Got a great card for a great price...
14 August 2013
Summary: Awesome buy considering the price of this card has gone up from about $375 when I bought my first one in 2011 to about $500 retail if you can find one now. All other HD6970s on eBay were going for $200-300 used. I was able to get this one brand new for $200. I wanted to snatch this up while they were still around so I could crossfire with my current card. I am very happy with this purchase!
Summary: This card gets very hot running with windows 7 but it comes with manual fan control witch helps but very loud other than that this is a great card have not tried in sli configuration but have read great reviews about its performance.
Summary: Pros: Very fast card. Overclocks well and is stable. Cons: Mine doesn't work with aftermarked coolers. Other Thoughts: Bought this for Skyrim, BF3, and FFXIV. It runs all on max settings without any problems. Wish I had a second one to crossfire with.
Summary: Sold.... 7970 came out.... Was a good install and performed well. Cooling was a limitation factor... Card temp ran close to the 55 deg on idle.... Recommend changing the stock cooler of you cross.
Summary: I purchased this video card on black Friday for three quarters of the regular price. The new Battlefield game, BF3 needed the extreme video processing power that only a card of this caliber could muster. As it turns out, it comes in handy for more than just gaming. I watch movies and TV shows on a big screen which also doubles as my computer monitor.
Summary: This was a pretty awesome buy. I ordered it used and they sent what appeared to be a brand new sealed card. The only problem was that I bought it just as the 7000 series came out :( but either way this card gets only about 5-20 fps lower so its still worth the money.
Summary: Card came very quick. very good support. easy to install. Tried to order this card from other places and they were not able to sell it due to restrictions, However this company was able and made sure it came quickly.
Summary: Pros: Easy install. No bug's found. Getting pretty good FPS in games. The AMD vision center is a pretty useful program. Easy to set up what you want your card to do. Lots of options to choose from. Manual fan control... I NEVER thought I'd use this but instead it's what I use most often. Cons: HowTF hot are GPU's supposed to get now-a-days?!?! Running graphic intensive games (Crysis or Bulletstorm) gets this card up to like 76c.
