5 out of 5 eggsSufficient

Pros: Suffices, when paired with a 3570K and z77 msi mpower board, in running the following at maximum settings (@1080p):
Without OC:
Skyrim
Sleeping Dogs
Far Cry 3
SimCity (2013)

OC'd to 1100 core / 1575 mem (no voltage change):
Company of Heroes 2
ARMA 3 (5000 draw distance for objects and environment)

Cons: None. At this point might be even better after rebadging and a further price drop

Other Thoughts: no regrets with this card. stays under 70c with my setup OC'd.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cards, fluctuating prices

Pros: I managed to snag two of these cards and got lucky with both being 8+6 pin 7970 PCBs. They are stock boost clocked to 960 core and 1250 memory, so I don't know where the MSI support tech responding to reviews is getting that none exist. I asked MSI for a UEFI GOP bios and permission to redo the thermal paste after seeing high temps, and got both. Secure/Fast boot is great and crossfire is very smooth on the latest catalyst beta.

Cons: The price goes up and down quite a bit, as do the included items. Having to redo the thermal paste is not something I expected.

Other Thoughts: If you can get them at the price you want, you'll outperform a titan at a very small fraction of the price.

1 out of 5 eggsmajor dissapointment

Pros: quiet

Cons: The specifications shows this comes clocked at 880mhz and 1250 memory. Imagine my hopeful surprise when I saw the stock core (not boost) clocked at 960Mhz and 1250 memory.
I was surprised alright....... Surprised that my Asus 1gb 6870 out performs this!!!!!. I did the catalyst updating, MB Bios,checked power outputs etc looking for problems.
Well it looks like I got a bad card with NONE of the atypical or usual indications. I just assume it was burned in (overclocked) to try and squeak by and pass a Q.C. test at the factory ... then out the door!
Defective core power states, just conjecture in my opinion.

I mean really?........ a 1gb 6870 out preforming this card??

Will be RMA ing this to NEWEGG

Other Thoughts: I have had great MSI cards in the past

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsSecond dead MSI 7950 in 7 months

Pros: The 7950 is a great chipset. Newegg did a great job handing the situation when the first card arrived doa.

Cons: I've been a MSI motherboard and graphics card customer for years. I think MSI failed on the design with this card. The first one was doa. Seven months later the replacement has died on me. I'm shipping it back to MSI today but at this point I've lost all confidence in this card and its reliability.

3 out of 5 eggsbeware - rebate is b.s.

Pros: The card is great -- fast and cool. No hitches whatsoever. I don't OC, because I have a 965 BE, and it would bottleneck any OCs.

Cons: Rebate denied. MSI claims that I never sent my UPC, etc. I scanned everything - UPC, invoice, etc. I even gave MSI the $2 for "expedited processing." I've never had trouble with rebates from other manufacturers in the past, but I guess MSI is pulling the standard B.S. Sure, you could get tracking on your letter, but then you've eaten up 20% of your rebate.

4 out of 5 eggsPictures need to be changed

Pros: Runs well and I did like the price drop + combo w/ free games to get my second card. I'm currently using CrossFire and I can reach 100+ FPS (also using an AMD FX-8350)

Cons: Only starts to really get warm when using two or more cards, but that's expected.

Other Thoughts: The pictures on this page need to be updated. I was almost worried that I didn't buy the same card to be able to crossfire because I noticed the newer version requires an 8-pin and 6-pin power connector. I did find that it is still the same card but the template is a newer revision. V276 is the older, V277 is the newer (you can find it right above the PCIe pins).

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Card, but forget the 'Free Games.'

Pros: Goes on sale for around $200 often
Maxes everything on single 1080p setups
Sturdy card, runs very cool
7950 Good, MSI bad.

Cons: Even after sending several support emails, I never got my copy of Far Cry 3.
Forget your rebate too.
Makes me wonder how I would be treated if I had to RMA this thing ever...

Other Thoughts: The card itself- great. Couldn't ask for more. Nvidia has zero competitors at this price point, remember this card goes on sale for around $200 often, wait for it.

I have to give 1 star for just plain broken promises and false advertising. You cant have offers included as selling points and not deliver on them.

Two issues-

The free games: Far Cry 3 key was reported as invalid. Tried to contact support several times, they gave me the run around every time. Beware, if you have any issues you will NOT get your free games. Thanks for nothing AMD.

MSI's rebate: Total joke. They have the same rebate every month, and it lasts for one month before it repeats again. This means that you have to order your card within the first 2 weeks of the month, otherwise you wont get your card in the mail in time to send in the rebate before it ends every month. So sneaky guys.

Grab a 7950, but not from MSI. Both Gigabyte and Asus have support and help AGES ahead of MSI.

I will probably never buy MSI again for fear how they would treat me if I ever had a problem with the actual card.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

The promotion did not come from MSI.
Please contact Newegg directly about the game since this promotion was offered by the vendor and AMD.

For rebate issues, please send us your proof of purchase and rebate documents to us at usreview@msi.com and we will review your case, thank you.

3 out of 5 eggsFast card, bad fans

Pros: -Fast
-Good cooling
-7970 pcb w00t!

Cons: -The fans die very early.

-One of my fans died inside of 3 weeks.

-When the fans die they sling their oil all over the card making for a nasty cleanup.

-The fan that spilled out all it's oil is now excessively noisey and rattles like a soda can at anything above 50% fan speed.

-MSi will NOT sell customers replacement fan assemblies.

-Did I mention cleaning up all the oil that gets slung around and how that it's not very fun?

Other Thoughts: For whatever reason, my original review, pretty much the same as this one, was not posted. ::shrugs::

1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

Pros: It's pretty quiet under load
Ran games on high with ease and not going over load

Cons: Defective from the start. I got the pcb with 4+6 pin. At first I thought it was a driver issue even though I made sure to uninstall the old before installing the new and restarting in between. I even went for a fresh install. Issue is that during game play it would run smooth BUT the screen flickers from time to time (every 10 secs). While it's a quick flicker, I didn't notice until I played more. Then I started seeing artifacts from certain cutscenes that goes across the screen and then it got a little worse. I guess I got a lemon and I wish I had a good one. At this time I have no video card, can't play games, AND i paid shipping back. I found that odd but newegg has always been great so I didn't push them too hard for a label.

Other Thoughts: Hoping for a good replacement by end of week.
