ASUS Radeon HD 7970 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card HD7970-3GD5-3DI2S

Pros: Runs a lot cooler than my old 5970. Overclocking so easy... Can do 1125 mhz and 1575 mhz without adjusting the voltage.

Cons: None

overkill?

Pros: Really fast, lower idle power, drives up to 3 screens. Ended up with the Powercolor brand due to the low availability of these cards. I've owned cards from Asus, Diamond, Gigabyte, Sapphire, Visontek, etc build quality is similar.

Cons: Power requirements, Card Length and Price.

Overall Review: Running this card @ 1920x1200 to play WoW, L4D2 and TF2. My system is a i7 920 @ 4.2ghz with 6gb of ram and 4 Vertex SSD's in Raid 0 so this card is right at home.

Pros: high efficiency, silent, modular, incredible build quality.

Cons: price

Overall Review: Previously I've owned about 20 power supply's from various manufactures. Mostly Antec units for my last build I picked up a cheaper SeaSonic unit due to some combo deal newegg had going on at the time. I couldn't have been more impressed with the quality. When I heard about this unit I had to upgrade. If you have any doubts google the reviews on this unit.
