    I'm warning everyone in this thread to play nice or I'll start handing out infractions. On a side note I think this is a fantastic card at a great price. :toast: If I was in need of a new card and could afford it I would buy this card. Oh and once the new cards came in, I would upgrade. That's what enthusiasts do. This is like fighting about the weather.. There's nothing you can do about it.

    I for one think it's great company's push there tech. :toast:

    $1600 beans :eek: I think I need another hobbie!

    Never in this life time would I drop that kinda cash on a gpu!

    Nice gpu though but imo not worth the cash.

    Thanx for the review W1zz :respect:

    I like Am*, he/she makes me smile. So much anger, so much time wasted.

    The Ares/Mars cards have always been for show. You can clearly get their philosophy right in the way they pack them, heck, they even come numbered.

    It's a collector's item not a practical solution. Let the collectors have them and go on.

    agreed, but they also last longer than regular market gpu's... Because of their performances.

    This is basically like buying a New C6 Z06 or C6-R Corvette vs buying a C4 Corvette that has to be tuned

    Pricing is not the point of this card. I'll buy this card if I can and bragging around the forum just to piss the angry "enthusiasts". :nutkick:

    Wow!

    But I'm more surprised seeing Diablo III for benchmarking... :D
    Techpowerup should've chosen a much more demanding game (even though old) like World in Conflict. ;)

    Only thing which put me off buying a reference HD7970 for dirt cheap was the noises.

    Chokes faintly screaming away similar annoyance to a mosquito then getting into the game the cooler starts sssssSSSSSHHHHHH.......
    Either requiring a headset or having the speaker turned up loud.

    Took it out and installed my HD7870 Direct CU ii again.
