Hello there :hello:  (Happy Thanksgiving Tomorrow :)  )

I was wondering, is this card a decent 6950 2GB? I've seen a couple of benchmarks & reviews for this card and they're all good results. But I want someone who has this card themselves and give me your opinion towards this card.

I'll most probably get it from Newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My specs are:
AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE OC'd to 3.8 GHz
G.Skill DDR3 1600MHz 2GB (x2)
Windows 7 (64bit)
Asus M597 Evo
700w Silent Pro M

I dont have one. but its definitely good. and SAPPHIRE is a good brand too.
Also I heard that 2GBs VS. 1GBs have not such a big difference. :)

The card got the 5 egg rate from newegg, you can check the feedback for people's opinions & thoughts on the card.

But anyway, Sapphire is the best partner for AMD, i've been using their products since the X1900 GT and nothing went wrong. I have the Sapphire HD 6950 non ref card but not the Dirt 3 Edition, mine got 1 Fan and it never reaches 70 on full load.

Wow, I din't know Sapphire has such a good relationship with AMD. Good to know, I guess Sapphire is my new GPU Brand :D 

I heard 2GB is good for Eyefinity and or higher resolution. So I thought it might give me smoother frame rates since I game with 1080p. Plus, the 1GB and 2GB price are not far apart so why not just get the higher memory :p
