Blue Screen of Death

Summary: I will try to get a refund for this, I didnt cut the box for the rebate.
Pros: The card runs quietly, it doesnt seem that the fan comes on when I am just running windows desktop. Good price with $30 rebate.
Cons: I bought the card to play bf3. It got enough fps to be playable but I had to uninstall the drivers and go back to the WDM driver windows auto installs. The Catalyst driver causes frequent Blue Sreen of Death. Tech support was unable to help me, I am not sure if this card has a defective component...
Pros: Very little pros. It's an XFX card, and it has 1 GB DDR5
Cons: Every now and then see red lines across monitor. Isn't the monitor. I was running an 8800GTS before this card and never experienced red lines. With this card, every now and then I see red lines run across my screen. Not very enjoyable...If XFX didn't want me to SEND the card back and wait to rece...
Summary: I give it two stars for now until the coupon comes.
Pros: Can play most high end games at some-what satisfying fps.
Cons: After purchasing this AMD product, I did not receive the Dues Ex Human revolution. I bought this because it came with free expensive game. I waited about a week and half, and the coupon did not come.
Summary: The card started crashing when I was doing several tasks at once: watching a video and downloading a large file. I had to set the GPU and Memory clocks lower to continue using it. I will be sending it to XFX for replacement, as Newegg will not take it back once you have applied for a rebate.
Pros: This display card is overclocked by default, so it's very fast. My system has no other overclocked components. I do not play games on this system.
Cons: The fan can become quite noisy, even during normal use. It spins up above normal when I visit any sites with Adobe Flash content. When I view flash videos, it can become quite distracting.
Summary: I wanted to pair this card up in Crossfire with my Asus EAH6850. This card claims to have a lifetime warranty, but what does lifetime technically mean? I should have just kept with another Asus EAH6850 for my Crossfire setup and not be swayed by the rebate, I have now spent more due to shipping cost...
Pros: I purchased this card just because it had a rebate. The card performed as expected.
Cons: Louder than my Asus EAH6850, even though the fan was louder it ran much hotter. This card also cannot handle as much over voltage as the Asus card. The construction on it is much cheaper and more plastic than the Asus.
Summary: Regardless of rebate scam. The card is working as advertise.
Pros: Great card. Support Hdmi 4.1. No problem so far. Plays every game I throw at it and supports 3d which I use.
Cons: Was denied rebate for no apparent reason. They recieve d documentation then denied stating item does not belong to rebate offer. Last time I do business with this company. I bought this card becuase of the rebate. Beware of the rebate offer. If you want to support a scamming company with bad ads ...
Summary: I emailed XFX's support team by opening up a ticket through their website. I haven't received a reply yet and I really hope they do something about this soon. I was a pretty big fan of XFX when I had my GT 240, but this is ridiculous.
Pros: Well, for the things I can even scrounge up, I guess it has a great price, looks sleek, and is "technically" better than my previous Nvidia GT 240.
Cons: I have had a TERRIBLE experience with this card. I bought it, installed it, and now I get BSOD on almost every game I play. WoW crashes, Black Ops crashes, Titan Quest crashes, and I can't even run Windows Experience Index without BSOD'ing. I have reinstalled all my drivers and I've scoured the f...
Pros: Great looking card, Size, Heatsink Placement, Design and Air Ventilation.
Cons: I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit and whenever I tried doing anything that required 3d it gave me the BSOD with all the updated drivers. I even wiped my hard drive reinstalled windows, then I put that card back in and isntalled latest drivers still the same problem. I think it is somethi...
