Proceed with caution

Kevin M., Newegg
4 October 2013
  • Summary: Card stopped working after a month or two. Would frequently crash to a black screen and lock up the system. Tried wiping and reinstalling drivers, reinstalling Windows, replaced the PSU, checked the RAM, nothing worked. Put in my old card and everything worked perfectly.
  • Pros: Worked well for a short time
  • Cons: -Card often crashes to a black screen or glitched graphics. -Card is very long, has trouble fitting into an average sized case.

hardly worth the price tag

Ren P., Newegg
12 August 2013
  • Summary: spent close to $200 on this and it hardly performs better than my old card, plus it crashes all the time for no apparent reason, definitely would NOT recommend to others.
  • Pros: worked for about a month, long enough for the RMA deadline to run out
  • Cons: started crashing intermittenly after about a month of use, no warning just powers down while I'm in the middle of gaming, I've updated drivers and power supply is good enough, temperatures aren't getting that high. Performs equal to my old hd5770, considering putting that back in my computer as t...

Asus has poor warranty service

Brent E., Newegg
6 August 2013
  • Summary: I speculate they are waiting for the warranty to expire so the problem goes away. Unfortunately I have a computer without a video card for 3 months already and can't wait as long as them.
  • Pros: When it works it works great
  • Cons: Shuts down intermittently. I sent it in to Asus for warranty service 2x with no trouble found. They did not let it run long enough to shutdown. After, they twice agreed via phone calls to service it again but they would provide a loaner. Unfortunately after 3 months they continue not to have a lo...

It was great until it died

michael n., Newegg
26 July 2013
  • Pros: The first day I installed it along with my brand new ASUS M5A99FX mobo, I salivating to play all my steam summer sale games, and for that first five hours it was glorious. Thing stays cool, it's bulky but this was a fresh build for me so I didn't mind.
  • Cons: I went to boot the brand new p.c. the second day andddd.. no signal to the monitor.. I had no changed nor moved anything, so I was noticeably frustrated. Surely asus could not let me down. I have an asus monitor, asus mobo, asus gpu.. heck I was even looking up my solutions on my asus laptop. Ala...

Very Disappointing

jtm e., Newegg
6 July 2013
  • Summary: i guess i will try nvidia. I have used ATI/AMD since Radeon 4850as well
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: AMDs drivers do not work. The card itself seems fine but the buggy drivers cause so many crashes i cant even play a game or watch a movie. Card works great in safe mode w CC uninstalled tho.

Pretty Big Card

Thomas G., Newegg
23 May 2013
  • Summary: Am disappointed I could not get it installed.
  • Pros: Looks great, arrived quickly. nice packaging.
  • Cons: Very Large. Did not fit into my 3 year old Gateway and had to return it. Probably a great product, but did never got it installed because of the size. I played with the internal wiring on the Gateway, trying to make it work, but it was not possible.

ASUS 7850 open box

Madelynn L., Newegg
24 October 2012
  • Summary: I won't buy from Newegg again under these circumstances. It is said that the equipment is tested before leaving the store, but i don't think this one was. I went to an electronic store and bought a new card that cost $10 more than the Newegg price and it works perfectly.
  • Pros: the product arrived in a decent amount of time.
  • Cons: I purchased an Openbox ASUS 7850 video card. Purchased a new power supply. Video card required installing new card, monitor not working, uninstalling, to check to make sure machine was working properly - old card works. I spent 3hours trying to get the new card to work with my PC, uninstalling, r...

Not so - Great Video Card for Gaming

T. Arnett, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately I need to update my review on the video card. It worked great for about 6 weeks and then I started getting lock-ups and display driver has stopped responding. I spent weeks trying uninstalling and reinstalling the catalyst control center and drivers.

Meh

Mike L., Newegg
22 September 2012
  • Summary: Ran great for the first two weeks, then the problems started happening. Was in the middle of a game and the screen goes blank without any warning. I tried a different monitor to see if that was a problem but it wasn't.
  • Pros: Easy to install, runs great, looks nice!
  • Cons: Died only two weeks after purchasing this from Newegg
