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: 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: 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.
