5 out of 5 eggsPlays everything I want it to

Pros: XFX has amazing customer service. The fan in my XFX 6870 blew its bearing (stopped spinning, made a grinding noise) and XFX replaced it with this brand new 7850. It is significantly better and saved me the money of upgrading to a 660 or 7870 myself. The 7850 is perfectly adequate for even high settings in Crysis 3 at 1080p. I have not found the 1 gb of VRAM to be limiting at all. Even better the card is completely silent, much quieter than any other video card I've ever owned and seems to stay reasonably cool. OpenCL support is nice.

Cons: No CUDA or PhysX (obviously). The catalyst drivers are bloated and obnoxious.

Other Thoughts: I think one of the biggest myths around is that video card quality is measured by the size of their video ram. This card does a very good job busting that myth providing excellent performance with only a gig of VRAM.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome graphics card

Pros: Plays all games at maxed/nearly maxed settings at 1080p.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: 1 GB video memory is not really a limitation. (at least at 1080p). You will have to spend more to play at 1440p resolutions.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: extremely fast
GREAT bang for your buck
runs every game I throw at it (1920x1080 is flawless)

Cons: Only 1GB of memory, kinda bad for eye-finity and Huge world games, but still runs stuff like Skyrim pretty smoothly

Other Thoughts: Considering crossfiring in the future

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Someone was complaining about the cooling? Looks beefy enough to me. And the cowling is solid brushed aluminum, what else do you want at this price? Runs Borderlands, Fallout 3, Fallout:New Vegas, Civ V and Guild wars II at full settings. Civ V still has some screen loading issues mid game, but that's more of a CPU thing I think.

Cons: Not a 7870?

Other Thoughts: Missed out on the Far Cry III deal. Really guys? Really disappointed. Almost bought the 7770 so I could get that game free. The chance to have a superior card won out though. Oh well....

4 out of 5 eggsGood card, but don't expect much VGA use.

Pros: Solid Performer
Good for crossfire

Cons: VRAM is on the low side
Only one output converts to VGA.

Other Thoughts: So this will by no means be the average use case, but in case anyone else makes my mistake:

I have a set of four VGA monitors that I wanted to chain together to get a surround effect. I had bought two of these for crossfire, and done some simple math in my head when I realized that there were four DVI outputs, and bought 4 DVI to VGA converters. Much to my surprise, then after research, disappointment, I discovered the following:

1.Only one output may be used to convert to VGA on each card
2. You can only use the outputs of one card if you want to crossfire.

So essentially I'm stuck at 2 monitors now instead of 4, and only 1 if I want to utilize crossfire. Far from my imagined dream workstation. You can buy what are called "active adapters" to get the other outputs to convert from digital to analog signal, but those are rather expensive and frankly cost roughly as much as the monitors themselves did.

All of this ranting, and I still give it 4 stars because if does what is was designed to do well. I just wish that there would have been documentation somewhere to point this out to me beforehand, or at least that it would have been more apparent.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for the money on 1080P or less

Pros: Performs as it should low power consumption

Cons: No Sound over DVI. I have been using my Asus TOP 4850 for awhile and it passed sound like it should. I have a 15' DVI to DMI cable that passes sound to my TV w/o adapter.

I just upgraded to z77 Asroxk Extreme 4 MOBO and swapped the TV to the onboard video and bam sound works.

From looking around it seems only some cards pass sound, but on this one you would think having 2 DVI and only 1 HDMI it would pass sound through DVI but does not

Good luck finding reviews of which cards actually do pass sound through DVI, I found 1 mention of an Asus 7850 that was supposed to pass sound

Other Thoughts: Overall works great taking 1 star away due to not passing sound over DVI. Actually if I did not upgrade and have onboard video I would be more upset and remove 2 stars since I would have to buy a 15' HDMI cable to get sound to my TV
