    For sale is my XFX 7970 GHz edition with the DD cooling solution.

    It acquired it in a trade on this very forum recently but would now like something different.

    It's this very card:

    XFX HD 7970 GHz DD Edition AMD Radeon Graphics Card with Ghost Thermal & Hydrocell- 3GB - FX-797G-TDFC - Scan.co.uk

    Comes with invoice from December 2012 so still the remaining balance of warranty left.

    It has also been fitted with one of these by myself:

    EK-FC7970 Backplate - Black CSQ - 3831109856727 - Scan.co.uk

    This does not effect warranty in any way. The screw holes required for the backplate were not the ones covered by the warranty stickers. A bag containing the original screws is included.

    There are a few small marks on the silver surrounds of the fans (the circular chrome areas). These were present when I received the card but they are nothing of note I'm just trying to be honest in my description.

    Looking for £260 plus delivery costs.

    Thanks,

    Rob.

    The review of my 7950 made it seem like the best card in the world when it came through it was just awful.
    Besides that I'll take your word for it as you've used this one.
    Have you clocked it at all? Why are you selling?

    I have the side off my case currently having just had the card out to take pics. I'm currently running the card and I can't hear it until I stop the two fans on my rad and my rear fan with my fingers.

    Though with that said if your 7950 was the Double D edition I think it's probably likely to be the same.

    I've only had the card a week and to be honest I'm only selling because I fancy a Lightning again. I haven't personally overclocked the card yet as I haven't had time although i did ask the same question to the member I traded it with. He said he'd tested the card and had it at 1175 for tests (I assume benches) but only for a few minutes and he had used it at stock (1050MHz). He also said he hadn't tried any higher than that.

    Can you meet me at £260?

    That's really the minimum posted I would like.

    I investigated this matter before I offered on the card initially.

    Scan's website shows 12 months warranty but that's incorrect because it also states the manufacturer is D-Link?

    XFX HD 7970 GHz DD Edition AMD Radeon Graphics Card with Ghost Thermal & Hydrocell- 3GB - FX-797G-TDFC - Scan.co.uk

    Bottom left of the page.

    XFX offer a 2 year warranty on the cards but this has to be through the retailer. That would mean this card has approx 21 months warranty left to run. I have the invoice from Scan for the card so going via retailer is no issue.

    Accepted.

    I'm away from home until Friday. If you're okay with it being posted then then we have a deal.

    PM me if that's okay.
