Summary: THe Rebate process bytes. Just give drop the price and reduce everyones stress for crying out loud. First, thier site sent me in an endless loop. After clearing cache and rebooting, I was able to move to next rebate page.
Pros: Card and packaging look amazing! Seems to play all I throw at it with Max settings
Cons: Some artifacts and image distortion appear in a few games. REBATE PROCESS BYTES
Summary: Currently have it paired with a Diamond HD6950 in Crossfire running eyefinity with 3 NEC EX231W monitors. The two cards still struggle a bit in BF3 on high (range between 30 and 40 FPS)
Pros: Decent priced 6950. Runs BF3 at 1080p well enough.
Cons: When I was running 3D mark it would regularly crash on the 3rd or 4th test (with no overclocking of any kind). I haven't had this happen in any games though (yet anyway) The fan is almost quiet enough for me when idling, but when gaming it is just as loud and only 2C cooler than my single fan Dia...
Pros: Great overclocker, good cooling.Stable as all get out! Good price point.
Cons: Flimsy PCB (handle with care!), disappointed in the graphic quality even at full antialiasing. The last ATI card I bought was ten years ago. Nine years ago I switched to Nvidia, I may just have to go back again! I thought AMD might straighten their drivers out.
