Summary: This is still a pretty good video card, I bought it a year ago as a second card for my latest build. The cooler is especially nice, always kept the temps down in the 30s idle and mid 40s during full load.
Summary: For the price/performance, this is a great card. However, it is a power hog compared to the 7850. Do yourself a favor, spend the extra cash and go for that. You will be future proofing yourself.
Summary: I replaced my 2x Radeon HD 5950's with this. The twin cards were just producing too much heat and would cause my PC to shut down. Bought this card to replace it and I'm getting much better performance. Playing Skyrim on Ultra with no drop in frame rate.
