5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet spot for 1080p gamers, March 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6850 1GB PCI-E Video Card (100315L) (Personal Computers)
I have owned GTX 9800, GTX 260 and this is my third video card.
By far the best because it offers very high frame per second AND most important to me: it is truely whisper quiet.

Sapphire did an excellent job at building the heatsink fan. Now my whole computer runs cooler and quieter.
You will love this if you own any nVidia GTX 260 or lower. This one is way more efficient than any nVidia GTX 260, 460 cards.

Idle 50C (fan running at 35% completely silent)
Load 68C (fan running at 60% slightly audible over case fan)
Draws about 130Watts only vs 180Watts for the GTX 260, 460.

Two thumbs up. Good job sapphire and amd. Highly recommended for gamers at 1080p resolution and for people who need 3 monitor setups.
