Ultra Durable VGA™ Features and Benefits
Lower GPU Temperature
Ultra Durable VGA board provides dramatic cooling effect on lowering both GPU and memory temperature by doubling the inner copper layer of PCB.
Better Overclocking Capability
Ultra Durable VGA board reduces voltage ripples in normal and transient states, and thus effectively lowers noises and ensures higher overclocking capability.
Decreased Power Switching Loss
Ultra Durable VGA board allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance. The less circuit impedance, the more stable flow of current and can effectively improve power efficiency.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Couldn't be happier with this product. I currently own two of these in crossfire and posted a 12328 Fire Strike score on 3dMark. This GPU in crossfire is almost overkill and outperforms much more costly Nvidia GPU's.

Cons: This card is voltage locked so for overclockers it will be a problem but having two of them I see no need for overclocking.

4 out of 5 eggsGigabyte GV-R797TO Radeon

Pros: Everything can't find anything really wrong with it, except once when it made a funny sound, but I just turned it off and left it off for a couple of days. Havent had any issues since.

Cons: Can be a little noisy at times when playing BF4, or Crysis, or any high taxing games. Expensive at the time for what I paid.

1 out of 5 eggswas good, not anymore

Pros: was great first 3 weeks, ran stuff nicely, was a 500 bucks well spent, and then... poop,
But this is how i FIXED IT, Downloaded"msi afterburner"
and set core clock to 800, and memory clock to 1000, and no more lines of death, have fun with a slower card and no crash's

Cons: then my computer crash's, not knowing what made it crash i then just went on my way, and it crash's again, after 2 days, and then after a month i figure out that its the video card and its too late to send it back. so im stuck with the poop..,,

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card

Pros: Fast, Ooodles of out puts, quiet while at idle, well made with lots of cooling, Quality build with excellent support.

Cons: BIG, this is a big card. Cooling, when running full out you may need extra intakes.

Other Thoughts: Wow very very impressed with this card. Excellent value for the performance with rock solid driver support. Easily overclockable (but for what I do not needed).

5 out of 5 eggsBF4 on ultra at ~75fps

Pros: I came from a 6800GT so this card is incredible to me.

Paired with an i5 4670k I can run everything like Tomb Raider, Hitman Absolution, Dishonored, BF4 beta on Ultra and the feeling is awesome when I could only run League of Legends on Low and that was pretty much the only game I could play.

Cons: I do have trouble with Borderlands 2. I have no idea why but other than that, this card is ridiculously awesome.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Amazing performance. Benchmarks well against other (more expensive) cards.

Cons: Heavy. Sags a bit but I used a zip tie from the sagging corner to a drive bay that seems to have taken the stress off of the PCI.

Other Thoughts: I think if I go mobile (LAN party etc.) I will remove the card for transport.
