Great dx10 cards, alot of gpu for the money. 190watt power draw@full load
8 August 2011
Summary: These cards work really well and I've never had any driver issues with xp or win7. Downside is the power draw which is about 190watts at full load, so just make sure your psu is up for it especially when crossfiring. The games I play are dx9 so I really don't need dx11 cards. My gaming friends are always shocked when they find out I'm running 4890's in quadfire ftw.
Great card even for todays standards, but a little outdated.

Summary: Great card for the price. I bought one when it was brand new a few years back and it was top of the line. I recently purchased another to run the two cards in crossfire for even better performance. This card stands its ground against most of the hd5000 series and some of the lower to mid end hd6000 cards also, but lacks DX11 support that will be utilized in upcoming game titles.
Summary: This card is an excellent and very fast card for being a 4_series card. The card itself isnt crap and I feel sorry for Olddirty 78 recieving a bunk card, but if it had worked for you then you would be able to experience its capabilities for yourself. I wish you would had purchased the card from me therefore, you would have gotten a full refund and maybe not left such harsh feedback about about your shopping experience when you should be leaving a rating on the card...
Summary: The video card is awesome. Being one of the highest in the radeon 4000 series, it's performance is very great. The only complaint I have about it is the heat. It gives off a lot of heat compared to cards of its class. The video card works very well though, it can play most, if not all, games on high. The heat is the only thing.
Summary: I have to in crossfire and get from 150 to 200 fps in resident evil 5 on max. crysis warhead enthusiast settings I get 60 fps. I pretty much demolish all games in crossfire but, easily get above 60 fps with just one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Listen the only thing better is the new 5850 but, at twice the cost of a used vaporx 4890 it isn't worth it. Find two 4890's for less than a 5850 and wait for 6xxx series.
Summary: excellent card, awesome performance!! upgrade from gts250, yes, now i'm in the "red-side" !! Pro: Great performence easy instalation Cool, 60°C full Load, 45°C Idle no expensive for performence, worth any nickel!!! Great overcklock. Cons: Loud Fan, but keep the card very cool! Driver is no friendly like Nvidia Drivers.
Summary: Ok well this a great card to say the least. It runs on PCI-E2.0 yet I have a 1.0 motherboard and everything runs great! I could not imagine if I had a 2.0 motherboard than I could play Crisis totally maxed! Yes this card is a beat if you want to play wow full graphics this will work if you want to play half-life 2 maxed this will work. If you want to play games like universe at war maxed this will work.
