5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: -Runs BF3 at Ultra with 4xmsaa 35-45FPS (1080p)
-Runs run CrysisWarhead at enthusiasm with 8xaa 25-35FPS (1080p)
-Runs Skyrim at ultra with 8xaa 45-60FPS (1080P)
-Nice cooling

Cons: -Huge, but I was expecting it to be like that.
-Made for multiple screens because it won't lose FPS with 3way eyefinity while playing BF3, so I really don't know why I can't get more FPS off one 1080p monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfied

Pros: Runs cooler than I expect, Runs quieter than I expected, Plays nearly every game at maximum possible settings (I don't tolerate any lag, if I see that frame rate drop even the slightest, I turn the settings down).

Cons: I hate dinging eggs for things that aren't the manufacturer fault, but for a while I had two of these in crossfire and it was completely unusable because of the drivers. I also had major driver issues for one card up until the most recent update (11.11). The card also feels pretty flimsy, when it's sitting in my case the end of it hangs down enough to rest on my one of my sata cords (which occasionally hits the fans making a pretty loud noise).

Other Thoughts: Overall a solid card, If it wasn't for all of the problems I had with the drivers I'd be very happy.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: * Blazingly fast. I haven't yet found something to make two of these slow down.
* Large, but not too large-- they don't protrude over the end of an ATX motherboard (but they do come right up to it).
* Efficient cooling.

Cons: * Dinged an egg because the heat pipes at the front end of the card interfere with the placement of the second Crossfire bridge. It still fits, but it's pressed rather tightly against the bridge, and I'm not sure if that's good for long-term durability.
* Fans get loud when the card heats up.
* Fans dump air back into the case, opposite the flow direction of most air-cooled cases (downward, assuming your intakes are at the front and you're exhausting through the top and back).

Other Thoughts: With two of them, core temperatures under load reach about 65-67C in a fairly well-ventilated case.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

Pros: Haven't had any problems with it. Good upgrade from a Radeon 4870.

Cons: Fans can become audible when gaming, but that is to be expected from a card like this. I usually wear headphones so I don't hear it anyway.

Other Thoughts: I have a Core 2 Duo E8500 so I don't have the hardware to really push this card to the limit, but it made a great improvement over my Radeon 4870 (512 meg).
