Great card, Lots of features

Jeffrey b., Newegg
8 July 2013
  • Summary: Nothing better for the money.
  • Pros: I bought this card locally from a guy who had not even installed it. In fact, I bought a pair of them from him for $120, sold the used one for $120 on an auction site and kept the new one. Wow, what a card for the money. Once you get the current ATI drivers, this card works well with anything thr...
  • Cons: The card is excellent, but ATI has a history of driver issues and this one is no exception. You MUST get the most current drivers or the BSOD will appear.

Bitcoin Mining

Kyle K., Newegg
9 August 2011
  • Summary: Similar results with both cards so its not a bad card. One did require an slight overvolt to get to 1035. I can't really tell you how good this card is for gaming as it seems my cpu is a bottleneck (2.5ghz AMD x2)
  • Pros: This card is one of the best cards for bitcoin mining. With a little work will do 330 mhash.
  • Cons: 330 mhash requires 1035 gpu clock speed. Card is extremely unstable at that speed and you can only do that with a dedicated rig. I could not get stable results in fur mark over about 950 gpu.
