Summary: This card is really nice! I've been rock'n a radeon 6870 since 2011 its time to use some real power! my system specs are fx 8320 @ 3.5ghz, 8gb Kingston hyperx ram, 120gb Kingston hyperx ssd Kentek 800wattpsu
Summary: Its a 7970 so I got what I wanted/expected out of the performance, but I've never seen a card get this hot and this loud. The cooling is absolutely awful. The metal frame around the fans gets too hot to touch. The card runs a consistent 85C with load despite a case with many fans and a consistent temp room.
Summary: Could not be happier with this card. My previous card was an HD 6950. After installing this beast into my system, the difference was like night and day. Getting a stable 60 fps in every single game i've thrown at it so far (Max settings). The best part is once you buy a card like this, you won't even need to think about upgrading again for YEARS. You will be set for a long time.
Summary: I run two of these exact model cards in crossfire in my setup which consist of a 4770k i7 Haswell CPU, sabertooth z87 motherboard, and of course these two MSI hd 7970's. Having tested crossfire with both cards using application profiles and beta drivers I can say that crossfire works without any trouble. It recognized both cards after starting up and offered to enable crossfire and I have yet to experience any oddities that are sometimes blamed on the paring of cards.
Summary: I've had quite a few video cards in my days, but ive had very little experience with AMD cards. This card has beatin out some of my scores i had with my EVGA 680 OC. Its VERY quite, and so far its done nothing but kick the crap out of the games i have thrown at it. BF4 beta gets about 70-80 FPS with max detail. I know some worry about price, but since the soon release of the new R9 series, the 7000 cards are going to start falling, if they haven't already.
Summary: This video card was a great choice. Very powerful and so far, very stable at high usage for long periods of time. I reapplied TIM just to try to get the temps down even further. This, along with undervolting helped quite a bit.
Summary: This card is a significant upgrade from my 5850, and makes Skyrim look and feel smooth. I wanted a card that will last several years and play the latest games, this should fit the bill for probably 3 or 4 years before games start to become significantly more demanding. It is also one of the few high-end cards that fit in an Antec 300, a popular case.
Summary: Awesome MSI product, nice cooler design and the card feels solid. Installation was easy, no problems at first start up or with the drivers. I've been running it a couple weeks now, temps are good and fps is great.
