3 out of 5 eggsGreat card, but not meant to last.

Pros: Capable of running 1080p 60FPS games at medium to high settings.
Runs very quiet.
Absolutely fantastic for beginner gaming.

Cons: No back plate.
Requires WAY too much power (it's worth the buy, but get a new power supply for it).
Drivers often crash.
CD was warped, but downloading from the website isn't that bad.

Other Thoughts: It's something that's REALLY worth the money. Honestly though it is very power hungry so make sure you have a decent power supply to go with it. (Probably spend on the power supply with what you saved on getting this card!)

3 out of 5 eggsDriver Disc Came Warped

Pros: The hardware installation was fine, have yet to really test this baby out, as I just got it today. I don't suspect I will have any issues, though.

Cons: Driver Installation CD arrived warped, does not seat correctly in my DVDRW drive, thus, will not read.. So now I am left with going to Sapphire Tech's website and manually downloading the drivers from there. I don't know who's to blame here, but I'm not happy about the state it was in. I have never had a problem until I saw the disc.

Other Thoughts: Would like to know who's responsible for the warped CD... but I should be fine downloading the drivers from the website... just have to waste a little more time. I have high hopes for this video card.

2 out of 5 eggsDual X Radeon HD 6970

Pros: Price for expected performance.

Cons: Just can't ever seem to get one to work properly. Always have some kind of issue with AMD/ATI/Radeon cards.

Other Thoughts: The card worked at first install, but then started lagging on Minecraft. Ran some older games like Star Wars Jedi Knight and similar games of the era perfectly with high frame rates. after several hours the card started to crash and reboot my system. Tried updating to the latest drivers, same thing, just wouldn't play longer than a couple of minutes before crashing. Thought it might be the MOBO I installed it on. Updated the MOBO bios and still had the same problem. the power supply running this card was an EVGA 750 B2 so that's not the problem. Tried it my gaming machine I regularly use and it still crashed after a couple of minutes of game play. I should've known not to buy AMD/ATI/Radeon cards, I have always had problems with them. That is why I buy Nvidia cards, Nvidia has always been stable, solid, fast, and great performers for me. Two eggs for the fact that Newegg got me and RMA fast and Refunded within 1 1/2 weeks. Did have to pay almost $12 to ship it back though.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect upgrade

Pros: Great performance
Worked well with over clocking
Perfect performance with a great price tag

Cons: "Forced me" to upgrade everything else (case included) to match its performance, this getting me in hot water with the wife. Wait, only half is a con.

Other Thoughts: I bought my pc from a big box company not knowing a thing about pc's or what to look for on a gaming rig. I walked out with a $600 pain in my side. So the other month I decided to upgrade my graphics from onboard (told you I got taken) to this gem. Negative is that I have now dropped an additional $600 so far and I am getting a gaming rig done right, and it all started with this sapphire!

The new card resulted on me having to get a new power supply, thus bottle necking my cpu. So of course I upgraded that and the mother board. And what's a new pc with out upgrading storage to SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsoverheated every 10 min of gaming

Pros: none that I saw

Cons: Card was ridiculously heavy for starters. after I hooked it up and installed the latest drivers the card overheated and caused a crash after 10 min of gaming every time! even downgraded the voltage and clock. didn't help. Got a 750ti instead and it was much better!

5 out of 5 eggsHD6970 Budget gaming system

Pros: Cheap. 2gb memory. Non-reference cooling.

Cons: Replaced an nVidia card in a budget gaming tower my son uses because the buffer was only 1gb. Not really a con as it turned out not to be the card, but heres my experience if it helps anyone else. Installed the card with the latest drivers from AMD(14.4) and on day 2 (didn't get to mess with it much after install) the system started hanging (long freezes) and throwing BSOD after gaming roughly 20mins. Removed the card and installed it in my own tower (Win 7) and it ran error free. Installed back into other tower (Win XP) and it went back to misbehaving. Uninstalled Cat. 14.4 and installed 13.4 from the included driver disk and haven't had an error in over 24 hours with many many hours of hectic Borderlands 2 co-op. Errors and crashes have all stopped. I can only conclude that Microsoft ending support for XP means 14.4 isn't WHQL for XP.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed pretty fast

Pros: I replaced my HD6950 with this card for the performance to price ratio. The DualX fan setup is very quiet and the card stayed nice and chilly in my case.

Cons: As soon as the card was installed I got some artifacts, "fish tanking" as i like to call it. Checked the driver and tried a beta version, seemed to solve the problem. Next day the screen would randomly freeze, go blank, and return with "driver failed and was restored." Finally, on the third day of ownership, after about 30 minutes I got horizontal lines followed quickly by "no signal." Put it into another system and got the same results. Then also put my old HD6950 back in and had no trouble at all. RMA time, will update when new card is in.

Other Thoughts: I was a little nervous about the lack of reviews for this particular card. Usually I purchase products that have a good amount of reviews so I can get an idea of what sort of things to be looking for while I use the product (noise, heat, compatibility issues and so on). I couldn't pass up the price so, unfortunately, I impulsed this one. I have since done some research on common HD6970 problems and this seems to be one of them. I will say however that Sapphire has a pretty knowledgeable and easy to use customer service line as well as online technical support. This is my first Sapphire product and I am pleased with the company in how they have handled everything with me. No matter what your getting there is always a chance for failure so having good customer service is paramount and, in my opinion, Sapphire hits the mark well.

Manufacturer Response:

We are very sorry that you have had problems with your graphics card.

We do hope that your RMA with Newegg goes smoothly
