    Great graphic card that you won’t regret (DIRT 3 included), September 15, 2011

    Here is my computer setting: Dell XPS 8300 i5-2300 2.8GHZ, 6G RAM, 128GB SSD, Integrated graphics. I played Starcraft II a lot. The game is slow even if I use medium graphic settings (resolution:1600X900). Went through a few forums, I settled with this card. Here is what I find:

    Pros:
    1: It is very very quiet. my power supply is 460W. It is plenty for this card.
    2: The windows experience index score is now 7.8 (Integrated graphics 5.2)
    3: Starcraft II (utra high graphic settings): FPS is between 54-101. Average:75 (Using the integrated graphics, I only get 14-30.)
    4: It has two 6pin power connectors I don’t need them as my power supply have them). It also comes with a VGA to DVI adaptor. This is really handy.
    5: Surprise and bonus: There is no description on Amazon site that this actually include a free game: DIRT3: .
    6: Great build quality
    7: 3D experience (I have not tested yet)

    Cons:
    1: This is large card. You want to make sure you motherboard has enough space for it.

    Tips:
    This can be personal experience. When I first installed the card, I noticed the fan noise immediately and it could not be recognized and my monitors showed no signals. So I plugged my monitors back to the integrated graphic card and installed the drivers. Then I plug my monitors to the graphic card and powered on the machine. Then fan noise was disappeared and it became very very quiet. I saw signals in the monitors. Windows 7 started to recognize the new cards and install the drivers for it. The resolution still did not look good. After a restart, my two monitors were recognized and was set to their maximum resolution automatically.

    Overall, I really love this card. This is great graphic card that you won’t regret buying it.

    update (09/27/2011)
    The card is still rocking.
    It took me two weeks to finally get the AMD stream key to download DIRT3. The game has 11GB download size. I followed the instruction on the coupon code card. After filling out all the info,submitted, was asked to upload a scanned photo of the coupon for evaluation. Make sure you sign up their newsletter when submitting the code. otherwise you will receive no confirmation. I did not signed up in the beginning. No response after one week. I contacted them through web form. still no response. Then I re-did the process and signed up the news letter. I got response from them after two days. They said they are evaluating all the submission…
    Anyway, great card, bad service from AMD.

    Awesome Card, October 3, 2011

    Initially placed an order for a Radeon 6850 but changed my order when i found this card for $3 more. Amazing performance for the price.

    Pros——————-
    Great performance.

    Price. Can’t really justify a 6850 when a 6870 costs just a little more.

    Noise. This card is particularly quiet when not stressed. Under load it becomes audible, but probably on par with any case or heatsink fan. Nothing crazy.

    Cons*————————
    Size. This card is massive. The card and attached cooler will occupy two pci slots.

    Heat. Doesn’t produce excessive amounts of heat, but will make a mess of the airflow in your case. Especially an in an htpc gaming rig. Luckily the fan on the card vents the air out of the back of the case.

    Power hog. This card requires two 6 pin pci-e power connectors. There are two molex to pci power adapters included in the box however. Just make sure your power supply can handle it. Sapphire states a 500w power supply is “required” but i highly doubt a smaller, quality psu wouldn’t work.

    Other thoughts ——————-
    My card included Dirt3 but wasn’t stated in the description. Also, I can’t vouch for the included driver CD as i downloaded the latest catalyst drivers directly from amd instead. I didn’t need the dvi to vga adapter either. Note to those looking to crossfire these cards: a crossfire bridge is not included so you will need to get one elsewhere. All in all, this is an amazing card for the price. The “cons” i stated earlier aren’t really cons, just things to be aware of before you buy. Just be sure you know what to expect and can meet the space/power requirements.

    Good card, Good price!!, February 12, 2012

    This review is from: SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 PCIE Graphics Card (Personal Computers)

    Ok, let’s begin with this, if you have to be at the top of the heap and have the best for your rig, this card is not for you. If you have a budget, common sense, and a big enough case, this card is a “must have”.

    I bought this card about a year ago and it still gives back whatever I throw at it. There is enough growth potential that this card should be able to handle anything for the next couple years or so, with that being said, let’s review the card itself.

    This is a pretty big card, I would definitely recommend a full size case for this one, and a mother board that is of decent size also.
    The air flow is not a problem for me as my rig has plenty of fans for heat (sounds like a B-29) lol, however the fans do not bother me.

    Games, porn, movies, all are good with this card, it displays blu-ray 1080 just fine without a hitch.

    Budget: My rule of thumb has been that a graphics card should be where to spend money. Motherboard and CPU is where you should spend the most and graphics should be #3 on the list. I try to stay in the $200.00 range, lower and you’re buying yesterdays card that may have a hard time keeping up with todays programs, any higher and you’re paying for bells and whistles you probably don’t need. That justifies a good card at a good price that should last for years to come.

    Common sense: I recommend going to your local pc store and checking the size of this card, be sure it will fit your rig and that it will not obstruct any slots you may want to use. If you have no problems, get it.
    I would also like to say that after doing much homework on graphic cards, they are all getting bigger since so much importance is being put on them now.

    Big Case: This kind of carries over with common sense, if you’re like me, I get a big case that is sturdy enough to stand the test of time. I could gut my case, put all new hardware in it and it would last another 10 years. It has great airflow, and that is the most important thing so as to keep components cool.

    ok, back to the card, from the info I have gathered from other reviews and personal use, I think this card is awesome.

    I play Bloodstone, COD, Star Trek Legends, and others without any problems. It even makes the older games that I play come alive.

    AMD 9850
    Saphire 6870
    4 GB ram
    MSI AM2+ MB
    Soundblaster Audegy 2
    900 w power supply
    Cooler Master case

    Good luck!!
