Summary: This is a great video card. It will still play all the new games with all the bells and whistles turned up. The Asus cards are "voltage tweak" enabled to aid in overclocking if you would like to try it. Overall a great product.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) This review is from: ASUS Radeon HD5870 1 GB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card EAH5870/G/2DIS/1GD5/V2 (Electronics) You read the review of the mags online touting that is is the 5870 card with "voltage tweaking" that will allow you to overclock your card stably beyond any other 5870 1gb card. Well that is partially true.
Summary: This thing is a beast. By far the best version of the 5870, it can overclock far better than any other 5870 on the market. The 2gb 5870 models are available, but they can't overclock very well and the extra gig is only useful if you are running multiple monitors at high resolutions. This is a must for single monitor gaming. This thing is a monster and destroying benchmarks left and right.
Summary: I don't have anything that will even heat this card up (command and conquer 3,4, age of empires 3, etc). I hear Crysis is pretty graphics-intensive but don't have it. I also hear that this card will chew up and spit out just about anything you can throw at it in Crysis. Looking forward to getting a second one, and crossfiring them.
Great card. I just wish it had a knob for fan control.

Summary: The Perfonmance you get with this graphics card is exellent but sometimes chrashes in the middle of an online game like call of duty 6, or any other game wich is going to make you reboot your computer so far with the new drivers everything is good.
Stunning Performance, Excellent Quality and Great Value

Summary: Calling this an amazing card would be an insult and understatement. This single GPU graphics card beats out just about every video card on the market today aside for the HD 5970 which is a dual GPU video card. Once you place the HD 5870 in a 2 GPU crossfire configuration it even surpasses the HD 5970, and once you add in a third... well lets just say its impossible to touch. The card runs great, uses a lot less power than cards before it which also means less heat.
