Nice card...I have a Sapphire 6970 2GB I bought used a little over a year ago and that runs great. I really like the duel fans on yours, Sapphire does a good job with their cooling solutions. Only problem I have with mine is because it's a reference card, even though it has very good temps at idle and load, the fan is so loud. Anything above 40% fan speed it sounds like a leaf blower..
Hope yours stays quiet and cool...good luck with the new card.
