  1. So I am bored and interested to see who already has lashed out for a 7970.

    I can only say "WOW". Needless to say it runs ANYTHING I have in my steam library including BF3. It OC's like a dream. I mean I am a layman, but running the card at 1125/1575 performance increases enormously. On 3D Mark 11 I get a whopping graphics score of P9298 3DMARK points. When OCing, the temps don't rise above 74C and the fan never goes above 39%. I mean what else could I ask for?

    Great buy, I am really happy I committed to this card. No regrets what so ever.

    On a side note though, I haven't seen the fan spin down actually yet. Don't know if I am just always missing that but I mean I don't really care if the fan is running or not. I have 9 other fans running in my case x)

    BF3 is unavailable on Steam isn't it? :chef:

    yes it's currently unavailable. doubt it will ever be. who knows. but the 7970 really has no issues with a standard 1920x1080p resolution. In the future I will probably upgrade to an eyefinity setup ^^

    would love this card if it cost in the $400 range instead of almost $600

    Im hoping by April when Ivy Bridge comes out the 7970's wil be slightly cheaper. So I can do complete upgrade. Would be sweet to have two of these bad boys.
