i like it alot

Pros: card is a beast.....maxes everything i play and then some, looks great....i have the red ones in a full tower with lotsa red leds....single card with cpu at 3.1(stock voltage) scored 15k on 3dmark06...crossfire scored about 17.5...took cpu to 3.5 and pulled nearly 20k

Cons: can get hot but, i have 2 crossfired inside a CM HAF 932 with a ton of fans and MSI 790fx so there is a pcie slot between them, which is nice not having them stacked directly on top of one another.... in other words heat is not an issue for me

Other Thoughts: my build:
amd phenom2 X3 720--unlocked and overclocked to X4 at 3.1 on stock voltage have gone as high as 3.5 stable though
zalman cnps7500 led cooler
msi 790fx-gd70
2x XFX radeon 4890s crossfire
2x2gb gskill ripjaw ddr3 1600
CM ultimate 700w psu
wd caviar black 1 tb hdd
all loosely packed in a CM HAF 932 full tower

Good Car, but Died!

Pros: DX10, Fast, Cheaper than 59xx series

Cons: Non Standard Heatsink & Fan combination. This fan runs default controlled by the card on the fan speed. When messing with that in catalyst, the rear will acually suck air into the card and exhaust into the case. This was not good as I needed to up the fan to 70% just to keep BFBC2 to stay running without killing my pc. Died after 7 months!

Other Thoughts: Next time I will need to do more research. THis card has flaws and reports incorrectly to the catalyst program. Waiting for XFX to get back to me to see what they can replace on this since I dont think this card is readily available any longer.

Awesome

Pros: I've had this card for a little over a year now... And let me tell you... It's amazing. Runs every game I throw at it at max settings and resolution with ease. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 runs at approximately ----91 FPS---- at all times... Drops occasionally when running an addon such as Fraps to record video, in which case it usually doesn't drop below 60. Got a 7.6 rating on Windows 7. I'd give it a 10.0.

Cons: Heat is the only issue.... It runs hot to the touch, and can make a bedroom quite unbearable with the door shut in a matter of 15 minutes of gaming (Runs cool when it's not being used for gaming, however).

Other Thoughts: I'd highly suggest this card to anyone that wants to take their gaming experience to the next level. It was definitely worth the money.

Lots of Bang for the Buck

Pros: This card is very beefy for its price! It's handled any game I could throw at it in full-detail with no graphics lag at all. I'm very pleased with its performance.

Cons: The fan has been an issue for me. It rattled loudly when under 48% speed, but when I manually set it above 49%, the whir was simply too loud for an "idle" speed to be bearable. The whir noise can be a deterrent for some people, and to these I'd recommend simply investing in a quieter card.

Other Thoughts: I eventually found a fix to the fan rattle (which seems to be a problem in only some cards). I took the GPU out of my case and spun it with my finger--it rattled even at that low speed. So I fiddled with the power cord--pushing it in or pulling it out a few mm--until it didn't rattle. Now I'm running it on auto at about 33% idle with almost no sound at all! If yours is rattling, try this before disowning the card.

One Of The Most Powerful Cards For Under $200!!

Pros: Super Powerful, Super Fast, Overclocks like a champion!! Currently I am running this card at the max settings allowed by ATI Catalyst. I have a 1GHZ CORE CLOCK AND 1200MHZ MEMORY!! This card can completely max out any game I have thrown at it so far with excellent framerates. This card beats most of the 5000 series cards in raw power.

Cons: This card runs HOT, HOT, HOTT!!! Make sure you have a case with really good airflow. This is not a reccomendation but a requirement unless you want to severely shorten the life span of your card and every other component in your pc. Doesn't play DX11 but u know that when u buy it.

Other Thoughts: if you want a powerful card for less $ get this guy. Get the Asus version of this card it has Asus bios with a special tool known as "Smart Doctor" that lets you adjust the voltage for better OC's.

Cons: Not as fast as a 5870...no Dx11...getting the warranty info filled out on XFX's website was pure joy...nahhh...gotta register within 30 days

Other Thoughts: register register register at least thats how many times it took me before it showed up on their website

1/ 5

Pros: Was never able to get it running.

Cons: Card was DOA, should have read through the comments section before ordering. QC problems of this magnitude are unacceptable in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was very fast and efficient with the refund process (full refund in store credit). Have now purchased the EVGA GTX 260 OC, slightly less performance but at least it will work when it gets here!

Nice card, but broke

Pros: First of all, I had the Sapphire version.

When the card worked, it worked GREAT. It was my first high end video card and I was extremely happy. Playing most games at 1920x1080 in full HD and Crysis at 1440x900 on High-ISH settings. Not a card flaw, my CPU just bottlenecks my machine.

Cons: Gets VERY hot. Not quite as hot as the new Fermi cards, but still hot.

Not sure exactly what happened to my card, but I read it at 76 degrees celsius when it was shutting off my computer. I decided to go ahead and send it back. Newegg was not able to send me another card, due to supply problems. However, they were able to process me a FULL REFUND of the original purchase price which took a little over a week to complete. Thanks Newegg!

Other Thoughts: It's a nice card, but not sure if it can take the heat. Granted, my case (XClio WindTunnel) has very good air cooling... it just didn't appear to be enough... or I just had a faulty card.

For the price, it was awesome. I was happy with it.
