5 out of 5 eggsOff to a good start

Pros: HDMI output,
No driver issues.

Cons: none so far...

Other Thoughts: This was purchased for a new build that includes a Lian Li PC-X2000F case, a Gigabyte P67A-UD7-B3 mobo, 16GB of G.Skill DDR3 SDRAM, and a 640GB RAID 0 array on the SATA III ports. OS is Win 7 Pro 64 bit. Installed driver is 8.782.0.0, and it works just fine connected to the HDMI port on my HP w2207h monitor.

The case has more than enough room, so the size of the card is not an issue for me. The weight was more than I expected. I'm glad the case includes a support for the graphics card.

It may be a minor thing, but it's nice to finally be able to stream YouTube at 1080p, and have the video play smoothly. I'm looking forward to putting this card through it's paces with something more substantial.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Runs cool (haven't benchmarked but I haven't found a game I own yet that pushes it above 65c)

Also runs everything I have at max settings, not saying a lot since most of my new games are about a year old, but runs them seamlessly.

Cons: It's huge, make sure you have enough room.

Runs a bit loud.

Other Thoughts: Great card, Radeon forever!

3 out of 5 eggsUpdated my review: drivers are not very stabel for Win 7 64-bit

Pros: I was critical in my last review about the cheap cables. Well I just realized that the cheap cables were from the new monitors and not the card. Video card works well enough. Drives two 27-inch panels.

Cons: Video Drivers give errors. No mDP to DVI adapters.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointing about the drivers not really stable enough. This experience will make me probably second guess buying Gigabyte products.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This card model is a beast. I've been able to run a majority of my games on highest graphics and keep smooth gameplay with the only drawback being heat. It has plenty of ports and supports up to 3 monitors which is perfect for multi-screen users.

Cons: Didn't come with any cables which wasn't really a problem for me (it does come with a DVI>VGA adapter though), but it might be for others. Also the biggest con I've found is Java apps are blurry for some reason. It seems card specific as java can't offer a fix.

Other Thoughts: Didn't seem worthwhile to knock off much for the java apps, it's a nuisance but ATI will probably issue a fix.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent, BUT...Needs more VRAM

Pros: Good value for 1 GB card. 3 Year warranty. Probably perfect for a 21" monitor.

Cons: Insufficient VRAM for a 31" monitor.

Other Thoughts: Other Thoughts: Came up short on memory when trying to run "Rise of Flight" at max settings of 2560 x 1600 on a Dell 31" monitor. I was simply asking too much of it. I exchanged for a Giga-Byte HD 6970 which cost a lot more, but not as much as a Crossfire-x setup. Perhaps a 2 GB card with a 6950 would have sufficed and saved me $70, but of course I didn't see that option until after the deed was done. The HD 6970 could run Paramount Studios!

1 out of 5 eggsNice while it lasted

Pros: While it ran it ran great with close to a steady 60fps in most title's with 16x AF and 4xAA at 1080p (the only games that didn't do so well weer metro and crysis but thats understandable)

Cons: after about 2 weeks it started crashing randomly in games. then I started getting artifacting and crash's, and now even my desktop has blue dots appearing all over. I've tried different driver versions and doing a clean sweep and reinstall but to no avail. I've also tested my power supply with a voltmeter and it's fine. the cards defiantly failing...sad as it's the first GFX card I've ever had fail and therefore the last Gigabyte card I'll buy.

Other Thoughts: the support site won't load for me for some reason so I'm having trouble contacting Gigabyte. Hopefully I get this sorted out soon.

4 out of 5 eggsCheapest DVI cables I've ever seen

Pros: Cards feel solid. 6-Pin power connectors make good snug contact. Didn't have to fuss with shifting the card in the slot to allow for a solid connection to the DVI cable in the back of the case.

Software with the card makes it very easy to overclock GPU core and memory. Slightly overclocked, temps run in the middle upper 50's deg-C during idle conditions.

Cons: The DVI cables that come with are so cheap AND short, it's ridiculous to even include. There are no adapters for mDP to DVI, but they give you a CRT adapter? You gotta be kidding. Buying that high end of a card, who would have a CRT/VGA? I suppose for HTPC display screens, but then you wouldn't need that high end of a card to begin with.

Other Thoughts: Display Port connections are obviously the next thing, the cards have 2 mDP and 2 DVI, nearly all monitors are DVI, why would you not include adapters for mDSP to DVI? The DVI cables are 3-ft cables. Again, useless, and dang near as thin as speaker wire (actually thinner than Monster cable speaker wire).

In the end all these negatives are not critical, hence my 4-egg rating, but really. A quality effort for 90%, but that last 10% is horrible.

If you were hoping to use the DVI cables, plan on ordering replacement pairs separately.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks for me!

Pros: Huge upgrade over my 8800GTS 512 OC. DX11 for my new Win7 install. Quiet. I can run my favorite games on full blast with no slowdown.

Cons: Noticed some visual glitching when scrolling large windows. I expect a driver update would fix this.

5 out of 5 eggsNot too bad

Pros: I use to own a GTX 460 Sonic Platinum (Palit) card and I have to say, this 6870 out-performs it. I got much better frame rates with many games (ex. Black Ops, Metro 2033, Borderlands, Medal of Honor, etc). I was always slightly annoyed with some of the slight lag in some games, and the 6870 took card of that. I also think the overall quality is improved too over my previous card.

Cons: I have just two cons:
- Fan is quite loud after a manual setting of 31% (I use MSI Afterburner)
- Some games, my card temps can be between 71-74)

Other Thoughts: This is my first Gigabyte-brand card and thus far, I like it. It'll be nice to see if they try doing anything with the different with this card later like in their SOC series with ultra-durable VGA materials.

*Thumbs up*
