Pros: worked amazing for about a month
Cons: after one month windows gave BSOD it disappeared from the bios every other boot, wouldnt boot into windows when it did show up, and then finally it just disappeared all together and wouldnt show up at all anymore.
Other Thoughts: $100 paper weight, do NOT buy unless you want to replace it once a month.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: this card looks amazing and is designed to overclock.........that is about it.
Cons: cant actually overclock at all pretty much due to the voltage limit of 1.060v so unless you consider 925 to 1000 overclocking and pushing it to the max then this card cant overclock 925 isnt even stable really due to vdrop. seriously cant even keep it stable at stock and you market it as an overclocking card? the video bios on this card is horrible voltages are vastly limited standard cards go to 1.175v as stock and max 1.3-1.4v as overclock so a limit of 1.060v as max is just ridiculous thats not even stock voltages for the reference design.
Other Thoughts: im RMA'ing this card right now ive tried and tried and tried to fix it with tweaking and trying different drivers because i just love the way it looks and the 6 monitor support. but its just hopeless unless asus actually releases a standard video bios to unlock the standards, this card is just a good looking paperweight and from my research they have no intent of doing so. my suggestion to anyone looking at this card is do NOT buy it unless you just have alot of money for paperweightsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: this card is great fast and can handle anything you throw at it VERY happy i bought it
gets high fps on everything no problems at all aside from the mass amounts of drive bugs but thats not the fault of asus or the card
anyone who is having issues blame drivers not the card go download the rc11 drivers or try some other drivers before blaming the card so far the only ones fully supporting the 7970 are 12.6 and they are bad cause artifacts and many other things (much like everyone is sending them back for) so go download rc11 for 7970
even with driver issues my opinion is this card is 100% worth every penny
Cons: had major driver issues BSOD's artifacts crashing freezing you name it just like many other people here but it wasnt the cards fault its the drivers AMD's drivers arent ready for this monster yet download the RC11 JUST for this card (7970) upside freezing artifacts bsod's all of that goes away its not the cards fault people bad side cant get amd's control center to work with the rc11 driver but oh well card works so if you're having problems dont jump straight to blaming the card or asus download some new drivers like the rc11 version (only one ive got to work right)
Other Thoughts: here is the rc11 link for people experiencing issues with the current drivers they are a bit outdated but the only ones ive been able to get working properly with the card
