Thinking of getting a 7970. Just wanted to find out some things about driver stability.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of going with the Sapphire 7970 3GB OC but my only concern is all the driver stability issues I keep hearing about. Especially with cards failing after a couple of months of usage.

Many people are giving advice regarding the purchase of the 7970s but very few seem to come from someone who has owned them for a decent amount of time.

So i guess i just wanna hear from you guys like... how are your AMD cards holding up, stability wise? It's literally the only thing holding me back from the buy.

Thoes driver issues you are hearing about are basically from a few years back when AMD drivers where crap..... but people just love to keep bringing it up to lure them to a side.

I have my current card for over a year now and have had 0 driver issues.
This round AMD is the card to get thumb.gif

Hope this helps.
