5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Performs quite well. Very quite. Excellent power efficiency. My core can OC to 1160 MHz with stock voltage of 1218mV. After flashing in a newer BIOS with higher voltage of 1243mV, the core can OC to 1200MHz. I was able to edit the BIOS with a hex editor to make the OC permanent (i.e. no more need for OC software). 3dMark11 score is around P8900 with 13.1 drivers. I believe this beats gtx 580 and gtx 660 ti at stock settings, and comes close to a stock gtx 670. Maximum OC for the core is 1275MHz, but this requires further voltage and is not 100% stable. Maximum 3dMark11 score is around P9200. Very cool with a maximum temperature of 69C when OCd to 1200MHz and stressed with Furmark. Sapphire makes excellent coolers.

Cons: Not as fast as 7950, as 7950 has much more OC headroom. My memory can OC to only about 1250 MHz before error correcting comes into play and introduces a performance hit. I keep the memory at 1248 MHz. I lost the OC lottery with the memory, as others seem to be able to OC the memory to 1400 MHz or so. I had a Sapphire 7770 with memory that could OC to 1350 MHz before error correcting came into play and could OC up to 1600 MHz without crashing. I was hoping for similar memory with the 7870, but no luck. The low OC on my memory is holding me back. I think I would be able to get a 3dMark11 score of around P10000 if the memory could OC to 1450MHz without error correcting coming into play.

Other Thoughts: Now that GTX Titan has been released, my card looks like a performance wimp :-( I wonder if AMD will be able to answer.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome GPU

Pros: Two fans
Two GB VRAM

Handles every game I've thrown at it beautifully (usually over 60 fps). Battlefield 3 maxed out, Metro 2033 maxed out, Skyrim maxed out plus quite a few visual mods.

Came with Sleeping Dogs, which it also maxed out.

Cons: Been experiencing some artifacts and texture issues in a few games, but I'm not sure if that's the cards fault, the drivers, or the games themselves. Ultimately, it's not enough to harm my review though.

Other Thoughts: This card is fantastic, playing games on it feels great.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Quality for the Price

Pros: - Can play most games at 1080p with max settings
- Can turn a 2 year old computer into a relevant gaming machine

Cons: - makes you want to upgrade the rest of the computer to go along with it

Other Thoughts: Well worth the money. I am super happy with my investment. I had to play games on medium to low settings previously, now I can crank up all the details to max and still have the game play smoothly.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb GPU

Pros: This card is amazing for the price. It compares almost to a 7950 in performance for much cheaper. It runs BF3 on Ultra with no problems at all. Skyrim on Ultra with tons of texture mods easily.

I would suggest this card to anyone who wants a solid and future proof GPU, but doesn't want to get into the super expensive range.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful!

Pros: This card maxes out all my games. I won the overclockability lottery on this one. I can get 1300/1525 cool and stable. I keep it at stock though unless I benchmark because it's more than enough power.

Cons: None

Pros: amazing graphics, temps stay low

Cons: i was so happy to buy this card.. huge radeon fan, but it kept freezing my whole computer under havy load.. so heres my money going out the window again, and all the tests point to it being my computers fault.. but now im back to my old 5770.. and my computer never freezes.. whatever
