Well gents, if you want the biggest and baddest, this is it. The Radeon HD 7970. The worlds single fastest gpu. The 1st game I tried was Battlefield 3 on Ultra all setting go at 1920 x 1080. She put up a solid 65+ FPS With everything on. No lag input nothing, just solidly smooth beautiful scenery. But 65 that... ok.... SO then i started overclocking, and tweaking game setting. Lets just say after some testing im about a constant 90ish fps on ultra, and the worst i seen it dip down to is high 70s, but more than float over 100 fps. And I play in 64 man servers only.

Tested it with Skyrim, and other games. The card is just amazing, I mean no stutters, tearing etc. It is very very very quit. I was astounded by how quiet to be honest. And even after overclocking (which it has a LOT of room to do) its still more than fine.

The bads: Price. Yea it has Corvette speed, at a Corvette price. If wait a bit, AMD is sure to lower the stick when Nvid bring out their new cards. These just happen to be the big thing at the moment. SIZE. This Card is very very long. I had to do some case modding (with metal sheers) to make it accept this long bastard. Its about 6 inches longer than a 6870 if that helps. or watch some review on utube and when they handle the card you can see it and decide if your case can fit it.

Recommendations: Tried the card first on my old 75hz monitor. Looked great had no problems seemed great. Then got my 120hz monitor in, and the difference is amazing. Just a more fluid, smooth gaming experience. SO if your spending this kind of money on on this card you NEED a better monitor else you be stuck at 60fps because your monitor cant cycle past that. Get a good 120hz guys.

TLDR: Pricey, but really really great. Lots of overclocking room I run at 1000MHz GPU 1400MHz memory and still have room to play with. GET IT!

Amazing, Awesome, Fantastic are just some of the words I can honestly say about this card. I had an XFX Amd Radeon 6950HD 2GB card before I switched to my Asus Radeon 7970, and WOW......the 6950 was a great card, but this Radeon Asus 7970 is unbelievable. I'm playing The Elders Scrolls V - SkyRim, CoDWaW 3, Sniper,Ghost Warrior, and Virtua Tennis 3, all wide open at max settings and it looks almost like 3D.
This card was very pricey.....but I'm not sorry I spent the money, I have this big smile on my face when ever I turn my computer on, The graphics and colors are unreal. One more thing.....it runs cooler than my XFX Radeon 6950. About 45c compared to 57c.
No B.S.
Go for it man,
Josepi
