Summary: I had originally planned on purchasing the Sapphire version of this card, but it mysteriously disappeared w/o warning within 40 minutes as an amazon.com "in stock" product. Actually, I am glad it did; due to fact I bought this Gigabyte card @ $169.99 *new* from newegg. Let's dive into this fantastic card. Included in the Gigabyte box is one dual 4 pin molex to 6 pin adapter in case your power supply does not have a 6 pin PCI-E connector.
Summary: Max score on windows benchmark. I can run streaming software, watch my stream on twitch.tv, record the stream to a hard drive, play World of Warcraft and play YouTube music videos playlists as my stream jukebox all at the same time flawlessly. Plus I had my 6770 card for 4-5 years and that one still performed well. In other words I am comfortable with the brand.
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: 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.
