4 out of 5 eggsGood card if you can deal with the noise

Pros: The card size makes it viable for HTPC builds. The performance is top notch as you can turn up almost all of the settings on more recent games while playing in 1080p and get close to or above 60fps throughout. For the price, the performance is very good and made better by the free game offers being doled out at the moment. The additional adapters and crossfire connector is also great considering that a GeForce 650 I purchased before didn't have this.

Cons: Play any modern game and the fan kicks into high gear almost immediately. Whether it be Hitman Absolution, Zeno Clash II or even Lego Lord of the Rings, you've got to turn up your speakers to help drown out the fan noise. The temps are good as a result but this makes it terrible if you're trying to game late at night without disturbing people.

3 out of 5 eggsFan gets LOUD!

Pros: I got for its small size and only needing only one PCI-E power connection. It has that going for it. Great deal with AMD never settle promo, where it included 3 free games.

Cons: My case has very little room for a 2nd graphics card so purchased this for a crossfire setup to add a little more oomph. Sadly when it actually kicks in when gaming, it gets LOUD immediately. Less then a min in any modern game the fan gets to 80 percent and stays there. The temps stay in the mid-high 60c though.

Other Thoughts: The other 7870 I have is the HIS IceQ, that has a blower type fan. Its cooler and far superior. I never hear it and it very seldom goes over 60c if ever. I really wish I could fit two of these in my case, but I can't. :(

4 out of 5 eggsIngenious design, loud fan

Pros: Very short length (just over 8''), only one 6-pin power port, strong performance

Cons: Very loud fan

Other Thoughts: I looked at this for the same reason you are: the performance-to-card-length ratio. This card is the real deal, and it fit into my Antec Fusion Remote case effortlessly.

Performance is strong, for example running Tomb Raider admirably @1080p with max settings (but FXAA, not SSAA). Constant 60fps w/ vsync and TressFX requires turning some stuff down from Ultra to High, like LoD and SSAO. i7-920 @ 2.66GHz, 12GB triple-channel DDR3-1066 (yeah, I know).

The case is cramped and my HTPC is in a closet, so airflow is anything but optimal. Even then, it's no excuse for the volume of this fan under load. The thing's a wailer.

I took a chance knowing this was a possibility. It LOOKED like it might not be loud, and even if it was loud I wouldn't hear it because it's over in the closet.

Still. I don't hear it in the closet, but if I open the door, it's loud.

I love this card, though. Small, powerful...

...loud. lol.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The strength of a high-end card without the requirement of 2 pci-e power connections (bad for the OC'ers) and without the length of one. Plays all my games on max settings, some with AA, some without.

Cons: Lack of OC'ing potential

Can get a bit noisy when pushed.

Other Thoughts: At rest, the GPU can barely be heard over the sound of the case fan/s and cpu fan.

Comes with a crossfire bridge and a few other connectors.

Sweet stickers to show off.

No problems with this at all. Win 7 64-bit.

3 out of 5 eggsGood if it works.

Pros: The card seemed powerful and sleek. The plastic almost soft feeling on the fan was nice. It ran every game at max settings with little difficulty.

Cons: Mine was defective. Whenever I'd play a game the screen would stutter off and on for about 10 seconds, and during each stutter there would be an audible and annoying buzzing sound from the speaker. I returned it before it got worse, but I think the card was dying.

Other Thoughts: The 7870 card is quite good and strong. Just maybe think about going with another brand.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy Diamond.

Pros: It worked, occasionally.

