5 out of 5 eggsVery sweet card

Pros: Runs games with easy. Been running dX10 games and have yet to see it hiccup. Nice price point for the money.Read some reviews. This card performs right up there with the high end Nvidia's for half the price.

Cons: The free game promised was not in the box. Going to be calling today about that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great graphics card, no issues running any game that I've thrown at it since I've got it. This replaced a 8800GT which just blows it out of the water, of course.

Cons: It runs really hot, but that's typical of the 4800 series. I tried the manual fan fix, but it just made my card terribly loud. I didn't plan on keeping the stock cooling anyhow.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the stock cooling with a Zalman VF1000 which keeps it at 60 C with a 790/1025 overclock. Also, I had no issues with drivers like the other poster.

Pros: Fast very fast. crisp picture runs new games no slowdowns

Cons: DRIVERS,DRIVERS,DRIVERS ATI has the worst drivers ever !!!! took 3 days of reinstalling everything to determine what order to install all my drivers. lines lines lines on my screens. And ATI support blaming everything else other than there drivers

Other Thoughts: i have been running nvidia for the last 8yrs (last card 8800GT superclocked) due to all the problems ATI has with there drivers and thought well they are AMD now things got to be better .I was wrong !!i would of given 4 to 5 stars if it wasent for the drivers.ATI blames my other hardware.dont know how
everything is grade AA+ and matching. even newest AMD chipset

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: I upgraded to think from a GeForce 9800 GX2 because SLI is just too buggy and I wanted an equal performing card with a single GPU. It's been about 10 years since the last time I had an ATI card, and all I can say is wow! Crysis ran smoother than I've ever had it before (all high settings, 4x AA, Windows XP), and all the stutters in Warhammer I assumed were server side lag have vanished. I had to edit the .xml file to set the fan speed to 35%, and now this baby runs at a very cool 45 degrees idle and has topped at 60 degrees under load. Well worth a purchase!

Cons: None so far apart from having to edit the fan settings. But that's a quick 10-minute fix if you just do a Google search on how to do it.

Other Thoughts: Running a Q6600 @ 3.2ghz / Windows XP / 4gb of 1066 OCZ HPC RAM
