Good cards in 4 way crossfire not so much on there own
19 March 2013
Summary: bought for mining replacement There great cards do very well still on most games on 4 way crossfire not very good on there own anymore. O and the big one BUY FANS ahead of time and you will most likely have to mod the fan to make it fit properly or if you have the life time warranty the oc it to hell.
Summary: Got this card as second Radeon HD 5870 card to use in crossfire configuration. Paired together provides very good gameplay experience even compared to modern graphics cards in terms of FPS and picture quality. Fan could be loud at the time of full load, but virtually silent when idle.
Summary: Still a smoking hot video card for the PC, if you can find one at the right price like I did. Most if not all games still use Direct X 10 and 11 so; this card rocks. It was the hottest card on the market when it first came out so, its a big bargain now if you can find one. Definitely a Get It.
Summary: Plenty of horsepower under the hood with this card. Being the ZNF9 reference card, it clocks amazing though not as much in crossfire. Installed without a hitch and is running superbly. I did have to upgrade my PSU, but I knew this going in. Coupled with an AC Accelero Extreme 5870 VGA cooler this baby never goes above 55c even in X-Fire. There is plenty of mileage left in these cards for new games. XFX FTW!!!
Summary: Very satisfied and impressed with my 5870XFX. This card performs very well. I really don't have a con but if you really want one, this card is about 10 3/4" in length. That's it. If you want a smaller card you will sacrifice performance e.g. 5770. Why do that. Look no further. I was thinking getting another 5870 but I decided not to. On COD4, my fps is always constant 125. I changed the default settings com_maxfps 90 to com_maxfps 125. On HAWX 2 Max FPS 192 avg. 68.
Summary: What more needs to be said ... Item was defective out of the box !!! No fault of amazon at all and they quickly got the item returned at no charge to me and promptly refunded my money ! A+++ to amazon !
