great price minor problem

Summary: was in good condition visually but it seems one fan only works sometimes and i researched this to see if it was a power saving feature where the 2nd fan kicks in once it gets hot and all answers point to NO.
Summary: Pros: Great framerates for what was a good price. Very quiet Good cooling Cons: Mine is broken Can't find another one at a reasonable price to set up crossfire This is a complicated review to write. I have had my 7950 for about 6 months and been very happy with its performance.
Summary: I bought this card in a combo with a R7 240 ($350 for the combo) so that I could scrypt mine on it. Expect to get 650 Kh/s max on the 7950 but only after you mod the cooler and around 85-87 Kh/s max on the R7 240.
OpenGL version 2.1 under Mavericks (correction 4.1)

Summary: Other than failing to provide access to any of the promised OpenGL 4.x functionality, this card seems to be working fine in my 2009 Mac Pro (4,1). I'm sure the fault for not supporting this card properly under Mavericks lies entirely with Apple - but if the vendor knows that it isn't possible to use...
decent card but is way overpriced on some websites.

Summary: This card has a few minor issues but runs fast and smooth and is a good gpu, but if you look at the price it is around 500$ (at least right now) but if you look at newegg.com for the card its 220$!
Summary: I purchased this product because it was one of the few video card options I had to upgrade my Mac Pro (mid-2012). The card is a little expensive for what it is, but when you need something Mac compatible you pay the price.
Summary: Always research computer hardware before you buy. This GPU is almost perfect for my current setup. I plan to run tri-SLI (not crossfire) in the future when I add two more 1920x1200 monitors since I also run Arch Linux on a separate SSD. Nvidia's drivers are generally better for Linux distros.
Summary: Great card, works for my purpose but has a few things you should be aware of... First, it takes TWO PCIe power cables, meaning if you are like me and have more than a couple monitors (I have 4) then you will have to get a 6 pin PCIe power splitter to make more than one card work.
