5 out of 5 eggsBulletproof Card!

Pros: Had this card for 2.5 years and it played every single game on either ultra or a mix of ultra and high settings! Including games as Arma 3, X-Rebirth (after optimization patches lol)
Shadow of Mordor, and the list can go on and on for what I actually played!!!
The fan was pretty quite and never had any heat issues at all. The card never failed me. I sold the card because I upgraded to a newer card because I had some extra cash and like having the nice new stuff:)

Cons: For the price, Absolutely nothing!
My only complaint, is not with this card, but with the gaming industry at the moment. Many games are being optimized for Nvidia, and you can feel left out at time with new releases or game engine optimization issues.
World of Warplanes ran HORRIFIC until after launch for all AMD users, X-Rebirth was the same. That is the only complaint, and it will more than likely change in a few years as it usually does back to amd.

Other Thoughts: Anyone looking to buy a fantastic card that does not want to spend a bunch of money should look into one of these. This card WILL run every game that comes out in the next 2 to 3 years minimal. It SHOULD run all of those games on ultra to high for the next year, 2 to 3 years down the road it will more than likely be a mix of high to medium for most games with some being on ultra. It will depend on the game.
I'm just saying this because I have been pc gaming for the last 15 years.

2 out of 5 eggsCaught Fire

Pros: - Good Graphics Card
- Reasonably Quiet Fan
- Stayed at Normal Temps
- No incompatibilities
- It can be used as a fan now

Cons: - Died
- Not completely worth the price

Other Thoughts: Had this card for about a year, never overclocked the card. I installed a new graphics driver on Sunday, as my games were glitching with my mouse movement, this was fixed by that. On Tuesday, about 1 hour into playing the game, the computer shut off.

I went to turn the computer on and it would not turn on. I unplugged the computer, waited for like 5 minutes, plugged it back in and opened the case, turned the power on, and saw this huge orange glow from the graphics card area near the Input Ports. The computer shut off again, and this time with an electrical smell.

Turns out a Power Distributor on it blew, and had a hole on the top of the distributor and the side as well. The card will no longer function. However, it was not a bad card. The only thing on it that works is the fan.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I tested the card through the windows experience index, and it ran at 7.9 which was pretty sweet. It also came with three games when I bought it - another plus. It runs very cool considering there's just one fan. I'm very impressed with the speed to $ ratio.

Cons: It's not gonna win any beauty pageants, but who's gonna see it?
Also, only one fan, but it's been running cool thus far so I'm not concerned.

Other Thoughts: This card is great because it fills that gap between $150-180 cards and $300+ cards. The performance functions much closer to the cards 100 dollars pricier, than it does to cards less expensive.

Apple is using these cards (the radeon hd 7850) in their new rigs (supposedly, as their OS X mountain lion update beta comes with the drivers for it) so you can expect that these cards will remain relevant for a pretty long time.

3 out of 5 eggsXFX core hd7850

Pros: Great price, haven't tested it with many games but many other people here can atest to it being able to run demanding games

Cons: Upon startup, that is right when the windows desktop appears, a high pitched sound eminates from the machine. This sound wasn't present when i still had my 9800gt installed. The sound does go away after roughly 5-10 minutes. I am unsure if this is normal, I have never owned a 'higher performance' gpu and have heard of the mosquito sounds when playing games that can be normal?

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Dan, sometimes we refer to such noise as "coil whine." It can be caused by simply being worn in, lack of power, over use, under-heating, etc. It should be gone by the time you receive this message, but if for whatever reason it is still giving you an issue, we would be more than happy to replace it for you. please contact us at or simply open a ticket at

5 out of 5 eggsLoving it!

Pros: This is what I expect from XFX, who has a good rep for making video cards! Did a few benchmarking on games such as Battlefield 3, Minecraft (Mods added), Medal of Honor: Warfighter etc. All of them averages around 50-60 fps when not recording and if you set the graphics settings to its highest

Cons: So far none!

2 out of 5 eggsMisleading Spec and photo

Pros: Let you know when I actually install a card.

Cons: The card I received doesn't match the spec or photo. All the model numbers are correct though.
*edit* I see newegg has since taken the picture down. I'll keep them guessing on the incorrect spec.

Other Thoughts: Have always been a big fan of XFX and newegg so I'm hoping for a quick solution.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Ajax, were sorry for the confusion. If you have any remaining issues with the card, please contact us so we can resolve this for you immediately.

5 out of 5 eggsTHE BEST!

Pros: WEI- 7.9
Blazing Fast!
Plays Bf3 on Ultra settings on a AMD 955 BE Without any signs of lag!
Small Gfx card to fit smaller cases
Purchased at 189.99$ when on discount

Cons: Zero, Everything is perfect as of now!
(Will update in future if a "con" appears with the card)

Other Thoughts: Great card, GPU Benchmarks shows the card is in the top 20's of highest rated cards. For the price i can't see why you shouldn't buy it. Also, life time warranty just shows you XFX has faith in the card to last you a life time.

Fits perfectly in the NZXT GAMMA case.

Overall, 5/5 a must have for any PC!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: *the card i purchased is indeed the "Core" edition but has 1xdvi 1xdvi, dual link, 1 hdmi 2x display port*
(upgraded from an XFX HD 5770)
Plays everything you could want to play. I don't play the BF series so i can't speak to that but works great on a fresh install of windows 8. can play borderlands 2 and guildwars 2 at the same time on different monitors. plays skyrim on high settings and gets great fps.

IIRC it idles at 51C and runs on games about 62C or so while in game.

the CCC does have overdrive where you can OC this card and manually control the fan but in most cases i don't think that is necessary + it can void the warranty.

if this card gets any cheaper im likely buy another one.

after buying just take the time to register your card with XFX. after having shopped for every AMD card plus every manufacturer i settled on this one because of the quality/the price + the XFX warranty. the only other warranty that comes close is visontek, but the reviews for that particular series of card was horrible.

Cons: as is with most AMD cards, the issues is the drivers. the hardware especially with XFX is perfect. i have never had an XFX problem ever. in windows seven i was having some issues with ACR slowing down and really lagging and lots of flickering in Skyrim. after countless hours of trying every available drive + even beta drivers at different times i finally concluded it was time to upgrade to windows 8 (fresh install). that has solved 99.9% of my problems. in the open world of skyrim it will flicker every now and then but its really, really rare. im not positive but i think the problems may have been with display fusion but as i have already installed windows 8 i can't go back and test that but the flickering still happens sometimes so i have to concluded it might be the rest of my hardware.

- went on sale about two weeks after i bought it. now comes with three free games.

Other Thoughts: my system
core 2 quad 2.4
asus Pq5 PRO mobo
8gigs pc6400
xfx 7850 2 gig
corsair 800watt psu
