1 out of 5 eggsDead after 9 months

Pros: Ran well for 9 months...

Cons: This card died after 9 months. Paid the shipping and RMA'd it to Sapphire and waited 2+ weeks, just to receive a faulty refurbished card back.. Now I have to pay for shipping AGAIN... I will not ever buy an ATI or Sapphire card again. I will go back to strictly buying Nvidia from now on.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 5 months

Pros: ran like a beast 276 fps on a streetfighter benchmark.

Cons: died after 5 months, others have said that Sapphire support will not replace them, this is 500 (at the time) dollars down the tube, I will let the public know not to buy sapphire and will not let clients order parts from them if this is not fixed to my satisfaction.

Other Thoughts: Building computers for a living for 9 years now and sapphire was my number one poster child for great cards. But if what others say is true and they wont replace this dead card. I will scream atop the mountains and make my friends, family, colleagues and clients aware of this shameful wrong doing.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Satisfied Customer

Pros: This card is quite a powerhouse. It runs very cool and literally tackles everything with a smile. It's lighter than my previous card, which I thought was a negative, but when I got it I realized quickly that it was more of a Positive. It doesn't feel cheap and I have never had problems with Sapphire. I am completely satisfied.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 5 months

Pros: Card burned out after only 5 months, and now I can't return despite having a 2 year warranty? Nearly 500 down the tube?

Cons: Reliabilty.

Other Thoughts: Get a card from a manufacturer that doesn't give you the run around.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb performance

Pros: Does what ATI 7950 is supposed to do. This is your card if you are willing to invest little more money over 7870. Runs any games at max settings and will continue to do so for many more months to come.

Cons: Have not run major FPS games yet but 3dmark06 score came out impressive. But i definitely lags behind HiS oc version of 7950 or EVGA. Low quality exterior or at least it looks that way.

5 out of 5 eggsbeautiful gpu

Pros: simple amazing texture detal and rendering. cant wait for another to put in crossfire doesnt run hot though im sure it would if you wanted to clock

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: this card is for pcie 3.0 but im effectively running it in pcie 2.0 with the exact same scores as it runs in pcie 3.0 though im sure you can run this card in crossfire with pcie 2.0 though if you overclock by a large margine you may or may not start to have issues will post again after crossfire setup. great card sapphire

5 out of 5 eggsSuper fast, super toasty

Pros: The 7950 is a beast. It runs every game at the highest res and highest quality settings with EVERYTHING turned all the way up.

Cons: I had a few driver issues when I first got it going but now all is well. Now I need a new [good] monitor. It puts out a lot of heat but don't they all. Make sure you have plenty in cool air coming in or if you live in a hot climate, deal with it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Graphically intense games have not fazed this card in the slightest whether it be Crysis, Dead Space, Surpreme Commander, or any game currently on the market...I have yet to lag on a single game.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It is a large card and requires TWO power connectors in order to work - not much of an issue with today's power supplys but worth mentioning if you're not used to buying high end cards. Also make sure you have plenty of room around your PCIe slots because this baby is big.
