4 out of 5 eggs5 Years Running

Pros: Excellent performance and moderate fan speed / noise. Stock fans are generally equal to if not louder than this card. I used this card on its own for several years, overclocked when needed or just tinkering, without the chance of testing the benefits of crossfire capabilities.

Cons: A bit pricey when purchased. Without the proper attachments, depending on your computer case orientation, this card may only fit upside down without expansion bracers causing it to practically hang off the motherboard. At first this concerned me a great deal, but it turned out to be a minor aesthetic annoyance rather than any danger or performance complication. Might want to avoid the use of Cooler Master cases or Asus motherboards with this particular card if this concerns you.

Other Thoughts: This card was a hard buy for my first custom PC, but overall I'm satisfied. I don't understand those who have difficulties with this video card or what they're doing to make them fail, but mine has never had a problem. Dirt was the main cause of spontaneous shutdowns and BSOD, but anyone who owns / builds PCs knows this. Sucking out all the dirt from my video card (and the rest of the PC) easily extended the life of both exponentially. Plays every game on maximum/ultra settings to this day, without a foreseeable need to upgrade until next year.

2 out of 5 eggsNo thank you.

Pros: Ran great for a little while. Decent upgrade from my GTX260

Cons: Man where do I begin. I had multiple BSOD's with many different configurations of this card. I tried rolling back the drivers multiple times, switching to a different express slot, tried it in multiple computers and all had the same issue. BSODs occured 20 minutes to an hour into what ever game I played, and sometimes occurred while watching movies.

While playing I noted the card was very quite. Upon inspecting Catalyst Control Center I noted the fan speed was set to 50% and to automatically turn up the speed if the card ever hit 50c. While playing games with GPUZ in the background I noted that the fan controller wasn't doing this. I had to switch to manual mode every time and then crank up the fan speed myself. When you turn the fan up past 70%, It turns into a jet engine. By far it was the loudest video card I ever owned. Unfortunately 70% wasn't enough to stop the card from getting up to 70c, which would also typically cause a BSOD.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend, not that anyone should be buying this card at this date anyways.

5 out of 5 eggsFull of surprises

Pros: -Can still run many modern games maxed at 1080p, most that it can't will do fine on high (this is 2 and a half years after I got the card)
-Runs cool, never saw it go into dangerous temperature range

Cons: -not really a con since I got more than my money's worth, but slightly expensive when I got it. A 7850 can beat it at stock these days and won't hurt your wallet as much as this card did back when this was released

Other Thoughts: Surprised how amazing this XFX card is, i've heard some good things but far more horror stories with the brand. I wouldn't be afraid to go with an XFX card again, chose them at the time because of their warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsBack when XFX was good

Pros: Good performance in 2012-2013 games

Not too loud

Very reliable never had a problem with this card

Good temperatures

Over clocks somewhat well

BF3 with medium settings at 1080p 55 avg frames

metro 2033 on medium settings avg 45frames

Shogun Total war high/Medium settings 55-60fps

Heaven benchmark 3.0 with everything maxed out and tesselation on normal 25fps which is dman good for a 3 year old 300$ card.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Man i live my 5850 i have it for 3 years now and i have to say its been the best graphic card i have ever bought never had any issues with it. I have recently purchased a 7970 BE DD from XFX and had to return it a day later because hte manufacturer overclock was crashing every game it was just unstable. That inspired me to write a review about my good old 5850.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Card

Pros: None - unfortunately it took me almost a year to realize it's defective.

Cons: Had problems with the card since day one - always thinking it was memory timings or other voltage issues that was causing the blue screens or freezes of the PC. I had a friend that I game with tell me to check DirectX and I finally saw that it's only operating with 753MB instead of the full 1024MB ( 1 gig ). Tells me that the card never was operating at peak efficiency and likely the card was bad from the beginning. I'm now dealing with XFX to get some support but having to wait over a WEEK to get a response is horrible. At this rate I will not buy another XFX and possibly not go through Newegg for the bad card shipped out.

