4 out of 5 eggsDouble to triple the fps!

Pros: I'm getting 2 to 3 times the fps i was having with 2 8800 ultra sli!And Playing crysis ultra high, The saboteur, Cofd mw2 and stressing with Furmark the temps never went higher than 33c!!!

Cons: 2d problem that lots of people are complaining!!!!!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsNo frills

Pros: Worked right out of the box. 5970 awesome-ness with EK waterblock. Like other 5xxx series, power consumption is very low (all things considered). Haven't tried overclocking beyond stock overclocks, but runs stable out of the box and very cool (GPU's didn't peak over 41C on my rig).

Cons: The bundle is very OEM-like. Considering this is the most expensive 5970 out there (perhaps the most expensive vid card?) I feel like the packaging and overall appearance is appalling. You get an assortment of cables, a relatively worthless quick-start guide, and that is about it. No detailed manual (this is note worthy because the card comes with 2 barb sizes and spacers). I got lucky because I've had EK waterblocks before so I knew how to attach the fittings, etc, but this card is not user friendly. Note: you do not need to use the spacers. Additionally, the driver CD is ATi's OEM version, no utilities, nothing. Not a deal breaker, but for the price PowerColor really needs to step up.

Other Thoughts: All together, I'm pretty happy with mine. Price is high, but it comes with a stellar EK waterblock installed (complete with backplate) which is worth the price of admission. For those that plan on picking up a 5970 and adding a waterblock yourself, take a serious look at the LCS. The cost is about on par with the DIY option, and you don't void the warranty or run the risk or improper installation.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is amazing

Pros: This graphics card is un-explainable. I bought two, and new a PSU and have them Crossfire'd. These are dank. Like no lie this is the best investment I have ever bought. I can run Crysis on full settings! You need to get this graphics card!

Cons: None! But it takes up two slots.

Other Thoughts: Water cooled runs pretty well.
