Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I tried the 7970, got horrible stuttering, artifacting, game freezes, black screens. RMA city.
In Witcher 2 the 7970 would drop to 10 FPS in cutscenes, would not do Ultra settings at all.
The Classified Ultra (in 2x SLI), although slightly less powerful, will do Witcher 2 in Ultra WITH UBER SAMPLING ON, and get 40 FPS, which is totally amazing. I mean, they don't even test cards at the review sites with Uber sampling on.
The drivers have had the time to be developed, that makes the whole difference. Yes the GTX 580 is a year old, but it takes a year to work out the bugs.
The 7970 is not yet ready for market, in my opinion. Get these!

Other Thoughts: I tried to power my new ZR30w at 2560x1600 with a pair of 6950's. A mistake.
Now I learn that I need an $1100 video setup to get the FPS even in the ball park. Fortunately, I have the money.
I love the guys who say they are building a gaming PC for $800. Mine is over 3K and still rising, and that's without pcie 3.0, socket 2011, etc.

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't want to RMA the whole set when I know that 3 of the sticks run great. With my luck, I will get a new set with TWO bad sticks. Maybe G.Skill will allow me to return the single bad stick for a replacement?
