Summary: Purchased two of these cards roughly a month apart to run crossfire. They run as a single unit (not crossfire) exceptionally well and are easily overclocked via Catalyst. I was able to unlock the shaders on one of the cards to see what types of performance I could get out of it and I was quite pleasantly surprised. In terms of bang for the buck... this card provided what I think is the best performance for money ratio.
Summary: Fyi on those interested in the price on this card, be aware that this card is not quiet. It is quite loud even when viewing flash or video on youtube and is even more so in a game. I have it in a system with a Fractal XL case, and this card is significantly louder then the two 4850's in crossfire that I used to have in the system. Performance seems good though, but, the sound from it is rather disappointing.
Pros: Great performance
Cons: Very Loud, Can't find a way to use the included displayport > hdmi converter, none of the connectors or cables I try fit on the odd shaped hdmi connection.
