Experience: 10 Days
Runs cool, fits my board, great bag for the buck
I started out looking for a 5770 but the price and performance sweet spot of this card made it irresistible. I will not be able to do every game at max but all at good is good enough.

At idle I only have 39 degrees C, and can not hear the fan.

Experience: 2 Weeks
 Verified Owner
- Great 3D performance
- Looks great
- Quiet fans
- Not as high performing as other units, but fairly close for half the price
While these units won't win any top 3DMark performances when compared to their 5870/5890 counterparts, they offer solid performance and max settings for all current games. EyeFinity seems like a cool idea too. I have two of these CrossFire'd and am loving every minute of it. Highly recommended for those on a budget.

Experience: 10 Days

Nice performance for a mid-range card
Lots of ports for multi-display setups
Poor accessory bundle
Fans slightly loud
Requires 2 6-pin PCI-E connectors so you might need to upgrade PSU
I had to replace my 8800GTS as it just didn't have the horsepower to play Metro 2033 at a playable rate. I got two of these cards in CrossFireX and I am very happy with the result. Now Metro 2033 is very playable and I am enjoying every bit of it.

The accessory bundle is very sparse. A VGA/DVI adapter and a mini-HDMI to full-HDMI cable are the only things included.

Since I got two of these cards I had to upgrade my PSU from 620w to 850w. I've got a lot of other components so I wanted to make sure that I didn't run out of juice.
