Nice card.

Pretti S., Newegg
6 March 2014
  • Summary: The card also paid for its own repair. Purchased 2 Vantec Tornadoes and proceeded to assemble the loudest video card cooler that i've ever seen/heard.
  • Pros: I purchased this at a good Price to performance ratio, for Scrypt mining. I expected maybe 420kHs, i unlocked shaders and put it outside where Nature could cool it, and it delivers a little over 500khs, stable. It has paid for itself, and the Powersupply, and still pays for its own electricity, a...
  • Cons: Fans are built of inferiority, and not easily stuck my finger in them, maybe accidentally stuck something else in proximity to fan. No Fan grill. Blade broke off, company had no replacement fan assemblies.(non replaceable fan)

Mining..

David B., Newegg
16 December 2013
  • Pros: This card stays cool even when I have the intensity of my litecoin miner at 18. The board will peak out just over 500Kh/s.
  • Cons: A little long, so I had to rearrange my case to accommodate it, no biggie, but necessary.

Excellent GPU

Ana B., Newegg
1 December 2013

Great GPU

Phillip S., Newegg
11 November 2013
  • Summary: If you can get this card in good condition used for around 100-125 dollars I would recommend this card all day. It is powerful and will still play all modern games. In the coming years it will not be able to max out settings at 1080p anymore, but the card still performs quite well.
  • Pros: Until the latest releases in 2013 this GPU has been able to give me solid frame rates over 30 with all games on Max settings at 1080p. I have this coupled with an fx 8350 in case your interested. This GPU can get a bit hot reaching temps over 70 Celsius after prolonged game play. You can keep the...
  • Cons: when I purchased this Graphics card new the price was worth it. With much better options at the 200$ range I could no longer recommend this GPU for the price in 2013. Look for almost anything other then this card at the 200 dollar price.

The Very Belated Review

Anonymous, Newegg
5 July 2012
  • Summary: The worst thing about this card is how it's deactivated on Newegg
  • Pros: After owning this card for 6 months, I can tell you that this is hands down the best card that I've owned. I upgraded from 2 dual GTX 285s in SLi Mode and I've never looked back. Everything runs stable at 40-60C under heavy load, and can get 55-60 FPS on Skyrim with over 70 mods installed with ov...
  • Cons: Pretty noisy, 60% fans are so loud in my case that my Kinect sensor in the same room cannot sync the mic properly, the PCB is fine, and copper heat pipes seem to be relatively stable, however the fan shroud had me worried for how easy it can flex (I'm used to full case cards), but has done an exc...

Impressive for a Single Card; A Bit Loud

Alex Hall, Amazon
19 June 2012
  • Summary: It's all about the graphics these days, it seems. There's a lot of good and a little bad on this card. Pros: - Runs just about everything on max settings (though the final chaotic scene of Crysis did stress it out a bit) - Using a computer in 1920x1080 resolution is awesome - I haven't noticed any...

Amazing card

CRAIG S., Newegg
28 February 2012
  • Summary: Unlocking shaders was simple, and this card has the BIOS switch everyone is looking for.
  • Pros: Runs every game on Ultra settings, and at high frame rates. It just laughs at everything you run with it. Even BF3 is no problem for this card if you group it with a decent CPU and good memory.
  • Cons: So powerful that my old power supply could not give it enough juice. Had to order a new 750w PSU for future crossfire considerations. Too bad it got deactivated on Newegg. Best HD 6950 Newegg has on its site.

Unlocks to 6970 with RBE

Robert R., Newegg
25 January 2012
  • Pros: Unlocks to 6970 shaders with RBE. Awesome price for the card, and it has the dual bios. Can't overclock much because the heatsinks are not as effective as they look. So I ended up undervolting it but keeping core stock, memory oc's to 1350 though. Be sure to set catalyst control center AMD overdr...
  • Cons: The fans on this unit are noisy and the cooler is a dumb idea as it vents inside the case, unlike my previous card, gtx260.
