5 out of 5 eggsBest Dang Cards I have had to date!!!

Pros: Card was powerful,cool running, worked no matter the condition it was in, humidity, dust, hot weather, you name it it always worked. Never had any bad experiences.

Cons: After 3 years fans got really loud and wobbly.
After 4 years driver support became horrible bugged with shadow rendering.
After 7 years cards are not supported, and I will now have buy a new one. (Dang things may be loud but they still work like a champ other than no updatable drivers!!)

Other Thoughts: Sad to let them go as I have had them for over 6 years now and never needed to upgrade.I will be giving them to my son so that he can try and tear em up now while learning about PC's.

To my Dual HD 5850's: 2009-2016. I will never forget the hours you gave me over the years.

5 out of 5 eggsStood The Test of Time

Pros: I bought this card in December of 2009. Im finally upgrading to a 7950 because I finally need to. This card has been able to play everything Ive thrown at it for more than three years!

Cons: Not a single one.

Other Thoughts: When it comes to AMD cards I now have an affinity for Sapphire.

1 out of 5 eggsCard bartley outlives warranty

Pros: Card was reasonably priced and ran great for 25 months.

Cons: 25 months happens to be one longer than the warranty. Car started exhibiting strange behavior with screen shut offs followed by full fan speed spinup.

Sometimes this would happen at boot, other times it would happen under only desktop load after a short while of windows operation. Card now no longer functions at all.

Other Thoughts: Sapphire only warrants their work for 2 years for a reason. I had good luck with them on a previous card but the warranty was longer back then. The shorter warranty shows the lack of faith in their own product.

New card is a XFX with a lifetime warranty, which atleast will be replaceable if it should fail.

1 out of 5 eggsSapphire is not a company to trust.

Pros: It was a nice video card, while it lasted.

Cons: Video card died after 20 months. Customer support was difficult to reach, but eventually replaced the card. Replacement card died after six months, and now they refuse to cover the card. If you have problems, Sapphire is not going to be your friend, and will not help you any more than they must. DO NOT BUY FROM SAPPHIRE.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy a Sapphire card again, and I would recommend that nobody else buy one either.

Pros: Great performance. Runs eyefinity.

Cons: HDMI automatic scaling when connected to a 1080p monitor. Had to download catalyst instead of just plug and play.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Fast

Runs cool

Easy overlocking

Cons: It's frigging huge, but so are all the other video cards

Other Thoughts: To the people having driver issues, the problem's all on you. I've installed drivers straight from ATI and run windows 7, and mine purrs like a kitten.

Don't hesitate to buy this card, I'd give it 6 eggs if I could.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card

Pros: Awesome card. Runs everything on max graphics settings. The tessellation in DX11 looks awesome! Runs cool and doesn't use much power. The card is rather long so check your case before buying. I completely suggest this card.

Cons: Putting in this card seemed to slow down AION to about 20 FPS, and causes it to run at a decent frame rate only on the lowest settings. This is most likely an issue with the game, though, not supporting the new 5xxx cards perfectly.

2 out of 5 eggsDriver Fiasco

Pros: For four months it worked without issue and would dominate anything I threw at it.

Cons: The drivers are a joke, my PC was solid for months, but now in the last week or two I have been unable to run simple programs without driver failure leading to lockups. It just seems ridiculous to me that a video card of this price is failing to run applications that onboard video would have no problems with.

Other Thoughts: If this driver issue isn't resolved within the next week or two, it looks like I'll be joining the many that are one and done with ATI

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: This card feels atleast 2x as fast as my 9800GTX+. I've been running it for about a month, 100% trouble free. I even just bought a secound card for a crossfire setup.

Cons: none

1 out of 5 eggsDON"T BUY, im serious

Pros: I can be an outstanding video card. except.

Cons: Awful driver software, causing constant blue screen. Updates on the web, add to the problem. Too many problems and patches needed.
