Summary: This card is silent and a great card. I saw other complaints in the ratings so I was initially hesitant but I've now been rinning this vid card for a month in a half or so and haven't had any issues. I'm also able to run most games on max on my 1600x900 monitor. I highly recommend this vid card!
Summary: Games run smooth, like raedeon-7850 reference specs. When running 3d-games, subtle horizontal lines flicker accross the screen (you can see it in the sky). There are threads about this being an issue due to manufacturer overclocking the card, and many users were able to get a clean screen by manually underclocking memory speed (mostly 900mhz), but that cause my card to crash a lot, so I couldn't fix it.
Summary: I also have a 560ti by the other company. Both are about the same amount of money, but the 7850 doesnt seem to handle games as well. I can look at stats on the internet all day & I can also run benchmarks until I'm blue in the face, but no test is as good as playing your favorite game and experiencing the power of each card individually. My 560ti runs my game effortlessly while I see some lagging with the 7850 @ stock speeds.
Summary: You get what you pay for. This is a good graphic card. Its an upgrade to my 4890 and I definitely see a difference in my games. Just want to let all those VGA people know that you will encounter some problems if you try to use your VGA cable with this card. You will see that your screen flickers. The fix to this after doing some extensive research is that, this card works with DVI and HDMI not VGA. Other than that, no problem.
Summary: I bought this card to upgrade my GPU in my SG07B box. I get great performance out of my current games and installation was pretty much a breeze. I highly recommend for people that dont want to break the bank for a new card yet have some power under the hood ;)
Pros: quiet, powerful and fits well in SFF cases. Horizontal power connector was a must.
Summary: I bought this card in June of '13 to pair with another Radeon 7850, and have been quite pleased, especially with the improvements brought by the recent AMD 13.8 driver patch. While every card is different I am not able to clock this card quite as high as my Diamond Reference 7850, but I don't have the need for such high clocks with Crossfire anyways. I am able to run both cards in crossfire (stable) at 1075 core 1300 Memory.
