5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card!

Pros: Awesome! Plays basically any game on high/ultra settings (1900x1200 resolution).
Runs cool
Able to overclock easily (running at 1000mhz easily...can probably push a bit further but no real reason to)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Got this last black friday for $180! An absolute steal for the performance at the time.
Got it to replace an nvidia 560 ti 448 and initially, I didn't really notice any drastic performance increase. This was ultimately due to my ancient cpu (Athlon X4 II 645) holding the video card back. I eventually upgraded to an i7 4770k and boy did it give this card room to stretch its legs! Drastic improvement in performance.
Considering now purchasing an r9 280 (rebadged version of this card) and have run them in crossfire....

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome.

Pros: I don't think there's a single game this card cannot run. Noise is not a problem, and the temperatures never get out of hand.

Cons: Discontinued.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: I got this card for $220 and I don't regret, it's pretty quiet, and lets me play my games on ultra at or above 60fps.

Cons: It is kinda ugly but considering my case doesn't have a window I'm okay with it

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far!

Pros: Runs Battlefield 4 @ 60+ Fps on stock settings. Easy to overclock and temps stay low. OC stable at 1100mhz , no need for more at this point. Price was right on my budget. Free games where ok , I dont play them much. Waiting on rebate still.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Have it paired with -

5 out of 5 eggsIt's great so far!

Pros: The most inexpensive 3G 7950 I could find. Simple install, simple config, pretty much plugged right in and worked.

Cons: The free game offer from AMD took some time & I had to email them about it... Didn't get the codes right away. Game selection isn't super awesome, but can't complain since they're 'free'.

Other Thoughts: I've not had a single hiccup w/ this card in the month+ I've owned it. Great for gaming (mostly Skyrim and Fallout).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs fast. Runs fine in Mac OS 10.9 without any complications.

Cons: Very warm.

Other Thoughts: I haven't pushed it to it's limit, primarily because I mostly use it for graphics acceleration in software, and PS2/Wii emulators. Yeah, sure, I can do other things, and sometimes I do... But with more game consoles coming right around the corner, my computer's GPU isn't altogether that important.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat in Crossfire!

Pros: Nice price, free games, decent aftermarket cooling.

Cons: Prices jumped in the last couple of weeks, but that's not an issue with the card.

Other Thoughts: Works great in Crossfire with my 7970, solid build, nice cooler, does exactly what I was hoping for and expected.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've been afraid of PowerColor in the past. It seems like consumers always rate them a little under Sapphire, MSI, or Gigabyte offerings. However, when swapping this card out with my previous Gigabyte 7870, I was impressed. The heft and build quality of the heatsink and fans of this PowerColor design were clearly superior to the Gigabyte.

Upon booting the card was just as silent as the previous 3 fan design from Gigabyte.

Overclocked to 1ghz easily with Afterburner and has been 100% stable.

Afterburner showed 37c idle and I haven't seen over 55c with my usual load. Never saw a fan speed over 35% either.

Usual load: Mulitple copies of WoW. Skyrim with a few mods, Civ5, Starcraft II, Path of Exile, Diablo III while streaming HD videos on 2nd monitor is my typical load.

Cons: PowerColor's PowerUp Tuner would only install in Japanese???? So I used MSI Afterburner.

Other Thoughts: I know this isn't a giant step up from the 7870 I had but I ordered this when it was 150.00 after rebate. Sold my old 7870 to a friend for 100.00. I'll turn over the 3 game card as well for 25. So, for 25 dollars the upgrade wasn't something I could pass up.

I think this card is easily still worth 200-230 given AMDs new pricing scheme for the R9-270 (200.00) and 280 (300.00).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Essentially silent at idle
Very, very quiet at load
Faster than a R9 270X
Very low idle power (entire i7-4770K 4.4GHz PC idles at 52W total input).

Cons: This card's fan design doesn't vent much air out the back of the case. You must have a well ventilated case to use this card.
It is flimsy. If you plan to move your case around a lot (e.g. take it to LAN parties) then you'll surely want to reinforce it. The end sags about 1/2"
Rebate process is tricky. Definitely designed to make you screw up so that they can keep their $30.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card because I wanted a quiet, if not silent, PC capable of running the newest games at 1080p. This card did not disappoint.
