    What happened to this card? I know it's a factory overclocked version of the 7950, but why was it removed from the site, did XFX just stop supplying it.. as has happened with nearly all of their "XXX" editions???? :rolleyes:

    Probally removed from stock as most of the people that buy from OcUK are intelligent enough to realise that you can just buy the standard one and overclock it. The card probally wasn't selling too well so they stopped selling it.

    Either that or they done a 7900gtx xxx trick and only had a handful of cards that would clock that high.

    Factory overclocked 7900 cards have the worst failure rate for pretty much any card in the last couple of years, I would think that's why. They should start appearing again when the Samsung memory on them is replaced with Infineon chips.
