Decent card - Horrible support

Brian C., Newegg
20 April 2014
  • Summary: Sadly, i think i will avoid XFX in the future.. I like the warranty, but the hassle of dealing with support, just isn't worth it...
  • Pros: Inexpensive. Runs most games, with a bit of tweaking of the video settings...
  • Cons: Cheap flimsy fan. I have had to contact XFX support to replace the cooler on this video card twice (I generally clean out my computer at least every other month). Which wouldn't be a problem, if support was any good. At least a week before you get any kind of response. The latest cooler they sent...

Decent mid-level card, good for an upgrade

Geoff Rose, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • Summary: Bought one of these back in mid-2010 while building my first PC from assembled parts. Performed reasonably well for most modern games (produced 2009-2011), but the highest graphical settings and most recent games could have stability issues. Easy to install, but very quickly there were problems.

User Review

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Not enough power for me. These things only have 400 processing units as a 5770. I wouldn't recommend it for serious gamers. Pick up a 5850 (1440 stream processing units) or crossfire 5770s (1600 stream processing units).
  • Pros: It is cheap. It doesn't overheat. It doesn't consume a lot of power. It would be great for a media center build.
  • Cons: Not really that good for gaming. Expect to play all games on the lowest setting and lower than 1080p resolution.

Adequate

Richard W., Newegg
27 October 2011
  • Summary: Tested this by replacing nearly identical Sapphire HD5670 -- but had to uninstall and reinstall Catalyst for it to function properly. This may be true with any card switch (unless it's identical -- switching one Sapphire HD 5670 for another requires no software work.
  • Pros: Low price with rebate Low power consumption No separate power line needed
  • Cons: Windows Experience Index 6.8 Gaming and 6.8 Graphics -- a tad slow

Day of days

Thomas D., Newegg
26 October 2011
  • Summary: when it works it does a fine job. just wondering what other issues im going to have down the road.
  • Pros: Played Oblivion, Civilization 5, on highest settings without any hiccups. doesnt seem to make much noise.
  • Cons: Well, well, well ive been though hell the last couple of days with this thing. was working fine till i started getting these "display driver has stopped and recovered" error messages. took a very long time and full of stress trying to figure what was the problem. i was so close to RMA this card. ...

Avoid Display Port if dual system

Jonathan H., Newegg
18 June 2011
  • Summary: That was the last straw. I'm not wasting any more weekend days on this junk. DisplayPORT is OFF my list of useful technology. Forget it. Can you believe it?!?! That a >>>USB<<< DisplayLINK adapter is WAY BETTER USER EXPERIENCE than the "fast" DisplayPORT.
  • Pros: Due to case constraints in the HP E9220Y (AMD quad core X910) I needed a single width card, so this fit. MUCH faster than bundled ATI HD4350. Windows 7 64bit Video "Experience" went from 4.something to 7.0. Uses way less processor power for video clips or Media Center. Runs lots of clips simultan...
  • Cons: DisplayPORT (DP) is really PAINFUL if you have two or more computers to switch between. I fought this off and on for months - up thru ATI CCC bundle 11.4, every time I either switched computers or came off of the idle Screensaver, DP would thrash the video for up to 30 seconds, flashing with Link...

Didn't work so I can't rate on the performance

Kuro570, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: I have no clue why but it just wont work, I meet the reqs and tested out with several other gpus I have. I will rate however for the sturdy packeging (although some bubble wrap around the card would've been nice) and keeps the card firm in place.

Meh

Jimmy J., Newegg
30 September 2010
  • Pros: This card performs well when it wants to. It gives an average of 100+ fps in CS:S, MW2, L4D2, SC2. Highest temp it ever gone to was probably 60C.
  • Cons: Lots of driver issues with Windows 7. I've been getting these artifact/blue screen crashes with the card. I've searched a long time for solution but can't find one that applies. I really have a hunch it's the bit of my os. People that ran 32bit win7 didn't have problems but 64bit win7 users have ...

Spoke Too Soon

Anonymous, Newegg
3 February 2010
  • Summary: Great card while it lasted. Newegg took care of me so all is well. In the end I opted for the MSI version rather than taking a chance on XFX again.
  • Pros: See previous review by Maul
  • Cons: Card only lasted 5 days, thereafter Windows 7 failed to recognize the card. Even took and old hard drive and did a fresh install to see if the card would be picked up, still no dice.
