Summary: Plays everything i throw to it at 1920x1080 and 1920x1200. Good temps in both idle and full load. Haven't overclocked it, hope i got a good chip. I plan to CrossFire it and get 7950 / 7970 performance for future-proofing.
Summary: Getting about 50-60 FPS in BF3, and got about 40-45 FPS in the BF4 beta. We'll see how it does tomorrow when I install BF4 actual release. Being that I was able to get this at such a good price with prime shipping as well, I have no complaints. I had to find the october release of the rebate on another site, since amazon only had the september rebate posted but thats ok.

Summary: I have been swapping out video cards since the late 90's when 3DFX was the top dog. Then, it was VooDoo and ATI that I dealt with, then around 2001, it was Nividia until 2013. In this day and age, practically any decent video card can get the job done as long as you have a powerful system to back it up. However, in today's world, we are living in a time where video and Youtube rules. Yeah, I was into video back in the late 90's, but now video has made a comeback of such.
Summary: As other reviewers have said, this is just about the best card you can get for the price. While I bought the card when the AMD 7000 line came out I did upgrade later to a 7970 when Crysis 3 came out and I could only run it at median. Other than that this card has been able to run every game at Ultra with little to no issue.
Summary: I bought this video card from frys as a upgrade from my Radeon hd6850 1gig. i will say this is a great video card for the price. i play sc2 mostly but where as my radeon 6850 it could play at high, unless you played marine arena i would have to set it to medium. this upgrade has maxed out the settings and looks amazing. it has a "gpu tweak" which allows up to change fan speed, memory clock, and gpu clock.
Summary: I finally replaced my 8800 GTS 512 with this card and I am thrilled with the results! everything I've thrown at it has run perfectly; Bioshock Infinite on Ultra settings, Skyrim with Hires textures and graphical mods, everything runs smoothly.
Summary: Ordered this when my nvidia 8800 started to artifact. The PC was too old to invest in a new top of the line video card, so I found something better than the 8800 at a very reasonable price. This video card runs games and 1080p playback without an issue.
