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

  • Cons: a little bit of a budget breaker when i first got the card 6 months later was much cheaper ;)

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 ...

I Want Another!

Zac H., Newegg
24 July 2011
  • Summary: I would like to get another of the same make and model but they all seem to be over $300 and I got this one for much cheaper.
  • Pros: Very high preformance card. Runs pretty cool.
  • Cons: The fan is loud during games. Make sure you understand PSU's before you buy one for this card, it eats alot of power.

5870 XFX is Awesome!!!

Gustavo Samuel Zambrano, Amazon
7 May 2011
  • 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.

XFX, Who Knew?

Anonymous, Newegg
13 April 2011
  • Summary: This card is huge about 11 inches long and was such a hassle to install in my case, but then again, I do not have a really big case.
  • Pros: -Runs pretty decent temperature -Handles any game you can through at it -Affordable -Not Extremely power hungry when considering the performance -It has DirectX11 -I have about a 150-180% performance boost coming from the 9800 GTX+ OC edition. That was a good card while it lasted though.
  • Cons: -The fan seemed loud at first, but I got used to it.

good

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Would totally recommend this card for the $209 it was at, great deal.
  • Pros: Fast, very fast. Not a single game struggles in my new PC build with this card, huge step up from a 5770. Amazing price while it was available.
  • Cons: Bit big, just barely got it in. 2 power connectors is a bit much it barely uses that much.
