MSI Radeon HD 7970 DirectX 11 R7970-2PMD3GD5 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Well constructed, looks good. Great FPS in many games. I have two in CrossFire with 80-120 in most parts of Skyrim, BF3, Far Cry 3. Also using them with World Community Grid and it goes through work units at an impressive rate. Runs fairly cool, fans don't need to be turned up very high, and noise is reasonable, even quiet depending on fan settings.

Cons: No cons with MSI's card, so I will not deduct eggs from their product. However I have some issues with AMD's drivers. Some games have serious errors, and a few are just unplayable, until new drivers are released. Even with updated drivers there can still be bugs.

Other Thoughts: Despite the driver annoyances, I am impressed with this card for its GPGPU power with WCG.

Pros: Works well at listed speed and timings. Fits under my Noctua heatsink. Looks good.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Took a while to get the memory stable at the listed speed, but this was not any fault of the memory. CPU needed voltage adjustments to System Agent. Again, not a problem with the memory itself.
