Wonderful! Take that Nvidia!

Bought this card as my 9800gt was more than starting to struggle with some of the newer games. Whacked this in and immediatly the gaming worlds changed.

Just Cause 2 Maxed out looks fantastic, and it doesn't even struggle in the slightest.

I must Admit I do miss the level of tweaking I could do with Nvidias control panel, but that is a small price to pay to get a card capable of what this is.

Overclockers service was, as always, fantastic. Just waiting for Bad Company and Metro 2033 to install now... EEEEEEE!!!!

Great DX11 GPU

Coming from an Nvidia 8800GTX, which i had no problems with for 2+ years, until recently that is. so i wanted a nice new GPU with dx11 capabilities at a decent price.

I was looking at the 5870, but considering the price v performance, plus i could get the vapor-x cooling & still pay less, looked like a good deal to me.

Performance wise, so far as i'd expected for a newer GPU, it beats my old 8800GTX across the board. better FPS for the visual quality, less noise & runs cooler too(more overclocking potential).

Purchased from Overclockers, and due to time constraints i wanted it on a specific day of the week. so i paid a few pounds more & OVC's duely deliverd as requested. great product & great service, thank you.

Nice card

Well the card turned up within 24hrs of placing the order and it replaced my old 9800gtx+, it made a massive difference going from 40fps while 10m raiding in WoW to 60fps (max for the game), this is on ultra settings.

The only downer to my purchase is that I bought this card 3 days BEFORE it was put on deal of the week, would have been nice to know as I paid

All round quality

I have just upgraded from my Nvidia 8800GTX GPU to this ATI 5850 Toxic GPU. i was going to buy the basic 5850, but after some research i wanted the Vapor-x cooling system for me, this flavour card had exactly what i wanted. the 5850 GPU, the vapor-x cooling, plus a bit more kick in the clock speed for a few pounds more was worth it compared to the 5870.

The GPU was easy to install, and roughly the exact size as my old 8800GTX. the only problem i had was that the 2x 6 pin power sockets on the new GPU were on the rear & not the side like the Nvidia GPU, so it took a bit of wire tweaking & fortunatly the plugs still had a little room from the front shelves of the case to fit nicely in.

The card runs nice visualy as i expected, but also very pleased with the vapor-x cooling. it slightly quieter & runs very cool, currently sitting at a max of 45c while writing this, where as before although i dont know the temp then with the 8800, the case is cooler to the touch. reccomended.

Lightning Fast

Bought two of these for crossfire X, and wow they are good. Bought them to replace a 4890, which in its day was a great card but is out shone by these puppies with ease! Crysis maxed, with 4x aa gives 40-45 fps. Oblivion maxed gives 100-110 fps. Very very good card, would recommend it to anyone as a single card or in xfire x. Also has a HDMI which is great for anyone with HD TV's!

Cool and Quiet

Got this as an upgrade to an 8800gts on Monday, and what a difference its makes coupled with a Q6600 @ 3.2GHz, Win 7 64bit & 4GB ram, I've seen a big jump in frame rates and smoothness in games. First ATI card and so far very impressed with the performance.

Best of the best

Got this to replace GTX260 OC in Sli due to MB heat on P6T and power consumption. Nearly as fast as sli and about 50% up on single 260. Max temp 66C so far and quiet too.i7 920 at stock,6gb ram
Far Cry2 HQ 8 x AA 55fps av .at 1920x1080. Hawx maxed out 4 x AA 76fps. Brilliant service from OCs and price has come down too. I will xfire but at moment no need. Get one of these if you want quiet and cool graphics power.
