1 out of 5 eggsGot a dud and customer service from Powercolor is a joke!

Pros: Price was great, if the card had been working.

Cons: The card I received from Newegg began artifacting after 5 minutes of 2D usage. Checked the case to make sure all the fans were working and nothing was wrong. Took the card out and send an RMA request to Powercolor.

After 5 WEEKS, I received another card back from Powercolor and it works fine during 2D use. Once I began gaming, the card began artifacting. That's now 2 cards in a row that artifact under stock speeds.

Currently contacting them to return this card as well. I am hoping they will somehow give priority to my request as I've yet to game on a card I purchased almost 2 months ago.

Other Thoughts: At this rate, I'll need to upgrade again by the time I have a working card!

On a side note, my Powercolor 3870 is champ and handles the max clocking with CCC. I wanted to keep with Powercolor as my 3870 is so solid but I think I will be looking elsewhere for my next video card.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -This card recently works great most of popular games and it also run very cool and quiet.
-Newegg rocks.I got this card in two days after ordering.

Cons: It will be a super bargain if I i get the 15 bucks rebate but it was 4 weeks and I have not seen anything about my rebate.
You better not expect too much about Powercoler's rebate.

1 out of 5 eggsNever again PowerColor

Pros: Price, Perf (when it worked), onboard HDMI. HD 4800 AA/AF abilities. Fan runs cool and quiet.

Cons: Card is dead after only 6 weeks of use. The video card began to flicker erratically (blackening the entire screen) about one week ago and it happened once every few minutes in game. The card wasn't overheating (under 60C Full Load) and this was on a quality PSU that powered a 9800GTX with no problems. These issues persisted on both an XP and Vista machine in multiple games (Bioshock, TF2 & GoW). These issues worsened into entire black patches of the screen the longer I played. PowerColor tech support initially gave me the run around before telling me I just had to go online and fill out the RMA form through the "automated" system.

Other Thoughts: RMA Time from PowerColor is 3-4 weeks *AFTER* they receive my card. My PC would be down for an entire month if I didn't have a backup card. I will never buy another card from this company again. I also put my old 9800GTX back in and I'm humming along just fine without the display problems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Great performer with many nice features. Runs cooler then most 4830 cards, due to copper heatsinks on memory chips and dual slot cooler. I OC'd mine to 749x999. It still runs cool under stress. You can control the fan speed with ATI CCC on this one.

Cons: As usual, the fan is noisey at high settings.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, but large

Pros: Great specs, etc, 3 different ports is sweet!

Cons: Just be aware that the fan is so big it will block out the slot below. My motherboard goes: PCI, PCI, PCIe x1, PCIe x16, PCIe x1, so it blocks one of my PCIe x1 ports. If I had known this, I would have bought a MB such that it would block one of the old PCI slots. Oh well.

Other Thoughts: Don't bother with the driver that comes with it, go with to the web site. As of March 2009, there is a driver that works quite well under the Windows 7 Beta.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bang for Buck

Pros: This play World of Warcraft at 1920x1200 on max with Antilasting at 4x. Grid, Mirrors Edge, Assassins Creed are all playable at 1920x1200 on almost max settings.
This is really a good mid ranged card for the price.

Highest temperature I've seen it go to was about 59c
It ides around 38c at 35% fan speed

Cons: Not really a con but it didn't come with any DVI to VGA dongle or Crossfire Bridge.

Other Thoughts: I would Highly Recommend this card for anyone looking for a budget gaming card.

5 out of 5 eggsA lot of bang for not a lot of bucks

Pros: Awesome card, killer performance. OC'd to 695 core / 935 memory, ATiTool artifact tested and passed. Stock Powercolor cooler does a great job, haven't seen temps above 67c or fan speed above 59% - leave it on auto in the Catalyst Control Center; it ramps up according to temps and lowers when cooler. LF R77CA v1.0 card (ID near the PCIe terminals)

Cons: Bought 2 total, at 2 different times (same week). Card #2 which was apparently a C revision - LF R77CC v1.0 - had a bad fan that constantly ran around 80-90%. RMA'd to NewEgg, the replacement card was another LF R77CA v1.0 and that one is as flawless as #1 was. Only other con - these come with just the card, an install/instruction sheet in about 10 languages, and a driver CD (which is probably outdated). No CF bridge, no DVI -> VGA adapter, no HDMI cable, nothing. Keep that in mind. (Not that you really need any adapters, but if you buy 2 you will need to buy a CF bridge; I suggest Fleabay or the [H]ard Forums FS/FT forum. One more con - ATIKMDAG error in Vista64. Fix it by uninstalling KB952287; it worked for me. No more ATIKMDAG errors. (Keep in mind that's a Vista/Microsoft issue, not an ATi issue; nVidia owners can get a similar error - NVLDDMKM.)

Other Thoughts: If you've got the means (P45 board, TX650w psu or equivalent, decent case airflow) buy 2 to run in CF and you will have a killer combo that will practically match a 4870X2 if the game supports CF. A pair will beat a GTX 260 216sp, slightly beat a GTX 280. Granted there's newer cards out now but for the cost of 2 of these cards, you have the equivalent of a card well over $300 at slightly more than half that price. Now there's a

2 out of 5 eggsGot a dud

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: 1) Must have have received a bum card card because it ran 10*C hotter than my MSI 4830 and was FAR louder. It runs at 39% default fan speed and volume was ridiculous - turned it down to 20% and it was near silent, but the temps started climbing.

2) Comes with absolutely nothing - no adapters, cables, or Crossfire bridge. Just the card, manual and driver CD

Other Thoughts: My MSI 4830 runs at 725/1075 stable with an Accelero S1 Rev 2 passive cooler (27* Idle, 35* load, no fan). Even before I installed the S1, the stock MSI was way quieter than the Powercolor and still ran cooler. The PowerColor @ 20% fan speed was 45* Idle and 60* load. Those temps are fine, but I would get artifacts/stuttering when running in Crossfire w/the MSI.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat bang for the buck

Pros: Great performance for the price. Beastly overclocker. Whisper quiet. HDMI and DVI.

Cons: Artifacting with original drivers. New drivers solved the problem. No extra's but I knew that when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: PC pitstop top 5% in the world for a song.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal, great card

Pros: Card stays much cooler and fan is much quieter than the 9 6 0 0 G T it replaced. Hugely noticeable difference. HDMI out with audio is very nice to connect to my LCD tv. I have never seen the card go over 64 degrees, and idles around 42 and 45 degrees. The card it replaced idled at 55 to 60 degrees and easily got into the 70s and 80s with any amount of work. When the temps on this card DO go up, it cools off very quickly once you back off on the usage.

Cons: Fan is definitely noisier as temps go up and fan speed increases, but what fan doesn't?

Other Thoughts: Heat sink on the Powercolor Radeon HD 4850 is prettier? Turned fan down to 30% idle (39% default) and card stays just as cool.
