Summary: The first card Amazon sent was difficult to make it through a complete boot without receiving a blue screen. Even once the system was up and running it might be minutes or it might be hours but never fail the computer had a hard time going more than a day without hanging at a blue screen.
2 cards, both fail (update: third time's the charm)

Summary: I was excited to upgrade from my 4850 and purchased this card as a replacement. Never had any issues with the 4850, but this card had issues within 10 minutes after startup. Initially everything was fine, then I launched BF3, which ran beautifully on the highest settings for few minutes before suddenly freezing. From then on, the thing would not work correctly. Even just using desktop apps or watching videos, it would start to glitch out.
Summary: After seeing the tempting rebate-based price of $245, I ordered a pair of these cards. I was attracted by their better price/performance over Nvidias and they were also reputed to run cooler. I also wanted to experiment with multiple monitors which The AMD Eyefinity system appears to do much better than their competition. I'm awaiting the delivery of a DP port adapter before I can try this and may update this review later with the results.
Summary: OK, I got this card from Warehouse Deals. It's exactly as pictured which is exactly what I wanted. I installed the card and all seemed to work as expected. Loaded the latest drivers and such. I started playing some games and I could see some differences but...well how about a list? My comparison is my previous GTX 460 768MB card. Assassin's Creed Revelations - This game actually ran well and I could see a vast improvement, especially at higher detail levels.
