Just played 3 hours of StarCraft 2 on high settings with not a stutter in sight. Installation went smooth. I didn't use the driver cd, just downloaded the latest drivers from AMD. After that I ran benchmarks on far cry 2 and just cause 2 on high settings, the lowest the frames dropped was in the mid 30's. I even ran metro 2033 in dx11 and the framerate counter never dipped below 40fps. Bought this card to upgrade from a hd5750. After a night of testing I am very satisfied. My system is running a core 2 quad with 4gb ram and windows 7 64bit, not state of the art, but enough for most games on the market. The only complain I had is no cables or adapters in the box, but I had some left over from previous cards so I wasn't stuck. Fan seems quiet under load, but sounded like an aircraft carrier until drivers were installed. Bad company 2 even ran smooth in dx11 mode on high. I'll update this review if I notice anything bad, but as of right now I'd say this card is well worth the money.

I purchased this card to upgrade my Dell XPS 8300. The power supply on the 8300 is somewhat restrictive at less than 500W. I could tell from their website specs that this card is likely their "high end" option. Amazon's price is MUCH better than Dell's upgrade cost and installation is a breeze.

The card requires two power connectors but the 8300 has them. Also, the 8300 case is a bit narrow and this version of the card fits with a little room to spare. It's a bit noisy but that's pretty common for a card with these specs in this price range.

Overall, you won't be disappointed and for those of you wondering if this is compatible with Dell's XPS 8300 - it is. Save yourself some cash by upgrading yourself.

FYI: another great upgrade for the XPS8300 is Corsair XMS3 16GB (4x 4GB) PC3-10666 1333MHz DDR3 Memory Kit for AMD and Intel Dual Channel Processors CMX16GX3M4A1333C9 RAM. Again - you'll be upgrading to great RAM for a fraction of Dell's price.

This is a short card. Many newer cards are running 11+ inches, this one is 8-9 inches so should fit in most cases. Dropped it in, Win7 automatically detected and ran on generic drivers on boot, then after boot completed automatically downloaded the Vision Control software from AMD. Scores a 7.8 on WEI. Getting 60+ fps outdoors on BF3 and Skyrim on high default settings, with anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering ON (8x) at 1600x900 on a 22" WS. This card will fit in almost any case for upgrading, but it IS a dual slot so will need room below. I ordered 2 of these, one for my rig and one for my girlfriend (the 2gb for me, the 1gb for her, but otherwise identical) in anticipation of the Star Wars: The Old Republic mmo release and we couldnt be happier.

My setup:

Biostar A87u3 AM3 Mobo
Phenom II x2 B555 unlocked to quad core and a mild OC, from 3.2 to 3.8
16g G.Skills 1600mhz ddr3
Raidmax Hybrid 730w semi-modular PSU
WD Black 1TB HDD 7200 rpm w/64mb buffer
XFX HD6870 2gb

Hers:
Older MSI mobo
Athlon x2 5400 CPU @2.81g
4gb OCZ 800mhz ddr2
Rocketfish 500w modular PSU
Seagata 500gb HDD 7200 rpm 32mb buffer
xfx hd6870 1gb

Note her inexpensive 500w PSU has no problem pushing this card, although it takes 2 connectors so be aware if you plan on X-firing these you will need a total of 4 PCIe 6 pin connectors, 2 per card.
As far as the noise mentioned by some others, I can hear it when I intentionally listen but it isn't loud enough for me to notice if I am not actively listening for it. Not as loud as My CPU cooler when it ramps up under load.

A lot of reviews that this card is loud, but for $130 after rebate, I overlooked the reviews and pulled the trigger on this card. Turns out they weren't kidding, it is very loud. The temperatures could not be kept low, even when idle. Under load, this card alone made my computer sound like a refrigerator. My computer case has 8 fans, plus a water pump for liquid CPU cooling, but it was relatively silent compared to this single XFX 6870 card.

I was able to manually control video card fan speed, and set it at a minimum of 20%. However, this causes the video card to reach high temperatures and you'll notice throttling. As an aerospace engineer, I looked into why this card cannot maintain a low temperature despite other brand's ability to (Sapphire in particular). It seems like the video card's case was poorly designed. Airflow appears to be stagnant at many points on the heat sink. Furthermore, the heat sink has a spiral shape that also stagnates air flow at the edges along the card's length. Designs by other manufacturers seem to address this by designing simply horizontal heat sinks that lead air to the card's exhaust ends.

For the 7850 and 7870 series, XFX seems to have fixed this issue by redesigning both the case and heat sink. However, for the 7xxx series, they also have abandoned their commitment to double lifetime warranty.

XFX cards will generally be less expensive for the 6850 and 6870. I would recommend paying a bit more for another card if you want a 6850 or 6870, though.
