Summary: I love my 6950 because of the performance and the small cost that I paid for it. I have unlocked it to a 6970 which is another plus of this card. It runs battlefield on High with ultra textures and ultra terrain, I get around 50 too 70 fps. I would recommend this card to anyone if your looking for a card around 300 dollars!
Pros: A great card, bang for buck
Cons: Stock Cooler fans have barrings that last for 4 months, then start to make rattling noise, can be fixed with a aftermarket cooler though., The occasional Blue screen if you have it clocked too high.
Summary: I got this card to upgrade from my 260GTX BE, and the performance bump is nice. Awesome framerates while playing on ultra settings, with quiet operation and low temps. If people think this is a loud card, they maybe got a lemon or something, this card is really quiet(even with two fans!) under load. Be prepared, however, to be a little skeptical of the construction.
Pros: Runs quiet, Great performance, Ability to flash to 6970, Two cooling fans, Clock speeds
Summary: Got this card about 2 weeks ago from NCIX to replace my 4870Toxic Spahire eddition , i mainly play WOT and my FPS did increase from 40avg to 50-55 on Full out Resolution and settings, ( which wasnt a huge increase from my 4870 1gb ) ....but after running GPU-FUMark it did bench if i would Trifire 4870's i kept getting same results around 4500+Points score , i havent tried any dx11 games yet but i m awaiting Diablo3 without any doubts , also this card performs at COOOL...
Pros: Great Value for 250$, Card never goes over 70degrees and Fans are dead silent
Summary: Purchased to replace dual 5750s in Crossfire - much cooler solution running about 38C idle with a 21C ambient temp. Can't comment on the other reviewers, but my particular example runs fairly quiet. Dual fans idle at 20% and haven't gone past 60% while gaming in Starcraft II, Dungeon Seige III or Dragon Age II.
Summary: bought this for a relative to replace a 4870 for battlefield 3 powerful and silent apparently you can mod it to 6970, haven't tried it though the card is powerful enough as is nice dual fan cooler
Pros: powerfull, suppose to be moddable to 6970, silent
Summary: I have been holding on to my 4850 X2 for a few years now thinking my gaming couldn't get better. after buying this card and playing all my games at max setting without a hick up i am very impressed. oh the 4850 X2 would play on high settings but not maxed out this card does easily.
Pros: Awesome card plays my games at ultra high settings on all.
Cons: have yet to find a weakness ...but will post if i find one..lol
Summary: I love it when things look strong and sturdy. That being said, the fans on this card kind of look weak. However, the card performs wonderfully and will allow many games to be played on the highest resolution. I upgraded over the 5770 so of course I am amazed.
Pros: Great card, Good price, Dual fans to help cool it
