Fast, Solid

E. Burke, Amazon
8 June 2011
  • Summary: Really enjoying this card - runs everything I've thrown at it at 2560x1440 resolution without breaking a sweat. The extra cooling is great - other GPUs I've owned have started to glitch out after extended periods of high load (despite good case airflow), but not this one. I haven't seen temps exceed 60C at full load.

Great GPU

Richard koeder, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great deal selling at a price of used GPU's with a 30 day warranty ,these cards were originally given a 5 year warranty and selling new for over $600.00 dollars. They are extremely well made and totally redesigned from the Radeon reference, I also have a XFX HD Radeon 6870 and it is no comparison to this Card the Engineering design is truly awesome.

Acceptably fast and moderately cool and quiet

TreadHead, Amazon
8 June 2011
  • Summary: I got this card to run more graphic (texture) intensive games- Rage among others. Reviews I read said essentially "this card can take anything you throw at it." I have found this to be true. I am running an AMD Phenom II x4 955 chip at 32 MHz (125w CPU) with 16 Gbs of Kingston & Corsair 800 MHz DDR3 SDRAM. A 2 TB WD Black hard drive with a 650 Watt Corsair power supply. A PassMark test gave this computer an average of 2.75 stars.

quiet and powerful

James King, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using this video card for about 8 months now and it still works amazingly. It is a very quiet card, not once have I heard the fan. I've been able to play games like Skyrim, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Battlefield 3 at 1920 x 1080 with HIGH graphics settings. The frame rates have always been GREAT.

A great upgrade for my Early 2008 Mac Pro

Phil Rosenthal, Amazon
8 June 2011
  • Summary: My Mac Pro was starting to feel slow when driving my dual 30" screens, compared to the snappiness of my newer MacBook Pro. On a hunch that it was simply the graphics card holding me back, I bought this, and a power cable PCIe PCI-e Power Cable for Mac G5 nVidia ATI Video Card - High Quality ...

Great card.

Sithis, Amazon
8 June 2011
  • Summary: The card is very powerful for a mid-priced piece of hardware. It eats up whatever you throw at it. Personally, my outdated CPU is bottlenecking it, but otherwise it's performing admirably well. It is however very large and I had to do some rewiring on my mobo to seat it correctly. It's somewhere around nine inches, so make sure you have enough space. It also requires two empty slots on the back of your PC. I'm more than pleased.

Amazing quality, when you get the right one!

oopsies, Amazon

  • Summary: When you hold this card in your hands, you know that you're getting a well built product. Unfortunately I had to go through 2 RMA's to get the "right" card. The first one was DOA, card would crash as Windows 7 64-bit loaded up. The second card was great.. except one of the fans were making horrible clicking noises. Third one works like a charm!..

  • Conclusion: Met de Hawk heb je een zeer complete kaart in huis, die een betere koeler heeft en net wat betere prestaties dan het referencemodel.
