Summary: We bough this for my sons HP computer to replace the internal motherboard based card versus buying a new gaming PC. Wow what difference and no more complaints of frame pauses during video games.
Summary: Card runs a bit hot but that's probably from my camped case. 1 GB vram version is a good price break and still is a big enough screen buffer to run a 1080p monitor. Running it on a 500W PSU even though box suggests 550, haven't had any issues even though the 12V rail has a lower than recommended...
Summary: With the rebate this is a great value. I picked up a 7950 based card also before the R series made them obsolete. R series usually offers more RAM but with what I think is a significant increase in price. BF4 at 1080p on high on this 7850 is pleasantly playable.
Summary: I got this card for a great deal (130) with a mail-in rebate (+ Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider for free). It's in my XBMC based HTPC / "Steambox" gaming machine connected to my Pioneer AVR & Samsung 46" TV via HDMI.
