Summary: I've had a wide range of video cards over the years mostly nvidia's last time I had an ati it was a 9800. This card is a performer and does really well with high end games, hd videos and the like. So for its core purpose and price I would have given it 5 of 5. Yet...
Summary: I had previously purchased the HSI equivalent and it had the same issues so I'm beginning to suspect it is something with the 7770 design, or possibly even the specific production run since they were purchased around the same time.
Pros: Excellent value, delivers solid frame rates in most games w/o having to sacrifice graphics detail. Low power consumption.
Cons: Very unstable. I bought this card for my wife and she will encounter either "VPU Recovery" warnings or random reboots every few hours. It seems to happen in waves, where the first one triggers several more that follow within minutes. I have changed the mobo, power supply, and case but nothing helps.
decend video card, bad tech support, watch out for the rebate

Summary: Bought this video on 5/3 when it had $10 mail in rebate. I sent in the rebate but used the different mailing address from the invoice and the rebate got rejected. The online rebate service center refused to accept my resubmition form saying it's because of Sapphire policy.
Summary: I really wish they would figure out the driver situation for these, not sure for how many years this has been a consistent issue for ATI but if this doesn't get resolved I can honestly say I will NEVER buy their product again.
Pros: Installed great, worked right away without issues. Runs my games on highest settings.
Cons: Well... I connected a second monitor to it and as soon as it came up my screens froze and couldn't do anything but power down and disconnect the second monitor. Then without a second monitor while streaming video I would get a quick freeze followed by "the device driver stopped and restored". Loo...
Summary: If anyone has an idea of what might be going on please dont be affraid to post a thought, or give me a good direction to travel in, cause I'm stuck right now.
Pros: Not many, at first i was excited!! I popped it in and bam I was running WoW at 50+fps in org, and SWTOR was running 40-50fps no problem grinding quests, and BF3 was the same 35-45fps no problems.
Cons: After a month and the new Ati/Amd driver update i can't even break 20fps when running in either of the games metioned above. Tried downloading the old patch, no luck. Went to Sapphires web page Downloaded their patch didn't improve, and now downloading the most recent patch again just to get my S...
Summary: Save your money. I purchased two of these card's for a Crossfire configuration and they are just NOT worth the money. They are struggling to play games on a High setting! There are cheaper card's out there which will do a much better job, while giving YOU value for money!
Summary: Ich hab mir diese Grafikkarte vor ziemlich genau 2 Jahren und 1 Monat gekauft. Und pünktlich nach Ablauf der Garantie passiert es, dass wenn sie nur ein bisschen unter Last läuft, der Bildschirm ein monochromes Bild zeigt und einfriert.
Gute Non Ultra Grafikkarte | Aber leider nach einer Woche defekt

Summary: Bei mir lief das neue Tomb Raider ohne TreeFX und Tesellierungen auf maximalen Details und 1080p auf 30 - 45 FPS. Also für diesen Preis ist die Grafikkarte wirklich gut. Skyrim: Max Details + 1080p [ 50 - 60 FPS ] Resident Evil 5: Max Details + 2x AA + 1080p DX10 [ 55 - 60 FPS ] Borderlands 2: Max...
Summary: vorher hatte ich eine "alte" Radeon 5770 und habe erhofft , mit dieser Karte käme der "grosse Schub" war aber nicht so, um den Schub zu erleben sollte man 50-70 Euro mehr bezahlen für eine Radeon 7850
