Pros: When it works, I get great frame rates and while fairly noisy, it stays reasonable cool.
Cons: Random black screens daily mostly when gaming, but occasionally in a browser. No rhyme or reason to them. Sometimes get an "out of video memory" message (8 GB vram! ....Really!!???)
Overall Review: I wish I had dug deeper into the reviews before I bought this card. For some reason AMD can't fix the black screen bug which is either in it's driver package or in the hardware itself. VERY disappointing to have spent this much money and have to beta test for who knows how long......

Pros: Booted with no problem after I found a defective power cable....
Bios have lots of options

Pros: I'm amazed how quiet and cool this card is compared to the 4870 I replaced!! 29c at idle and barely over 50c running Farcry2 at max settings (I haven't had time to play any others).
Cons: Not much of a con,but, all of the documentation/drivers is from previous models. They haven't had time to catchup yet.
Overall Review: I can't wait to "stress" this card a bit to see what it can do!
Pros: Roomy, LOTS of ventilation, good wire routing, looks great, and can fit a 5870 video card.
Cons: Only one fan included, but the price is right
Overall Review: This case will surprise you. Well made, easy to fit everything into, and a ton of ventilation ports to fit fans on. I live in an area where it gets hot in the summer time, so a case with really good ventilation keeps the cpu & vid card much happier.
Add free shipping and Newegg getting it here really fast, and, it's a great deal.
