Comments, Questions & Reviews:
Fantastic product!! by Simon
Awesome product, and good service from Aria :)
i noticed the lack of a review for this awesome product so i shall make an amatuer one for those who are wondering about this product.
AESTHETICS (LOOKS): (6.5/10)
First thing i noticed about this card is that it looked pretty cool, but nothing special in the picture... i was not really fussed about this though as it would not be seen much while in the case. When i recieved the product i found it actually looked better than the picture.
EASE OF USE/INSTALLATION: (8/10)
I found this card super easy to install, just follow the simple included instructions and you will be fine.
The driver software was also simple to install. Just find the model on the AMD websites useful support driver search widget and download the latest catalyst driver package.
After installing the drivers and completing the necessary system restart i noticed an imediate improvement and sharpness of the desktop OS graphics. After testing in a few games; Team Fortress, Crysis and Minecraft ;) I discovered that this card is capable of running even crysis on 1080p HD with max settigns and really smoothly aswell.
This is definately a card that will hold its own for quite some time and WILL run all new games currently (2011) smoothly.
Only noticable con's: the card runs warm... by no means hot and will not have any issue running hot if it does but for those of you obsessed with keeping your sytem super cool you may need to invest in a more advanced cooling system. The fansink/heatsink fan can get fairly loud during high end gaming (although this is only really noticable if you were to mute the game).
To put it quickly; you will NOT be disappointed with this Graphics Card. Excellent price by Aria pc too. :)
Radeon Hd 6870 by Chris
I bought this graphics card to go in crossfire with my sapphire radeon 6870 i already had. This graphics card from XFX is so cheap compared to the nvidia competition and when put in crossfire i was blown away by the performance. I have them in a x8 x8 motherboard and a rather underpowered athlon ii processor so these cards arent even being used to their fullest.
I get over 95 frames per second on a 1920x1080 monitor in alien vs preditor and well over 60 fps in battle field bad company 2 although i prefer to keep sync to refresh rate on and with highest graphics and anti-aliasing on.
I would recommend this graphics card to who ever wants a card thats cheap and can play any game on highest settings,while being power efficient, and when is paired can do anything. Also, it is completely silent and stays cool.
