the reviews are terrible for this card loud , gets very very hot and as mentioned above the failure rate
Surely its better to go for the r9 280X.. Possibly better cooling? The XFX Radeon HD 7970 looks like a great looking design and would look great in my case, but from what I've been reading it has got quite a high failure rate.
4-6 Weeks to get it
above too cards phoned dabs today and they are taking orders for the cards and could not tell me when stock was due !!! I said any chance before xmas and the chap said no looking end of jan as they have back orders !!
