    I got a deal on this baby, so I though I would pass it on to you guys. This card has been extensively tested and works great. It comes factory overclocked and has a very good cooler that is nearly silent. The card at defaults runs between 65 and 79c in games like TRINE2 and Skyrim and nearly silent. It can max both games with ultra settings on my sytem. If you have played either they heat the hell out of your card. My old 6970 would hit in the high 80s and sound like a jet. This card has leds all over its backside and frankly is a very cool device. It is already overclocking by default to cards max potential. Anything past 900 truely shows zero performance gains in my system but the card will go a bit higher. The core will do 980 and the ram a lot higher, but their is no point. This card is a monster and quiet. The card has a fresh install of heat paste on the core and cosmetically is a 99 out of 100. You will get the card, the shown crossfire bridge, and cables. This card was near $500.00 a year ago and today's price shipped to the lower 48 is $169.99. Warning this is a very big card.
