Downloaded newest drivers/software from AMD website, snapped this puppy in, installed the drivers/software, not a single hitch. This baby works great. Plays streaming HD and blu rays without a hiccup. Set Crysis to Very High and again, not a hiccup. Very fast! We'll see how it handles Crysis 2.

Ok so reading some reviews apparently ati changed it's card line up name and rebranded this 6000 model cards this 6850 is the actual replacement for the 5770 but way outperforms the 5770 and is more comparable to the 5830 this card is now ati's mid game range card and the 6900 is there high end cards. I decided to purchase this card after a youtube video showing the differences between this model card by powercolor and a 5770 running on crysis all high settings this card (the his 6850) was easily 50% better. It has 1gb of ddr5 memory 256bit memory interface it is a 2.1 pci-express slot which can also fit in a 2.0 slot were I am currently using it on, supports eyefinity with an additional display port adapter and 2 dvi ports you can game with 3 monitors at once although with this card not sure if on high/max setting is possible maybe in crossfire. I am currently running bfbc2 on max settings multiplayer and single player without a hiccup most of my lag comes from weak servers. I plan on using fraps and recording some of my gameplay which this card is very capable of. One thing to note is this does not have an enclosed fan so all the heat is placed back into your case I have a micro-atx case so this was a problem had to upgrade my fans now my case sounds like a jet engine. All in all I am very satisfied with the cards performance I would recommend it should run all the latest and greates games as long as you have the right hardware memory/cpu/harddrive yes this all plays into the performance of the card. Don't complain if you have this setup on a pentium4 with 2gb of memory cause you can't max your games out.

my specs:
amd athlon II phenom x4
8gb of g.skill memory
msi 880gm-e43 motherboard
ocz vertex ssd 60gb
150gb raptor x hdd
samsung dvd read/write
killer bigfoot 2100 nic

I built a new machine for my wife and I wanted something really nice and fast so I went quad-core, 64 bit windows 7 and an ssd. As it turns out the graphics card put out better score than my SSD, ram and the processor. On top of all that it is so quiet and runs so cool I bought another. Nice card, the IceQX card is pretty nice too.

Very nice card. I own one already so I was buying this one to crossfire. They can run anything that you can throw at them. They stay cool.

A little disappointing that in the pictures they show a copy of Dirt 3 but it does not come with the card. I was kind of looking forward to playing it. I think they should remove them pictures because it is false advertising.

It's in between the "OK" and "Very Good" catagories, it's an excellent piece of hardware if you have the right person to install it. But if you don't have a good processor to match this beast of a graphics card, then you will experience a moderate amount of frame-rate issues and visual tearing.

Like all "Gamer-grade" graphics cards, this needs a lot of power. The box says it needs 500 watts, but I don't have a high-end motherboard or 10000 RPM hard drive in my computer, so I could've gotten away with 450 watts. I had 400 watts in my power supply, so I needed to buy a new one, such as the Diablotek DA Series 600-Watt ATX Power Supply PSDA600.

Gamer graphics cards are for normal-sized towers or bigger. You can get one that glows, like Antec Nine Hundred Steel ATX Ultimate Gamer PC Case (Black).

To install this graphics card, you need PCI 16x, which is the biggest yellow stripe on the motherboard, and then pop that baby back in.

I ran this graphics card on Grand Theft Auto 4 with an 3-year-old Intel Quad Core and 4 gigs of RAM and it gave me 29.4 FPS on all settings super-high using the game's benchmark test. The game was almost unplayable using my old GeForce 9300. Here's a before and after for GTA4:

This graphics card works great especially for the price. I have a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H motherboard with an integrated ATI Radeon HD 3800 series graphics processor. All the information I could find stated that CrossFireX would not work with the Radeon HD 6xxx series. It however does work, can't say there is a big performance increase considering that the onboard GPU is much slower than this one. I didn't need the CrossFireX Bridge but after installing the HD 6850 I had to change some setting in my BIOS to get AMD Catalyst software to recognize both GPU's. When I run AMD System Monitor it shows the onboard GPU running at 100% and the HD 6850 GPU picks up the slack.

I built this computer a couple of years ago to be a media center. My onboard graphics card has a HDMI output which I have connected to a 50" Plasma. I could play 1080p movies for the most part fine before and I thought I was getting a good picture quality until I put the HD 6850 in. The picture quality now is phenomenal, and my blu-ray movies start faster without the occasional flickering I would see on 1080p movies with a file size greater than 20GB.

The only negative thing I would have to say about this graphics card is the size. I put this in a HTCP case and the only way to get it to fit was to buy a smaller 600 watt power supply. Even with the smaller power supply the power connection to the graphics card is touching the back of the power supply.
