Summary: I have two of these in a Crossfire X setup in my system and they work perfectly. They have stood up to every game I thrown at them and I am likely to keep using them up until the successor the the Radeon HD 7XXX appears.
Pros: 1. Quiet when running idle or low intensity games 2. Delivers the power you need when you need it
Cons: 1. Gets slightly high volume when running graphics intense games (e.g. Skyrim)

Pros: Bought 2 of these last holiday season to update my fiancee and my computers...just purchased a 3rd to build my kids a budget game rig this year for Xmas. Scores a 7.8 WEI for graphics. All 3 cards are pretty quiet, at least in my opinion. Runs everything out there...BF3 on ultra get over 60 fps o...
Summary: I use this video card to run a 32" 1080 3D TV. I use HDMI to a 3d receiver, then HDMI to the tv. I also run an external monitor that is used occasionally. The video card seems very reliable and thats what I wanted most. For the price it was a very good purchase that I am very happy with.
Pros: Runs all games in max settings no problem! Never gets near max temps. It can be overclocked so it can keep up with newer games for a little while. Great price, came with free game.
Cons: Sucker gets loud when your gaming with high graphics. Hard to clean.
Pros: This card is awesome for the price. This is an awesome card for any gamer out there. With this card, I can run crysis on the highest settings at over 60 fps and skyrim with enb and over 20 mods on ultra settings at 40-60 fps. This card is awesome.
Summary: @Young Fellow, Considering you have a PSU with 2-6pin pci connectors it works great, Although I would go with another 6850 with only 1, that way if you have the option you may crossfire more easily with less power consumption.
Pros: Great card!
Cons: 2-6 pin power connectors, may be a con for some. Most other 6850's have 1.
