Very Fast!
Can run any game full out!
Power usage
Runs hot
Fans a little loud, but whatever, gotta cool it some how.
This is the best card I have gotten! So fast!

I up the fan to 38% and it dropped temps to around 43 idle and around 70 full out. Having a high air flow case is a most with this card.

All and all I would recommend this card to anyone!

Experience: 5 Months
 Verified Owner
Fastest Card out there, and having two of them is even Better
ATI has yet to enable the side port feature which will reportedly increase the performace of these cards even more
Cooling is lacking
Well waiting a long time for these babies, and it weas worth the wait. I have two of these in crossfire, and games never looked better,

Drivers are better now, and still expect some updates from ATI, but I have not seen any BSODs lately from ATI's drivers.

As many high end GPU cards go, these babies put off alot of heat, which much of it gets dumped into the computer. I had to run the desktop with the side covers off to keep the heat levels down.

I have sinced replaced the stock cooling with two Koolance Water blocks, and the temps are now a stable 40 degrees under load.

Experience: 2 Days
As you all know...high resolution,all effects on, still run games smoothly.
hot! loud fan!
the best single card in the market. Bought it on Saturday sale while it was 499. Hope this card can last me a while before DX11 card release. Upgraded from 8800GTS g92 to this one, the picture quality is better, and of couses games run smoother. I hope the price will not drop  a lot on boxing day. =D

- Price ($499 after MIR) was good
- Fan is loud when it approaches max
Use this and a 32" Sharp 1080p HDTV as my monitor. The card might be overkill for a lowly 1920x1080 resolution, and at this res it handles everything thrown at it with ease.

Had to update  the BIOS on my Asus Maximus Formula to get this card to work. Before update  there would be no video signal.

Overall, considering the price now is $200 more, I'm happy with the card.

Experience: 3 Days
 Verified Owner
fast smooth, can't tell you how loud it is becasue water is on it
none....well drivers in xp only use one gpu but in vista 64 everything is great.
This card rocks so far playing everything on max settings on a 24in benq lcd 1920x1200 with aa maxed smooth as silk added ek nickel block to the card and temps are 30c idle 40c loaded. absolutely no problems. There is a way of enabling both gpus in xp just got to google for a solution

Experience: 30 Days
 Verified Owner
great graphics, playable frame rates in crysis, good for benchmarking/performance
cost, heat, having to create  fan profiles, catalyst control center
Right off the bat I had some issues getting the card started, the manual said you can run it off of 2 6 pin connectors, but mine required the 8 pin also before it would boot... after that, CCC often crashes. However, gameplay is smooth and looks good... pretty fast card.

Experience: 3 Weeks
-incredibly powerful
-runs at a decent temperature
-best video card going atm
-drivers a bit wonky in Vista 64bit
I have to say that this cards is well beyond what I expected. So far I have run everything at 2560x1600 on my Smasung 305T without a single hiccup. The card has no equal at this time without a doubt. To be truthfull the stock fan is quite loud but it's a comprimise I am willing to live with. I also had a problem with the ATI reference driver the first time around but a quick Google search got me going in no time. I'd purchase again for sure.

Space savings over 2 hd4870's, seems much quieter than single 4870's, fewer power connectors needed which means less clutter, sweet black PCB and gunmetal port plate, has future sideport GPU to GPU functionality onboard, sweet NCIX price n 525 bucks.
Very minor stuff...not much in the way of included software, card is quite heavy due to the heatsinks, took me some fiddling to get it to work right (had to completely remove all traces of former catalyst software)
I'm one proud pappa! I had a pair of 4870's in xfire and decided to upgrade to save some space and clutter in my case...not to mention braggin' rights to 2 Gig's of GDDR5! This thing looks like Darth Vadar's pissed off illegitimate son! Real Bad A$$!! Handles everything I throw at it without a hiccup and runs much quieter than my pair of 4870's did. The GPU temps are showing an improvement over the single 4870's I had too! Just a warning to those thinking about this card...make sure your PSU can handle it (I got a HX1000 so I'm covered...but I'm sure that's just overkill) and that you have a robust and fast CPU to feed this monster. Best darn graphics card purchase I've ever made! I love this puppy and am glad ATI are finally back in the game!

Very powerful. destroys any game i throw at it even.
none so far, will have to see Customer service experience at diamond.

little loud
got it for surprise sale at 525, amazing ncix deal.

Very satisfied with product. So far it can play G.R.I.D., and COD 4 at over constant 60 fps with at least 4x aa

-Very Fast
-Great for high resolutions
-High power use
Overall one of the most satisfying video purchases for me since the 9700pro. Very fast at 1920x1200, even in supposedly gpu destroying games like stalker clear sky (which just needs a couple minor tweaks to run 100% better in dx10 mode even at 1920x1200 on this card.) Got this on a sale for almost 100 bucks off, currently on yet another ncix sale and a very good purchase. Just have a good power supply to feed it. I went over the top with a 1000w but an 800 should even suffice.
