GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA Series Radeon HD 6850 GV-R685OC-1GD 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 820MHz (Std. 775MHz)
  • 2 x DVI 1 x HDMI 1 x DisplayPort
  • 960 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 2.1 x16


Bought this as part of a HTPC super build. I was looking for something that could go easily from Blu-Ray to internet browsing to gaming. This card fits the bill nicely. Price vs. performance is pretty good.

Not the best card on the market, but more than sufficient for my needs (when it works).

Card runs at 33C when idle, but has hit 61C under stress test loads. Real world conditions will def. keep it on the cooler side of these temps.


Runs fine most of the time, but will occasionally black screen requiring a hard reset to get the computer running again.

It doesn't matter what I am doing, from surfing internet, to watching movies, to being RDPed into it. The computer will be running along just fine, when the display suddenly drops out. The fan speeds immediately ramp up to max speeds, and it requires a hard reset to be brought back online. I have been running speedfan, and the temps are reasonable (around 35-37C) when it happens. Doesn't seem to be temperature related, as I can run furmark for quite some time and it is stable.
