4 out of 5 eggsWorked well for a while

Pros: After buying the "active dongle" needed for multiple screens it worked great. I could switch screens and do whatever I needed to do either with graphics or spreadsheets.

Cons: The multi monitor function suddenly failed about two weeks ago. I could only use one monitor. Using three monitors is the reason I bought the card.

Other Thoughts: I know two years is an eternity in the computer world. However I expect a device to continue to do what it was bought to do for some time after the initial burn in period failures.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this card

Pros: - Runs every game you throw at it
Crysis, Very High spec, 1680x1050 4xAA, keeps 30FPS. With some tweaking I can get 10-20 more fps and the game still looks beautiful.
BC2 all maxed out, no problem, Online gaming, no problem whatsoever.
Total War Shogun 2: not a problem, all maxed out.
- Free game: total war shogun 2 =]
- $30 MIR... still waiting though
- Looks nice
- What other "pros", is the best video card I've owned and performs nicely. Scores 7.5 on windows exp index. I haven't test on 3D design apps, just games, and I have zero complains. Make sure you try newer games for your testing, Crysis is just old... yes, it's a beautiful game and was a breakthrough, but it was badly designed performance-wise. BC2 has much better graphics, details, sound, etc, and I can run BC2 all maxed out without a glitch, whereas Crysis has hiccups on some locations.
- DirectX 11 baby!
- Supports crossfire, and 3 displays, yeah!

Cons: - Size(?) Why do they keep doing these bigger and bigger? Shouldn't they make them smaller, isn't that how technology should be? And not just that, it also requires 2xPCI express power connectors (that's the equivalent to 4 regular Molex connectors aprox) I don't get it, CPUs keep getting faster, and yet retain same size or even smaller, and power consumption has taken some big leaps recently. Not the same for GPUs. I mean, you have to buy a case for your graphics card, that's the only question you ask yourself when you are looking for a case "what graphics card I'm going to buy" and go from there, otherwise you are doomed. And yet, this is not the biggest card out there, heck, is not even on the top 10 =]
- Runs hot. Heavy gaming reaches 80C... I've read some reviews and tech notes, and seems to be within factory specs. Need to fiddle with the fan settings.
- Only one fan. Should have two IMO.

Other Thoughts: I think it just got discontinued :(
XFX is probably one of the best manufacturers for video cards, and the packaging is also top notch! Lifetime warranty, can't find that everywhere.
I was thinking on getting a second one someday, but I think the whole 5xxx series is getting discontinued. In order to use crossfire, both cards must be of the same series, 58xxx, can't mix a 58xx with 68xx as far as I know.
Case: Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition (it fit, barely, one more inch and I would've had problems connecting the power)

4 out of 5 eggsRuns hot, works fine

Pros: Card looks really nice and well built. What you would expect from ATI. Only games I've played with it so far are

- Battlefield 2 (not Bad Company)= Destroys it! all max
- Alone in the Dark= Destroys it! all max
- Arma2 (original and Operation Arrowhead)= It can run it ok, but not maxed out. game still looks fine though.

-It's got nice specs for the money (clock speeds, etc...)

Cons: It will run at the 80's C range if you set fan speeds to auto, which I think is really hot, but I don't know if that is just the way it was designed to run at. It only has one fan and it could really use another one to help with cooling. If you turn manual fan speed on and set to about 48% (idles at 23%, i think) it will not go past 60C under heavy gaming, but it gets a bit loud. It will be annoying at first but you get used to it.
It is a very large card, but all good cards are this size nowadays. It uses two power connectors.

Other Thoughts: For the price it is a pretty decent card, but i should've paid a little more for a better card.

5 out of 5 eggsVideo Card

Pros: Good Video card. Do all I want to it. I am planing to get a second one in some time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I love that XFX has a life time warranty on a lot of their video cards. Just dont forget to register it.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Card-both performance and size

Pros: Well, been testing games on this thing, and it runs 'em all like a beast. I was raging around with 1000 dudes on a battlefield at once on Mound&Blade: Warband, which was pretty cool--never thought I'd see the day.

Just Cause 2, the demo, runs average 60fps.. another beauty, considering before, I was coming from an ATi HD 4350.. which.. could barely squeak out 21 while staring at the ground.. Worms Armageddon.. anybody..? Anywhooo

Yeah, rambling. This is a great card. Now I GTFO [of the pros]

Cons: I was a stupid idiot, and bought this card the last day of the rebate in April, so I paid square (ugh, stupid stupid me..).

Other Thoughts: Through the process of buying this, I learned that my PSU is one of those "REPLACE IT NOW" power supplies, apparently by Okia. Although I have yet to get the new 600watt PSU, the 450 Okia is holding its own (although I'm still flippin scared of it).

