Not every card is created equally. Anyone picking up an enthusiast card like this should know that. This XFX card is the only 7970 designed for certain systems. Is it better than others like Gigabyte, ASUS, Sapphire, etc.? Possibly, but as said, it depends on your system. Explained below.

Compared to the Sapphire Dual card:
- Heatsinks run parallel with the long length of the card. This makes the card ideal for cases with rotated boards like the Silverstone Fortress/Raven series as it lets the vertical air flow pass through the card easily.
- The XFX only takes up 2 slots whereas the Sapphire takes up 2.5.

Compared to the Gigabyte WindForce card:
- XFX heatsink runs parallel with the long length of the card. Gigabyte runs perpendicular. This makes the Gigabyte a poor choice for rotated systems.
- Both only take up 2 slots.

Compared to the ASUS DCU:
- To be honest, nothing is similar besides the card itself. ASUS is bigger (3 slots), cools better, and has perpendicular heat sinks. It's really designed for single card/spaced out 2 card systems.

Other:
- The PCB is a reference design so if you eventually choose to water cool it, nearly every waterblock vendor offers full cover 7970 blocks for a reference PCB. EK makes some nice ones.

Notes:
- If you are running a rotated board and plan on stacking cards, get this one.
- If you are running a rotated board and don't plan on stacking cards next to each other, get the Sapphire.
- If you are running a normal board and plan on stacking cards, get the Gigabyte.
- If you are running a normal board and don't plan on stacking cards next to each other, get the ASUS DCU.

Other:
- This thing has a really nice premium feel to it.

I installed this card into a Dell XPS 8300 with a upgraded Corsair 750TX power supply i7 2600 and 8gb RAM. I play mostly MMO's and FPS games. I get over 200fps in WoW with maxed settings and over 100fps in SWTOR maxed settings both on a 1080p monitor with 144hz refresh rate. This card kicks butt. BF3 I average 55-75 fps with max settings on the same monitor and Crysis 2 it is 66-77 fps at max settings with Direct X 11 patch enabled.

this is one of the fastest cards on the market atm. I can easily run Bf3 , Arma 2, Sc2 and, Crysis 3 on high settings with a solid fps of 60. Mine came well made, i didn't notice any coil whine or anything and it was running pretty quite even when i was gaming. You get a little funny door hanger that says "DND im gaming". The cool thing about it is it has your card serial and what not on the back so you don't have to check your card in order to register for warrant. XFX gives you life time warranty as long as you register within 30 days. A nice addon to have in case you run into any problems. You never know, you might get a defective product and its always good to get it replaced. Just make sure your cpu isn't bottle necking your computer.

I used a 6 pin connecter plus a 6+2 pin connecter as far the power supply goes. A 700 PSU can easily pull its weight for this card.

I left my computer on in a locked room using bitminter (GPU intensive program) with the central a/c on and i woke up to a jet engine, i was about 3 doors away and i could hear the sound of the fans spinning full rpm. I entered the room and it was about 90 degrees in there at least. i rushed over to the pc and checked it out and all was fine but i shut it off to prevent it from over heating more. the fans actually kept the card cool enough to have it running full speed. THIS is really good. As long as you got good ventilation in your case and room your fans will almost never spin fast and cause noise. I normally play with the a/c on and door open and i never hear my card while playing a game.

I got mine from Newgg, just wanted to review it here.

In short probably the best card i owned so far. It can easily beat most graphics card for the power to cost ratio. i would recommend this card to anyone. If you get a bad one like some people do, don't worry XFX got you covered.

I bought this to replace two amd HD6970s. It's much faster, and i can crank BF3 to full settings with nary an issue.

However, it has some pretty severe coil whine. I read up about the topic and a lot of videocards have this issue. The recommendation was to send it back if you wanted to, but chances were you'd just get another with whine back.

Coil whine is caused by electrical resonance on the little donut shaped rings with copper wire around them on the video card. Because the card performs at high frequencies, the copper and iron interact to make a squealing noise that is noticeable unless you're wearing headphones. It's unfortunate that this card has it, because other than the whine, it's completely silent.

The other issues are subjective but i've had tons of issues with my PC since installing it. I ended up doing a clean format onto an SSD and some of the problems have gone away, but the driver will still crash randomly during non 3d use (seriously?) and my computer seems to hang for a couple of seconds a couple of times an hour.

Specs of system so you know what i'm talking about when i say good framerates:
i7 2600K
16gb ddr3 2333Mhz
Fast SSD boot/game drives
This video card

Anyhow i enjoy games a lot more now that i have this card, so i do give it 4 stars for that. If the drivers were more stable i'd give it a 5, but that taints the review.

Thanks for reading!
