Best GPU I've ever had. 6 years and still strong!

Pros: - Very quiet
- Runs most games on Max/Ultra
- Looks sexy
- Very cool!

Cons: - I honestly cannot think of a single bad thing about this card after 6 years.

Other Thoughts: - If I could go back I would get this card all over again!
- I did not overclock this card. Never had to.
- Ran all MMOs (WoW, Rift, GW2, ESO), FPSs (BF, CoD, CS, KF), and MOBAs (LoL, Dota) on Max/Ultra (many, many games not listed). I havent ran into a single game that this card couldnt run well.

cool, but failing fans

Pros: Overall, the card has performed well. I haven't had a need to overclock it. I've not noticed any problems playing every game on maximum settings even 3 years down the road.

Cons: After 2.75 years of use, one of the cooling fans has begun to make a LOUD whirring noise. The bearings are definitely going out. I've tried cleaning it out with canned air, but it obviously needs to be replaced.

Additionally, I've had trouble with the drivers on and off. Catalyst Control Center doesn't like to work well with my Gigabyte board, and and work I do to it requires a few hours to sync it all up again.

Other Thoughts: I really haven't stressed this card at all. I haven't overclocked it (no need to yet) and I've kept it in pretty good working order. The hassle of updating it's drivers and getting all of it's features to function is enough to prevent me from fiddling with it.

I have 5 other fans just as old as the one in my case, and not a single one of them have experienced the failure of this one. I'm not sure if it's a bad fan design or an unlucky break, but it has ensured that I'll be replacing it soon.

Old review

Pros: It's a good GPU, back in 2011
(This is a very old review I forgot to feedback.)

Cons: On the day I received this card it was already pixelated when building my first computer setup.
I purchased this back in Summer 2011, and it had some problems on arrival.
It didn't pass the benchmark test as I was putting stress on this card: orange and red colored pixels appeared randomly on my desktop like it had chicken pox, and temp was going over 90C.

I returned it and bought a different gpu instead.

Other Thoughts: My brother has the exact card because he had also bought this in 2011 as well, and his works perfectly fine for him.

Runs WoW, Diablo 3, BF3, and many Steam games smoothly, but eventually he will need to upgrade his HD 6950 to something better.

good card, maybe not the best buy

Comments: I play Crysis 2 at 1600x900 resolution. With everything cranked all the way up (tessellation, dx11, ultra settings, everything) the game is playable but just barely. I almost always stay just over 30fps (the magic number for me) but every once in a while I dip under 20fps. It doesn't happen enough for me to lower the settings but it does happen.

It took a really long time to get my free game but I did get it.

I have not tried to overclock.
