1 out of 5 eggsStay away from this masochist

Pros: It looks pretty

Cons: Its longer than your typical, already massive card. This card WILL NOT work in anything. Abit IX38 quadGT doesnt display video, Jetway HZ03-GT-V2 doesnt display video, and just bought a Asus M5A99FX Pro. The worst part about the asus mobo is that this card is detected in windows ONLY if i install my old 2900 pro and crossfire it to this card. You would think that means the motherboard detects it but when you try to use it by itself, it doesnt work. This card has been a nightmare. Never again powercolor.

Other Thoughts: Powercolor support is abysmal. I asked them if their card had any issues with the asus board and they said it shouldnt, and then suggested i look at three INTEL MOTHERBOARDS AFTER I ASKED THEM ABOUT AN AMD BOARD. Youd also be shocked to discover they dont even have support forums. Honestly powercolor, i wish newegg would let me put incitements of violence in my review so i could get across how much i wish i never bought your card.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent 7970

Pros: Purchased two for crossfire. Nice looking in Switch 810 clear window. Very difficult to find. This version is clocked at 925Mhz out of the box. Not sure why PowerColor made this version but mine hits 1150Mhz in crossfire. This version is identical to the PCS+ with exception of the out of box overclock. The back plate was another selling point for me.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was lucky to find these available very early one morning and grabbed two.
