Summary: I got my first one on Newegg for $399 (on sale) in 2009, I still have it in my Rig and am running Titanfall on very high settings. I got my second from Amazon for half, maybe less, in 2013 for Xfire. However, I couldn't get them to play well together.
Summary: First, let me point out that so far the only 1 star review for this card is from someone who COULDN'T GET ONE! That says more about this card than the 5 star reviews does! I love this card. It is very quiet, not like the last card I had (a BFG Nvidia 6800GT).
2 cards running 6 LCD's they work great in Alienware
G review, Amazon
11 December 2009
Summary: These two cards are working 6 LCD's, Eyefinity and also with a i7 930 ,over clocked 2.80 to 3.20 and using 2 Display port (ACTIVE) adapters sold separately each $107.00 and separate usb power supply I added ,card specs says you don't need it but ,I wanted it so for 4 months no problems with cards...
Summary: So far this card has worked great. I had read about all the nightmares with installing it, but it went smooth and easy. Once installed Win7 recognized it and I installed the drivers from the CD. Then went to ATI web page and downloaded the newest ones.
Summary: Recently upgraded to the 5870 from an 8800GT. This is my first ATI card as I was previously convinced that Nvidia were the kings. Oh how times have changed. The benchmarks for this card pretty much blow away anything Nvidia has (not to mention the added benefit of low heat and low power...
Summary: Excellent video card, especially if you want to run games at high resolutions and graphic settings. I used to use a GTX280 and it put out a lot of heat. This runs quite cool in comparison. They did a lot of work on throttling back the chip when it doesn't need the power and it shows.
Summary: i was lucky..after searching for 2 weeks I located an open box at at a fry's in San Diego ..They said the card was tested on return ..I hate buying open box items.So I really don't know why the card was returned ...OK ..the card is 10.5 inches long so it runs past the length of the mobo.