Regardless, this thing is pretty monster. My case is cheap and I had to break part of the stupid little card plate thing in the back, but regardless, all's fine. Also, this card is 3mm away from being too big (almost jamming into the hard drive bays).

As for final words, the 4-pin Molex adapters that came with this card work great [for now, until that new PSU etc.], and everything.. is as it should be!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Loving this card. Mostly. Final Fantasy XIV looks great, Shogun 2 (which came with the card) set itself to Ultra settings, looks beautiful and runs perfectly.

Cons: Unsatisfactory Linux support. Loud fan. One egg docked for each.

Other Thoughts: I went ATI/AMD solely because I'd been hearing good things about their recent Linux support. With Open Source drivers my mouse cursor never appeared, and with the proprietary drivers I get some flickering and a line at the top of my screen. I'm very, very disappointed and will absolutely not be recommending this for Linux use.

This is isn't a mark against XFX, however, as the card itself works great.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: This is great card for my first full computer build. The card supports all the latest games at the highest graphic settings at pretty high resolutions. Fan is not loud at all for me, unlike what others have said, at full load of games like bfbc2, cod4, l4d2, and mafia 2 at all the highest settings. Card stays pretty cool.

Cons: The first thing I noticed about this card is that it is massive for mid range. I have a Cooler Master Elite Case and it fits perfectly, but it does hog up a large portion of the case and interferes with non-modular cable management. It also requires dual 6 pin PCIe connectors, so check you PSU.

The majour con that I have noticed is lines in my displays, as others have noted. I am running a motley crew of monitors at completely different resolutions and different refresh rates. This may be the cause for the lines as I have been reading reviews pointing out this issue. In games, every now and then I'll notice a couple of lines in high speed situations. It's noticeable, but I'm sensitive to these sort of things. And I've tried OC the card, but it doesn't work well with my display set up; jagged lines everywhere in motion. If you're using one display or same resolution Eyefinity, you shoud be fine.

Other Thoughts: I've had years on experience fixing, building, and manging computers with Window's and all the majour software, so I know what I'm talking about. This was my first full computer build, but I've been replacing every part of a computer, both my own and all the one's at the college I work at, for years now. I'm not just some game savy kid who thinks he knows everything cause he built a computer and plays COD.

The card is also a little on the expensive side for those on a budget, like I was. What I suggest is to get the next card down, 5770, and use the extra money to get a good MoBo, Crossfire compatible, and just buy another 5770 later down the road if money is tight.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: This is a great card. It'll give any gamer the bang for their buck. Runs DX11 games (what few there are at the moment) Flawlessly and at high FPS on Maxed out settings. Runs dual screens okay, but see cons about Overclocking.

I bought this last year when it had the AVP deal, and it hasn't come to far down in price from what I paid for it. ($162). Its a great deal.

If you aren't a gamer but like to watch movies this card delivers with no fuss at all. I have 8GB of memory and I can run most newer games and a movie at the same time. Flawless.

Cons: If you run more than one monitor with this card, make sure they all can do the same resolutions because if you want to overclock this card screen res's need to be matched or you'll experience some annoying lines and flickering on at least one of your monitors.

It also runs a little hot if you don't set the fan speed to at least 60% while playing games. You shouldn't have to push the fan speed higher unless you're playing in a hot environment. The fan gets noticeably louder at increased fan speeds.

Might be a glitch with my card but not turning on the manual fan control the fan never kicked up to cool the card down, it was pegging at temps around 78c. Not healthy for the card at all.

Other Thoughts: XFX has lifetime warranty for most of their products, and I haven't ever had to use it. Solid card for what you pay.

Despite some of the cons, none are worth docking an egg for. Its a great piece of hardware for any rig.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: Runs two 20" HD monitors without a hitch
Dead quiet unless under high load
legitimate rebate only took 6 weeks just as stated

Cons: Really loud fan when gaming (under heavy load)

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if this is a problem with the card or the driver but, when playing embedded videos on the net my screens flicker. I have the most current driver for Win7 64-bit and the latest flash player from Adobe. In games everything works flawlessly. Playing movies in WMP is perfect. Only playing embedded videos on sites like youtube produce any flicker.

Overall, I am very pleased with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a lot of card!

Pros: Made for panoramic 3D. Upgraded from Radeon 4830. More colorful, more depth perception resulting in faster gaming speed.Smooth,even spread of colors in internet use. Internet videos, news feeds, etc. all great. DVD's are what you would expect from a 5830. I'm running XP Home with a 6000+ with max mem for XP. I would like to read what someone who is running Win 7 with 16Gz of mem has to say. You can tell that it is a big card made for a big case as it uses 12 pin power. Uses same ATI drivers as 4830(ATI Catalyst)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Mine came with $30.00 rebate and a free game! BTW if card does not work try using another PCI slot.
