Huge Waste of my Time, hopefully Not Yours

Summary: I bought this wonderful looking Video Card for my HTPC/Gaming computer for my large living room. At first it looked like the best deal I could have ever found, Great Price, Great Performance, and best of all Silent. Well it sure was silent I can tell you that. First because it has no moving parts at all and second because it does not work. I installed the card into the motherboard, easy. Then I went to fire the computer up using a spare VGA monitor for the first time.
Summary: I have had to jump through some hoops every time I need to update the drivers. The Catalyst control center updates seem to cause me to suffer a BSOD with a STOP code 50 whenever I launch a graphics-intensive program. Verified that it was the GPU by switching to the motherboard integrated chipset. Annoying workaround: Download new driver .exe file. Use the Device manager in Windows to remove the existing drivers completely. reboot. Install .exe file. Reboot.
Summary: i am gamer,and the card performs pretty good with high graphics games it demands on the game it struggles like a actively cool fan video card does on the new batman games,and some heavy graphics games other wise its pretty good for the price,and no fan burnout ever. but its performance can be over clocked with asus smart doctor,and i just replaced it from my asus nvdia gf gt440 oc,and surprising enough it this card is better.
Summary: It was time to upgrade my IGP. Bought a HD 6870 but it sounds like a jet taking off. It's going back. Found two passive cooling options, the HD 7750 but it cost more and bench test about the same as the HD 6770. For the price and the performance, the HD 6770 is just what I wanted. Crysis on full at 1080p with no lag. This thing is LARGE but it fits. Silent.
Summary: I can't believe the cr*p ratings people give products simply because they have no idea what they are doing or how to use the product they purchased. I did not let the previous 1-star rating affect my decision to buy this card and I hope you will not either! I am connecting this card to a 1080p capable television (Sony KDL-40XBR6) which was manufactured in 2008, as my computer monitor. I have had ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS with this card.
Summary: I could have gone with any card on the market, including models sporting 2 years worth of performance enhancements, but there was something about the giant radiator-like heatsink with all those gorgeous silver fins and chromed heat-pipes contrasted against the stark red and black cover of this one that made me have to have it.
