I've owned 7 Windforce 7950s and 7970s at this point. Gold standard? I don't think so, though they are pretty good. They are decent cards, the cooling is adequate now that they have added a VRM heatsink. They suffer horribly in muli-card configurations, tend to be noisy over 50% fan RPM, and any of them past 1.X revision are voltage locked so you have to flash the BIOS if you want to get after them for more than stock voltage can get you. That is a lot of compromises for a gold standard.
