2 out of 5 eggsOverpriced

Pros: Currently #3 in the fastest graphic cards list! A monster that will run any game at the highest resolution with the highest possible settings without breaking a sweat!

Cons: The most expensive card you could buy, makes no sense to get it. The HD 6990 and GTX 590 are both cheaper, faster and newer cards. If you pay more than six hundred for this you're overpaying.

Other Thoughts: I'm rating it 2stars based on it's nine hundred+ price at the moment. It's just ridiculously overpriced at the moment. Don't get fooled into buying this without doing a little research on how it compares to HD 6990 and GTX 590!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Customer Service!

Pros: Functioned well for about 2 years.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought the 2GB version of this card on first day it came out, but it went bad recently. I sent back to XFX with RMA, and XFX sent me a brand new one. XFX lifetime warranty and customer service is awesome and excellent. I'LL ALWAYS ONLY BUY XFX and ONLY RECOMMEND XFX! Thanks XFX.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Spade Card is Watching You!

Pros: Multi-player shooter fans beware. This card will own you. I'm not kidding. I installed this card in my computer and I decided to "test drive" it on Call Of Duty. As the game began to load The gun rose from the shipping box and hovered over my monitor. Like the melting metal guy in Terminator 2 my hand melted into the mouse. 9,000 kills, 4,600 exploding vehicles, 23 different games, and 63 hours later, I snapped out of my Gun card induced trance. All I could hear in my headset was sobbing opponents. The room smelled like urine , sweat, and cordite. As I lay on my bed the ceiling began to sound like a Huey. Thrup, thrup thrup thrup...as I slipped into unconsciousness...I heard Jim Morrison singing.

Cons: 1) I wet myself.
2) What I really wanted was the Graphics card with the Chainsaw. I only purchased the gun card because they were out of the Chainsaw version. Ticked me off because "Agriculture Tycoon: Midwestern Soybean farmer" Game only runs on the Chainsaw card. I was really looking forward to seeing the detailed graphics of my farm. I heard that the way the chaff flies off the combine blades looks amazing. This game barely runs on the gun card...well it did but I ended up killing my farm family and 475 of my cows...kind of lost it for a minute. That darn gun card.
3) Every time I sign in to play multi-player shooters the servers clear out.

Other Thoughts: You should probably purchase three or four extra gaming mice and a cast iron mouse pad. I ended up buying a new desk because I burned a hole in mine.

Don't fire this baby up when people are around, it may not end well. BTW, when I stopped playing the gun quit hovering and fell down and hit me in the head. You should probably wear a battle helmet and while your at it make a protective uniform. I made one out blue tarps and green Duct tape. I started wearing a gas mask to help with the urine smell as well. Talk about full immersion gaming. Oh, before I forget, you might want to pick up a box of depends.

5 out of 5 eggsDouble Life? L4D2 litterally

Pros: Double Lifetime Warranty

Cons: Only 2 Year parts and
Only two years Labor.

Other Thoughts: If you buy this it must detonate when the two year mark comes by, killing everyone.
Make certain you buy lots of insurance.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: DOUBLE LIFETIME WARRANTY!!! Because I am one of the few who live for several lifetimes I found this quite suitable for me, especially since I know this video card won't be out of date or considered low-end in 5 years like any other past supreme video card!

Cons: The guns fake, i feel ripped off from that, I lack the imagination to pretend it really is shooting bullets. Lost an egg for that!

Other Thoughts: Screw donating money to charity or paying your car note, your car may get repo'd but you'll have this video card there for at least 2 lifetimes!

4 out of 5 eggsthe beast

Pros: this card is simply amazing, it eats anything i throw at it alive.

Cons: i had this card for around 3 months when i started getting blank screen / no post. opened a support ticket with XFX and they replaced it, even if they did take their time about it. one egg off because no one likes to have things die on them.

Other Thoughts: when i bought it, this card was the best on the market, and still ranks pretty high im sure. when it comes to choices, this one is the pick of the litter.
