-Plays Bad Company 2 with all settings maxed.
-No artifact that I previously saw with my other card (gTX 285)
-Was easily able to unlock to 6970
-Set up was easy


-Can run hot (I'll explain this in other thoughts)

Other Thoughts:

Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase.
1) I got the card for $230 from Newegg with Rebate. Can't beat that.
2) I unlocked to 6970 and pushed the power control settings up 10%
3) Can run hot, but EASILY fixable. I noticed that with my settings (6970 bios + increased power control) the card doesn't know how to kick up the fan under high load. Mine never goes above 37%. But there is an easy solution. Under Catalyst Control Center, I manually set the fan at 50%. It makes it kind of loud (not nearly as loud as 100%), but I never go over 70 degrees while playing. I've got the fan down to 45% and still have no problems. When I'm ready to play, I kick the fan up; when I'm done, I turn it on auto.

I'm very satisfied with my price to performance ratio. Sad that Newegg has this item deactivated
