Pros: good performance

Cons: blue screens

Other Thoughts: About a year ago I was anxiously awaiting the Radeon HD 7800 series to be released to replace my 4770. I bought this card almost immediately when it became available on Newegg. From the day I got it, I have had issues with occasional blue screens. I don't know if I have a bad card or if the drivers are just bad, but I'm leaning towards drivers. Driver revisions over the months have made some games more stable and other less stable. My computer is stable when I'm not playing a game, and a few games work without issues. But most games blue screen once per ~3-6 hours of gameplay. The error is usually with a component related to DirectX.

I didn't do anything for the longest time because I kept telling myself "this will be fixed in the next driver release." I have run diagnostics and stress tests on my system and they all pass. I'm afraid that the card probably works well enough and it's been long enough since I bought it that I won't be able to get a warranty replacement. But it definitely doesn't work well enough for me to be happy with it.
