5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card, love it.

Pros: -Price when I bought it was ~100 dollars.
-STILL after a year runs every game I throw at it full settings (TF2, Borderlands, NFS Shift/Shift 2, ProStreet, Portal 2)
-Can run hard. I mean hard, this card is built like a rock, I run my stuff hard. Overclocked to max that the ATI utility allows for, and it still manages to keep going.
-Actually uses VGA for my VGA monitor.
-Will run a 1680x1050 resolution on pretty much any game (except maybe Crysis, I haven't tried that) with around 30 FPS.
-Supports Crossfire, would almost consider running two in unison if my board supported it and there weren't newer cards on the market.

Cons: -Does run a little loud if the fan speed is set high or it gets hot, since the fan will thus speed up.
-Does run a little hot, when overclocking in my room it's like having a space heater on, but usually doesn't bug me too bad, nothing to take off an egg for.
-Takes up 2 expansion slots, but again, nothing to take off an egg for.

Other Thoughts: Beautiful card and if technology didn't get better, I would buy another one... Two... Three in a heartbeat, this card may be old now but it will still handle almost any game at a bearable FPS, running two in Crossfire would probably handle even more with the exception of possibly Crysis and a few very intensive games. Still, if you're looking for a card for someone who runs a regular desktop and doesn't do too much this may be your card right here, that is, if it's not deactivated at the time.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Card For The Price

Pros: This card has exceeded my expectations in every game I've played.
I paid less than $90 for it but its power was worth at least $130.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The card is huge.
Make sure you have room for it in your case.

3 out of 5 eggsWas Pretty Good

Pros: This card was part of a Phenom II 555 budget build to play WoW and stream movies. It was overkill for that job. Made for very deep and bright colors, excellent detail. A fairly powerful card for the price when I bought it.

Cons: It never ran hot, but died anyway. I got 1 year of use out of it. Sapphire had a 2 year warranty on this card, started the process yesterday by contacting them through their website.

Other Thoughts: I enjoyed the card while it lasted. As not much of a gamer, I had always used onboard graphics. This card's performance opened my eyes to the error of my ways.

4 out of 5 eggsPurchased when first came out

Pros: When I first purchased this card the drivers did not help with the temp. It seemed all the 4850 cards at birth time had that temp issue. Drivers got better, but unfortunately I purchased a micro motherboard so I just made it fit with very little clearance for the fan on this 4850. Temps were still high, so I turned the side case fan pointing in and it helps quite a bit. The case fan actually blows right on the card now. Still going strong over a year later. Far Cry 2 is not the greatest game, but the graphics are beautiful with this card and Direct X 10. I recommend as I paid $170 way back then and for the price it is a steel. Also, ATI drivers are much better now.

Cons: When the 4850 came out it was all about a heat sink that worked really good and a fan to boot for the cooling. At the time this card had it and a lot of others did not. I am sure their are many cards out there with a better cooling system now, but this one works just fine.

Other Thoughts: Shopping for a card is tough and the choices and prices change all the time. There is never a right time to purchase. I read as much as I can on the net to inform myself and take that plunge. The reviews on NewEgg do help. All in All, this is a very good card for the money and will play most anything in substantial eye candy. No matter what card you purchase, in 6 months the technology moves on....take that plunge on your informed decision.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the price

Pros: 100 bucks and I can play everything I like with an exceptional amount of detail and good frame rates? Sounds good to me. My monitor maxes out at 1680x1050 so I needed a card that would support a heavy amount of detail at that point. This fit the bill nicely.

It is very quiet at idle, and runs very cool. Of course, once you get gaming it starts to take off, but it's nothing that a gamer shouldn't expect to hear. Very stable, even when it hits 50-60C, and it will cool itself off within seconds. Haven't messed with the clock speeds, mainly because from what I understand you can't really push a whole lot more than marginal differences out of most video cards anyway.

Cons: ?

Other Thoughts: Bought this when it was 100 bucks. Choose between this, the 5750 512MB, or the GTS 250, depending on the price. They're all pretty close.

1 out of 5 eggs? reliability

Pros: Good value for the card when I bought it, seemed fairly capable.

Cons: Died after 1.5 weeks, massively so. cooling fan doesn't seem to be well designed in relation to the case..no means fo channeling hot air out of case, just essentially blows it right back at itself. For a dual slot card, it would be nice to have a better cooling system. That being said I don't think it ever got too hot when I was running it, but I didn't really tax it at all.

Other Thoughts: 1 star simply for the outstanding 5 star service of Newegg, as always. Issued RMA immediately, handled the whole thing very efficiently.

5 out of 5 eggsgood card

Pros: Handles quite a bit of load
Hasn't thrown any problems yet
Fan looks sturdy, works well

Cons: Not the greatest thing on the market, but for the price it is definitely the best bang for the buck.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Very good performance for the price. I get around 38-40 FPS palying Crysis at 1680x1050 at medium settings (Win 7 ultimate 32 bit). Initially, I was getting crashes pretty conmsitently after about 10 mins of gameplay (in Crysis and Far Cry 2), and I thought it was a WIn 7/ATI driver compatibility issue. However, it ended up being that my CPU was heating up too much during gameplay (77 C) due to dust in the heatsink, causing the crashes. I cleaned up the heatsink and haven't had a crash since. So, if you are having crashing issues, check you GPU and CPU temps. I use HWmonitor. It probably took me a week to figure out the problem.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsHow long will yours last?

Pros: Worked great until it stopped dead.....dead as a doornail.....stone cold dead.....the big sleep.

Cons: Mine died after 25 days. Lucky me. I returned it to Newegg since it stopped working within the 30 day return period. I also have issue with Sapphire since support was NON existent when I emailed them with questions during the install. So the question is, how long will yours last? You ready to gamble? It is worth spending a little more to get something reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsBye Nvidia

Pros: 7.3 in Windows 7. This replaced a 8800gt and can see a 50% increase in FPS in Left for dead. Beats all Nvidia 200 series cards

Cons: They didn't accidentally put two in for crossfire

Other Thoughts: For under a hundred dollars. It's they best card for the buck.
