How is card?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202008&cm_sp=DailyDeal-_-14-202-008-_-Product

I'm thinking of picking one up. But if everyone says it's good I might go ahead and get two.

Thanks ahead of time.

Yes, they are good. Just take in mind that these use a little more than 2 slots of space.

That's ok right now I have a gigabyte 6870 and it does the same thing. One other question, is there a full cover cooler for these?

No, these are non-reference.

To be honest I'm not all that happy with mine. The price was 379.99 and there was a 20 dollar rebate which i didn't use but i signed up for a new egg credit card so i got 50 bucks off and sold my two 460's so the price i paid was pretty cheap over all. With that being said..... I had a ton of issues with ym desktop crashing when exiting sleep mode, my screen would also randomly turn black and then my pc would die ( i think a driver fixed that not sure though could have been related to sleep mode) and then to top it off it isn't a very good overclocker at all sadly frown.gif

now while it does blow away my 460 sli set up I still dont feel like this is the performance i should be getting out of this card at 1440p and i'm pretty sure my psu couldn't handle another 7970 down the road so I'm kind of upset that i invested in a flagship card with a premium price tag when i could have crossfired from the previous gen for cheaper or even waited a little bit for the 8970s if i really wanted flagship.


Now I really cant compare the sapphires to any other 7970s just in my expirence with the card I didn't think it was worth the money. but maybe thats just my buyers remorse. If you buy it i'm sure you'll love it!
