Have those been fixed yet, they're the main reason I want an nvidia instead.

Thanks.

No black screen or blue sreens here. Skyrim doesn't like 12.11 with my 7870, but they're beta drivers anyway.

Haven't had a single issue with 12.10.
Pretty solid now.

my 7970 is not stable in far cry 3, but that's the only game giving me problems and its very new so its buggy

I can tell you that I have the Sapphire 7870 2GB OC version, which if you search the Web about, is probably the biggest culpret of that black screen problem of all the different manufacturers. I've had the card for two months and have had zero problems with the card itself and the 12.11 never settle drivers make it run stuff pretty awesome. I play Star Wars the Old Republic on high with no AA turned on at 65-100 fps at all times and played GW2 for a couple weeks on high settings as well, constantly getting great fps.

Got the card on Newegg on super sale, like 189.00 w/ Far Cry 3 free download, it's been worth every penny.