Cons: Since Diamond has apparently ceased production on their original 7870 with blower-style fan, I'll have to write the review for this SKU. The card was problematic from the very beginning, black screening during Crysis, Skyrim, Doom 3, and other games. Drivers are a perennial issue for AMD, but the hardware is definitely to blame, as well (a bit of research reveals ALL AMD 7000 series cards were affected to some extent by bad capacitors/inductors, with Sapphire's cards exhibiting some of the highest failure rates). Figuring the card might be throttling due to high temperatures, I upgraded the cooling (a heinous violation of Diamond's draconian warranty policy, it seems) and all was fine for a few months. After Christmas, I moved the card over to a new case and used the stock cooler for testing purposes--issues began again. The card wouldn't produce any video, the fan spun up to 100% on boot and sounded like a hairdryer on high. I submitted an RMA request to Diamond (aka Best Data Products), and they informed me they would not honor the warranty after returning it because I'd "tampered" with the card. Sure, other manufacturers permit you to upgrade cooling without voiding your warranty, but not Diamond. They're the most despicable company in the hardware sector and their ratings on Newegg reflect that. Diamond then sat on my card for over a month, ignoring my calls and emails to return it. Finally, they returned it without so much as an apology for their sickening customer service practices. When I received the card, I took the heatsink back off, studied it, and realized the GPU core had been damaged; this was something that most assuredly happened AFTER I mailed the card to Diamond for RMA. So not only did they refuse to fix their defective garbage, but also managed to damage the card further, all the while disavowing themselves of having removed the heatsink to even examine it, superficially.

Other Thoughts: Don't do business with Diamond. With so many manufacturers to chose from, there's no reason to keep Diamond in business. Arcane business practices, truly sickening customer support, one of the worst warranties in the business...just don't do it.

5 out of 5 eggsMini-ITX sized video card

Pros: Small size, fits in Sugo SG-05 case (mini-itx), only needs one PCI express 6 pin power connector. Otherwise, it is a standard 7870 card, very fast and a good value for what you get.

Cons: Is reference speed only, somewhat noisy when being pushed. Has a mail in rebate instead of an instant one. It still gets 5 stars as I knew this when buying's a good deal at just over two hundred after rebate.

Other Thoughts: One of the shortest 7870 cards, great for Mini-ITX or Micro-ATX cases at just over 8 inches. As noted above, I am running this in a Sugo SG-05 case with a built in 450 watt power supply. So you don't need to go crazy on the power supply front either.

1 out of 5 eggs7800 issue

Pros: All initial appeances were awsome. Same specs as the physically larger version of the 7870's...
Same Chip same ram etc...
I really had High hopes for this card.

Cons: AMD cannot make drivers! Tried the drivers that came with it. Tried the 13.1 Drivers from AMD. The 12.11, Beta's etc...
Also tried a Clean Virgin Install of W7 & Driver/s.
I can say from working with this issure for over a week, It is not The CCC, tried even loading driver only! Prob still existed!
Video card crashes PC at random. May not even be gaming or even at the PC. Walk away for an hour come back, "Windows has recovered from an unexpected reboot"
Error "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding"
This was to be a significant upgrade from my Nv GTS250. The computer has always been rock solid. Stays on most of the time and never before experienced these issues till installing the 7870 chip. Also I would like to point out that I never unlocked the overclock screen on this card. With 1Ghz/1200Ghz I didn't expect to even need to!

Other Thoughts: Not sure why I tried ATI/AMD Radeon. Basically the awsome specs of this card like 256 bit 2G etc... In reality my old 1G 128bit card Ran CODWAW better. Certain textures on some maps would slow this card down very jerky, My old GTS250 never experienced this on same maps
I Have always swore by Nvidia and well that has been reaffirmed. After running into this problem I found so so many forum posts all over the net. This is a wide spread problem with AMD's Newer chips! AMD passes the buck! They officially posted this great long statement which advises to check all of these other things which were never wrong to begin with, at least in my situation! Like ram and case cooling, etc. This card ran at an amazingly cool 31c and rose to ~50c while running 3D load for 30 minutes.
AMD Still has not fixed the drivers to resolve this issue.

Since returning to my Nvidia card everything has gone back to normal no random reboots now 5 days without turning off as expected!

I am an IT Professional & have owned a PC Business since '94.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Compromise

Pros: less length, less power, less noise, less heat, more ports.

Cons: DMM confirmed this card is factory Bios locked at 1Ghz,
which is why it can get away with only one 6pin PCIe.

this card should be sub $200 already, especially with
the cheap 7870 Tehiti LE cards out from other OEM's.

Other Thoughts: i know many gamers would take an egg off for not be over clock'able, but it's refreshing to see an OEM make a compromise most customers don't bother with, for many other advantages most customers would prefer.

if you want to OC to the limit on a 7870, most would recommend the MSI Hawk, but since any 1Ghz 7870 will already give you WIE of 7.9, most won't bother.
