Most Favorable Review

Great Card, but light on the cables - pay more for eyefinity

XFX FX-797A-TNFC Radeon HD 7970 Core Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: I can play Crysis maxed out, about 5 years after it finally came out. Played a bit of Bf3 maxed and Rage Maxed, all at 1920x1080. Very nice so far.

Cons: I payed full price, 560 dollars - hoped to setup Eyefinity but XFX figured they would rather save 10 dollars towards profit than throw in the proper connectors. This is light on the connectors - Real shame! (that is why only 4 stars) Now i can spend some time researching what kind of adapter i need for eyefinity (so far looks like an active mini dp to dvi or hdmi). How about a free game with it?

Overall Review: I would recommend getting another brand that has more cables, vote with your dollars. My vote was for AMD instead of NVIDIA even though NVIDIA makes great cards

This card doesn't work with Dell xps 8700

EVGA GeForce GTX 980 04G-P4-2982-KR 4GB SC GAMING, Silent Cooling Graphics Card

Pros: Good Card

Cons: Doesn't work with my computer- and far as i know with any xps 8700

Overall Review: This is purely informational for potential purchasers. Its not meant to bash the card.
