Summary: This is not the most expensive graphics card on the market, but I had a stock g/c and a $40 g/c before this and they couldn't hang when I wanted to play skyrim on my PC. I put this in and it did the job amazingly for about 30 secs before it shut down the power supply. So if you decide to upgrade to this then you will also have to upgrade your power supply.
Summary: I bought this as the last video card upgrade for my Mac Pro early 2008 model. I've had it for well over a year now and its been working great. I have three monitors hooked up to it and never had any issues with it. For my setup however it does require separate internal power cables to be hooked to the mother board to get it to work. Did my research and haven't regretted the purchase.
Summary: This card was such a great purchase. It's paired with an FX-4100 CPU not overclocked, 8g memory, 1 tb hardrive. I can play most titles at 40+ FPS almost highest settings on the most graphic laden titles. I can play Crysis 3 35-45fps 1080p at high spec settings.There are far more expensive set-ups out there but great card for the money. Very surprising I just got battlefield 4 and can play on high settings with 60fps consistently. It's even playable on Ultra around 45fps.
Summary: I have two of these and they run exactly as they should. Haven't had any issues yet. The gpu is wide and will take up two "spaces" as most high end gpu's do. Also I recommend installing all of the most recent updates for the device.
Summary: I bought this card this past summer, and I am still very impressed by it. I've had no issues at all with the card. I have had to reinstall the driver twice, but that's not Sapphire's fault. This card is quiet, performs well, and is easy to overclock with Catalyst Control Center. Having lived with it for nine months, I can definitely say that at the time I bought it, I couldn't have gotten a better card for the price.
Summary: i have one of these already in my rig got a 2nd one for crossfire but it arrived not working properly... bsod atikmpeg.sys error adding some photos of what i encountered in the photos section under G Man
