This card is good but the price is not imo. $359 is too expensive when GTX670/HD7950 are $399. $299 is more reasonable for HD7870.

You can easily find Sapphire HD7950 for $399 and it has overclocking headroom to 1200mhz. NV's 670 is no slouch either as a GTX670 OC from the factory = GTX680.

Even a stock GTX670 is 25-30% faster than a 7870 out of the box:

No one is going to spend $360 to overclock a GPU when a $400 GPU gives 25-30% faster performance straight of the box.

Because of that I am sure how you guys managed to give this GPU a gold award because 7950 and GTX670 available for just $40 more and will slaughter this card. It may be a good card among 7870s but in its price range, it's overpriced.

The reviewer has a certain OCD fan issue, and can't help himself.

Whatever - it's amazing - downclock the 7950 then add in $170 cheaper card from nVidia. ROFL

I thought I had seen it all, but that takes cake to a new level I hope they can consummate on the wedding night.
