4 out of 5 eggsAlright

Pros: About four years of usage, just replaced it. Performed to spec throughout, was OCd and played most games at high settings.

Cons: However, had problems with the fan, which I noticed upon investigation is known for problems on this card. I bought a new fan and replaced it as I'll still use this card for other purposes. A fan should last longer than 4 years if not abused.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Monster

Pros: - A beast, nearly hits the top of the Windows Performance rating and has never had trouble with any game I've thrown at it
- Decent cooling for something so powerful
- Study card, doesn't bend at the PCI-E despite it's size because of the double screws in the back of the case

Cons: - First card had an issue with the fan cord inside the card hitting the blades, XFX promptly replaced it
- This card loves electricity, I think it's max load is like 300W or better so be ready to feed it. Even idles at high levels
- While the cooling is alright, this card will get pretty hot when you're letting it do it's thing

Other Thoughts: I've been using this card for 2 years and love it. I hope this thing never dies because I have no plans on replacing this guy anytime soon.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card, but some problems

Pros: Plays all my games that I want to play with no problems on a 1680x1050 monitor while staying relatively quiet.

Cons: However, every now and then my display artifacts out and my monitor turns on and off with minimal warning. This is very annoying, but thankfully remedies itself after restarting the computer.

Other Thoughts: Looking to eventually get the card replaced with something that won't glitch out so frequently.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Video Card

Pros: Runs most games in highest settings without any issues

Cons: Price came down right after i picked it up
Wish there was a 30 day price credit if your item goes on sale

Other Thoughts: Wanted to get two eventually, but they don't sell them anymore.

Mixing cards in crossfire is possible, but other sites list less performance than running two of the same card.

1 out of 5 eggs"LIfetime" is not lifetime

Pros: None.

Cons: I didn't buy this card, but I bought another one from XFX. 18 months later, it stopped working. Turns out, the capacitors blew on it. Blown caps is a sign of cheap components. Now I'm plodding through XFX's "support" to get it replaced.

Other Thoughts: Even though they keep saying "Lifetime warranty", the warranty is lifetime ONLY IF YOU REGISTER THE PRODUCT WITHIN 30 days! It says so in their TOS.

5 out of 5 eggsBought the Cheaper priced version

Pros: I bought The Cheaper Priced version for 10 bucks less and still was able to over clock to --- 940mhz and Memory at
(4600mhz) Both are pretty much the same card lol , But if your willing to spend 10 more bucks to feel safer is up to you either way these cards are freaking sweet. Can't wait to buy another 1 lol.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: None

5 out of 5 eggsGood so far

Pros: I am finding this card to be doing the job perfectly. I am still trying to overclock this card, currently core @ 900 MHz, memory @ 1150 (4600MHz). I set my fan speed to 55%, yes is it little noisy, but I game with a headset so I don't hear it at all. Idle temps are 35°C (100% fan I got it down to 32°C), while on load the highest 'I've seen' was 56°C.

Cons: The only con I can think of is really a simple of issue of getting a higher stable core clock. Some reviews boost they can get 1000MHz core clock, last time I tried a higher core clock like 950 Aion and L4D after about a hour to two hours will crash. Well not crash its more like windows 7 prevents it from happening which will shut down the driver and reboot it. Doing so will cause those games to close. I guess I can try going for 1000MHz with a higher fan speed... noise of the fan @ 100% is like a hair dryer.

Minor cons for the most part, thats if your picky about them.

Other Thoughts: Antec 900 Case
i7 920 2.66Ghz @ 3.06Ghz
Cooler Master V8 Heatsink
Asus P6T Mother Board
Kingston HyperX 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 @ 2043 MHz
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB
XFX Radeon HD 4890

This was my first build ever, wasn't too for me to do. Put a 64-bit Windows 7 Pro on it and it was done at that point, apart from my rookie attempts for overclocking. My old system was a P4 2.4Ghz paired an AGP GeForce 6800GT, I would get about 30 FPS on L4D on the lowest setting. With my current rig, er the lowest I got it to was 80 FPS on with everything on the highest you can put it. 80FPS was the low during an horde event mixed in with some fire. Averages at 120-180FPS, apparently the highest FPS you can get on L4D is 299 lol.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card!

Pros: This card is very easily overclockable!
I was able to get the core to 1000Mhz and run stable for quite some time and the memory is currently set at 4600Mhz!I am able to run crysis on high settings with no problems at all.I would recomend this card to anyone!And for only $200 is is still a great deal even though the 5800 series is out.

Cons: It gets really hot but I was able to keep it constantly overclocked and running at 45C.

5 out of 5 eggsgood card

Pros: This was a huge upgrade for me as I previously had a $50 9600 GSO that I bought when I was building my system to save money.
Everything maxes out easily, the drivers work great.

Cons: None really, if only these were DX11. These cards are at a great price point right now, if you live cutting edge, you will be living empty wallet.

Other Thoughts: Everyone complains how huge these cards are, well I have a antec 900 and I was shocked when I didn't have to do anything besides remove my old card and install this one. I had plenty of room and didn't have to touch my cable management or hard drive cage. I guess if you have a cheap case, you might not be able to fit it in.

Antec 900
Amd Phenom II x 4 940 deneb @ 3.8ghz
Corsair 650
8gb Fatality @ 800
XFX 4890 @ 950/1200
