Summary: great part of the radeon 6950 series. twin frozen really keeps the card cool when playing intense gpu games like BF3 and crysis. also this card is slightly faster than the original 6950 and almost matches the 6970.
For the price I paid for a used card I got a lot of performance, I think.

Summary: I bought this graphics card because I needed a replacement for my elderly nvidia 8800 gtx's. It is a strong performer, in my opinion, and at the same time it runs cooler by some twenty centigrades compared with the nvidia 8800.
Summary: This is a great budget card. It is a model from 2011, so it supports all of the latest software. The card, at 98% load for 3 hours, holds a steady temperature around 65 degrees Celsius (~145 F), well below temperature warning levels and relatively cool for a card of this power.
Summary: I upgraded from a XFX 5770, which was starting to be pretty stressed at 1920x1080. Rift is a great example: 20-25fps, slower during large battles, and this was with the fan going full out at 100%. I decided to get the MSI card because of the Twin Frozr cooling system.
Summary: I just built my first computer this spring and I have been very happy with this card. Installation was simple, no issues anywhere. It's handled everything I've thrown at it so far with no problems. It's super quiet and cool, the case fan is louder than it.
Summary: this card is amazing. I bought it to play battlefield 3 basically. It can run it all on ultra without a problem. On ultra i get between 50-90 (depending on where im at/looking) it usually stays around 60. If you turn the fans all the way on then your temps stay extremely low.
Summary: i have had this card for about four months and i have had some problems but it was my fault i do not recommend overclocking this card it does freeze but other then that it is great and it really is super cool not over heating problems at all and i have had this under some pretty intense loads and...
Summary: Pros: I've always had a lame computer for running games; always setting everything to low and lying to myself that gameplay > graphics... but then my wife gives me a grand to build a computer so I chose this sucker. Wow. I can finally run AAx8 in max res with everything turned up...
Summary: "yeah I'm not joking!! my new R6950 Twin Frozr II does artifact when using photoshop and MSpaint when the aero is ON! I know this sounds crazy because they don't push the card to it's full potential but it has been proved several times that the card is actually faulty! driver? UPDATED! bios?
