Radeon HD 7850 is a good card, but this one has a crappy cooler

Summary: I've had other HD 7850s and while the 7850 itself is a great GPU, this particular card has an awful cooler. It sucks hot air from inside the case and blows it right back into the case. It gets much higher temps then it should. Even in a well ventilated case I saw temps over 75 degrees. Due to the horrible cooler it is nearly impossible to give it any substantial overclock as well.
Summary: This card had alot of problems and i would suggest saving up until you can afford something better. The main problem i had with this card was keeping it cool under load conditions such as gaming and benchmarking it would get pretty damn hot and i'ld have to crank the fan wayyyyyyy up which as you can imagine was incredibly loud.
Summary: This card did boot up just fine with the most current drivers and the small size is welcome in any case. On the other hand, it immediately started throwing artifacts in my Firefox Browser. A lot of websites including Amazon would be missing part of the print and irregular shapes appeared in many websites. This is troublesome in that rendering a website is not a particularly demanding task for a video card. My 6850 from HIS was perfect and visited the same websites.
Works well with my Truckee motherboard and 460W PSU

Summary: I have the misfortune of owning an HP computer that has a Pegatron Truckee motherboard that is incompatible with standard power supplies and only seems to work with the OEM 460W PSU. I bought this card mainly because of its low power draw and the fact that its performance was well balanced with the capabilities of the motherboard. Card installed without any problem. I stress tested it using the Valley benchmark and it ran fine without any sign of trouble.
