3 out of 5 eggsIt was good at first....

Pros: It was good when i first got it. It plays games at max, no problem, and doesn't cost an arm+leg.

Cons: Recently, it has been showing faint white lines going up and down my monitor. The reason i think it is my gfx card is that when i updated my drivers the problem was reduced, but not eradicated. If it was the monitor, it would have not changed when i updated drivers.

Other Thoughts: Ok card, if it didn't have those lines.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Well everything. I have not had a single problem, Runs well on all games. These card's like Quad Core CPU's so perfect for me. Never tried the driver on CD, went to MSI web site and got the latest drivers. Worked fine.

Upgrading from Sapphire 4850 512 MB. Loved that card &This one is just much better and Cooler. Plus all the software it came with was excellent. 3Dmark11 Free. enough said.

Cons: Not much as for accessories. And really no sticker for my case, MSI i'm very disappointed some of us actually want a bloody MSI sticker on our case. Now my case does not say fueled by MSI or anything like that.

1 out of 5 eggsSay way from all 6850s any brand

Pros: Looks Good

Cons: Black screen of death on a good handful of cards. Take your pick if you feel lucky get any 6850. However beware of the black screen of death sending the monitor in standby. The cards have a bad voltage controller that spikes voltage to the memory and causes a crash. Search any forum and you get a common error. Black screen of death on heavy graphic game demands. I am on my second RMA awaiting a 3rd card. All brands are effected so at least if you pick MSI you get a fair RMA response times.

2 out of 5 eggsCrashes at 820 MHz

Pros: Strong card for the price, superb cooling and power consumption, can run all current titles max settings @1920, theoretically can OC up to performance of 6870 without issue (see cons).

Cons: Kept hard crashing after 5-20 minutes in any 3D application, especially furmark and other bench apps. Forced to reset from case power switch. Could only stabilize by under-clocking to 750 MHZ. Was not a heat issue according to GPU-Z logs.

Other Thoughts: Bad experience with both Newegg and MSI:

B/c of new PC build, I spent 2 days to isolate crashes to GPU only. Was able to stabilize with 10.10e drivers & under-clocking the GPU to 750 MHz: -70 stock, and -25 other 6850's sold on Newegg.

I took this info to MSI tech support ticket who after 72 hour delay told me "upgrade drivers to catalyst 10.11" Which do not support 68xx series cards. I informed them, tried it anyway (crash) and then after 2 more days without reply I decided to exchange with Newegg.

After Newegg received my RMA, they would not exchange because they have discontinued that card's part number
(N82E16814127531) and started selling
(N82E16814127548) the EXACT SAME card (including 820 MHz GPU). I called and asked if was possible to switch, they said no. So I had to wait for newegg's refund to fully process, then re-order, wait for shipping again while my new PC is useless instead of having a customer service rep change two digits in a RMA for the same card!

5 out of 5 eggsThe ol' one two

Pros: I ordered the normal version and got the OC version: thank you NEWEGG.

Current Windows 7 Drivers from AMD are nice and stable on my system.

Plays GTA IV pretty well on high settings.

Cons: No linux drivers yet... AMD, come on!

I mean, come on.

Other Thoughts: I've managed to OC my card to about 920-930 on the core and 1130 on the memory with 6870 voltages. I am very happy.

I think this is a way better solution than the 57xx series if outcome is being able to play dx11.

A gtx 460 1gb priced around $165-$175 OTD would have swayed me to NVIDIA especially considering the superior driver support (linux)
