4870 running in crossfire and those can be used as a heater in my house, this one runs cool and silent.

Cons: 1. Only one crossfire port, I can't imagine running this puppy in quad crossfire. But that's just me.

Other Thoughts: Very good card for it's performance, today I saw Newegg trying to sell off 7770 Ghz edition at a cheaper price and yet all the views said it's bad. Good thing I bought this card before it ran out of stock. Might consider getting another one to have the crossfire mode setup. Buy this card as soon Newegg restock it!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This card really amazed me since it ran all my games in ultra high. Also it can max out any F2p game like Dota 2 and league of legends and other games like skyrim, new vegas, kingdoms of amalur. This video card usually runs quiet, and it comes with a program for overclocking and to control your fans speed. I have yet to overclock it since I really don't think its necessary but if you do overclock it right it'll be a gaming monster. I really recommend this video card since its really good, comes with a free dirt 3 coupon for steam which works, overclocking and fan control ability, it supports multiple monitors, crossfire, you can connect it to a hd tv with an hdmi cord to watch 1080p movies and more.

Cons: None that I have experienced or can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat bang for the buck

Pros: Bought this for a media pc build and am running trough HDMI to a 56" LCD tv. I watch all of my movies at 1080p and have experience very little to no video lag or tearing, and no artifacting. I have yet to OC this baby but I am considering it due to the fact that I play some games on the this setup as well.

Cons: Big, but what "modern" cards aren't?

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Graphics Card

Pros: I have got two of these. One of those I just couple of weeks back. I found the good drop in price and free DiRT3 Game coupon. It's a good game, when you are getting it for free.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I have CrossFired both of my EAH 6850 and setup an Eyefinity system, and it runs smooth. Only when I was setting up Eyefinity one of the video input I was using was through HDMI, and I was getting scaled display (black bars) on that monitor. But I found the setting in ATI Vision Control center and adjusted it to 0% to do pixel 1:1 mapping. Now it works great and seamless. I am not able to run DiRT3 game in full screen though, others games and videos work, I guess need to tweak some settings in DiRT3 game.
