Sapphire HD7850 GDDR5 Graphics Card (1GB); does what it says on the tin.

Summary: No computer expert but my son wanted to play PlanetSide2 which meant upgrading the screen, PSU and graphics card. Screen and card was quite easy as both were recommended by a gaming magazine. However trying to work out what size (wattage) PSU I then needed was more problematic. Once all fitted, all has been fine.
Summary: First of all let me say, Ignore people telling you to spend 300-400 on cards. And ignore people telling you you should be playing at 60fps. That's rubbish, we watch films at 24fps and they are fine to us. So if you are above that gaming, you wont tell the difference between that and 60fps. With that said, this card (paired with my i5) has blisteres any game that I have thrown at it. Plays everything I have tried on ultra, even with AA on.
Summary: I purchased as a replacement for my old HD 5770 and I can't fault this card. Tested with Bioshock Infinite, Assassin's Creed 3, Tomb Raider and Batman Arkham City on highest graphics settings at 1080p and didn't even break a sweat, rarely dipping below 30 fps, frequently floating around the 40's and occasionally hitting 50.
Summary: I bought this to include it in my first PC build and it is a great piece of hardware! I've had my PC up and running for a couple of months now and this card is running perfect, it doesn't get too hot and churns out great looking games. Crysis 2, BF3, Metro 2033 have all run at max settings with decent fps, but of course as you lower the graphical settings the performance only improves. You won't struggle to make games look good with this card!
Summary: Love it, it can over clock to the stock performance of a HD 7870 if not a bit more and that's without adjusting voltage (not recommended for beginners). However for pure over cautiousness apart from benchmarking I've kept it at stock levels and I still play all games on Ultra settings. Stock clocks I got 75 fps on Heaven Benchmark and over clocked (no voltage increase) I scored 84 fps. Bang for buck this is one of the best if not the best cards around.
Summary: Very fast delivery and reliable services, the sapphire installed within minutes of placing the installation disk and can play all my games (fallout 3, Skyrim, Arma 2, GTA IV, supreme commander 1&FA) on ULTRA SETTINGS! the quality is just amazing, i Highly recommend this product if you are planning on pc gaming.
