5.0 out of 5 stars CrossFireX works with AMD 780G Chipset 29 May 2011
By Quattro - Published on
Verified Purchase
This graphics card works great especially for the price. I have a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H motherboard with an integrated ATI Radeon HD 3800 series graphics processor. All the information I could find stated that CrossFireX would not work with the Radeon HD 6xxx series. It however does work, can't say there is a big performance increase considering that the onboard GPU is much slower than this one. I didn't need the CrossFireX Bridge but after installing the HD 6850 I had to change some setting in my BIOS to get AMD Catalyst software to recognize both GPU's. When I run AMD System Monitor it shows the onboard GPU running at 100% and the HD 6850 GPU picks up the slack.

I built this computer a couple of years ago to be a media center. My onboard graphics card has a HDMI output which I have connected to a 50" Plasma. I could play 1080p movies for the most part fine before and I thought I was getting a good picture quality until I put the HD 6850 in. The picture quality now is phenomenal, and my blu-ray movies start faster without the occasional flickering I would see on 1080p movies with a file size greater than 20GB.

The only negative thing I would have to say about this graphics card is the size. I put this in a HTCP case and the only way to get it to fit was to buy a smaller 600 watt power supply. Even with the smaller power supply the power connection to the graphics card is touching the back of the power supply.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good performance for mid-tier card 31 May 2011

This review is based on a single card that is not overclocked. I've played 3 games with it so far: Neverwinter Nights 2 (notoriously system heavy), Assassin's Creed, and Shogun 2 (which was a free download with this card). I can play all of them with maxed out settings at 30+ fps. I haven't taken a swing at the real graphics hogs, like Crysis, but there are youtube videos showing it is quite capable. Plus, once you eventually add a 2nd card in CrossfireX, you get a performance boost comparable to the HD6950.

If you're trying to keep your GPU under $200, then the 6850 is for you. This is my second HIS card, my first in the HD line, and I have no complaints.
2.0 out of 5 stars RMA city 25 Aug. 2011

I bought two to run in Crossfire when they first came out. One stopped working altogether after a few months, and the other started showing major artifacting after the same amount of time. On the plus side, HIS technical support is helpful and responsive and they didn't hesitate to give me RMAs, and they replaced the cards with new, boxed ones that have worked fine so far. If they have worked out the problems I would definitely recommend this card. It's very fast and inexpensive, though it does get a bit loud when the fan spins up under a full load.
5.0 out of 5 stars Improved and works great 28 July 2011

Of course if you're buying this card you understand it's the the high end user model. My advice before purchasing would be to research the card model as there are reviews all over the web. If this card is in your budget and you want to play games but not crazy about having high FPS in Crysis 2, then this card will suit you well.

Handles easily:
Warcraft 3 (over kill)
Modern Warfare 2
Battlefield 2, Bad Company
Starcraft 2 (over kill)
League of Legends (over kill)
Diablo 3 (not yet released but obvious)

You get the point.

Downloaded newest drivers/software from AMD website, snapped this puppy in, installed the drivers/software, not a single hitch. This baby works great. Plays streaming HD and blu rays without a hiccup. Set Crysis to Very High and again, not a hiccup. Very fast! We'll see how it handles Crysis 2.
