Great when it's working 03/11/2013
Great bang for the buck. If you purchase any 7870 you won't regret it. It will run modern games (BF3, Diablo 3, etc) on the highest settings without a problem.
Low cost / high performance
The card it self has no cons in my opinion.
However, I doubt I'll be buying HIS again. Read on.
I've owned this specific card since July 2012. The fan died on me in Feb and I had to RMA it, I've been without a video card since Feb 18th. I have to say that the RMA process with HIS has been the worst experience I've had. When an RMA is needed you don't go through HIS you go through some third party vendor that lacks completely in communication. I've had to contact them to verify they even received my video card. Once they receive you are informed not to contact them for 2-4 weeks. At this point I have no idea where my replacement is, or when I should even expect one.
I don't understand why a replacement takes 3+ weeks. If HIS wants to hold on to its customers they should starting doing RMA on their own or through someone else.
