DO IT, I've had my 7950 for maybe a week now and I'm already thinking about getting another one for crossfire, the 3 game deal + low price is appealing. I've got till 3 EST to make up my mind on whether to wait or get it today. The AMD never settle bundle offered atm at the bottom of the image says expires 10/14/13 11:59PDT maybe a hint at the launch date for the 9000 series. Anyone have 2 IceQs on the same board? I may have to go another brand dude to this massive cooler.

A guy I knows used a bar fixed to his case, to help hold the card in place. It sags otherwise, but I wouldn't be too worried.
You could try the accelero ones with a radiator and pump, or just save for proper wc eventually.

I'll look into it when I get the card itself lol right now I'm mining hopefully one day I'll have enough money to get two ref 7970's just thinking about them makes me drool lol

I ordered my HD 7950 last Friday and I am expecting it Friday. I have 3 new IPS panels coming in today, as well. What should I expect with the performance on Eyefinity? Is it good, bad, or should I just stick with single monitor gaming? Can't wait to get my upgrade and hope you are all enjoying your cards.

Hi Raghu i am from India and prices here are insanely high so a 300$ card can be bang for others but bane for me as it would be around 450$ here. redface.gif:o
Taking that in respect of prices i can fairly see 550-600$ for 9950 here , don't wanna spend that much in GPU to be honest as i am not hardcore gamer nor will i be ever but yes having a nice GPU that can play all current + next gen games. biggrin.gif
Market here is flooded with Sapphire cards like Vapor X/Dual OC/ Boost and Asus's offerings, His is available but not so widely hence sapphire or else GTX cards from Zotac/Gigabyte/MSI.
Just need a card that can play all my requirements and would upgrade it later with same card in CF or SLI setup.
Here is my current System Build thread as i am building whole new rig.

Just a question why is reference better than any non reference cards?doesn't nonrefrence cards have better cooling and power phases thus it should click higher?how is a reference card better than for example a sapphire vapor-x which is a beast?
I'm not talking about water blocks compatibility as I could care less about water cooling

Who said reference is better? ...they usually do dump their heat outside of the case which is nice, but otherwise, if you're not talking about WC'ing then I'm not sure where a reference card is better.

When doing crossfire, reference cards are better since they blow out heat outside your case. You don't want your case turned into an oven. If you look at threads carefully, a lot of people running crossfire have heat issues. Tsm106 told me about this and I have to agree with him.

Reference cards are not better. they are only better when you talking watercooling.
