My sis needs a new gfx card, perfect timing for a xmas present!

December 5, 2012 | 03:47 PM - Posted by okron1k (not verified)

The never settle bundle is really tempting on its own, I haven't used anything from amd or ati since the 9600 xt. Wouldn't mind trying it for free. I've got my fingers crossed.

December 5, 2012 | 03:49 PM - Posted by Gunbuster

Nice card! This would find a good home in my PC.

December 5, 2012 | 03:49 PM - Posted by Dorkstar

Need for upgrading my gaming rig...

December 5, 2012 | 03:54 PM - Posted by Michael (not verified)

:( I would sure love to have a 7970 because Guild Wars 2 runs horridly on my 670.

December 5, 2012 | 04:00 PM - Posted by YTech2 (not verified)

Ryan Shrout >

I believe you should do a live cast with the HD7970-DC2T-3GD5
ASUS HD 7970 DirectCU II.

For the amount of HDMI ports and only 3GB of GDDR5, I am hesitant about the quality and resolution when used as 6 eye (monitor) setup. Does it support 6 stereoscopic outputs as well? I suspect to see some tears and bad image sync. Please enlighten me!

Then, at the end of the cast, you can give away the card. :)

December 5, 2012 | 04:01 PM - Posted by okan

Just registered for this. Been listening to the podcast and have pcper in my RSS feeds. I'm more interested in the asus cooler on the gpu, I believe I read somewhere recently that it is one of the quieter aftermarket coolers.

December 5, 2012 | 04:07 PM - Posted by James Luchford (not verified)

I don't know if I want to win this.... It would "change my life :)

December 5, 2012 | 04:09 PM - Posted by Chopperz (not verified)

Pcper rocks! This would be a great Christmas present!!

December 5, 2012 | 04:10 PM - Posted by mjaybird (not verified)

This would look good in my new computer I just built with a Gigabyte motherboard. Maybe I can get Farcry3 or Crysis 3 when I win those video cards

December 5, 2012 | 04:11 PM - Posted by Steve0

Haven't won yet, but maybe this is my chance. Thanks for this,and all the other opportunities pcper and AMD. I'm in the middle of a new build, this would compliment it nicely!

December 5, 2012 | 06:23 PM - Posted by Snoman

Well that beast would let me finally play something other than TF2, BF1942, and Quake3 Arena, and give my nuclear reactor sized power supply a reason to be in my case. Thanks AMD for providing PC Perspective the means to offer this giveaway.

December 5, 2012 | 06:27 PM - Posted by Jason Keane (not verified)

i love the DirectCU cards. :D Would love to own one. :) So Count me in

SO if someone purchases a 79xx Series card, they will get most of the popular games. That's so awesome. What about the older owners of 79xxx series cards?

December 5, 2012 | 06:43 PM - Posted by papajohn
