5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant. 30 Dec 2011
By L. Neil
I purchased this card to replace my temporary GeFOrce GT430 in my main PC - a custom built box with a Gigabyte M68M-S2P running a Phenom II X4 955 and an OCZ ModXStream Pro 500w PSU inside.
Compared to my old GT430 this card blows it away. Admittedly the first card I received worked once then never again - it would just cause the PSU's short protection to kick in. In light of how impressed I am with this card I won't deduct points from it's score.
Anyways, with the card installed (a darn tight squeeze on my motherboard - I had to buy some incredibly small SATA cables to get the blighter to fit in!)I fired up the PC and it booted immediately. A quick trip to AMD/ATI/whatever-the-heck-they-call-themselves provided me with the drivers for both Windows 7 x64 (which rates this card at 7.7 for both Graphics categories) and Debian 6
I connected the card to my IIYama Vision Master Pro 450 (twenty pounds from that favorite auction site!) and it looked incredible. 1600x1200 at 85Hz or (technically unsupported by the monitor) 1920x1440 at 75Hz provided excellent 3D performance - easily handling anything I could throw at it - Crysis (2) ran incredibly well on it - easily more than 150FPS.
It is a fairly cheap card for what it does and how well it performs and I would certainly recommend this card to anyone looking for a good powerful PCI-e card.
It just works day-in-day-out. This review may be a bit on the short side but what can you say about this card? It's excellent!

I got this card for my first pc build and it has not disappointed me at all. It runs all the games I have tried at high spec and runs and a very smoother fps. hasn't been tested on the latest high spec games like Skyrim and Battlefield, but I'm sure it will have no issues.

Greta value for money and easy to fit into any case. Great Purchase!

This AMD Radeon HD6850 card is approx 3.5 x 11 x 23 cm in size and fills two slots on our motherboard. It has twin DVI outs [one is a Dual Link DVI-I that can work larger resolution monitors and output to a VGA screen, and the other is a single link DVI-D that's digital only and can't run a VGA display]. There's also an HDMI TV socket and a Display Port socket [the latter can feed video to a third monitor]. A 4pin Molex to 6 pin PCIe power plug convertor cable is supplied, along with a DVI to VGA socket convertor but ours had no Crossfire link cable for twin 6850 cards in AMD Crossfire mode [similar to NVidia's SLi]. This Sapphire 11180-00-20R retail box didn't include a 1m HDMI lead either, but otherwise is identical the 11180-00-40R retail boxed version that does have both the Crossfire patch cable and the HDMI lead [so I'd definately buy the latter if it's the same price and get the freebie stuff]. There's also a simple install guide pamphlet and a driver DVD. This 110ish mid range 6850 gaming card is the one on techie magazine PCPro's A List [best Value Graphics Card].

My 15 year old son's 4 year old Mesh gaming PC has an ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard just upgraded with a new AMD Phenom 640 Quad core 3.0GHz processor, Windows 7 64-bit, and 8Gb of 800MHz DDR2 system RAM. It's Sapphire ATI 4770 512Mb was a respectable gaming card in its day, however as I was adding 64-bit Windows 7, I thought I'd take the opportunity to upgrade the graphics card to a modern one with 1Gb memory and DirectX 11 compatibility. The motherboard has two full 16x PCI express slots [Sli], but they are version one [250Mb/second] and this Sapphire 6850 card is PCIe version two [500Mb/second] compatible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plug, Play and immerse yourself in PC gaming 4 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
My son and I have been upgrading his PC repeatedly over the last few years (on the cheap). He is a PC Gamer and we take tips from the largest magazine in that genre published in the UK. They have current recommendations on the best "value for money" upgrade components and the Sapphire 11180-00-20R HD6850 1GB GDDR5 Graphics Card was their recent suggestion when the time came last month. My 15 year old did the whole swap out of the old for new himself; with the ease we all hope for. No software issues with our old bullet proof XP operating system, though it works with all later versions as well. And the grapics? Wow! Keeping in mind the reasonable price (Dad does not allow upgrades that generally exceed $100 per pop) it is astounding. Note on the picture that it does take up the space of two slots at the back of the machine side by side. It only uses one card slot, but there is the potential that it could cover another, blocking that out. We had two slots available for an older PCI technology, so we opted for that kind of connection as there was nothing else to conflict with in those slots. As the online PC games get more detailed and awesome, there was hesitation in the graphics. That is a thing of the past and the games have actually picked up speed and are so much smoother and at the pace they were intended. That was a big surprise to us...we knew there was hesitation, but we did not realize the pace of the game was being compromised. There has not been a single graphics quality or hardware issue in the past month since installation. My son and I say skip the super duper 500 quid graphics cards if you don't have money to burn, but do spend what it takes for this card and get a great return on your investment.