Manufacturer Response:

Please forward your support ticket number to so we can help get you up and running ASAP! Thanks

5 out of 5 eggsStill Going Strong

Pros: I've been running this card for almost a year now with absolutely no problems. It handles anything I throw at it. If I ever need more juice, I can crossfire.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsPoorly designed?

Pros: Amazing card. Even in mid-2011 it's still able to run any game thrown at it on high/ultra high.

Cons: I've had to RMA this card 3 times now (about to RMA it a 4th time) because I'm getting the grey screen of death (GSOD formally known as the BSOD), lines, flickering and system crashes/rebooting when attempting to play any games, and eventually will completely die on you.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned, this card suffers from the GSOD, and after some Googling, it seems to be a known issue with the 5xxx series. I'm sure many never encounter the problem, and I call them lucky. But for me and everyone else who have been suffering from this, it's irritating to the max.

I do love this card though, because when it works, it works GREAT! But having to RMA almost 4 cards now in a years time, just isn't worth it to me anymore. :[
And no, it's not a PSU problem as I have a 750w Antec and proper cooling in my case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Overclocked to 800/1150 on stock voltage using MSI afterburner. Flashed MSI 5870 BIOS, upped the voltage and running Furmark 16+ hours at 900/1200. Plays anything you can throw at it maxed out. BF:BC2 hits 70-80FPS at 1920x1200, full AA, no V-Sync. Scores 7.8/7.8 WEI.

Cons: Upper DVI port would make the monitor flicker and eventually stopped working. Flashed the MSI 5870 BIOS and the port works again. Card is deactivated so I will have to find a second for Crossfire elsewhere.

Other Thoughts: My rig:
CPU: Intel i5 2500K @ 4.7GHz
Mobo: ASRock Z68 Extreme4
Graphics Card: XFX 5850 @ 900/1200 (MSI 5870 BIOS) + EVGA 8800GTX for PhysX
Ram: 8GB G.Skill DDR3 2133MHz
Storage: OCZ Vertex 2 90GB + 3TB in RAID 0
Cooling: Zalman 9900 120mm
Power Supply: Corsair AX850
Case: Antec Nine Hundred
Monitor: Hanns-G HG281D 28"
Keyboard: Logitech G15
Mouse: Logitech MX Revolution

5 out of 5 eggsOne love

Pros: XFX is the best support I've ever received. They have given me and my friends no grief; Out of over a dozen cards with dozens of years supports, 2 returns have been flawlessly made with the returned card grading better on benchmarks than the ones sent off. I've had no problems with this card what-so-ever. Great product from a great company that severed my loyalty from nVidia with their simple and effective support.

Cons: Haven't tried Eyefinity or Crossfire - was hoping the card was still available.

Other Thoughts: Got a great deal at the time with an XFX power supply. No problems with the power supply either. For the people that are crying about having to register the cards for the lifetime warranty - try switching to PNY or some other company that require scanned proof of the purchase. Yeah... no thanks. Rebates work out great as long as you don't accidently throw away the UPC barcode like I did with the power supply - derp.

1 out of 5 eggsWha? No lifetime warranty? RMAing now

Pros: - Got this card 1/6 for around $150 after rebate.
- ATI outpaced Nvidia at this pricepoint
- no lack of DVI-VGA adaptors or power adaptors
- Support site seems good so far - heard back from them 2x within 12 hours to get my RMA

Cons: Unfortunately it glitched and caused lockups in BFBC2. Thought maybe it was something else and was lazy about troubleshooting because other valve games played with no problems. Sure enough this weekend the lockups turned into a permanent no video output failure. Trying the RMA process now for a 3 month old card (here comes a refurb!). Also when I registered it I noticed to get the "twice lifetime" warranty I needed to register within 30 days of purchase! Seems kinda shady for me...

Other Thoughts: First ATI card since the '90s
Now I will have to say "last ATI card was in '11" Not sure I want to try ATI again.
