2 out of 5 eggsFrom good... to bad... to worst...

Pros: Upgraded to this card from a 8600GT. It worked great at first. The card is quiet and runs cool on most settings. I have not been able to max it out.

Cons: After two months, I started to have artifacts all over my screen. Uninstalled and reinstalled latest drivers. Contacted HIS customer support for warranty. It took them 4 days to get back to me and refer me to Lexy Pacific for RMA. Contacted them a week ago, still have not heard back. This may not be the Lexus in your lineup but I still shelled out $135 for the card. And frankly, even at that price point, I expect at least timely responses. Way to take care of your customers, HIS.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is the best! However, I am starting to think that vendor selection could use a bit more attention, guys. This is the 3rd DOA or defect in the last 3 months. I never had that problem in the past.

5 out of 5 eggsMmm...

Pros: -A pretty decent card even by itself in Crossfire it plays Crysis full settings at 30fps(low end average) 1280x1024
-ATI's CCC(Catalyst Control Center) is nice and will overclock the gpu for you.

Cons: -Power hog! 600w psu or better if your planning to crossfire.
-CCC's overclock utility can be a little overzealous sometimes and cause artifacts to appear.

Other Thoughts: As a single card it does okay for most games. Surprisingly WoW is not very friendly with this card at 1280x1024 full settings(12fps Dalaran 20fps IC and 40+ in instance)
For $109 though its one of the better deals you can get for crossfire and sli performance

5 out of 5 eggsGood CrossFire Setup

Pros: Only requires one 6-pin power adapter making easier CrossFire setup.
Cooler works and isn't noisy, even when placed next to another card.
Clock rate can be turned up a minimum of 100MHz without a problem, and only a degree(C) or two of increase in temps.
Memory doesn't mind a similar increase with no problems.

Cons: None. The card performs better than advertised.

Other Thoughts: Haven't found one game that can push this card to 100% unless its pushing 200-300 FPS at 192x1200, which isn't necessary for playing a game. Putting two(2) of these in a Crossfire setup is awesome, with 2GB of VRAM and close to two Teraflops of performance. Only the primary card will sit between 30-70% usage, and the second card will sit idle. You can only use both cards when you are pushing 500FPS in newer DirectX 10 games, which is useless when the monitor is refreshing at 75Hz. But, having this much horsepower is amazing for Folding@Home and future-proofs the setup for at least a couple years. Definitely a good buy at this price.

5 out of 5 eggsReally like it

Pros: Very quiet, even when under strees for games. Not at all like the 'hairdryer' sound i my last card subjected me too during playing games.

Cons: I wish they didnt have 2-DVI outs, and instead only 1 DVI out and an S video out, since i have an older tv with S video, but no biggiee. Also, the memory doesnt seem to have heat sinks on them, but my temp monitoring indicates not needed (surprising, since the my last 2 video cards had them).

Other Thoughts: I get a new video card every 1 1/2 years, usually the best one for about $100. This is definatley the most performance gain ever for the 1 1/2 year time frame.

I wish ATI would expand their manual for the CCC settings and what some of the features really do.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: Worked great at first

Cons: Stopped working great after 2 weeks. Started getting blue screens of death ect. I cleared out all my old drivers w/ cleaning utilities and programs ect and still it would freeze me every time i tried to play a game for more than 10 minutes

Other Thoughts: Don't purchase unless your installing on a completely new system that hasn't seen any other drivers and hope it doesn't conflict with your hardware.

4 out of 5 eggsWell, it's ok

Pros: First off, I only have a 1280x1024 capable monitor and I was able to run prototype maxed out, both aa and af. Crysis was set on enthusiast on all options and was mostly playable in the resolution, so props to that. Did have some significant slowdowns tho. Also maxed out GRID and Fallout 3, but at the end of the day, this was all because of my lower resolution.

Cons: Started showing major artifacts 3 days after I got it. That kinda sucks, hence the missing egg.

Other Thoughts: DDR3 rather than DDR5, can get the HD 4870 1gb for $40 mores and is clocked higher as well.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd one much better!

Pros: Quiet, over twice as fast as my X1950XT (went from ~6050 in 3Dmark06 to ~13500). Should be good for a few years, then get another and X-Fire!

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: First card was DoA (see review below), RMA process was smooth and it took around a week from posting the dead card off to getting a replacement that works.
