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 !!
Code still working, ordered yesterday. Thanks for sharing
I don't need the rest of the pc though, only the graphics card X)
MFC - nice computer :) Sure motherboard would work with the card. As mentioned, need a decent PSU - something around 500W+ and some spare connectors would be ideal. montblanc - This isn't much for a good graphics card, seeing as most PCs it would go would have cost £400+. Think of it like £470 vs £530 with 25% speed increase...
Twice the price of a 5830 with 25% speed increase, I'm not sure yet.

ok, they sold one since friday - wow!(_;) ebuyer deal looks better anyway - at least their cs is good!
When i got mailed there where 45, 35 by the time i posted, 21 today, I have not got a clue about the card, all three of my machines are running AGP, max'd out the boards today, will have to upgrade, everything except PSU's next. :(
22 instock on friday, 22 instock today. Speaks for itself?
No there not infact they are not even close, its closer to the 5850. Ive had loads of XFX cards and never had 1 fail i still have a7950 in my kids tower. Ive contacted customer service and found them to be great. I wanted to put a custom cooler on and they said that i could and it wouldnt effect the warranty they even mailed me weeks later to see how i had got on and did i need any more help.
why do these have strange fans? i know their sold our but thinking of getting the 1GB version for under £75. i know XFX do the both versions with the nice fan and cooler like i had on my 4830.
you wont find a better gfx card for £60 even if it's not exactly new ... comes with a 1 year warranty. Sold out fast!
Wow.that sure was quick..from 10 to 0 stock in few hours.they should put more stock lol..I would've bought 2..but already satistied with my dual 4770 atm.
xfx shop items are seond hand "XFX Shop offers you the opportunity to buy pre-owned/tested and warranted XFX cards/boards and new XFX gear direct from the manufacturer. All cards are fully tested using extensive burn-in techniques and carry a full 1-year warranty" so £250 for a second hand card with warranty is fairly reasonable i think.
0 in stock.
