Summary: I purchased this card in tandem with a new AMD X4 955 BE CPU and MSI 890GXM motherboard. Unfortunately, the card has serious issues with stability; at least under Windows 7 64-bit Professional. A quick search on Google will confirm that many people are having problems. I called ATI/AMD and the tech support person told me they're aware that the card has problems (fast lines over the screen, system freezes and Windows 7 restarts the driver, and in 3-D games spontaneous...
Summary: I had high hopes for this card. Unfortunately, I couldn't use it at all because the drivers ATI uses, Catalyst drivers, will not install in Windows 64bit. After trying repeatedly for hours, I searched online and found the problem to be common and widespread. Nvidia, on the other hand, worked smoothly with no problems whatsoever. I exchanged this card for an Nvidia GTX260 and could not be happier.
Summary: I ran GPU-Z to check the card after hearing about the BIOS issue on some of the Sapphire vapor-x cards and I had a bad one only shows 720 of the 800 Stream Processing Units it's suppose to have. I don't have a USB flash drive to fix the BIOS according to the Sapphire web site. I opened a tech support ticket told them I don't have a USB drive and asked if there was another solution in response they just directed me to the site again for instructions to flash the bios with...

Excerpt: Worked excellent for 24 hours... More than heats on simplistic games like, League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Diablo 2 etc. I in no way overclocked this card, yet I did set up the software from ATI that came with the video card. But I have had 17 hardware failures due to undesirable overclocking and I haven't even touched the computer software. This is ridiculous, I just built this machine Saturday evening.

Excerpt: Heard they were fantastic, and they are pretty searching. DOA I am a happy longtime nVidia/EVGA owner, I thought I would give this a try in crossfire to compare with my GTX480. Being also a longtime AMD owner/builder I expected their ATI acquisition to strengthen overall performance and chipset/driver quality. Not happy.I RMA'd so I'll give it one far more shot.
Excerpt: This card runs quite properly when it works. It doesn't work very frequently. I purchased the gpu, and the driver was crashing randomly, so I was told to flash a new bios by the manufacture. This crashed and broke my gpu so I had to RMA it. This costed me ุ dollars. My new gpu comes and I have the identical problem, and I'm being told to send it back once again. I borrowed a pals GeForce 8600GT and it worked superior than this GPU.
Excerpt: Ummm.... It seems like a good investment, but appear at Cons Nicely this is the 1st time I have ever given anything 1 egg. Proper out of the box this thing didn't work crashing my technique even on default settings, when it doesn't crash my pc entirely the card crashes by itself. I will never ever obtain a Sapphire product again. I have an XFX HD 4650 that works superior than this.
Excerpt: Decent 5770. Sapphire just contacted me demanding I supply copies of my invoices or packing slips for every single of my seven Sapphire cards ƒ 6950s, four 5770s and 1 5450) as well as pull each card from my systems and photograph them front and back. Oh and I have to do all this in a email that is smaller than 1 MB..
