5 out of 5 eggsMonster Card

Pros: Takes all the newest games (Assassins Creed III, Far cry 3, Dishonored, Etc.) and plays them with ease on Ultra Settings. Even takes all the load off the processor. (2% load max on Far Cry 3, AMD Fx-8150) Default cooler is pretty effecient keeping card at max of 36 C under full load at 75% fan speed.

Cons: Automatic fan speed doesn't regulate well enough so I have to manually set the fan speed before opening a game.

Other Thoughts: Card is like a brick. Truly a Monster in size and capability.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card!

Pros: Extremely overclock able. I have not pushed this card beyond its already overclocked frequencies much but it will run at 1200mhz core easily. Even at 1100mhz the cards are very silent. I must admit I was a big fan of XFX but I come from the old school when Diamond was king. I'm really happy I did.

Cons: None yet as long as the 8000 series cards dont come out right after my 30 days is up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CARD

Pros: POWERFUL CARD...its cost money but: if you want to play you got to pay. i had a gtx 570 classified edition and upgraded to 7970. big difference in performance. download latest drivers from AMD website. overclocked it, did some benchmarks. no problems at all so far. cant wait when its goes on special....crossfire will be amazing....already its a strong card. in my opinion, buying 2 of these cards in crossfire is more worth it than buying 1 gtx 690....why spend 1000-1200$ . anyways very happy with the card and a 5 year warranty. good stuff

Cons: you got to pay to play

Other Thoughts: i'm a tech and a hardcore gamer. its a good buy

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Card runs quite, features a dual bios switch. OC'd nicely to ghz edition levels and I'm sure it could do more.

Cons: I'm fairly certain you can get this same exact card for cheaper and just increase the clock and memory speeds yourself. I don't see any difference between the two.

4 out of 5 eggsSave Your Money

Pros: Well, AMD's drivers definitely do not belong in this section. Single monitor? All games, no framerate drops.
Crossfire is smoother on GCN than on VLIW4 or 5, oh and bitcoin monster! Each one of these cards can generate about 90 dollars worth of coins a month when overclocked properly!

Cons: Here's what stands out in my mind: I have a standard diamond card clocked at 1200mhz core with just a little bit of overvolting. There's really no reason to buy this expensive version of the SAME card. Honestly buy the cheapest reference cooler design you can, and overclock the snot out of it.

5 out of 5 eggsI like this card

Pros: Quiet, fast card. Install drivers from AMD site for Win7 Ultimate. Playing Mass Effect 3 using top settings and highest resolution for a game on my TV using HDMI cable. Graphics and color amazing. The same top settings for Deus EX and Battle field 3. I can set Skyrim on Ultra settings except texture quality. I played these games for hours with no crashes or card overheating. Just in case called Diamond tech support. They confirmed that I have 5 years warranty on this card and they will replays a card as many times as I need during this time if card is defective. My power supply is 850 W.

Cons: A card is big. It’s bigger than my old ATI 5870 card. I had to cut part of my hard drives cage in order to install this card in middle tower ATX case.

Other Thoughts: A card is over clocked. It’s supposed to shorten card’s life or can create problems, but with 5 years of warranty shouldn't be a problem. Anyway if you want to play games on highest settings you have to change cards every 3-4 years.

1 out of 5 eggs490 Dollar Paperweight

Pros: None

Cons: Drivers supplied with card do not work on Windows 7. Plagued by constant driver crashes and lockups. Tried 6-7 different drivers, reseating the card and re-wiring case with 1200 watt PSU. Still does not work whatsoever. Cannot even watch a youtube video for more than a few seconds without restarting my computer. No help from ATI/AMD/Diamond. Never buying an ATI card as long as I live.
