Solid card at a great price

Great card, tested it on a variety of games and It works really well.

I first tested Skyrim and it performed considerably better than my previous card which was a 550ti. I still run it at medium/low settings but that's more down to preference because I don't like dropping below 60 in towns when most people can tolerate it. On High settings in Whiterun it still managed to hit a minimum of about 40, which I still think is impressive. I will note that I'm pairing this card with a bulldozer FX-4100 at stock speed. Valve games ran excellent as well, L4d2, TF2 and Portal all ran at around 150-300 FPS max settings/FOV including 8x Anisotropic and 4x AA.

I have yet to have tested Portal 2, but I suspect it will still run well. Diablo 3 ran at about 90-120fps on high settings/res even with big mobs.

Undoubtedly however, what impressed me the most, is that I went from running Just Cause 2 at minimal settings to high settings without a twitch. Sound card for the price if you ask me.

Brilliant card.

I got this card as an upgrade from my 4540 and wow. This card has out done my expectations

It can run Kingdoms of Amalur demo, at 1920x1080 at max settings. Would recommend this card to anyone.

Great card

Just got two of these to Crossfire, can fault them run everything in the highest details on world of warcraft, i even get a soild 60fps in Stormwind. My friend just got a 6900card which costs more than two of theses, and they beat it hands down.

Ordered this on Thursday morning and was here on Friday, so thanks OCUK for the usual delivery service :D

The card was easy to get set up. Requires 1 6pin PCI-E connector and comes with a crossfire bridge, a VGA to DVI adapter, and the Dirt 3 coupon.

Don't use the CD, just go the the Sapphire website and download the latest drivers from there.

This is a definite 5/5, pure awesome :D
