what problems with the card have you looked up. In my opinion. in the past month, I technically seen more people have problems with the nvidia counterpart gtx 670/680 recently vs the 7970

There were a number of problems with the card when it came out because the drivers didn't fully support it yet. However Catalyst 12.3 solved many of these issues. Catalyst 12.4-6 make incrimental improvements but tend to break crossfire scaling. Catalyst 12.7 beta propels the 7970 above the GTX 680 in many benchmarks.

looks like this one in particular has a LOT of DOA's. but if you ordered it from Amazon or newegg who cares. DOA's are easy to deal with, just send it back.

Don't know what your res is but a single 7970 is not gonna drive 6 1080p screens for gaming.

u will need dual card setup for 6 monitor and each works as their self (no crossfire/SLI)...

Why would u regret if u haven't use/see the card? (there a possibility u're the lucky one, to get no problems/high binned card)

um. no. this is AMD land, where a single eyefinity 6 card has been capable of driving 6 monitors for YEARS. They are designed for crossfire. and its probably needed for decent fps with 6 monitors in game, but dual cards is NOT required.
