I purchased this on sale because it was a great value and because XFX has a solid reputation. The card has exceeded all of my expectations and then some. After playing battlefield 3 for a while on ultra settings at 1920 x 1080 I decided to turn on Eyefinity and try playing it across 2 monitors. The card handled BF3 across 2 monitors like butter. The problem with playing BF3 or any FPS across 2 monitors is that the crosshairs are in between the 2 monitors so you can not see what you are aiming at. But this card handled it so smoothly that I decided to get a third monitor. This thing can handle BF3 beautifully across 3 monitors. Note: You must run 2 of the monitors via mini display port for Eyefinity to work across more than 2 monitors. If your monitors do not support mini display port you will need 2 mini display port to "active" DVI adapters. Like these...
This thing is a beast - especially when you run two of them in Crossfire. :D On most games, I get between 60-100 FPS average with all the settings maxed out at 1080P resolution, even with just a single card and no overclocking.
With two cards, that jumps up to between 100-200 FPS for most games at 1080P with maxed graphics settings. On Diablo 3, I currently get an average of 180 FPS on ultra settings at 1080P with the two cards in Crossfire. On Borderlands and Dead Space, I'm also getting ridiculous frame rates from 150-200 FPS. It's so fast that I have to turn on VSync to bring the framerate down to match the 60Hz refresh rate on my TV so I don't get so much screen tearing. Probably going to end up getting a monitor/TV with a 120/240Hz refresh rate down the road so I can enjoy the high frame rates.
The core edition comes with a huge heat sink and one fan, and it runs at respectable temps in my Cooler Master Storm Scout case. Under heavy load, my temps max out...
I'm going to begin this review by saying that I been a computer gamer for around 6 years now, so within those years I had always jumped to graphics card to graphics card Nvidia to AMD back and forth. This is officially the time when I say stop and just follow the words on screen, as I give my personal review on this card.
What a great card, this card is top of the line must have card for any gamer. I had always went a cheaper route in my computer gaming career graphics card wise, I always get the bottom edition of graphics cards around the 100-160 area, but if your thinking about doing that don't do it, just get this card, its well worth the money. The 250 that I spent on this card was a great investment for myself and it will be for those who are thinking of buying it.
XFX XFX had never let me down as a company, they know that things happen, and graphics card failures happen so with that being said they have a lifetime warranty that comes with the card and...
