I did a lot of obsessive research before I built my PC, and the graphics card was one of the most important choices. I went back and forth between the AMD 7950, 7970, and nVidia 670 cards. I play all kinds of games and wanted as much horsepower as I could afford in my PC budget. Normally that would have probably left me with the 7950 (not bad at all), but luckily I bought my components on/around Black Friday and got a good bit more bang for my buck.

That meant it was between the 7970 and nVidia 670. I honestly don't care about the nVidia vs. AMD crap; I've owned and been pleased with cards from both companies in the past. I ended up going with with 7970 because just about every benchmarking site I could find ranked it a little higher than the 670 for a little less money. It also comes with 3gb vram versus 2gb, which has already been surpassed by my heavily modded and retextured Skyrim install (2.4gb used is the highest I've seen so far).

Right after I made the purchase all the frame latency hysteria began, and I was admittedly concerned (google it if you don't know what I'm talking about, and want to be completely informed before you buy a new AMD gpu). I was still within the 30 day exchange period, so I reassessed whether I should trade the card in for a 670. Coming from someone who plays a lot of FPS at a high level, I really couldn't detect much if any of the stutter that was being reported. It was a case of "Maybe I feel it, or am I just trying to feel it?" Kind of thing. I'm extremely sensitive to input lag and never play with Vsync on, so I would have thought it'd be noticeable to me, but it just wasn't and had little to no impact on my gaming.

Runs hotter then their earlier reference design. Even with water cooling running about 10c hotter then my other one. I have managed to keep it running at 1200 on core for days at a time mining bitcoins but it will get pretty toasty and it dumps all that heat into the case. For anyone wanting to attach a koolance water block there is no issue with this card.

The only issue I had was coming from an Nvidia card. Required a lot of uninstalling drivers and things I really didn't feel like having to deal with. I use the card for gaming, and it... does... justice. This bad boy has no problem running any game I have at maximum settings. It's the real deal.

Try to make sure your computers main case is at least a full size. He's a big boy. This thing'll have a tough time fitting in a mid sized tower. Trust me, I got it to fit, but it was crowded, and air circulation wasn't all that great because of it.

While it doesn't have the PhysX that Nvidia cards have, how much of a deal breaker is that for you? It really shouldn't be. This is a true gaming pc's graphics card. That little, extra, honestly unneeded flair is nothing to fret over.

So i bought this card from newegg for about $480. Looks great, the dual fans are an awesome upgrade from the single leaf blower fan. Heres the catch a few years ago AMD suffered what was referred to as the grey screen of death (GSOD). It was determined to be a driver problem ever since I have installed this card it freezes requiring a hard reboot at least 5 times a day. No notices or anything showing a problem just freezes with lines going down the screen and a sound loop. I have done all the suggestions, clean reinstall of drivers, memory test, all drivers and firmware on my pc are current (this happens when the card is at stock clocks OC'ing makes it even worse). XFX have agreed to an RMA but if you google 7970 GSOD you will see tonnes of ppl are having the same issue, a lucky few have got a good card and have no problems. So hopefully once i get mine or a new one the problem will go away and I'll be a happy camper. Hopefully if you by this card you will get a good one...chances though it seems are slim.

Got this as a gift and thought I would have to return it. Response to my return request was immediate and friendly. I was asked if I needed any additional help with the product or I could return it for a full refund. Turns out it works great and was told it's an awesome graphics card. Was very happy with response from seller but much happier that the gift was a success!

This is a very nice card, with apropiate ventilation on the case you will avoid the heating of the VRMs that the cooler produces on this particular model. That aside, i have not overclocked it (What is the need for it @1080p) and it chews through everything i throw at it. I received the original model that is reference too, but noticed the lack of the BIOS switch.

A lot of people acuses XFX of bad costumer services, but they really treat their costumers in the best way posible, the original card was misbehaving, it would shut down in a few secs after boot, it was using masive amounts of energy just to boot and it quickly rised so the Corsair 750W just gave up and shut itself to avoid damage, i contacted XFX and they offered to RMA it, since i am on Central America i thought it would be impossible to get it, but they said they ship internationally and they honored the warranty (along with my old XFX HD5850 which died while playing, which is still on warranty thanks to their now defunct Double Lifetime Warranty).

That said, if warranty on AMD video cards is important to you, XFX is the way to go!
