4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Pros:
Very Fast Card- Even without the proper drivers all games can run at max settings ( I only have a 1680x1050 res monitor)
Good Price

Cons: Cons:
Drivers
Screen Flicker on some games
Some really odd issues

Other Thoughts: Comments/Concerns:
So the story begins when I got the card. It came OEM(aka no drivers/directions), which could be a problem for some people. I was undaunted by this and went to the ATI website looked up the card and downloaded the driver pack. No issues there.
I popped out my old card (ATI 4870 X2- the fan had died on it, but I'd owned it for a long time so not gana say that was anyone's fault) and the new card fit in without any issues. It is large but that's why we buy big cases... right?? No issues there.
Then I booted up and tried to install the driver pack. The card was working fine at this point. Then as part of the install i re-booted. I got terrible screen tearing/flickering at this point (ATI drivers). I tried a re-boot to see if that would fix it, no dice. So I uninstalled the drivers, rebooted to clean the ram of any-lingering driver stuff, and tried again. I got the same issue tons of screen tearing/flickering. This is where I got disappointed and gave up on the ATI drivers, uninstalled them and went with the windows defaults.
The good news is that the card runs very well on the default drivers.
The bad news is you get none of the extra features that the ATI drivers offer.

I've also had a few other issues like if the windows turns the monitor off it won't restart the graphics unless you have a background app running (speed-fan works nicely to circumvent this little issue).
Also in League of Legends I get a v-sync issue every once in a while (5-10 mins I'd guess??), it's distracting but not debilitating. So other games may have issues with the windows drivers.

I hope this helps people out!
