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: 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.
Summary: The moment I plugged this video card in and turned on my computer I could tell a really big difference. I had been using the built in ability of the Asus Z77 motherboard along with the Intel I7 2600K to provide graphics. Out of the box, the MSI Radeon HD 6850 gave me a 7.8 graphics score on both graphics tests. Simply remarkable card for the money, and it runs very cool compared to my old 5770 I used to own. Very highly recommended.
Summary: Just bought this card about a week ago at a local retail place. I wanted a crossfire ready card which this one is. I've been waiting for PC hardware graphics to drop in price and jump in performance. Been wanting to get back into Microsoft's Flight Sim, yet the last time I tried FSX my PC's performance was dismal. Not anymore!...this card along with some other upgrading allows me to run with the rest of them....yeeeehawwww!
