4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good...

Pros: It's only been installed for a week, but it's doing everything I need it to do. I just needed a good, cheap card.

Cons: Didn't come with a crossfire bridge.

Other Thoughts: I got two of them expecting to run crossfire, but now I have to buy the bridge. I haven't been able to find it locally, so now I have to pay shipping and handling and wait for it...

3 out of 5 eggsNo flipp'in crossfire Bridge

Pros: Havn't set it up yet so no report on performance. Smaller than my Saphire 4850 so fits in my ANTEC better.

Cons: Never included a crossfire cable. Newegg could send a warning in the specs that no crossfire bridge is included. Saves me the trouble of doing a separate order and paying an additional shipping fee.

5 out of 5 eggsReally

Pros: None, I know someone who has it and he says it is nothing short of excellent, so for that I praise the card, knowing once I use it I will more than likely be pleased.

Cons: I AM WRITING THIS FOR PEOPLE SUCH AS MYSELF, IT IS NOT AN ATTACK ON THE PRODUCT NECESSARILY, JUST A PRECAUTION/WARNING TO BUYERS LIKE ME.

My computer is old, very old. A 2004 computer model with many components from that time and a PCI-E motherboard. They include a 5" 6 pin power connector (you'll need extra power for this card) and it will not reach your power supply (assuming your computer is like mine). So I'm now having to buy an extension cord AND a new power box. My PSU wattage is only 300 watts, you need at least 450 watts to run the card. So I'm having to spend an extra $35 to run this card.

Other Thoughts: LIKE I SAID, the product is superb as my close friend told me, and I take his word for it after seeing it firsthand. BUT, if you have an older computer and are just expecting to make a huge jump graphics card wise, you may want to do some research and find out where your power box is in correlation to your Graphics card slot, you wattage, and your motherboard.

Just do your research.

4 out of 5 eggsInexpensive, but....

Pros: This board is a fully functional 4850, not crippled in any way. Would be a fine general-purpose graphics card. The shorter length is much appreciated.

Cons: Does not include a crossfire bridge. The heatsink/fan does not do a good job of cooling the memory, and is especially ineffective if there is another card next to it. A plastic cover to vent the hot air out of the adjacent PCI slot would help a lot. The screws on the included VGA/DVI adapter are impossible to tighten.

Other Thoughts: In hindsight, I would have spent a few $$ more for a 48xx card with a better heatsink and the CF bridge.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Card for Cheap

Pros: Super fast card - runs a lot cooler with the bigger fan/heatsink than the original design did.

It is NOT the fastest card on the market but for the money it's very hard to go wrong - runs all my games (I have mostly somewhat older games) with ease - Doom3 and Madden run maxed out like silk. I have seen this card run Crysis pretty reasonably as well, which is one reason I purchased it for myself. Bottom line is it's very usable with the majority of the newer games with demanding graphics. I could have overclocked it but I personally didn't find it necessary to do, at least not yet.

Small footprint - this card is a lot shorter than many video cards available, making it very good choice for putting on mATX motherboards that have less real estate. Mine sits in an Intel DG41TY mobo and overlaps with nothing.

Cons: The oversized fan/heatsink might make it difficult to run a pair. Would depend on the distance between the PCI-E slots.

Keep your cables out of close proximity with the cooling apparatus - this same huge fan/heatsink could probably do some damage to them.

Other Thoughts: I got this card from Newegg for $85.50 after the offer code, and the price has been dropped even further now. A lot of power for a very pedestrian price - definitely recommend it for the budget gamer/multi-purpose user.

5 out of 5 eggsso far so good

Pros: very good little card, I have been maxing out the graphics on all the games I play, and the card keeps up (though my CPU still gives me a bit of lag, this will be fixed by the end of this week when I get my new one). the 256bit interface really makes a difference. overclocking was easy, and the card runs at 62c-70c under a heavy load. great price and great performance!

Cons: the fan can be a bit loud when it kicks into high gear, but that does not happen to often. I guess if I were playing high end games 24/7 it might bother me, but its really not too bad. the fan can move a lot of air, I would rather have an occasionally loud fan then a GPU that runs hot.

Other Thoughts: great card! I recommend it! best card for under $100

4 out of 5 eggsmystery card

Pros: Card runs cool. Short card will fit in smaller computers. Runs as you would expect from a 4850. Fan is quiet.

Card will overclock if you want, still runs 65 C in a small poorly cooled case.

Cons: No manual fan control but the auto control of the fan vs. temp is very good. NOT one speed like some cards that end up cooked under load.

Other Thoughts: If you research this card, you will find it is made by HIS. The blue fan is the key. Go look at the other HIS video cards you will find this card. I believe Visiontek and Diamond are both re-packagers, they do not make any of there own cards. The HIS decal is replaced with a V for Visiontek.

5 out of 5 eggsBest card for 100$

Pros: Card performs as it should.
Very good performance/price ratio.
You will not get a better card at that price.
Lifetime Warranty from Visiontek.

Cons: None as of now.

Other Thoughts: This card was released in 2008 but it still performs pretty good on today's game. But do not expect to run it high settings on max resolutions.
I run it at 1440x900 and I can do high settings on almost all games.

Just to give you an idea here's some games:

-Heroes of Newerth max settings max AA
-Mass effect max settings max AA
-Civilization max settings (runs considerably smooth, just loading between turns might seem abit stuttery)
-Napoleon Total War high settings no AA (stutters at times, but that might be a CPU bottleneck as some are telling me)

My recommendation: If you can not spend more than 100$, buy this card.. otherwise save up some money and buy a 5770 (150$) or even a 6850 (190~200$) / 6870 (250$)
The 68xx cards just got released, so expect some price drops on the 5xxx cards in the next weeks or so.. at least I think it should :)

5 out of 5 eggsGREAAAT CARD!!

Pros: Its a beast of card, i am playing SPLIT SECOND with all settings maxed out, paired with 3gb of RAM and an e6550 C2D.
Runs smoothly on my low-end foxconn G31.

Cons: None, i think. OH! yes the fan is like a blade, it hurt my finger xD

Other Thoughts: I bought it when it was $89.99 and imported it to El Salvador.
Im very happy with it.
