Good value, but noisy fan
18 September 2011
Summary: I have replaced XFX 8800 GTS with this card and while there's some improvement in games, it's not as much as expected, honestly. But the fan noise it very distracting and annoying. My old card was much quieter. I would not have purchased it if I knew it would be so noisy.
Summary: With the right kind of expectations, I don't think too many people will be disappointed with what they get from this card. I recently built a new computer (first time experience), and I chose this card and manufacturer based on a recommendation of a roommate. The new rig I built was mainly focused on playing StarCraft 2, so I wasn't too keen on spending too much on a card when the game doesn't require it.
Summary: I was very eager to get this card in my machine, to replace a budget powercolor 5750. I got less existed as soon as I opened the box. No cables or adapter at all. I am ok with everything but the ommision of a corssfire cable, I guess XFX does not want you to crossfire two of its card together... Next was the general appearance of the card, which screamed "rush job" to me. THe PCB has some uneven cuts at the edges, and the fan shroud was made out of cheap, cheesy plastic.

If you’ve read my HD 7870 review, you would know what a graphics card is: that it is for the fast rendering of 3D, usually for the purposes of gaming, and they use the interface called PCI-Express to interface ...
Pros: If you can find it for £60, it would be a good find
Cons: Older card HD 5850 is faster than it at the same price
XFX RADEON HD 6850 GDDR5 1Gb bassa qualità a basso costo

Excerpt: Le schede video XFX in genere hanno difetti appena comprate, costano di meno si ma diffidate meglio spendere 10€ in più e andare su una sapphire. In sostanza sono quasi identiche ma si rompono prima. Nel complesso la qualità dei componenti è inferiore al ...
