I can play newer games like Battlefield 3 and Skyrim on max settings.

I'm sure some buyers will want even more power for bragging rights but if you're looking for the best bang for your buck this is definitely the card for you.

I am very happy with this card and have had it for a month so far with no problems.

Currently the best bang for the buck when it comes to gaming. Runs cool and the ability to support up to 3 monitors with a single card is amazing. Also, unlike the GTX 460, only requires one 6-pin power. Not too noisy either. Can run some modern games on ultra at 55-60fps. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to buy on soon.

i picked this card based off reviews and the price range when i bought it it was 199.00 as far as performance is concerned it is inbetween a gtx 460 and Gtx 470. works great runs most of my games i have tried so far with out any issues i want to get a second one for crossfire this is a 2 slot card and the only other thing i should mention is make sure that you have an hdmi cable if you intend to hook this up to your tv it works great it was driving a 46inch sony 120hz 1080p tv fine. based on the results i have gotten its ruffly 2 to 3 times faster than a ps3 plus you have the ati stream converter for your video formats. i thought i would mention save your self the 50 bucks and just oc this and it will match the 6870 base performance. there are no current drivers for this but amd says it will be fully supported in the 10.12 update the other thing with this card is it sipps power seriously at idle its only drawing 0.95 volts and tops out at about 128watts they suggjest a 500w powersupply for this card as well.

Recently, I decided to build a new PC from scratch. I am a rather big gamer, and needed something that would be able to play not only stuff already released at max levels, but future stuff at near max levels.

Usually, I will get Nvidia cards, but I decided to try something different and get a ATI (Now AMD) card. Keep in mind that I am coming from a Galaxy 9800GT card, so this is a rather big upgrade for me. First, here is a list of my specs:

-AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE Processor
-G-Skill Ripjaw 8GB of RAM
-Sapphire Radeon HD 6850
-M4A78T-E Motherboard
-Cooler Master HAF 932 Case
-Corsair CMPSU-750TX Power Supply
-Cooler Maste Hyper 212 Plus Heatsink
-Western Digital 640GB Caviar Black 64MB Cache HDD (Main)
-Western Digital 1TB Caviar Green 32MB Cache HDD (Backup)
-Sony Optiarc AD-7260S DVD/CD Burner
-Logitech Classic Keyboard 200
-HP 2159M Monitor

As you can see, this is a fairly powerful PC. As far as installation, I had no major problems. Like most cards, it will take up 2 slot covers, although one advantage is the card only requires one power connection and not two.

Drivers, however, were a different issue. Out of the box, I was able to get everything installed that I need to, but the Catalyst program has a weird tendency to not optimize your monitor to the best settings (At least mine, it has a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080, although the card can go much higher). I had to play around with the settings to get the desktop to be in full aspect ratio and for the text not to be blurry on a HDMI cable. You will also need to update the drivers, since the CD is out of date.

So this thing only uses one six-pin power connector, it runs quietly and is cool, it looks sexy, it's quite a bit smaller than my 3870, my friend's 6870 and my sister's 4870, this specific model has a great fan. It can handle multiple monitors(up to 4 total) really well, it was pretty much plug-and-play with my dual-monitor setup and the card supports Eyefinity(more on that in a moment). I haven't even gotten to the card's performance yet.

This thing is a beast. It's pretty much just a smaller, lighter, more power efficient, cooler, *underclocked* 6870. If you flash the BIOS a certain way you can unlock your card and literally give it the same performance as a 6870(it's the exact same GPU, again, just underclocked) but that'd make it less power efficient and heat it up a ton. I haven't needed to overclock my card yet to run Deus Ex: Human Revolution(which was free with the card in a promotion, jump on that if it's still available), Crysis, Aliens vs Predator, Batman: Arkham Asylum, L4D2, Killing Floor and Sexy Beach Zero(bwahaha) on highest possible settings in full 1080p with well over 60 FPS in each game(except Sexy Beach Zero, I got around 24 FPS in that game; it's seriously a beast with hardware requirements xD). DirectX 11 effects work like a charm and make everything feel so much more organic, tesselation seriously rocks in Aliens vs Predator and Deus Ex: Human Revolution(it makes the characters feel so much more human, really). DirectX 10 effects work without a hitch, Crysis looks so much better in DX10 mode than in DX9. This card will most likely be able to blast through Arkham City when it releases, that game is being optimized for PC with full DirectX 11 support and extremely detailed textures. When the game releases I'll try to get it and post benchmark results here.

I'll be sure to update this review in the future, even though I doubt anyone will actually care. :v

As of April 2012, this is still an excellent modern gaming video card. Runs Skyrim, Diablo III (beta,) and Battlefield 3 on maximum settings without a stutter. If you prefer ATI/AMD chipsets for your GPU, or are otherwise forbidden from an nVidia GPU (my motherboard's current BIOS revision is having issues with nVidia chipsets,) the 6850 is an excellent choice. I'd be hard pressed to recommend anything else in the <$150 bracket.

The REAL reason I'm writing this review is to clear up the product dimensions. On this page, it is listed as 11.5" long. This is incorrect (and just silly!) Perhaps the retail box is 11.5" long, or perhaps the shipping container is, but the card itself is not. I've measured it myself, and it is ~9.1" long from the tip of the metal case fastener to the edge of the PCB (aka, about 0.5" shorter than the width of a standard ATX motherboard.) If it were any longer than 10", it wouldn't fit in my case. 11.5" is right out.

Again, this card is about 9.1" long, no longer! Check your clearances first before buying any computer component, or you'll have a brief panic attack like I did.
