Shader Model 5.0
Shader Model 5.0 adds support for indexed temporaries which can be quite useful for certain tasks.Regular direct temporary access is preferable is most cases. One reason is that indexed temporaries are hard to optimize. The shader optimizer may not be able to identify optimizations across indexed accesses that could otherwise have been detected. Furthermore, indexed temporaries tend to increase register pressure a lot. An ordinary shader that contains for instance a few dozen variables will seldom consume a few dozen temporaries in the end but is likely to be optimized down to a handful depending on what the shader does. This is because the shader optimizer can easily track all variables and reuse registers. This is typically not possible for indexed temporaries, thus the register pressure of the shader may increase dramatically. This could be detrimental to performance as it reduces the hardware’s ability to hide latencies.

Pros
fast clean and powerwise.
Cons
none
Summary
i bought this as an upgrade from the 5770 i was running and it was the best move i ever made. the 30 dollar differnce is definitely worth it for those who want performance with out having to worry about having to buy a big powersupply.
my system with phenom 1090t 6 gb ram and this card scored 20000 on 3d futurebenchmark6.

Pros
Pretty good sound and temps.
Cons
It is quite long, so you probably want to put it in your case last. It is in the way of my CMOS reset jumper pins, which can be annoying.
Summary
Price was pretty good. I haven't tried overclocking yet, but I hear good things. One thing to note is it has 1 DVI-D and 1 DVI-I connector. Most people probably have newer monitors so it isn't a problem anyways, but it is for me.

Pros
Great midrange GPU. So far have run all my games on max setting without having any FPS under 60. My res is 1920-1080. The GPU overclock very easily with the programs that come with the card.
Cons
The two fans dont seem to add much cooling, howerver, the look rlly nice. The overclocking program that comes with the card allows for basic overclocking only. Howerver, u can easily match (and surpass) the performance of other GPU's that come factory overclocked.
Summary
Great mid range GPU. Instead of going for higher end cards, might as well get two of these and get the same performance for much less.

Pros
-Great cooling
-Nice Overclock
-Plays everything well
Cons
-None to mention
Summary
A great card for running games on highest and 1920x1080. Metro2033, Battlefield BC2 both run on highest setting although slowdowns in Metro during certain sequences (this might be due to my processor).

A great buy

Pros
- quiet, low power consumption
- great performance for the price
- excellecent overclocking capabilities
- cheap
Cons
- None so far
Summary
I actually got the Diamond version of this card, but basically the same thing, besides this having a better dual-fan for cooling. I got it during the sale that was going on for 159.99 + tax (web deal only) but the sales guy gave me the deal anyways, so I was happy. Basically any version of the 6850 card you can't go wrong with the $200~ range. My old 8800GT died so i got this card for a quick replacement. I am using an older system with C2Duo 3.0 Ghz E6750, 4gig DDR2 ocz ram, Win Vista. I was able to overclock this card to 920/1120 from 775/1000 with minor voltage increase and and it runs game great even with my older system. I am currently playing WoW, COD: Black Ops, BF:BC2, SC2, L4D2, CS:S and it runs all my games well over 80fps (19x12 res, max settings, some AA and AF) so i am extremely please with this card considering my older system. Highly recommended for the average budget gamer that's not going for hardcore SLI/multi-display/benchmark-freak setups.

Great performance
Eyefinity
Dual Fan
Cons
none so far
Summary
Great card for a great price!

Can Overclock this from 775Mhz to 850Mhz GPU and 1Ghz to 1.2Ghz RAM with out of box software no problems ... curious if can go higher with other apps!?!

Fans run decently quiet - can reduce speeds if wanted for quieter applications. - the auto seems to do a great job.

Not much of a gamer (bought this for three monitor setup) ... but had to try Modern Warfare 2 on here .... WOW - full high res on 1080p all options on high - WOW - runs great!!

Pros
- great overclock
- great cooling
Cons
- stock fan speed at 70% (noisy at stock speed)
Summary
Great over all videocard
It's a bit noisy in stock setting, but once you use a program to overclock it, you can easely reduce fan speed to 30% and keep it cool. After it, you got a great and easely overclock video card that don't do to much noise and do not use to much power (it only needs 1 connector 6 pin to work!)

Summary
Compared to my ATI 4870, this card is a lot more powerful and definitely more quiet. For just about every game I can now play on max settings on 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Pros
First custom PCB to come out of the 6850 lineup from all companies
Cons
Loud fan
Summary
The loud fan issue was just an initial bios thing. A quick update  on the video card's bios, downloaded directly from Gigabyte's website turned down the fan's speeds to about 25%. stock settings before update  was around 50%.

At 100%, this thing is not even loud, and it provides VERY sufficient cooling. It does not run hot AT ALL. temps at 60 MAX.

When it plays crysis, there's coil whine. that's about it.
