XFX ATI Radeon HD 5870

by GeneBat, Amazon
2 December 2012
  • 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.

Still a great card after three years - a classic

Eli J., Newegg
20 September 2012
  • Summary: This card is a classic, a workhorse, even after three years. I just replaced it with a 7870 today and it still outperforms nearly everything in the market under $200. I have loved owning this card and I only gave it up because I got such a great deal on the 7870 and I can sell this one.
  • Pros: Quiet, plays most games at 1920x1080 at High Quality, reasonable TDP power use
  • Cons: None

Runs everything I play beautifully.

Mamoon F., Newegg
31 July 2012
  • Summary: This card runs fine with Antec bp 550 watt with 22 and 25 amps on the 12v rails. i have yet to feel any wierdness from my computer due to power shortages of any kind. Ran this gpu 100% load in several games so not really a power hungry card for the kind of performance you are getting.
  • Pros: Wow!! Great card compared to my old 9800gt 1gb. Plays everything i need at excellent framerates most maxed out. nfs most wanted, medeval 2 total war, and bfbc2 with this card plays at 60+ with high settings (shadows turned low) 4xAA and 4x filtering. WEI rates this card 7.8 Cant hear the fan till...
  • Cons: Runs hot under load to my liking temps hit 85c in my case with a fan blowing air directly in front of the gpu. Could b fixed with raising the fan speed on the card some but the fan turned up high sounds like any other fan turned up high: annoying as hell. DRIVERS are garbage!! first time ati card...

Excellent quality

Marko P., Newegg
17 July 2012
  • Summary: XFX customer support is excellent as well. Their service representative was very friendly and knowledgeable. I'm buying XFX from now on.
  • Pros: Very durable, excellent-performing card. Last night, my water-cooled PC lost video output and when I started taking the PC apart to check it out, I noticed coolant on top of the video card below one of the water tubes. I took the video card apart and dried it with a hair dryer and vacuum cleaner ...

Poor Quality

Sean S., Newegg
23 April 2012
  • Summary: This was my first and last use of cards made by XFX, i probably won't even buy another AMD-based card for a long time. I loved the specs on this card, but quality control needs to be used.
  • Pros: High clock speeds, does well when its working
  • Cons: Poor driver compatibility with standard drivers. From day 1 this card had issues when running basic 2D applications like my windows desktop. XFX tech staff worked with me but never resolved the issues. Card ran at decent temps, and actually seemed to do better at high temps. I'm guessing the card...

NEVER AGAIN WILL I BUY ATI/AMD PRODUCTS

Philip H., Newegg
17 October 2011
  • Summary: I had always been an Nvidia customer. I've owned a GeForce 2, a 7600 GT, a 9800 GTX+, multiple GTX 470s, and a 520 GT. I've never had any issues with any of my Nvidia cards. This XFX card was on sale a few months back and I decided to purchase it for a friend's birthday.
  • Pros: Fast card...when it works.
  • Cons: This card keeps freezing my computer while gaming (SC2). I've updated all the drivers and it continues to freeze during gameplay. It is extremely frustrating to be in the middle of an online match and suddenly freezing, forcing me to hard restart the computer. I had ZERO problems when I was using...
