Fast, reasonably efficient.
Loud, sketchy drivers.
Normally I like to stick to nVidia cards, but I decided to give this a try. Quite a bit faster than my old GTX 580 - however that is where the benefits stop. This card is very loud (it's actually hilarious if you crank it up to 100%). Also the drivers or card itself are nowhere near as reliable as my 580. I never had a single crash of my PC with my 580 in there for almost a year, however with this card in about a month I've had it crash on me probably a dozen times. Do yourself a favour and pick up a GTX 680 instead.

Amazing card, king of the hill for right now, cool temps, fast fast fast.
i bought 2 oof these for a crazy crossfire setup and its the best, coolest, fastest cards i have ever boought. the performance gains ov the 6970's i was running are just incredible. if i could i would buy a third just to overkill every game.

the price may be high but its worth every penny.

- unbelievably fast
- runs quiet
- runs everything!
- comes with all adapters :)
- expensive, but i knew what i was getting myself into
- big, just fits my mid size case
- drivers are not great, but thats expected from a brand new card
upgrading from 5770 to crossfire 7970 is unbelievable! runs all games on ultra with no problem! cant wait for new drivers to come out for better performance....not that id need it, but its nice to have :)

3GB of vram
Runs games no problem on eyefinity
Comes with all the adapters for eyefinity
Stock cooler.. can get a little loud while gaming
Replaced my gtx 460 sli with this because I am now gaming on 3 screens. All my games are running a lot better now that I have the extra vram.

Overclocks like crazy I was able to get it up to 1.125GHZ/1575MHZ on stock voltage and on stock fan settings.

The fan can get loud once it hits 45% but I expected that because it is a stock cooler. Maybe eventually I will put a aftermarket cooler on it.

Overall this GPU is awesome!

amazing clock speeds
bit pricey
simply amazing, run'in 1125mhz core and 1575mhz mem no problems, which is the max CCC will allow for now. can't wait to see what it can do after a couple driver updates.

Experience: 3 Days

Plenty of overclocking headroom
is quieter than my 570 was
smaller then last gen.
Price, but you get what you pay for.
didn't come with a mini-dp to dp adapter.
Seems to be underclocked by default..running at max CCC settings perfectly. be interesting to see how far I can take it.

This card might be the best video card upgrade since the 4870 hit the streets.

Since we prob won't see any competition for the next 6 months at least it is a no brainer to pick this up if you can find one.
