Bought this instead of a VTX3D 6950, after having to RMA it. Surprisingly, this card seems to give me very similar results! This card feels like almost 90% of a 6950, only downside, is that it is 1Gb, so eyefinity is sort of good, but not great (very slight stutters in 4320x900, BF3 on auto)

All in all, for a card that is certainly ageing, it sure still packs a punch like the 6950 does now, and also, price:performance of a 6950 compared to this, if a 6950 was £200, this is currently £120, so if this gives out 90%, your paying a better price for the same thing!

Only downside of this card, is that it is quite loud, if you hate stock AMD processor fans, this really will make your computer take off!

Eyefinity, And the catalyst drivers are very easy to use, once I setup eyefinity, loaded up a game, and it was working without touching graphics settings!

Nice performance, bit noisy.

Works lovely, and the price is reasonable for a card of this level. However it really is quite a noisy card, I had to purchase a 3rd party fan kit for another thirty pounds to solve the noise issues.

I confirm this card is noisy!

I can confirm with that this card is very noisy under normal use and even more noisy under gaming.

I sent it back and purchased a Sapphire 6870 which is quiet and pleasant. You can watch a movie and can barely hear it.

Okay, so yes, this card did play Battlefiled Bad Company 2 with all video settings on Max, it was smooth and looked great. BUT..... Under load it is LOUD! The loudest graphics card I have ever owned. It sounded like a hair dryer of full blast! So loud infact that I could hear it through my headphones. After 1 hour of it being in my machine I requested an RMA from Dabs under the 7 day return policy, sent in back and bought the Sapphire HD6870 instead which my friend has and says has cannot hear it even under load over his case fans. So there you go. IMO, go for the Sapphire card, it's £10 more but well worth it.
