5 out of 5 eggsStill really good

Pros: Been running my own 6970 in my rig for over 3 years now. Got it overclocked and still runs 90% of games today maxed out. Shadow of mordor runs completely maxed out at 1080p aa on and everything though I haven't tried with the extra texture pack. Runs BF3 and 4 maxed out.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Just purchased this card for a friend who built a new rig. For the price it's unbeatable. It stomps anything in this price range from newer cards. I've used a few until I saw this was only 100$, now I'm recommending these. I really hope they stay in stock at this price till I get my taxes back. I really want to go crossfire again. Was running crossfire for over a year but one card died :/ it happenes, some parts last forever, some only a few years, some doa. This card is a beast though and for 100$, it's a good deal.

4 out of 5 eggsRadeon AX6970

Pros: Good for older motherboards that haven't had updated BIOS to accommodate newer video cards.
Price is great

Cons: Way behind even middle of the pack radeon r9 series cards and nvidia 700 series cards

Other Thoughts: Crossfire two of these to bump you up to the performance of a current medium-high performance single card.

5 out of 5 eggsViable upgrade for Phenom2 x4

Pros: Price to performance and It looks cool. I'm running a 4 year old rig with a Phenom II x4 965 and it nearly doubled my 3dMark2011 score (2758 to 5105). I upgraded from the XFX HD6770 and it was definitely worth the $99 from what I've seen. These results are from a stock setup, no OC and certainly nothing fancy. Other specs:

Corsair VX550 PSU
8GB RAM
Seagate 2TB HDD

Cons: Only had it for 1 day. Haven't had a chance to find anything to complain about.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if the Phenom II x4 will park its cores in Windows 7, but I ran 3D Mark with CPU parking enabled and disabled. I saw no difference in performance with this particular application.

5 out of 5 eggsPrice/Performance ratio unmatched!

Pros: Value!

Cons: None at this price range.

Other Thoughts: This card is an outstanding buy at just over $100 dollars! And only Newegg is selling it for this price! For those of you looking for a so-called budget card around the $40 to $80 I highly recommend you saves your pennies a little longer and opt for this card instead. If your power supply has the two additional pci express connectors required then by all means dont sell your self short

5 out of 5 eggs6970 PowerColor gaming Card

Pros: Just installed yesterday. prev. card it replaced was a 5850 1GB. It is louder than my old card But it should preform better. the heat this card puts off is in normal range 31c idle-60c at full load in mark vantage test that I did when I installed it. Researched this and it is a good temp. Will up date post if any thing goes wrong with it. Good bang for your buck Gaming card. Top-notch

Cons: Little louder than my old card, but better performance.
had no sound after install. 1) Had to go to control panel 2) Hardware and sound 3) then under Sound click manage audio devices and make Amd HDMI audio the default device and now I have sound.

Other Thoughts: One of the best cards for $ to performance at this time Don't pass it up you will regret it you could use two for crossfire for $200.00 cant beat that.

5 out of 5 eggsWas more than I expected

Pros: I received this item as part of a Shell Shocker deal. This is a gamer's card.
I did not do any gaming tests as this was supposed to be an office machine. (Shell shocker deal was really pretty good.)
Works great with Ubuntu Linux and a dual monitor setup.

Cons: The supplied PSU didn't have enough connectors.
Ensure you have at least a quality 500W (600W or better) with a PCI-E 6 pin and 8 pin connector. (Or two 6 pin connectors. It comes with an adapter.)

Other Thoughts: For an office machine, this device is too much. However, if you need bitcoin miner, this is not a bad choice.
