MSI Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 R7870-2GD5T/OC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 1050 MHz
  • 1 x DVI 1 x HDMI 2 x Mini DisplayPort
  • 1280 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 3.0 x16

Pros:

Runs spectacularly, stays incredibly cold (averaging 30-40 degrees cooler then my previous card, an msi 5770). After i tuned up my Athlon 2 x4 3.0 ghz cpu by unlocking the L3 cache, I was able to play Guild wars 2 on ultra high draw distance with all settings maxed in PvE for several hours at 35 fps or better.

Cons:

when the card hits 48 degrees, it gets kinda loud. when it hits 49 degrees, it gets really loud. when it hits 50 degrees it gets RIDICULOUSLY loud. like. stupid loud. However, it USUALLY does not get above 43 degrees. DayZ on high graphics stays consistently warmer then 47 degrees but nothing else i play gets above 45, and below this temperature i have to look to see if my computer is on.

Other Thoughts:

it is a big card. be warned if you have a small case. It also requires two pci power connectors, but comes provided with an adapter if you don't have that many like i don't. The card isn't a power sink though, I'm running a 430 watt power supply and have had no issues so far.
