This card replaced 2x 6950 in crossfire and does an outstanding job. I test it using BF3 and it holds up. It is still being underutilized as this card is a PCI-3 and I only have it in a PCI-2 for now. I plan to upgrade to the PCI-3 once the Intel 3930 is back in stock. The card is long and barely fits into my mid-case. If you are thinking of putting in a second for rossfire, be sure it will fit in the pci slots that align with your HDD bay.
I am a queit-pc enthusiest and this card gets LOUD when under load. That's why I removed one egg. Perhaps if this card wasn't $550+, I wouldn't have but come'on. I am purchasing the best video card out there and it's equiped with an old generation loud fan? Design it a little better or include a quiet fan for $1 more.
I've used a lot of cards and so far this definitely feels like the best. I will do more benchmarking and return with an update.
