5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: I bought this card off craigslist locally for 200$, great deal. The original owner said he had this card for a little less than a year, got rid of it because he wanted something that was more compatible with his "hackintosh build" what a noob.
dust kicker runs on startup.

Cons: uses a buttload of power compared to cards of similair performance from the current generation.

Other Thoughts: this cards big, watch out.
i put it in my BitPhoenix Prodigy MicroITX case.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card with the right drivers.

Pros: This card is an amazing card now that I have installed the most recent driver update from amd 12.8. Using all high quality settings and is capable of being overclocked beyond factory default which is already preclocked higher than a normal HD 6970. Currently running 50-80 FPS with 8X EQ AA. The cooling system on this bad boy keeps my card around 50c-60c when under load. 5 stars if it wasn't for the extremely long wait to get the correct drivers allowing complete utilization of the 6970. Great price for what it actually is and I'm very happy now that I can run the card optimally.

Cons: Until recently this was actually the low point of my new build because the drivers that were currently released from amd were defect with this card. The colors were off, some of the graphics options were inaccessible(what!?), and the scaling ratio to your monitor was always incorrect. I was running a backdated driver (12.2) till 12.8 came out in which I had to recalibrate the colors on my HD display several times to get perfect. Being an HD card it has built in color corrections and features which were not displaying accurately until this latest driver. Was an extreme headache. Not really the card's fault as much as it was AMD. 4 stars because of the garbage drivers till recently making me wait months to see the full potential of the card.

Other Thoughts: You might think that the drivers are not really related to the card but they do have a direct correlation. Without the proper driver you may not even see half of this card's or any AMD card's true potential so just be aware of what you may be getting yourself into when buying AMD. Next card will most likely be Nvidia. Contemplated changing this card for the GTX 580/590 Turbo several times but stuck with the card and now with the 12.8 drivers it is 150% better and well worth the $360 I spent. AMD seems to have many problems with their drivers whether or not it's a new or older card.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic card for years to come

Pros: This card is fantastic, i decided on this one because of a sale newegg had and the spec's were more than impressive compared to other competitiors. It's been close to 4 months now since the install on my new build. Runs BF3 on average 40 FPS maxed settings, 1920x1080 resolution. Tera runs on average of 80 FPS with max settings. Cooling is fantastic on this card. I plan on X-Firing this card very soon. Need to make some upgrades first

Cons: Not really a con just something to be aware of, this card is large. Check your case size and mobo if you plan on a X-Fire with 2 of these. I will have close to a .25 inch gap between these cards.

5 out of 5 eggsStable and Cool running

Pros: Ran great out of the box. Easily OC's and running stable at 980/1485 on 1.28 volts. With fan speed set at 75%, you can barely hear it.

Hit 6510 on3D Mark 11. Heat was no issue, as the temp only topped out at 68. Idles in the mid to uppers 30's.

Plays any game I have, without a hitch..

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Will be buying another to X-Fire, when I move up to three monitors.

4 out of 5 eggsSuper Card

Pros: I can finally play DCS A-10C at respectable frame-rates at 3840x1024 resolution which was the goal for this card. For everything else I have it's overkill. It came with Dirt3. Stays cool. Matches other pcbs in my case.

Cons: BIG! Says only 2, but does in fact take up 3 slots. This forced me to evict my Audigy 2 Zs Platinum Pro PCI sound card. Fortunately my secondary pcie slot, which isn't good for much as far as crossfire (see GA-P55M-UD2 mobo) is still available. Got an X-Fi titanium pcie for $36. Go newegg! And I'm not sure if it's a driver issue or a temp issue yet, but occasionally on games, it will hang my computer and I'll have to restart it. Still looking into that one. Still love this card.

5 out of 5 eggsStupendous card!!!!

Pros: AWESOME!!!
Silent, Yes Very Very silent I was surprised it was that silent.
HUGE behemoth of a card but gorgeous looking
Feels very sturdy and light for its size
Eyefinity galore
2BG RAM and is overclocked
Plays all games current and new ultra with average fps @ 75+
Card runs very very cool even under stress. no wonder it is quiet.
Its a RADEON!!!!
It can play Pac-Man and Tetris smoothly!!!

Cons: These card series is reaching its EOL (End of Life). Buy it before they are gone!!

Well the only quip i have is that the power port connectors are recessed. They work okay connecting the card but if you have to remove the connectors...oh can be tricky...

Other Thoughts: I did the un-boxing and oh! Don't ever underestimate the size of this card. It looks small on the posted pictures, and even on videos online where people are reviewing the card. When you see this card in person you will be humbled by its sheer size, the way it looks, them heat pipes sticking out...oh and the sturdy feel of a card well built, pretty looking blue flavors. Anyway the card did not fit my case. Lian Li V354. The card will fit in terms of length but the heat pipes interfered with the power supply. I placed the card in a cooler master haf 912 and it fits perfectly. Eyefinity works awesome with this card and the 2GB is sufficient to run all my games in ultra mode across all three screens. What surprised me? the silence...I did not expect the card to be this silent but it is very very quiet. Oh i got 2, Dirt3 coupons!!! They all work!!! THANKS HIS....THANKS NEWEGG!!!
