Too Bad for Amazon

Summary: I received this WITHOUT the Never Settle: Reloaded bundled that is depicted in the thumbnail. Now I have to return it/eat restocking and order from Newegg to get the bundle. A bunch of hassle for no reason, I called and talked to customer service to no effect. I'm really disappointed with customer service here and it is a sad way to treat a 10 year customer. Do your self a favor and go to NCIX or Newegg where they will honor the promotions.
Summary: I received the card and threw it in but it wouldn't work right after a ton of driver tweaking with a shoddy HDMI output from the card I threw in the towel. Audio passed through the HDMI was degraded and dropped out consistently. I returned it and got a Nvidia card, but I prefer Nvidia I'm sure a proper card from with no defects would be fine.
Summary: I've been through two of these cards now, and both have the same problem.I have been in contact with Sapphire who suggest Apple and AMD MIGHT sort it out with the next OS update. Frankly, it's not good enough,it's been months since release and it's still not working, thus I recommend you not buying one unless you absolutely must. Having googled a bit, this appears to be a pervasive problem.
Good performance great value for money, awfully loud

Summary: I was trying to build something that doesn't sound like a chopper taking off during game sessions. I got this card because of the advertised Vapor-X system and the proven power and excellent value for money that you get from an 7950. But and this was a deal-breaking but for me, this thing is loud, so loud that I can't stand it anymore and i am considering returning it for something like an 770.
Doesnt provide performance associated with GPU's of its price range

Summary: Brought this card going on the reviews of many websites, however, when comparing to a GTX 670, it is often inferior. I would strongly recommend instead of buying this, that you consider a NVidia card, as I believe that they offer better drivers, support and compatibility with future games, and of course, offer the glorious visuals of Physx, which in supported games, looks truly stunning
Summary: Carte HS au bout d'un mois, je l'ai échangée contre une GTX 670 en espérant qu'elle tiendra plus longtemps. C'est ma première carte Sapphire mais la qualité n'est apparemment pas au rendez-vous, même si le bundle est assez attractif.
