4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card

Pros: This card runs all my games at highest settings, 1080p full hd. It looks sweet, and keeps pretty cool with stock cooling. It's a big heavy card, but they still left room so I can fit another one and xfire 'em. Price-to-performance and feature ratio is amazing, didn't expect this kind of performance out of my low budget. Eyefinity capability is something I will definately be using when I get the cash for a couple more 1080p screens ;)

Cons: Once when I was overclocking from 820 to 850, the drivers crashed. Worked fine on reboot though. No problems since.

Other Thoughts: This is a great card for a great price, and it'll play all the games you can throw at it. I'd quote my fps for this card on some games, but my cpu is quite underpowered compared to this card to give an accurate representation of performance. I have an i5-650 3.2Ghz Dual Core, and i'm getting 30-60fps on Battlefield Bad Company 2 (highest settings of course) but some people with more powerful cpu's are getting upwards of 150fps. Just something to think about.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk, Waiting to See on RMA

Pros: It looks cool

Cons: Crashed my PC randomly while playing any game. I didn't even OC it and it was still worthless. Thank the maker that Newegg discontinued it.

Other Thoughts: I am hoping that Newegg provides me with a card that isn't going to provide me with another headache...and MSI used to be worth buying, but after a bad MoBo and a bad VGA, I am through with them...all hail Asus

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: I upgraded from a single 4850. It went flawlessly. It is quieter and my case runs 15-20 F Degrees cooler. I run Vistas SP2 and Dual core 3ghz with 4 gig ram. Core came stock at 820 Mhz and Mem at 1100. The games I play show dramtic differences. LOTRO, Starcraft 2 and Civ 5 all on max setting with AAx4 run smoothly, it is like I am playing new games. Dir X 11 is worth it IMO. Great card, exceelent Xmas present. The wife said NewEgg exceeded delivery expectations. This was an Xmas present, my wife has limited computer knowledge, she said NewEgg was a great place for her to shop.

Cons: Missing HDMI adapter that was supposed to be included.

Other Thoughts: I am terribly pleased. Best Xmas present I received this year by a far margin. Any LOTRO players out there, no stuttering 1920x1080 ultra settings, everything enabled 21st Hall names up, AAx4 tons of players runs silky smooth. I LOVE IT

3 out of 5 eggsUsed!

Pros: It may work just fine.

Cons: No shrink wrap, "used" box has been opened, DVD jacket crumpled, looks like a return. What is going on, New Egg?

Other Thoughts: I paid almost $200 in a new one, not a open box used one. I'd really rather have a new one even if this works OK. Let's see how this turns out.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Tiny! It fits in my microATX case easily without covering the SATA ports on the lower right of my motherboard. It overclocks very easily with MSI Afterburner. I have it at 850mhz/1200mhz, but it could definitely go higher if unlocked. Cooled very well and never goes above 60 Celsius even with these overclocks.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: With Riva tuner, you can enable unoffcial overclocking, and put this baby to 950mhz on the core.. No sweat. @ that speed its as fast as a reference 6870. Thats insane. The cooler from MSI keeps this card nice and cool

Cons: You have to be a overclocker to understand riva tuner.

Other Thoughts: 20% more performance for free... Srsly. Need I say more.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty nice card.

Pros: Ran World of warcraft on Ultra, with the graphics macro on, averaging 40 fps in Dalaran. Ran between 20 and 30 on Gamer in Crysis: Warhead. Plenty of Bang for $200 bucks!

Cons: None as of now.

Other Thoughts: I'm definitely consider buying another to run in crossfire
