For the price this is a phenomenal card, able to max settings at 1680x1050 in every game I've tried. 6870s are bad overclockers, got it up to 950/1125, not much but she's stable. MIR was no hassle, XFX has awesome warranty, hopefully I won't have to use it.
So far so good. Card runs quiet on Diablo III even after a few hours work. On major scenes it barely even heats up, fans stay cool and quiet and performance is amazing with high on all settings. At $149 you can't really get a better card. Will hopefully start to OC it soon when i have some down time from D3.
Bought this card to go along side a single fan XFX 6870 for crossfire. Would buy again, the performance scaling for 6870's in crossfire is just amazing. It's almost like they were designed to be used in crossfire.
This was part of an upgrade I am doing for a friend, and I bought it cause I have the 6850 Black and I must admit this every bit as good. I was surprised and how Quiet it runs, it does spool up under load but is still quiet.
The down size is the power, it needs two 6 pin PCI connectors and as the PC i was upgrading had a older OCZ modular power supply it only had the 1 connector so I had to root thru my bits to get another connector hooked up, so that was unexpected
Amazing card, the dual fan really keeps it cool at 39C idle and 65C load.the fans are very quiet under 50%, but over 51% and they get noticeable. it maxes Assassins Creed out with ease, never dipping below 45 fps.i am very pleased with the price/performance that this card delivers.
