You get a 79xx board that's slightly crippled but a much better deal than buying a 7950. Also, this can be OC very easily and CF with a 7950, making it a good choice for those who prefer to upgrade gradually.
Runs a little hot, must be careful with how you have fans setup.
Be very careful how you have your fans setup with this card. The fan blows air onto the card and it vents from all sides - meaning you can't have air blowing at the card from the side or hot air will get trapped in the area. With my 2x 6850s, I had several internal fans blowing directly onto them with good results; with this card however, it caused overheating issues. Instead, place the cards blowing to the top of the card and sucking out air from the sides and bottom. After making that change with my LanBoy Air case setup my temps during overclock dropped by 10*
