Summary: For an older computer that only accepts PCI 2.0 cards, this is a great higher end video card. Purchased for a teenager, he was totally satisfied with the performance improvement. Now able to run programs that would not work with a 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5450. Short of buying an new computer that supports PCI 3.0 cards, this was a cost effective solution.
Summary: I needed to upgrade my pc and after looking at the reviews for several cards chose this one. I don't do gaming but instead do photography work and want to start editing recorded video. I was amazed how much better my older LCD screen looked by just adding a video card. It is quite customizable but I have not yet gotten into the various different settings, for what I need it for I'm not sure I have to....maybe later.
Summary: I have been a faithful customer of ATI. This would be my fifth Display card by the company , with one exception a few years back where I selected Nvidea. The card is straight forward to install and configure , Nice vibrant colors , video clips look fantastic. I am not much into gaming , apart from Microsoft Flight Simulator which was very smooth and fast. Very good Video card and well worth the money I paid for. For my use , it is perfect and just the right price.
Summary: The HD 5000 series is a very formidable one. The 5900($600) is an epic card in both performance and size(it's a foot long!) the 5770 is a bit smaller and is just about as epic. For 1/4 of the cost you are not going to get Crysis to run 1920x1200 with 4xAA at a very stable rate. Maximum PC benchmarked the card and here were the results(the HIS version): HAWX: 41fps Far Cry/Action: 38fps Far Cry/Ranch Long: 43fps Crysis/DX10: 17fps STALKER: Clear Skies: 19fps Those...
Summary: Just Recently bought mine from another site. There were rumors of difficulties with the crossfire on the Gig model so thought I'd just stay with one for now. So far I am thouroughly impressed with the card, even with the lack of Dx11 uses these days, this card puts up some excellent graphics. The description doesn't say but it is Eye-finity supported and may try that after testing the crossfire.
