Summary: I've been running this card in my win 7 64bit system for about a month now without any problems. The hd 4890 runs at stock speeds of 850Mhz core clock and 975Mhz Memory. However, I'm running my card with a mild manual overclock speed of 900Mhz core/1000Mhz Mem. Since I'm running my monitor at its native resolution of 1920x1200, the 1gb ddr5 ram on the video card helps a lot when I play games.
Try Not To Overpay, Or Buy Newer with a Warranty and Updated Software
7 September 2011
Summary: I persoanlly love the used one I bought. Plays Battlefield 2 Bad Company with no problems. Even with tank fire and massive explosions. Great with a 1680 x 1050 Resolution monitor. Comes with a changeable fan setting if you decide you want to overclock. (I haven't needed to.) Try not to overpay, as they have newer cards out now with updated software.
Summary: I really like this card for the price. Has 1 GB memory, 256 Bit, and can be overclocked past factory with thermal paste added is still at around 60 degrees. It was a good improvement over the 9500gt that it replaced. Plays at 1680 x 1050 resolution with graphical settings maxed. Plays Battlefield 2 BadCompany with no freezes, pauses even during heavy firefights multiplayer (32). Bought used for 75$. - Only downside is no warranty.
Summary: HD4890 ensures an outstanding (very high settings, AA filter) performance to all games, including Crysis and GTAIV. Working IDDLE @60ºC, designing a good cooling is recommended (as expected in high-end hardware). Extreme performance without spending buckets of money, that's what I mean. I'm very satisfied, all the HD48XX are impressing, but HD4890 is the amazing one. Enjoy!
Summary: This card is a fairly recent card. Released just before the launch of ATI's new 5800 series. It is fast and at $200 it very affordable for a card of this power. It easily plays Street Fighter 4 at max resolution with all the bells and whistles cranked up. It also plays WoW at max everything easily. It does not stop me from dcing in Onyxia 25 in Phase 2 when all the whelps come out but I am not sure what is causing that problem anyway.
Summary: VERY FAST, GOOD OVERCLOCKER BEST PRICE TO PERFORMANCE YOU CAN FIND. ATI IS HARD TO BEAT WITH GREAT SELECTION OF EXTRAS AND EASY INSTALLATION, THIS IS BY FAR THERE BEST ALL ROUND CARD FOR THE AVERAGE CONSUMER.
Summary: This is just the graphics card I was looking for when considering my next computer upgrade. The card has 1gb of GDDR5 memory and it is blazing fast with 800 stream processors. This version from MSI is factory clocked at 880mhz core clock and easily has more room to overclock. Nice playing Crysis Warhead at 2048 x 1152 resolution.
Summary: Great Graphic card, the fastest you can get on the market besides 2x crossfire or SLI cards. Runs great, finally I can playt whatever I want. ATI beats the hell out of NVIDIA. Cheaper and better. My recommendation of the year.
