1 out of 5 eggsFailure after one year.

Pros: 7870s are great for the price. I bought this one on Black Friday because it was about $0.99 cheaper than any other company's offering.

Cons: Died after one year of relatively light use. I clean my machines well, and my fiancee (whose computer this was in) isn't an incredibly intense power game. This thing wasn't exactly overheating. Nevertheless, after one year I have to replace it. I'm really disappointed in Sapphire's craftsmanship here.

Other Thoughts: It was a good card while I had it. I'm just extremely disappointed that I need to shell out another $200 so quick. I wasn't prepared for this kind of expense.

3 out of 5 eggsCrashes

Pros: See Other Thoughts

Cons: See Other Thoughts

Other Thoughts: I got this card more than a year ago. I actually did not know that so many people were having their computer crash because of this.

Today, I just found out this was the problem. I'm one of the less fortunate ones to have a faulty card. I do NOT overclock at all.

When the card works well, it REALLY works well. Everything is beautiful on WoW, GW2 or BF3.

Lately, I've started crashing every other day. I've turned down my graphics settings in-game to the minimum. I still get crashes.

I'm not even sure it's worth buying another, from all the complaints I see about it causing crashes.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry that you are having problems with your card.

If you are getting consistent crashing then we would recommend initiating the RMA process.

1 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: This card is great for it's power for it's price range.

Cons: It has this issue when you run newer games in Fullscreen of down throttling it's power causing the games to crash and go into a sound loop and black out the screen. The card has a lot of potential and even trying some work arounds this card still has issues. Pay the extra money and get the nvidia equivalent. It was promising but updates are lacking For this known issue.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible

Pros: What a great purchase. I got this last black friday and I'm still super happy with my purchase. I'm seriously about to order another one to be honest I really like that I can throw most things at this and not get hurt with FPS.

Cons: I don't have a second one.

Other Thoughts: Great card, will purchase again.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

Pros: Runs fast and quiet on stock settings. I don't OC so I like factory OC video cards when I upgrade for a little extra boost. My motherboard is an older Asus P5E, and it runs this just fine with NO problems whatsoever.

Cons: It's discontinued. In the future if I ever want to do a match crossfire set, I will have to purchase a used one and hope it's the same model, but I know it doesn't have to match with it being crossfire.

Other Thoughts: Still working great after 2 months of daily gamer use for 4-5 hours a day.

4 out of 5 eggsStrong, minus the random black screens.

Pros: Cheaper than Nvidia
It will run Battlefield 3 and Far Cry 3 on ultra at ~52 fps with my amd fx-8150.
Stays relatively cool and isn't as noisy as I thought it would be.

Cons: From the box I've been seeing random black screens during gameplay. These only happen about 1-3 times a day and they only last about 2-5 seconds but it's enough to warrant an issue. I've read it's a simple driver issue and if that is the case I would like to see a patch.

Other Thoughts: This card sold like it was made of gold and I was fortunate to buy it up before it was discontinued. I've been overall happy with its performance but I am beginning to think I shouldn't have allowed myself to fall for the hype.

Pros: Lower price point than Nvidia

Good specs

Installed without issue

Cons: After one month, decided to start having issues that included spiking, flicker and black screens.

Sapphire support sent me to third-party for replacement and they are charging 15 dollars each way.
