Be careful which version you get.

Summary: There are two versions of this card: one with a metal back plate and a bios reset switch, and one without either. I accidentally bought the latter. It performs as well as my other card (a version 1), but I wish I knew which one I was getting. If this matters to you, be sure to check with the vendor.
Summary: For the price, I really expected a lot better. It had to be sent in to XFX twice for repairs, and eventually had to be replaced. Card gets EXTREMELY HOT. Very disappointed in build quality, especially from XFX.
Summary: Absolutely love this card! However, don't try running 2 in Xfire mode since they seem to lose performance. Both of my cards have been running strong for 2 years now and I love them. Can't beat Radeon though.
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.
