Great budget card that will run all newer games at a mid range.
13 July 2013
Summary: I have owned this card for about a year and a half and it has very infrequently let me down. If you're looking for a budget PCIe 2.0 card which can run every new game out there with relatively good graphics quality then this is a great card. The negatives of this card are that it is not up to speed with newer PCIe 3.0 cards and it is a cheap mid range card that by no means will be running GPU intensive games on high settings while getting a high frame rate.
Summary: This graphics card worked great when I installed on Windows 7. The upgrade advisor (Microsoft) stated it is completely compatible with Window 8, no upgrade needed. Problem is, that as soon as I installed Windows 8, the drivers won't work. It was excessively difficult to contact Asus, but when I finally did get a response, it was to inform me that no Windows 8 driver was available and that I should just be patient. I was not happy with that answer.
Summary: When I saw the size, I was a little worried because my case is very small and condensed. All 3 slots were free though, and this card takes up space for 2 slots. After moving all wires out of the way of the PCI slot, I inserted the card. (At this point, I can see that there are 2 power connectors on the card, but the instruction manual gives little hint to what to do with them.
Summary: I have bought Asus products before and had no issues, until my graphics card died. I purchased this one as a gift after I bought myself a other one. The other one was newer. A newer model and died out in less then a year. If you have any issues with your product I hope you live in a place that has roads out. In Alaska we don't. Fedex ground only is there shipping method. If this one dies out too early I am out another couple hundred.
Summary: I think this is the best video card for the price right now. It will probably change in a couple of months but the performance once overclocked rivals video cards much more expensive. This thing runs really stable as well. 5 stars.
Summary: I could have gone with something faster or better than this graphics card but I'm happy with this one. It's more than enough to handle all my games that I play and whatever I want it to do ; well I'm actually playing Battlefield 3 on 1080p with everything on ultra and I'm at 32 to 45 FPS. Overclocked it a little bit just for fun and I gained a small of amount of FPS on my games.
Summary: i put this in the system that i just built along with an asrock 970 extreme 3, AMD FX-8120 and 16gb of AMD 1600 MHz RAM(which is yet to be delivered). i did, however, put this in my existing system (prebuilt HP P6610F) with an athlon ii x4, 4 gb of samsung ram, 250w psu...... and did manage to get it to work, but im pretty sure there was a major bottleneck going on, since, in minecraft others were getting 1000+ fps with this card and i was getting about 150 (still over...
Summary: I purchased this specific brand's HD 6850 with good reason: I wanted a solid CrossfireX system that didn't require four or more case fans to keep the main card's temperature hovering around 80 degrees Celsius. At my time of purchase (June 7th, 2012), this card cost me $149.99. You can find better deals than this from other brands: PowerColor's HD 6850 ($139.99), Gigabyte's ($143.99), etc.
