Beast for the price!!!

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.
Summary: It's great! i bought it to upgrade from a hd 4850 and i can run practically any game on high. I'm running swtor on high and runs great. I got the free 2 week shipping option to save some money and I actually received it in a week instead of 2 weeks. highly recommended. It is big and it takes up two slots. Make sure you have enough head room so the fan can "breathe". It came in a sexy black box.
Summary: I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this card, my last higher end card was an nVidia 7900GS which I bought 5 years ago and was replacing. When I opened the box I was a little worried because this card is about 4 times the size of a 7900GS, it's almost twice as long (it's as long as my mATX motherboard) and obviously alot thicker since it takes up two slots.
Summary: The ASUS EAH6850 DC/2DIS/1GD5/V2 AMD Radeon performs magnificently in an Intel i7 system. It rates as high as 7.8 on the Windows Experience Index scale where 7.9 is the highest. The card is big and requires 2 6-pin PCI-E power connectors. A Cross Fire configuration using 2 identical cards isn't necessary with this card. The HDMI port is the normal, full-size port. Some cards are using mini- and micro-HDMI ports which may not be compatible with your TV.
Summary: Opted to buy this rather than the new HD7770 because it costs less and outperforms that new cards by a small but not insignificant margin. I'll be using it in a custom built HTPC. Nice thing about it is that it have any connection you could need. I've been testing it with some video games and maxing settings on a few. It has held up nicely and runs very cool and quiet.
