Used this to replace 2 HD 6870's. Immediately better.
Played several high end, recent games on full and not noticed frame-rate drops

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Stunning Graphics, Superb Gameplay in 1080p HD, Ease of installation, Runs quiet and cool, Definitely worth the investment.
Bad points:
Mainly not the card I don't think but would have liked more fps I get average 80fps, but I believe that's down to rest of PC hardware 8Gb DDR 2 & Core 2 duo 3Ghz CPU, whereas my brother has same card on 32GB DDR3 with I7 CPU and pulls around 125fps so not cards fault

Alex, East Kilbride

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Can play every game now at max settings (apart from Crisis 3 but nobody can) with good FPS plus came with Never Settle Reloaded which makes it great value for money .

Only every bought sapphire amd cards so installation is a breeze and its very quiet
Bad points:
I bought this game after 15/05/13 so should have came with the "level up" version of Never Settle Reloaded which comes with 4 free games instead of the 3 that I got according to the AMD website.

Runs a little hot while playing Bioshock Infinite on max everything but I think that's my case set up that's at fault and probably not the card

Nancy, Newcastle upon Tyne

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great GPU for the money, quiet even the fans are running fast.
Bad points:
Only 1 HDMI out. AMD Catalyst is required to update drivers, and it's pretty horrible software; runs at start-up whether you want it to or not and not user-friendly.
