Summary: Okay, box is biiig, like a PS3 Slim box lol.. the card is hughe compared to my old radeon 6670, the improvement i can even notice the improvement when windows starts takes like 15 sec now D: ..!! took the old card, placed the new one real quick even its big it can be plugged easily, box has dvi to vga converter, SLI band, and a 1x6 converter cable too, so! after putting everything on the board turned it on. it installed the software by itself o.O wth..?
Summary: I bought this mainly for bitcoin mining. Using bitminter's java client, I get about 220 mh/s with stock clocks. Easily overclockable with MSI's suite, stable until about 1020 MHz, as opposed to the stock 925 MHz. Overclocking/underclocking memory doesn't seem to have an effect on stability. Also, plays skyrim at ultra everything plus gfx enhancement mods at full framerate. Definitely worth the $150~ I paid. I would recommend this card to any budget gamer.
Summary: Not much to report - bought this graphic card to crossfire with the same card I already had for some time. Card worked fine and crossfire made a real difference. Even though this card is not the latest performer, it still provides great performance for the money!
Summary: After reading the reviews on this product I decided to up grade to the MSI 6850 Cyclone card. I replaced my Radeon HD4850 in my Gateway FX6800-01e intel-i7 920 -2.6,PS 450W 6g memory. The swap when without any problems. The MSI card was up and running with in 30 minutes.The MSI Cyclone Hd6850 PE/OC is rated about twice the speed of my HD4850 so that is why I upgraded, also that the old card is old (2008) I believe.
Summary: Runs Starcraft 2 Wings of Liberty and the Beta Heart of the Swarm well. Everything on ultra with around 90 fps. The system I am using also includes a i5 3750k, Maximus V Gene motherboard, and 8gb DDR3 Corsair 2133mhz ram.
Summary: This is a monster. Although its almost over a year old, it kills any game in its path. I overclocked it a bit more higher and this beauty gives me 50-60 fps all ultra on far cry 3 and almost 80 fps on bf3 (ultra as well) Great card for its price. i play on 1600*900 monitor so this card is perfect. Even on a 1080p monitor, i mean pretty sure the fps will be over 40 easily when overclocked.
Summary: I skeptically made this purchase as I had never used an MSI product before. Having installed and used it, I have two words...blown away!!! Pros: Quiet fan and it fit my Coolermaster case. Easy to install...practically hassle free.
