Summary: Pros: Runs all my games at max settings in 1920x1080 very quiet and stays cool under stress only paid $155! Can run 6 monitors in Eyefinity! very sturdy Cons: Had to buy a new PSU to run it, but that was my fault for not doing the research. Other Thoughts: All around a great card!
Summary: I received a used card. I know this because the card was loaded with the 6970 BIOS set to switch position 1. When I switch to position 2 it is a 6850 again. Someone changed the BIOS and sent the card back, and they (the OEM) obviously did not flash it back.
Summary: Had this card since August last year and worked great. Until recently it stopped working. Shorted my board as well. No problem. Next time....I go with Nvida. Thanks AMD, u make a believer out of me. More details you can comment and I'll reply but I feel i should waste no more time on this card.
Awesome cant believe a dual bios reference card is still around
