Probably better to get a 2gb card now adays, but still a great card
20 November 2013
Summary: Just an inconic card. requires 150 watts of power and crossfires like a champ. dollar for dollar this was the best gaming GPU from 2011-2012. Now its been replaced by the 7870 2gb. There is a 2gb version of this card, (this isnt it), that is as timeless as the next gen 7870 2gb.
Summary: Excellent product! With that video card I'm enjoying the lastest games with high graphics! I was hoping to actualice my entire computer but after installing the radeon HD 6870 I decided to not actualice my processor, motherboard and RAM yet because with my actual components the performance is excellent!
Great card! Crossfire with 6850 should run any game at full settings!

Summary: I am adding this board in as the primary GPU in my 4 year old dual E5472 Xeon Z7S-WS based workstation. It will be in a crossfire array with a 6850 which I am currently using. I expect the array will run any and all games at pretty much highest settings possible with great frame rates. The two 9800+ GTX's will be put into an old 885 Opteron workstation in SLI, replacing an HD 3650 video card. It should give me a backup gaming/work machine for my girlfriend or guests.
