  • Summary: I love this card. It's run everything I've thrown at it at max settings. The only downside is that it barely fit in my case.

Fast, cool, low power.

  • Summary: This card was easy to install in my Lian-Li standard ATX case. It requires 2 6-pin PCI-E power connectors from the power supply, so make sure those are available. The card runs much cooler than my previous Nvidia 9800GTX+. The fans rarely spin up past 50%, so it stays quiet. According to other product reviews, this card also has very low power consumption, dropping down to less than 10 watts at idle. It runs games just fine.

Amazing Card, when it worked.

  • Summary: I bought this card as an upgrade to my Sapphire HD5750. This card is well built, not flashy and very powerful! It installed fairly easily, although I had to move my hard drives to a different slot in my case as this card spans the entire inside of my Antec 900 case. The performance is amazing. Battlefield 3 runs at 80+ fps on Ultra @ 1280x1024. On high/ultra hybrid I was getting 120+ fps. Last night I noticed some choppiness while playing.

Only one bad thing...

  • Summary: I love this card! Runs almost all my games on ultra settings, including Battlefield 3! The one bad thing was when I originally got the card it was very loud (defected). I know amd cards can be a bit loud, especially running high end games, but this noise was ridiculous. I sent it back to amazon.com, and they sent me a new one free of charge in TWO DAYS! The new one works great! The card runs really cool too, compared to my friends nvidia cards, which are gtx 560ti.

Nice cooler, great performance - wish it could overclock more

  • Summary: A fantastic video card, I'm getting great performance out of it. I have two together in Cross-Fire. Only thing I'll say is that it was annoying Amazon would not let me buy two - I ended up buying the second one for my CrossFire setup from NewEgg, which was unfortunate for Amazon and for me having to work with multiple sources and shipping costs.

Sapphire DIRT 3 EDITION Radeon HD 6950 2 GB review

Migs, Amazon
3 September 2011
  • Summary: I got this card a few weeks ago via UPS, it turned up faster than I expected. The video card is very good and that's why I got it imported to New Zealand, I saved about $200 by getting it from amazon.com. The only problem I sometimes have with the card is that when I put my 50 inch TV via hdmi to the computer the computer screen sometimes flickers a little, sort of like the refresh rate isn't high enough.
