SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 DirectX 11 100352-2L 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 850 MHz
  • Boost Clock 925MHz
  • 1 x DVI 1 x HDMI 2 x Mini DisplayPort
  • 1792 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 3.0 x16

Pros:

Installed easy. This was an upgrade from my Radeon HD 5770 and I'm pleased, though I'm not doing backflips or anything. I primarily play FPS games, so framerates are important, and this card doesn't disappoint.

I don't hear it ever, I have it inside a Rosewill Blackhawk case with stock fans and passive fan speeds (plugged into PSU only) and I can't hear the case fans sitting 3 feet from it, and I can never hear this GPU either.

Runs warmer than I am used to under load, but stays quiet while doing so and doesn't seem to affect my case temps. Stable under stock clocks and ridiculous loads. Runs dual monitors fine (two 24"). I've even run Minecraft maxed out on one screen and played TF2 on the other, no problems.

Cons:

Doesn't look physically the prettiest but it cools well and is the right price. Pretty long and heavy, but that's not uncommon. Framerates aren't AMAZING on brand new games on Ultra settings, but that is to be expected. Crossfire or OC this card to crush everything.

Other Thoughts:

Runs Planetside 2 at 30+FPS on Ultra settings all the time (larger battles I might be CPU bottlenecked with my Core i5 2500k, and could get more FPS if I oc'd my CPU.)

Crushes games like CoH and Starcraft 2.

Looked great and ran really smooth on Ultra setting on Sleeping Dogs.
