    Re: Reviews - PowerColor PCS+ HD7850

    I think this is a superb card and clearly the only choice in the midrange just now. I'm not sure about it not being a big step up in performance either - sure if you compare it to Nvidia's 2nd top card of last gen then it's not but it's supposed to be competition vs the 560 (sans Ti), or the replacement for the 6850.

    Everything about the card is class - temps, power, noise, single 6-pin and overclockability taking it past the 580? I think it's well worth £200 tbh, considering the 570 is still generally above £200.

    I'd normally stay clear of powercolor cards but this one is tempting me.

    It seems that the HD7850 is meant to be a decent card for overclocking:

    Re: Reviews - PowerColor PCS+ HD7850

    Got this card a few weeks ago. Fantastic performance for how small and quiet this card is. Running Far Cry 3 on high(not full) specs, it was nice and smooth and it never went over 60 Degrees and I never heard it over my case fans/awful griding noise on the H60 pump. Also ran BF3 at High(not full) specs without a single hitch on a 64 player server.

    I'm running an FX-4100 on a G970A-UD3 Mobo, and 16GB at 1600MHz

    I would recommend this card to anyone who wants a great card that is smaller and less expensive than it's older brothers(7870 and 7950), but performs almost as good.
