Oldie, but goldie Served me well for few years now. For me it is my comfort after a long day at work, or after a fight with the worse half
Unfortunately lately my mighty 7950 started dying on me... first there are graphic glitches, that I believe are due to bad ram chip, and also the problematic fans that are already noisy...
Still my rig is fighting the war against the dark side of the force (Battlefront is my biggest drug lately), but I hope it won't fail as the budget doesn't fit with a new video card...
P.S. Little bit of update

Since I didn't win the new year's giveaway, I bought a second 7950 and put it in first place, so the load is mostly on it, and my current one as the second card. This doesn't solve my problems, but at least can postpone it for a while My wife stays... for now
I also had a problem with the HD 7950 fans, 1 of 2 failed actually wich resulted in alot heat and graphical issues. Instead of buying a new card I bought an Accelero Arctic Xtreme IV 280(X) to replace the original fans and it's running cooler and more silent than ever before. So that might be an option for you.
Yeah, I was thinking about the same cooler actually. But the fact that now I have to buy 2 of them is still making me wonder if I should go to single 390 instead or wait for R9 Nano to drop down a little...
