Hey guys,

I'm looking at buying this card

PowerColor PCS+ HD7970 3GB GDDR5 VORTEXII
http://www.powercolor.com/Global/products_features.asp?...

I plan on doing some benches and other stuff with it to see a difference from my 7970 reference like how well does it oc and other stuff.

so I wanted to ask the people here how good is this card? is it built with good quality? I've look through reviews and seems like a solid card, I wanted to add it to some of my nice amd gpu collection, and finally get to test a non reference 7970 :love: 

need some feedback specially from people who has the card

also wanted to ask for the 7950 PCS+ and the 7950 with dual fans on how good are they.

Vc, ati, PowerColor PCS+ HD 7970 3GB GDDR5 VORTEXII
PHP 17000.00 = 416$ (US) and its the cheapest 7970 on the market (non reference)

I've owned Powercolor hardware and I wouldn't touch it now - cheap and faulty. Same goes for VTX3D (it's the same guys, Tul Corporation). Gigabyte are a good bet. You could also grab a GTX670 and get the same performance for less money (plus PhysX, adaptive v-sync, FXAA etc).
