Summary: This thing is a BEAST!!!! My graphic scores are a 7.9 out of 7.9 on graphics and gaming graphics. its runs cool. I did not realize how big this thing is!!!!! Literally its bigger than the mobo... but it runs great. Game lag?? Umm.. nope! If i run some hardcore game it runs smooth.. If i do something crazy (like in garrys mod) the program will crash and this card wont even be stressed yet.
Summary: This is a great card that is still relevant even now in the day's of the R9 290/290X and the GTX 780Ti, though the 290/290X can be quite difficult to find, especially at MSRP prices. Still play's all the newer games, though maybe not at the highest settings on monitor's with very high resolutions. Quite a step up from the HD 5850 I had been using for the past several years.
not sure what is going on but the card worked for about 4 months

Summary: I loved it while it worked but my motherboard went out and have a new motherboard now my video card won't install drivers or catalyst controller? It works without the drivers but won't play my games for now I am using my integrated graphics with no issues. But whenever I attempt to install the video card drivers from the disc or downloaded ones I get a black or blank screen left it running just in case it was installing but 45 minutes later screen remains black.
Summary: Great video card. Super easy to configure. If you're going to run three monitors only two of them can be legacy without using a "DisplayPort Adaptor" to convert one of them to one of the two display ports. Legacy monitors = DVI, HDMI or VGA. I'm running 3 monitors, 2 X VGA and 1 X HDMI. I used a ~$25 DisplayPort to VGA Adaptor on one of the VGA monitors and it all works great.
Using the XFX Radeon HD 7970 for Lite Coin Mining at 736KH/s

Summary: This card runs reliably at 736KH/s using: -I 13 -g 2 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 8192 --gpu-engine 1050 --gpu-memclock 1680 at 82º C without crashing. These cards stack up against each other only taking two slots compared to the ASUS 7970 that takes three slots. So you can pack up to four on a motherboard and get close to 3MH/s from one computer.
Summary: One major thing I didn't like is the fact that the CD that came with the card didn't have the drivers on it. I still want a CD for the video card I bought. I inserted the CD and it take you to the Damn Internet, without the software I call this an incomplete package. It was advertized with a CD, and when I purchase a device I expect to see the drivers on a CD, not a link to the internet.
Summary: I have to say that this video card will run with any video out there with a lot of system requeriements resources. I use it for Battlefield 4 and it runs smoothly, does not lag at max settings at all and Im very comfortable with the product. indeed, anyone looking for a decent video card and not like a crazy gamers out there, this is the video card for you.
Summary: I am running 2 of these cards in crossfirex now and its great and the shipping was really fast, well i payed the fast shipping but the box and everything its fine and i am really happy with this cards ( i bought both cards here at the same time ).
