not bad!

Very good performance.running a little bit hot than previous series,so i would suggest a very good cooling and a full tower case.Destroys all games at 1900x1080.
It could run a little bit quieter in full load,but i've saw far worse,so the noise is decent...A must for gamers!

What can i say, getting over 60 FPS on Crysis 2 with no no noticable screen lag, glitches or anything! And its the same for every other game so far. A must have!

Doesnt Do eyefinity Without Active DP to

Not being a dedicated ATI user i bought this card for my brother as a birthday present. The card is advertised as being eyefinity capable, this being the main reason for the purchase. After installation i realised that the one of the 3 displays was not being detected. It turns out that in order to do eyefinity you cant just plug in the standard cables into each of the dvi ports and hdmi port. You must plug 2 displays into the dvi ports or 1 in the hdmi port and the final display must go into a DP port. In order to do this, you must!! have an ACTIVE not passive DP to dvi converter cable which normally would cost

Great Card!

If your not worried about your 3D mark 11 score (which a 570 will out do you on), this card is great. I can run every game completely maxed at 40+ FPS apart from Metro 2033. If you want to run metro, just buy two ^^.

Te fan is very loud at 50% but i can never get it to go that loud - unless i control it manually in the CCC. Worth the buy - Card is HUGE.

Not brilliant

Some good some bad.
The fan on this thing is EXTREMELY loud when above 50%. Performance isn't great, not the best choice at this price range.

Couldn't resist

For these to come out at

Amazing Value

I have come from 2 X 4870's in crossfire to this 1 X 6970 and i think it's a fantastic card.
BFBC2 is ultra smooth most of the time over 100fps :-) with no screen tearing what so ever.
Black ops looked better as well but saw better gains in BFBC2 also 3D Mark11 free version i got 4991.
for the money i find it hard to believe how someone would not find this a good buy.
my monitor is 1920 X 1200
A worthy purchase.

Best AMD card ever

I'm an AMD fanboy so it wouldn't be fair to compare against an Nvidia card.

I bought this card last week to replace my 3 years old 4870x2 which is already a fantastic card. As usual, fantastic service from Overclockers.

Well, what can I say. Crysis Warhead at 1920x1080 run above 60fps on gamer mode, sometimes hitting over 75fps. I have also played Aliens vs. Predator and the graphics are amazing but didn't notice the difference between tessellation on or off. Thought it was my card but searching on YouTube it seems that it's a problem of the game. What to test tessellation use Heaven Unigine.

I'm overall very satisfaction with this card...I believe it's slightly faster than GTX570 and slower than GTX580 but the price was the most important thing for me.

If in future I won
