Performance, Cooling and visual appeal. It performs as it should!

Summary: I already had one of these and added one more for Crossfire. I went with the ASUS brand again for it's performance, great quiet cooling solution and visual appeal. It overclocks well from 915/1050 stock to 995/1185. While gaming overclocked the highest temps this card reached was 82c. Hot yes, but not over it's capabilities, and under it's extreme temp which I do believe is 100. It works wonderfully in tandem powering my 2560x1440 IPS monitor.
Summary: TYhe card is excellent, purchased for the grandsons revamped computer. Fast, cool and have had zero problems with the video card. The card runs anything he owns at high resolution and he is thrilled. The S20.00 rebate is another issue. The rebate was submitted in a timely manner and was declined because the purchase order was not their idea of an acceptable version (b.s.). They did send an email with the declination.
If you don't have PCIe 3, this is the card for you

Summary: First - Why, and, who, needs this type of card. The main reason for getting one of these cards is Eyefinity. Eyefinity lets you plug in up to 3 monitors into a single card. Create a single desktop of all 3 if you want. There ARE conditions. You can't just plug in any 3 monitors, so you need to read the SIMPLE requirements. A secondary reason for getting something less than a Radeon HD 7xxx series may be your motherboard. The Radeon HD 7xxx series, and up, uses PCIe 3.
Summary: This is a great graphics card from ASUS. The heatsink does its job well and it's also quiet. Overclocking capability is also very good. I have mine running at 990/1195 at stock voltage. Nevermind the software from ASUS because they can make the card "hick up" every few seconds for some games, for instance, PES 2009. The core clock can go to 1 GHz and maybe a little bit more if your case is well ventilated.
Summary: Let me start off by saying this card is MASSIVE. Yes, it's been said before, but just make sure your case is big enough for this guy. Luckily, I had no problem at all getting this card in my system. Downloaded the latest drivers from ASUS, and I was up and running. I opened up Crysis 2 not expecting much from this card, seeing as how it's only about $200, but much to my surprise it was handling Gamer settings fine, so I cranked it up to Hardcore just for fun and I must...
Summary: GREAT PERFORMANCE But, like some review said out there.... IT IS A BEAST OF A CARD!! It will Definitely not fit in a small computer case. 1 big Con: it is crossfire capable but it is so big that you will be lucky if you can add another similar video card to your system. I have an ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX and this video card took the space of 2 PCI-E 16x and 1 PCI-E 1x.
Summary: I have an older computer, a DELL Inspiron 530 with a Q6600 Quad Core. I wanted a video card that supported 3 monitors. So I bought the ASUS Radeon HD 6870 since it was on sale. I installed the card and loaded the drivers. Everything looked fine until I tried playing with the display settings i.e. resolution and desktop configuration. I would restart the computer and a blue screen (not the Blue Screen of Death) would pop up, then turn black, then nothing.
Summary: Like tittle said. Great performance and very cold but after 65ºC get a little loud by the fan speed with smartdoctor setup in auto, but even with that im thinking on buy one more for crossfire. I love this card.
