Summary: i love it my 7970 lightning, it literally destroy every actual game with all in max res. the only cons. it has no hdmi, but isn't really a big deal with the adaptor included or equal with the display port cable...
Summary: Be advised it does not support 120hz off of dvi(doesn't come with dual link dvi) You'll need a third party link to connect a 120hz monitor. Everything else works perfectly good. Pair it to a Samsung 27sa950d.

Summary: Got this to replace an MSI R6970 Lightning which has a Dual Link DVI capable of pushing 2560x1600. For some reason they only put 2 single link dvi connectors on the R7970 Lightning. In short, if your monitor is 2560x1600 and takes DVI you might not want this card.
