PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 DirectX 11 AX7850 2GBD5-2DHE/OC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 910MHz
  • 1 x DVI-D 1 x DVI-I 1 x HDMI 2 x Mini DisplayPort
  • 1024 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 2.1

Pros:

-Graphics run on high settings and looks great on modern games like Skyrim, Tomb Raider and DayZ
-Can mine coins at around 300Kh/s
-Reasonable price with rebate (check is supposed to be sent, not some stupid debit card)

Cons:

-The fan makes an irritating rattling noise. It seems loose, lubricating helps a little. Pressing on the center makes it silent but doesn't solve the problem.

-Getting a lot of artifacts, even on the desktop! Did some research and found out that it is a common problem with the 7850. Browsing Firefox also causes artifacts, but Chrome works fine. Consensus says that it may be a driver issue. There are still artifacts even with the latest drivers installed directly from AMD's website. I am using stock settings without any overclocking.

-PowerColor's support page is just a list of FAQs. Support seems non-existant. Attempting to contact them directly about the fan issue.

Other Thoughts:

The fan noise and artifacts left a feeling of disappointment for what could have been the best bang for the buck graphics card.
