Two Years Later 9/10/2011 5:17:47 PM

Pros: Still keeps up with new games at high settings.

Big, burly, easy enough to install.

Actually pretty easy to disassemble and not too hard to clean.

Seems that the capacitors are near the very edge/end of the graphics card. Making installing third party coolers easier.

Cons: Fan broke after two years of not too hard gaming.

Made my computer super loud. Horrifically loud. I thought it was because of all my other computer parts and the card, but in reality, it was just the card. My computer is a whisper without the 4890 in. I had to buy a third party cooler to replace the broken fan.

Overall Review: So in short, after two years my fan died. Yup. Right outside of warranty. I didn't game or stress the card madly either. I gamed on my PC somewhat regularly and have other powerful computer parts to take the load off the GPU. Disassembling the card was easy and it seems to be rather simple -- making it easier to install third party coolers.

Buy a third party cooler. You'll be glad. I ordered a GV1000 Zalman.

bang for the buck 7/13/2009 10:44:02 AM

Pros: Got it on sale. OC gpu 1000mhz/ ram 1120mhz. Runs about 2 or 3C cooler than my 4850 and 4870. With fan set to 35%, room temp at 80F, idles 43C/load 57-60C.(I've got a 70 cfm fan blowing straight to it.)Fan noise is about the same as the his 4870 (both set to 35%), but I can feel a lot more air flow out the back.Can't beat the performance without spending a LOT more money.

Cons: High pitch fan noise over 50% is horrific. Fortunately, if you've got good airflow you shouldn't need more than 40%. If your hd cage faces the back instead of the side, you'll loose at least 1 slot with any high performance card.

Overall Review: I stick with ATI cards because as far as I'm concerned the small performance difference isn't worth the huge price difference.

Awsome Card 7/7/2009 10:18:17 AM

Pros: This thing improved some things but not alot. I upgraded from a MSI 8800gt OC 512. I was happy with the old card tell they came out with the 9s and stopped making my card so i could not SLI. Nice that with ATI i only need to have the same type not exactly the same card. Like i can Crossfire 4890 w/ 4850 if i wanted. Thats kool. So i got this card and i am going to cross it with another 4890 in a few but i dose not have to be the same card. nice!!!!

Cons: Fan is loud and i am not joking. this thing is louder then my vac.
Card is huge and thats an understatment. This thing in a mid tower case is about 1/4" away from the metal support brakets for the HD's. I would put this card in a full tower or only run one HD. I have 3 HD and had to put one in a CD bay.

Overall Review: Overall performance is not what i expected but it is better then my old card. Not a big jump but better. I like the fact that i have had 0 problems with windows 7 RC with the drivers. If its stable on a test os. I have NV cards on other comps with driver problems nice job ATI. Card dose not run hot at all even OC'ed it to max and still only kicked fan speed to 67%. 100% is so loud lol.

Nothing special 6/21/2009 1:58:23 AM

Pros: It works and works fastly!

Cons: Only a silly one, the packaging had me fooled for a while that it didn't come with anything except the card. well, turned out there is a bot under the card that has all the other items, sure did seem like a secret compartment though :P

Overall Review: great performance, runs a bit hot but not enough to be a problem unless you have poor cooling in your case. Newegg
got me this and some other parts with free shipping to my house in less than 48 hrs after my purchase, beat that all those sites that take a week just to ship!

Makes Games Cry 6/19/2009 8:30:35 PM

Pros: Makes games cry, in Crossfire mode, makes them like little schoolgirls.

FAST. Insanely so. Crossfire worked perfectly in Windows 7.

Solid 100+FPS at 1920x1080 full max quality in all games, especially Mass Effect, is REALLY nice.

Cons: After finaggling with Windows XP and Catalyst Control Center, if you get an error to shut off 3D programs or video playback no matter whether you are running anything or not, simply uninstall and reinstall and reboot a couple times. After that headache, works just as well as it did in Windows 7.

Overall Review: the 5xxx ATI cards are coming out in July, I'll be buying the equivalent 5890 or similar when it is out. ATI usually puts out (like they did with the 4870) a basic enthusiast card, and a couple months later puts out the final distilled card. this card supports DX10.1, the 5xxx series will support DX11

Actually very quiet card 6/19/2009 7:14:19 PM

Pros: Card was very easy to install and ends up being quieter than the 4830 that I took out. Allthough it is audible it's not obnoxious. I had a BFG card once that sounded just like my Vacuum cleaner. My wife thought I was running it in my office. This card is very tame in comparison.

Cons: Not the fastest card in the world but runs Crysis and CODWAW at very high settings. Maxed out WIC. Gets 13223 on 3DMark Vantage, included with the card BTW.

Overall Review: None

Good Card, little loud though 6/19/2009 9:08:15 AM

Pros: Great performance. I am able to max out the settings on just about every game. Prototype, Mirrors Edge, TF2 and Mirrors Edge all play smoothly with all the graphics settings turned up to the maximum.

Cons: LOUD. I have this in a P182 case, and even then this thing is crazy loud. If you want a quieter card, consider an aftermarket cooler or a different card.
