4 out of 5 eggsBeen doing fine

Pros: Plays any game I throw at it on the highest settings without issue

Cons: Drivers can be a mess at times, I've had to downgrade at times, and despite the amount of ports it has, it has trouble outputting to more than 2 monitors at a time

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm quite happy with it, it's been a tad fiddly, but generally has served its' purpose well. Just be prepared to do some driver-dancing.

Also, I hooked up 3 monitors (2 DVI, 1 HDMI), and it can't handle displaying to all 3 at the same time. It's not too huge of a deal for me since I never "really" need all 3 at once, but it's a tad bit of a pain to wait for the PC to pick up the third monitor, disable the 2nd, and display everything properly as I juggle them.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is the best card to get right now if your budget is around the $200 area. This card has given me the best quality and performance I ever got in a graphics card. It looks beautiful, it plays all games at high to ultra settings with no problems at 1080p. The temps are quite low and the fans are not as noisy as my 460GTX but you can still hear them. If you are into the mid range graphics cards, then get this one. Just one thing I should mention(Look at cons)

Cons: The drivers...

Oh how troublesome it was to get this card to work properly. I had to uninstall and reinstall the drivers several times just so it won't blue screen randomly anymore. It will just BSOD even if you aren't doing anything, and if you're gaming, it will randomly freeze and turn into a grey screen with black lines. I was on the thought of RMA'ing the card, but after a quick uninstall and reinstall of the drivers, the problems disappeared. Only real con now, is that you can't overclock this card very well, it will sometimes crash when you are playing a game. But you will only gain about 5 more FPS, so it's not really worth the trouble.

Other Thoughts: For the money, get it, even if the drivers are an issue, they should go away after several reinstalls of the drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsYay!

Pros: - Quiet
- Not a power hog
- Runs cool
- Smaller card than the Nvidia equivalent
- Good performance

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: Having only bought NVIDIA in the past I wanted another, but due to mid-tower space constraints by 1" (ARGG!) I ended up settling for my first ATI card....and I couldn't be happier!

Plays games great. Runs smoothly at maximum settings with whatever I've thrown at it. Heck, its even working great under Linux. Who knew!

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Difference

Pros: - Runs Amazingly Well
- Fan makes it run cool - Under full load, I haven't seen it get past 65 c.
- Runs Guild Wars 2 at all max settings at an average of 70+ FPS. Deus Ex on Max never leaves 60 FPS.
- Fan runs like a champ.

Cons: - Tricky installation.
- I've seen a shadow or so flicker here and there. May be the driver to be honest, so this isn't really a con.

Other Thoughts: - CD that came with it was almost useless. Pop it in, refused to recognized card. Do yourself a favor and just download the drivers from AMD themselves. Faster, up to date, and less frustrating.
- My friend and I both purchased these cards. He had the same CD problem, but his card runs at exactly the same specs as mine. Fantastic cards.
- This was the first Video Card I had purchased in... 4 or 5 years. What a difference.
- Fan is mostly quiet. If you put it up to 100%... Expect some noise, obviously.
- The 65 c I hit was at 50% fan speed power. I'm assuming that this is a good temperature, as I read that most cards can take up to 100 c or more.
- Lastly, the card is a bit bulky, as many modern graphics cards today are. Make sure your case can fit it!! Mine came about half an inch from hitting the drive bay.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA

Pros: It worked flawlessly. That is, when it was on low-mid load. Any higher and....

Cons: Graphic failure. Skyrim on ultra no mods would crash at load screen. Verified game cache and re-installed to make sure it wasn't the game. Popped in my old 6870 and it worked fine. Will update once RMA comes back.

5 out of 5 eggsBAM!

Pros: Most powerful card I've got to play with to date. Love it. Handles everything I've thrown at it and asks for more.
Battlefield 3, 1920x1080 max like butter
Skyrim on ultra, no prob
Deus Ex HR - free and easy
WoW - WOW!
Silent when not under load, especially with Virtu in i-Mode. I'll throw work at it just to make sure it didn't break.
APP works for video transcoding. Not as fast of Quick Sync, of course, but works nonetheless.
Runs cool, too
Big Pro: HDMI connection in the MIDDLE, not the side like every other card I've had! Now I don't have to Frankenstein my DVI-HDMI adapter with a bunch of unnecessary adapters/cables. Of course, now I want a DP-connected monitor...

Cons: Not so much a con, but an annoyance: Virtu and CCC don't get along very well. When running in i-Mode, on Windows startup, CCC will nag about how Intel's graphics aren't supported. Does not happen when plugged directly through the card, though. Hasn't caused any crashes or blue-screens, so I'm not knocking an egg off.

Other Thoughts: ASRock Z77 Pro4-M
Intel Xeon E3-1235

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This card is exactly what I needed. I am not much into gaming and going from a HD 3650 to this card is making me rethink gaming.

Cons: the moment

Other Thoughts: This is not a con on the card, but it was suppose to come with Dues Ex...I have never seen it yet

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good!

Pros: Runs just about all my games on the highest settings with either 60 fps or more for older games or if not, then nothing lower than 30, unless you have V sync on.

Card runs quiet, have not heard any noise from it so far.

Its quite fast.

Cons: It's not more powerful? haha, its great for the price.

Other Thoughts: Games I'm currently running on it are either new or semi-new. Just bought Crysis collection on Sale off Steam and Crysis 1 and Warhead at highest settings with great framerates. Crysis 2 I have not tested it well yet, but I believe it can run on high with good framerates as well.

Also tried demos for Sleeping Dogs (new game) and Batman Arkham City and both run great on high settings.

Also I'm running these games on the cards stock settings, have not overclocked yet.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the Card

Pros: Fast, quiet and an overall good looking card.
Also had a good price, just sad I missed out on a free game offer.

Cons: Be aware of the power usage of this card before you buy it. You need 2 separate 6 pin power cords to be able to fully power the card. Now, I'm not saying that you can't use less power and get away with it, but that is what is recommended.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a very impressive card. If you read through all of the specs, then you will be fine. This card has easily handled anything that I have thrown at it (and that is without any overclocking).

4 out of 5 eggsGood card but little noisy

Pros: Fast enough for what I do with it. Solid construction.

Cons: Card needs to have HDMI audio disabled in my case otherwise OS freaks out. Had to do it on my 4850 as well (Vista 64 bit). Fan is designed incorrectly. It has a lot of airflow loss before it even hits the coolers. That is why it runs warmer and noisier than it would if done correctly.

Other Thoughts: Sure enough prices are dropping on 7870s - probably would buy that if given another choice, but this card is sufficient for my needs.
