Brilliant card - still good today!

Pros: Very fast frame rates, plays anything you throw at it

Cons: Expensive, hot and LOUD!

This was my first Dual GPU card I purchased. At the time, it was the fastest card on the planet and could play any game at ultra with stupid frame rates. It was awesome. I recently sold the card to upgrade to the newer HD6990. The 5970 is still a great card and is great if you want to xfire or tri-fire it. The main problems with it are; Noise: The card is extremely loud. When it is playing graphically intense games, it will definitely drown out the in game sounds without much problem. I would suggest a watercooling setup if you are going to overclock it. Power:Get ready for big power bills because this thing sucks more energy than a small city during christmas light...
