Pros Price, power for price, HD video play back, as well as general data encoding with the new Catayls Drivers
Cons Fps compared to high end but you got to emit its a sub 150$ gpu, crossfire scaling
Summary Overall this gpu doesnt compete with high end Gpu's but it is a great Graphics card if you are planing on watching Hd videos, and or mediem games. Though this card can play crysis 1080p k about 32 fps on very high. Congrats to Ati
Cons Occasional display issues, although probably driver-based
Summary I purchased this card to couple with a Gigabyte X58 motherboard and overall, it's been a good purchase. Ran the card through its initial benchmarks and played COD4 on it with no issues. Would purchase again.
Cons Unit crashes in SC2 and WOW on ULTRA and HIGH settings.
Summary I'm sure it's something that could be fixed with a firmware update... but this unit it giving the black screen of death during games. Manually setting the fan to 100% can help... but not completely. My setup is the AMD Phenom X4 II - 965 and DDR3 memory. I put this unit in my AMD Phenom 1 X4 with DDR2 and it runs great. Will probably swap it and spring for a 6850 in the other computer.
Summary For some reason it seems that I got a vapor X one instead cause the cooler looks like it. But anyways, this is a pretty good card for gaming at around then 1650x1050 resolution but thats the limit. You can really complain about a sub-$200 card when it offers you triple monitor support and DX11.
Pros La meilleure affaire du marché présentment. Un carte très abordable et presqu'aussi performente que la GTX260. Devient très performente lorsqu'utilisées en CrossfrieX. DirectX 11 pour le future.
Cons Le refroidisseur n'est pas comme celui montré sur l'image dans la description du produit. Le système de refroidissement est le version 2 maintenant. Pour le GPU il est équivalement mais pour la mémoire il est probablement moins efficasse puisqu'il n'y a plus de contact en le refroidisseur est le mémoires.
Summary J'ai acheter deux carte comme celle-ic pour utiliser en CrossfireX dans mon système principal. Ce setup de deux carte graphique est une meilleur affaire qu'une seule HD 5870 parce qu'aussi performente à bien moin chère. Utilisé avec un processeur I7 920 et un peu d'overclock. Ce système est une vraie machine de guerre... À mon avis la HD 5770 est la meilleur affaire du marché présentement.
Summary im running a amd 720be with a Gigabyte 790xta-ud4 ATX Motherboard. with a powercolor 4770 and 3 wd 1tb black hdd. 8gig of sector 5 oc to 1400mhz I was able to unlock my 4th core & oc to 3.675ghz with a Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 temp is 18c idle 27c load . so i added a Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 850MHZ 1GB. i got this one on price match. so far it is great. there is a noticeable dif!

Summary For the price i'm verry happy with this card. It is directx 11 compatible so i should keep it a while even if it doesn't have the 58xx cards performances. But it is enough to run every game aailable right now. It even has a displayport output if your monitor support it.
Pros For the price, amazing performance. Direct X 11. Windows 7 64support out of the box.
Cons No included games, but who really cares ?
Summary Coupled with MSI P55-CD53. This is a nice video card at the price. Performance is on par (slightly less) than the 4870, but you have Direct X 11 support which promises better, less demanding games. If you are looking for a nice midrange solution, go for it. A single one will run every game you want it too. I would like to see the Crossfire results too...
