great card

i got this card about a month ago and im realy happy it can handle skyrim, assassins creed revelations, battlefield 3 on ultra settings

George Wharmby 2012-01-06

Very happy

I personally didn't buy this card here as it was slightly cheaper elsewhere...
First impressions are WOW this card is stunning for the price. I have skyrim running on maxed out settings at 60 fps with my rig (below) i couldn't be happier with the purchase. this card has changed my mind about amd gfx cards as i was an nVidia fan myself. I will be doing crossfire in the future.

AMD Phenom x6 1055t OC @ 3.2 Ghz
Corsair 2x 4gb stick
Asus M4a88t-i deluxe

Great Card, Unable to activate Dirt 3 In

The card itself is awesome compared to my old Sapphire Radeon 3850 AGP card. World of Warcraft running on full DirectX 11 on ultra setting looks amazing and getting close to 100fps mark in busy Stormwind City. Currently downloading DeusX Human Revolution through Steam, allthough I am really dissapointed that the Dirt 3 voucher which came with the card AMD are refusing to activate without me taking a digital photo of the voucher showing the code an emailing it to them, no such hassles with DeusX however. Overall 4 stars bacause of the missing promised game download but it's 5 stars for the card itself, you can't go wrong with one of these in your system. I'll probably buy another after xmas and go Crossfire.

Great product,

running all my games at a rock steady 125 fps on high detail, hitting over 500 on cod4.
real test is when skyrim comes out and playing that on ultra.
deffinatly going to set another up in the future in crossfire

Well worth buying

Finally decided to upgrade from my old 8800gt. The price for the performance plus the fact it had dirt3 and DE:HR bundled won it for me. Got the DE:HR code immediately so downloaded and tried on my 8800. Framrates were pretty shocking. Next day the card turns up. Fitted and everything runs so much smoother. (One warning. Its a large card with a lot of plastic, I had to fit a right angle sata to one of my HDD'S as it was stopping the card fitting.)

Great card

Handles literally all games (bar crysis/metro 2033) perfectly on highest settings, runs Just Cause 2 and Civ 5 max settings 4xAA at roughly 48 fps so mega smooth :)

Can't wait to crossfire

Lewis 2010-12-25

Great value

Great card for the money, got nearly 15,200 GPU score on vantage with the 10.10 drivers (no hotfix) and a phenom II 555. Tom's Hardware had an i7 that got 15,800 so it performs really well out of the box with the drivers from AMD's website.
In a 700D case, running Cool n Quiet the system is still nosier than the GPU at idle (35C - 21% Fan). During Vantage the temp gets to about 70C and 49% Fan speed.

Michael 2010-11-02

Great card

Stepping up to this from a Nvidia 9800gt there was obviously a massive performance increase. Runs all the latest games such as Medal of honor, Bad company 2 and MW2 maxed out with silky smooth FPS. Impressed with the build quality and accessories supplied. Definitely well worth the money and I will be buying a 3rd 22" monitor next month to really push it to it's limits!

Dan 2010-10-30

Top Card

Having a few problems getting it set up with my Eyefinity again but performance wise its a fantastic card!
Can't hear it at all (Load & Idle)
Great card for the money!
