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: 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.
