best 6950 hands down
Pros: Best 6950 out there. Super quiet (I cant hear it at all, my hard drive is the loudest in my rig), and cool (never above 60C), runs everything on ultra, it is shorter than the other 6950 and it is OC'd to 880 right out of the box. On top of ALL of that it is cheaper than the other 6950 with same specs. Must buy
Overall Review: You wont regret this card. No problems with drivers, just make sure you have all the windows updates. Better than the nvidia drivers (referring to 650ti not too long ago. I returned it and decided to spend a bit more for the quality). With free dirt 3 and deus ex, this is a no brainer
not really tooless...
Pros: it works
Cons: not exactly tooless... the provided plastic 'screws' are meant to be holders that you just push in.. but it doesnt really work. i ended up using screws my case (antec 900) provided to secure the bracket.
Overall Review: save yourself an extra dollar and buy the cheaper version.
Pros: running bf3, crysis 3 at max settings @1080p read other thoughts
Cons: a bit on the loud side and quite toasty, but i expect this from a reference design
Overall Review: running at 1080p only, i know some of you would point out and say a 280x would be enough, but i require minimum 60fps at all times at max settings; also future-proofing. furthermore i use this for bc mining, hence the compute prowess eliminates the 780, and titan because of the price
