This card did not play saints row III worth a darn, my 4850 did better on med setting. I assume drivers are to blame
You can NOT use the drivers on the AMD site for the 4800 series, they will not work and the card will show up as generic. I was forced to use the CD for drivers. I did not give the 7xxx drivers a go, just the 7800 series drivers.
This card played games better than it would run normal windows operations. Chrome made it bluescreen twice. I did not have any bluescreens in games. I played at least 2 hours.
MSI no case badge!!!!!
I'm really irritated at Newegg, I ordered this card friday 3-16 with overnight shipping and rush processing. I just received it today 3-20-12. Usually new egg is faster.
All and all this card seems solid, just need to wait for driver optimization. No reason to give this card a bad review as most cards have that issue at launch.
