The 7970 is overkill... for just about anyone without a wall of screens to play with, and the speed it provides over the much cheaper 7950 is questionable. It's your classic positioning product put there not because AMD expects to sell a lot of them, but just to complete the lineup and make all the others look better in comparison. If someone favors bragging rights more than a full wallet and decides to buy one anyway... so much the better.
If I was buying a Radeon right now I'd get a 7850 which is even cheaper still, and still provides enough performance to drive just about any single monitor configuration.
Do not meddle in the affairs of archers, for they are subtle and quick to anger.
