A beast of a card.

Pros: Quiet, Runs cool, Overclocks extremly well.

Cons: None

I bought this card from Amazon in October, when I say bought I mean I felt as if I stole it cause I paid $215 for it. The card right out of the box is amazing, the temperatures never exceed 68c and that is in a hot room in the caribbean (ambient of maybe 34c). The HIS iTurbo software is simple and easy to use. My frames never dip below 35fps but I am bottlenecking the card by about 10fps because a buddy of mine has a 7950 running with a 8120 and he typically gets 10frames up on me in the same games, again no fault of the card just my cpu. Overclocking is easy as walking, with no voltage increase I get 1200mhz on the core and 1600mhz memory (if I am remembering correctly) I hardly ever OC...

Pros: Great cooler

Cons: Boost clock?

I actually replaced a HIS 7850 with this 7950, wanting a wee bit more future-profing out of it. Both cards perform very well, the reference-ish blower cooler is excellent, removing GPU heat from the case rather than swirling it around which is nuts in my opinion. It does 1050 core and 1575 mem fine, temps are low with a slight pump in fan speed curve using AfterBurner. No complaints at all. I'm not sure this turbo business is helping any but so far I'm not aware of it hindering. I see no reason to buy an ATI video card that does not have a cooler setup like this right now, and I expect to get a couple of years out of this one.
