5 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: It runs my 42" monitor really well and It doesn't drag. It does not run hot and it Was easy to install.

Cons: Was a little big. Also it is a power hog. The Fan is really loud. All cards of this size are though so that is to be expected.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Choice

Pros: Quite fast, a huge performance leap over my aging 8800GTS 640MB I bought almost 2 years ago. If you play games at 1920x1080 this is for you.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Running this with
Q6600@3.0
Gigabyte p43 motherboard
8GB DDR2 Memory
Vista 64

COD4+CODW@W run at max settings with max AA at 1920x1080 with no less than 60FPS. WoW runs at 1920x1080 perfect also. Looks like this will be the last card I buy for a while.

Cons: none...

Other Thoughts: Card is Rather big, but when thrown into my first gamer build, it really isnt a problem.

5 out of 5 eggsATI'm lovin it!!

Pros: This card is an absolute beauty to behold, and that was just taking it out of the box. After installing it booted right up and driver installation was a breeze considering ATI's reputation for writing horrible drivers. My temp's according to everest were idling in the low 30's and in the mid 50's at full load, so for all the people who say these run hot, I suggest you not skimp on your computer case. I'm not saying everyone does, but I'm sure alot of people buy these cards and throw them in their OEM HP, Dell, or whatever cases with little to no fans for airflow and heat dissipation. I bought the NZXT Tempest with 4 120mm's & 2 140mm,s and it was worth every penny of the $100 spent. So basically if you have enough money to purchase this card then why not spend a little more to help increase the cards longevity. Sorry for the longwinded speech, but it had to be said.

Cons: None, this is the closest thing to magic that I've seen, love it!

Other Thoughts: Crysis is not a good game to judge the power of one's rig. Hell, NASA computers could'nt achieve 60fps on that poorly coded mess. Once again, sorry, but Crysis SUCKS!

4 out of 5 eggsXFX (as usual) is great

Pros: Fast and Clear. Worked strait out of the box. Got this card because I knew it would work Adding AA doesn't bog this card down.... If you have a 26" screen, this is the card you need. Liked the added game...quirky but fun.

Cons: Catalyst software is getting better.....not great, but getting better. Power requirements are alittle high and fan is loud when it is running over 40%. Big doublewide card.....like putting a brick in your box.

Other Thoughts: I knew it would work, XFX makes quality cards.
(had to RMA a saphire card that was DOA....very frustrating even though Newegg was great at RMA)

5 out of 5 eggsBack to ATI

Pros: fast, powerful, and silent card. allows me to run my games full settings at 1680X1050 with anti aliasing set to the max on almost all games. picture quality is great with High Def

Cons: Huge card, uses two pci-e connectors, and dual view set up isn't as good as Nvidia's (I use a 20 inch monitor and a 26 LCD TV with HDMI)

Other Thoughts: second XFX card I've bought an this one works out of the box, first was a 8800gt and was defective that got RMAed and replaced it with a evga 8800gt. this is the 4th ATI gpu I've owned to date. over all I'm impressed with the GDDR5 memory.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Increadible card, runs very cool even without the fan speed adjusted. Came as advertised. Moved up from a 3870x2 from msi, huge boost in preformance. Had xfx cards before and happy to have one again. Life time warranty!

Cons: none so far, and not expecting any.

Other Thoughts: couldnt be more happy at the moment, THX NEWEGG AND XFX!!!!!! :)
