Summary: Vista ULTIMATE-64 Q9550 8GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 (4 x 2G) 1066 Quad CF 2 x 3870x2 Antec TP Quatro 1000 2 x Maxtor 500GB Raid 0 22x LG DVD+/- writer w/ Light scribe MSI P45 Platinum HC Edition (RMA) Replaced: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Zalman CNPS9700NT
Pros: It's stupid fast. Don't need any other card with it but I do have it in CF with another one. All graphics flow like water. I have been gaming for a long time and often times during the game, because I upgraded from a different rig, I would expect the frames chap a bit in some parts(game parts w/ ...
Cons: For some people being huge is a problem.. I have a full tower so I say; "bring it!"
Summary: This card seems to be slightly faster than stock HD 4850, but only in games that support CrossfireX. Although Crysis doesn't take anywhere close to full advantage of this card, you can still use it.
Pros: Dual GPUs give excellent scaling at higher resolutions, fairly quiet.
Cons: Very very long, in my case it touches the hard drives! Runs fairly hot, about 80C, but well within the max specs (this hardware is designed to run at up to 105C). Since this is basically 2 3870s crossfired, any new game doesn't benefit from second GPU, eg. Far Cry 2 gives 26fps all maxed out on 1...
Pros: Pure power, Close to the 4870's at a lower price, Running 4 cards now possible by using only 2 slots. Used to be best bang for the buck vs the 4870's at th 209 price level - Read Below
Cons: BIG PRICE CON Game! I was going to buy 2 of the cards 2 weeks ago, but wanted to research the 4870's first. WOW that was a BIG mistake waiting 2 weeks!!!! Now Newegg is taking advantage of the upcomming holidays and instead of seeing a price decrease on these cards they pulled off a thirty dollar...
Summary: Overall it is tha best card I have ever owned. Newegg is one of the best online sites out there. I recommend everyone to check them first.
Pros: This video card runs like a dream. It stays cool in my antec 900 case. I have all settings oh max with no errors. I would recommend this card for anyone with a fixed income.
Cons: The only con that I can see is that some games do not see that it as two GPU processors on it. One other thing is that my windows only see 512mbs instead of the 1gb shared between the two processors.
Summary: revamped the thermal paste got me even lower temps, sys vist 64bit, 2 3870x2 cfx, raptor driver, msi k9a2 mb, 9950 phenom, thermaltake kandalf no WC don't need it not an OCer
Pros: wow, great product, just got my 2 of them up n runnin, a little trouble with driver setup but smooth and cool, and quiet, with a little artic silver it dropped the temps down even further than uping fan speeds w/RT was around 48c at 55% now idles at 38 w/artic silver applied
Pros: Well I've been doing some research, looking around at different forums and benchmarks I finally decided to buy this card as it appears to perform about as well as the 4xxx series cards in CF when AA comes into play. That is when this card is ran with another 3870 in a weird tri cf setup. The card...
Summary: running tri fire in vista xp won't recongnise, what a difference vista 64 made all 8 gigs recognized, and multi gpu's aswell, awsome the egg rocks thanks eli, gave me the $40 difference when i bought it a week ago for more, although i did promise to pick up another one, crossfire these big boys, for...
Pros: get them while you can for the price ya can't beet em
Cons: can't think of any runs cool w/RT 55% gets it around 48 idle 55 to 60 on load not a con but get vista 32 or 64 it will recongnize multi gpu with the 8.9 drivers couldn't get xp to do it? now it a whole new ballgame had tri cx fire but will soon have these in cfx
