Summary: - If I could go back I would get this card all over again! - I did not overclock this card. Never had to. - Ran all MMOs (WoW, Rift, GW2, ESO), FPSs (BF, CoD, CS, KF), and MOBAs (LoL, Dota) on Max/Ultra (many, many games not listed). I havent ran into a single game that this card couldnt run well.
Pros: - Very quiet - Runs most games on Max/Ultra - Looks sexy - Very cool!
Cons: - I honestly cannot think of a single bad thing about this card after 6 years.
Summary: The actual video card is great, but the fans started making LOTS of grinding noise within a year of ownership. Forced to buy a $50 cooler elsewhere to enjoy my computer in a tranquil environment or if I want to sell the card and not have it returned for being "broken".
Summary: I really haven't stressed this card at all. I haven't overclocked it (no need to yet) and I've kept it in pretty good working order. The hassle of updating it's drivers and getting all of it's features to function is enough to prevent me from fiddling with it.
Pros: Overall, the card has performed well. I haven't had a need to overclock it. I've not noticed any problems playing every game on maximum settings even 3 years down the road.
Cons: After 2.75 years of use, one of the cooling fans has begun to make a LOUD whirring noise. The bearings are definitely going out. I've tried cleaning it out with canned air, but it obviously needs to be replaced. Additionally, I've had trouble with the drivers on and off. Catalyst Control Center d...
Summary: My brother has the exact card because he had also bought this in 2011 as well, and his works perfectly fine for him. Runs WoW, Diablo 3, BF3, and many Steam games smoothly, but eventually he will need to upgrade his HD 6950 to something better.
Pros: It's a good GPU, back in 2011 (This is a very old review I forgot to feedback.)
Cons: On the day I received this card it was already pixelated when building my first computer setup. I purchased this back in Summer 2011, and it had some problems on arrival. It didn't pass the benchmark test as I was putting stress on this card: orange and red colored pixels appeared randomly on my ...
Summary: This is my second Graphics card and my first one is HD 6950 2gb twin forzr III I have them now on crossfirex I am very happy with FPS and the quality is very high I recommend this card. It's fantastic
Cons: Driver issues abound. Latest driver 3/8/12 from AMD results in black screen after win 7 logo. 2 geeks and an IT guy from work can't fix it. Of course since I bought it 10/2011 it's way past RMA time. I've wasted too much of my life on trying to get this thing to work so we're off to the shooting ...
