Fast and pretty
A bit loud under full load
My Card went into i7 920 equipped box running Windows 7 64 bit Pro and there were zero problems with the install. Mostly been running Dirt2 with the graphics cranked up l 1080P resolution and it runs flawlessly and smooth and the visuals are stunning! All my friends are stunned by the quality. Forget about dual cards, get this one!

Experience: 1 Months

- Quiet (compared to HD 4890)
- Really powerful
- Low power usage
none so far
Got this card to replace 2 older HD 4890, and it’s a great upgrade. Frame rates are good when playing at 1920x1200 with AA. The current drivers are RC, but they work great in most games. The card is also very quiet when compared to older ATI models. You need to be carful with your case selection since this card is really long.

Comment: Elite Bastards Review: The fastest single GPU graphics board money can buy. It has a near-perfect feature set from its plethora of video outputs, with Eyefinity support, through to the now all-important DirectX 11 functionality. Worth every penny.
Posted by: BernardP @10/27/09
Comment: Let’s all take a journey back in time to November of 2006 where a card called the 8800 GTX was released. Not only was it’s G80 core the first DX10-capable graphics processor on the market but it also beat ATI’s own DX10 product –the R600- to ...
