Default 7970

Ok so... I know theres a few blokes with these cards. I want to know how they are running and if they are having too much issue with them at all? Are they kicking bf3 ass or not? Inquiring minds want to know.

Mine is running like a dream!!! A massive leap from the 6870 Xfire setup I had before. The only think thats bugging me now is that it seems like the drivers wont let me output audio through the hdmi port on the back. Either that or with the new card I cant figure out how I had it configured before and now I cant get it to work.

Now the only debate is whether or not to buy a watercooling block for it.

Ya, kicking BF3's butt for me with no issues.
Issues with other games, but nothing I play yet, more like just testing.
The card is super fast, you won't be disappointed.

Good to know. I like the fact that AMD can still compete with the vid cards.

They've been competing since last gen though, just at a lower price point and minor performance loss compared to the geforce500s

With that said though, it seems like nvidia is trying to push out something in Feb. to battle the 7970 :o
