Summary: I bought this card 2+ years ago and works like a charm with the major part of the games that I do have. Now in 2014 I start noticing that some newer games has frames issue as they demand more horse power.
Summary: These older cards run hotter but pack a lot more rendering horsepower in Crossfire mode. I bought this card because I had another one exactly like it, and I found that it runs perfectly and had the stock firmware installed. It was with much gratitude that I did not find this card overclocked or abused, and that it was a perfect teammate for it's identical twin on an MSI 970A-G46 CrossfireX board.
Summary: First of all, my card has a referebce design with a blower cooler. It was succesfully unlocked to run as HD 6970 OC (925MHz/6000MHz) and performs better, than R9 270x, what makes me happy. Besides the fact of some extra noise under high load, this card is still a very good choice for everyone in this price segment. I use only 1 DP and 1 HDMI ports and I don't think that anyone need all 5 ports, but it's good that they exist.
Why buy a titan when 3 of these set up right will do the same job.

Summary: #1 got this for my monster I am building to run 3 in parallel. I love AMD stuff tried to jump ship & snag a Ge Force but couldn't do it, my CPU is even an 8 core AMD. Gotta love this mainly for the 2 GB and you can run 3 monitors but it does run hot so if you grab this better just pop the face plate off and run a liquid cooled set up, oh yes make sure you have a full or extra large board cause this is a big boy.
Still powerful enough to hold against new generation games coming out!

Summary: An amazing graphics card for such a good price. Yeah they are a bit older now compared to the new generation cards that came out recently. But, the 6950 can run just about anything and if you drop a second card in with crossfire it will blow you away. Bottom line this card is worth the money and will leave you satisfied with the power from it. I'm currently on my third HIS 6950 and been able to play anything maxed out.
Summary: Still pretty powerful, even though the 8xxxx series is "just around the corner'. Never had any problems installing, hardware or software, runs everything I throw at it, has enough "out" ports to fill my desk with monitors and as far as I can tell, it hasn't melted yet. Cons: Doesn't make me breakfast.
Summary: This was a nice "cheaper" alternative to HIGH END gaming with 3 monitors without having to buy the latest and greatest for a while. (Have to buy an adapter to make it work) I purchased 2 of these bad boys and have been VERY happy- it's been super reliable. I am a very heavy, daily gamer/photoshopper. One downside is the fans.. fortunately all 7 fans in my rig are somewhat loud.. so this didn't bother me- but make no mistake... like any other device- work hard = fan hard.
