WOW. right out of the box.. i bumped up the voltage all the way up to the 7970 spec.. and right away i was doing 1050 Core and 1450 Mem (stock 7950 does 800/1250), thats' a whopping 31% faster without any effort. i gotta say.... i feel spoiled running BF3 in Ultra with 4XAA in 2550X1440 res (average 45fps). only caveat... the reference cooler does a terrible job at cooping with the overclock. at stock speed, it does alright around 65c in BF3, but at 1050/1450, it jumps up to low 80's. the good news is... the VRM stays relatively cool, even at overclocked speed... in BF3 it only hovers around 85c. which is pretty amazing consider there's no heatsink what so ever covering the Vram, or the VRM chips. one warning tho... if you run this reference card overclocked in Furmark... you can see up to upper 90c for core and up to 100c on the VRM. i plan on upgrading the cooler to the Zalman VF3000 when they release a compatible heatink for the 7900 series.. i really can't wait.

the fan noise can be loud, but i like the sound of a jet plane, makes my rig sound like a beast. i use headphones to game.. so doesn't matter. be sure to setup custom fan profile if you do overclock it. and watch out for the VRM temp as you overclock.... those things tend to be overlooked by most people, but they can fry your card if they get too hot. definitely should invest in an after market cooler when more options become available. i am glad i returned my P O S D i a m o n d 6950 and waited a couple weeks for this awesome 7950. :D

I was very eager to get this card, and when it got to my house today I couldn't wait to tear into the box. I upgraded from a XFX Radeon HD 5770. I completely uninstalled my catalyst control center, and everything associated with it. Then, I installed a fresh install of catalyst control center. I have not overclocked this card at all. The first thing I noticed, my 5770 ran about 35c idle, and ran to about 45c while playing games. This card, however, idles around 37-40c, and during a game gets to around 47c. The card stays quiet, which gave it one star.

I decided to test this on a few games. The first game I tried was Grand Theft Auto IV. There were immediate problems. The game kept saying I was close to exceeding the memory usage of the video card, even though I was NOWHERE close to it at all (282MB out of 3096MB). Also, the game would not let me change from a 800x600 resolution because it thought that I was exceeding the memory usage. I found a way past this little problem with some google help. Once I changed the resolution, the game stopped saying I was close to exceeding the memory usage. I maxed everything out, and began playing. I noticed NO DIFFERENCE from my 5770. Not one single difference. Then the game became night time, and there were flickering shadows all over the place in the game, something that didn't happen at all with my 5770. This isn't looking good so far and making me severely regret my purchase.

The second game I tested was Skyrim. Again, my 5770 ran this game just fine. I instantly wanted to completely max out the settings in this game, and upon doing so, the game was SO INCREDIBLY STUTTERY. I must've been getting like 5FPS. It was severely unplayable on absolute max settings.

This card works like a champ. I've had this card for about 6 months now and still no issues. The screen not fitting my monitor at first during the initial setup but I found the settings in the software that is included. Full 1080p baby!

This card delivers incredible performance! I just upgraded from an Nvidia Geforce GTX 570 in my sub-$1000 gaming rig build (pushed up to $1100 by this upgrade) and am totally satisfied. This card is killer, outperforms the GTX 570 by about 10fps on max settings 1920x1080 in Battlefield 3 and benchmark articles show it outperforming the GTX 580 by 15-20% in most games (at about the same price!). Also supposedly draws much less power than the previous gen of top-tier cards so you should save on electricity bills vs a gtx 580 or radeon 6900 series. Given the way AMD and Nvidia have been staggering their releases, these top-tier card prices don't move much over time. Notice how a 1+ year old Nvidia GTX 580 still sells for almost 85% of its debut price. No-brainer to get the best card you can afford because you can sell it a year later and get the latest greatest without spending much more.
