At first I was pretty enthusiastic about this card as it was nailing everything in my game collection with solid settings, but the card has crashed the system numerous times when running Eve Online and changing settings did nothing. This is apparently a known issue with the 7000 series and the developer and AMD are each pointing at the other. A few other games are affected too though I don't own any of them.
Were I not an Eve subscriber and otherwise didn't play any of the games in question I'd no doubt be giving this thing five eggs, but it seems that AMD/ATI is still dogged by compatibility and driver issues so I must advise anyone considering this to find out whether any of the games they play suffer Bad Things with a 7000.
