Summary: Over the years I have had several different video cards, this one beats them all, it is a pricey card but it comes with 3Gigs of onboard memory dedicated to the video application alone and the onboard features make for a smooth visual experience. Don't take my word for it, buy one and see for yourself. I am planning on buying a second card in the next few months.
Summary: This card is great. Very high powered. I thought it was a Ghz edition but was mistaken. (My fault). --Edit 5/3/2013: I have lowered the rating by one star because there seems to be a cable that is clipping the fan and it is created a really annoying sound. Also the card seems to get very hot very easily (most likely due to this cable that is clipping the fan/slowing it down). I dont want to take it apart to try to address the issue because it will Void the warranty.
Summary: I'm in no position to give a rating to this other than to say that it's not too noisy and I can run "Skyrim" at the "Ultra" settings. It's big, heavy, long, and requires a good power supply. But, of course, you know all that or you wouldn't be considering spending this much money on a video card!
Summary: I've had this card for several months now and at first I was very disappointed, but after much trial and error and many driver updates this card has turned out to be a great purchase. It drives my Eyefinity setup with ease in most games and that's all I can really ask for.
Summary: I am rating this low not because of the performance of the card but because the Active Mini Display Port to DVI adapter was missing. This is the most expensive adapter that was supposed to be included.
Summary: im not gonna give a huge long technical analysis of this card, but it works great! i hadn't heard of visiontek before and was a little leery of trying a new brand, but it was the least expensive 7970 available. Fortunately my money wasn't wasted, it works spectacularly. i am running a 3 monitor setup with this one card flawlessly. only loss fps rate when running games on all screens, but even that didn't effect the performance by much.
