5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: This is a beautiful card, well designed and beast in performance. Always does what I need it two. It's big too, the size and mass gives the inside of the case a feeling of worthiness.

Cons: Just make sure you plug it in all the way and use two screws to hold it in.

still expensive if you can find one.

Other Thoughts: I wish I bought the right motherboard to support two or three and two or three more of these cards. (CCmining)

5 out of 5 eggsEpic Card!

Pros: Looks awesome, 6 monitor outputs, CrossFireX compatible, 2GB RAM.

I bought this because it was cheap compared to when I bought my first 5870 (this was $230, my other one cost $420 and it's not x6). It is a reference-design style which matches my other card perfectly except for the label and the outputs. The reference design cards have software voltage adjustment, a solid full shell cover with backplate, and a powerful fan.

Cons: There are no major cons, but I had a few issues:

Uses an 8-pin and a 6-pin PCIe power connector despite having the exact same GPU as my other 5870 (which uses 2x 6-pin connectors). I didn't have anymore PCIe connectors so I used the two included adapters. It doesn't make much sense to require two Molex connections per adapter as the PSU connectors are all on one of two output wires, so 4 wires are unnecessary and clutter.

CrossFireX installation and setup was difficult. The card was picked up by 11.3 right away but crashed with Afterburner. After discovering a driver feature called ULPS crashes Afterburner, I disabled it and stopped the crashing. I was able to enable CFX but GPU2 was getting zero usage and the game had low FPS. Finally after switching between modes and installing the Radeon Pro tool, I managed to get CFX enabled and working in most games (DX11 games still don't seem to work right, but it's a driver issue and should not detract you from this card in any way)

Other Thoughts: My other card is a Diamond HD5870 reference design, not Eyefinity x6. I'm running 3 Dell ST2210 1920x1080 monitors in Eyefinity. My system is a 4.12GHz i7 930, Gigabyte X58A-UD3R, 6GB DDR3 OCZ Gold, and Antec EA650 650W PSU.

I had doubts about the EA650 PSU being able to handle an overclocked i7 and two 5870's but it appears to work just fine. I have both cards (not in CFX mode) running Folding@Home GPU and the Folding@Home SMP running on the i7. Everything maxed out and the PSU is still pushing 12V.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Deal on the Internet

Pros: This card gets Higher frame rates than the Asus 1gb 5870 (15 to 25% more) at a resolution of 1920x1080 with all settings on max, and runs cooler also. I must of recieved a card that was built flawless because I can't even hear the GPU fan when its running at 35% after hours of gaming.

Cons: I didn't buy a second one before they were sold out . I did have an issue with the initial instal, the gpu was not being picked up by the moniter. After 4 hrs of pulling my hair out, I changed the DP adpter for a different 1 and it worked. The DP to DVI adpter was bad. (never heard of this issue before) but after that its smooth sailing all the way....

Other Thoughts: I am extemely happy with this GPU. Keep up the good work AMD and Gigabyte.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product...so far

Pros: Great card. I now have a crossfire setup with this card as the primary, and my old Sapphire 5870 as gpu 2. I also noticed an increase in performance when I benchmarked this card by itself. It actually comes with a Crossfire bridge.

Cons: Anyway, no problems with the card yet. Ran furmark in crossfire mode for an hr or 2, and no problems.

Other Thoughts: I wish there were other shipping options, like USPS. It costs $20+ just to ship to my location by using Fedex or ups.

5 out of 5 eggsFinally, a 5870 without bugs.

Pros: Has a stable bios out of the box unlike my Asus 5970. No coldbug. An amazing price for an eyefinity version. Looks awesome. Matches my 5970 with the full body heatsink on both sides and air intakes on the end. Runs great with 2gb as compared to the 1gb per core on my 5970. Its in crossfire running no monitors so can't comment on the eyefinity aspect.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: If you want a 5870 buy this one, even if you dont need the eyefinity.

5 out of 5 eggsWell Worth The Money

Pros: This card is phenomenal! It is banging out on average 20% higher framerates than my 1GB Power Color 5870. A lot more than I expected for just adding extra memory. I knew I wanted a 2GB 5870 for my next vid card, I picked this one (believe it or not) because it was the only 2GB 5870 card without whack anime graphics on it. I hate the cards with weird pictures on them!

Cons: This card is big. My NZXT Lexa mid-tower required some man-handling with pliers in order to get the card in, and it is still an uncomfortable fit. I'll be going to a full tower shortly; seems like mid-towers just aren't going to cut it for serious gaming anymore.

Other Thoughts: I have so far tested the card extensively with Civilization V, Fallout New Vegas, and Battlefield Bad Company 2.

Core i7 960 @ 3.2GHz
MSI X58 Pro-E
12GB (6x2) G.skill DDR3 1333 MHz (CL9)

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: awesome! card works like a charm.

Cons: I write instructions for a living and one thing the manual didn't mention was that both the 6 pin and 8 pin power connectors needed to be attached. In other words, the documentation was horrible.

2 out of 5 eggsincluded dongles do not enable Eyefinity

Pros: Installs quickly to properly equipped systems. ATI drivers seem solid.

Cons: The supplied PASSIVE mini-displayport dongles for DVI and HDMI do NOT allow more than TWO DISPLAYS. To get the Eyefinity functionality, you must either have native Displayport monitors for all but one port, OR 'active' displayport dongles as documented on the AMD/ATI web site.

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte and other OEMs selling Eyefinity display cards under their brand should be including correct dongles so that the functionality of the card is actually usable. Throwing in cheap passive dongles is wrong because then the card does not operate as advertised out of the box. When purchased separately in small quantities, the active mini displayport dongles make an already comparatively expensive display card much more expensive.

The Gigabyte manual is HORRIBLE. It explains none of these Eyefinity cabling issues.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!!

Pros: Runs everything I throw at it at 1920x1080 including Metro 2033 with tessalation on at around an average of 90 FPS. It runs very quiet and looks great inside of my Corsair 800D. No driver problems the newest catalyst drivers work perfectly.

Cons: Could of done a better job with the packaging. Not enough mini display adapters, and no STICKERS!!! We love stickers.

Other Thoughts: AMD Phenom II 955 @ 4.0 Ghrtz
Asus Crosshair IV AM3
4GB Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 2133
Gigabyte 5870 2GB
Corsair H50
Corsair HX750
Corsair 800D
