Summary: Im still using this card for gaming and everything else. I really want to upgrade but now i am stuck waiting for the new amd line to come out hopefully soon. I certainly wouldnt buy one of these now. I have been using mine for 4 years 10+ a day and its still going.
Summary: Its truly a great card ,with pots of features and blazing fast speed than even some of the costliest NVIDIA cards .Only issue with this card is needs a high PSU SMPS (min 600W) and runs very hot even at idle except that even some of the newest (2011) NVIDIA cards are still no match to it .You...

Summary: I probably got a flaky copy in the first place, but the system hung with a frozen screen after less than five hours of non-intense usage. I originally installed the card taking electrostatic precautions. On reboot the MLB LEDs showed the system hanging on VGA.
Summary: Great frame rates without lagging. Have Unreal 3 video settings all the way up and it doesn't hiccup. It is definitely better than my Crossfired HD 3870s (512 MB x 2) even though the gpu clock is @ 775 MHz (as opposed to 800 MHz from the 3870s).
Summary: Decent video card for the money. Had no issues with the installation. It runs well and was able to run games smoothly. Importantly, it runs quietly. The only issue people may have is that it is not a small video card and I was barely able to fit it in to my Dell Studio Desktop.
I purchased this card for a bleeding edge gaming computer I

Summary: made. I will not comment on the performance as others have done that. Other: Pro's - Well . . . extremely high performance and easily configurable through the Catalyst Utility with many options. All the options you could want. Con's - Extremely long. Carefully pick your box.
Summary: When it comes to bang for your buck, you can't beat this card. The thing is a powerhouse. You can run just about any game out there in high resolution (1600x1050) at wonderful quality settings and still get a nice frame rate. This Sapphire card is built very nicely too.
