Feels like my 6800 Ultra (that's a good thing) 01/24/2014
Replaced a 6870 with this amazing card back in May 2013 and have loved every moment since. The 7870 is fast, has a generous 2GB of onboard RAM and looks amazing. Back when the Nvidia 6800 was the "video game standard" I felt confident I could play any game at great settings. I get the same peace of mind with the entry from AMD. The 7870 should be viewed as the industry standard for some time and I know for at least the next 2-3 years this thing is going to be pushing out incredible graphics and performance.
While not as loud as some other AMD cards (my 4890 was a beast) this guy makes his presence felt when you fire up your PC. Unless you have a tower with some type of sound dampening, you'll hear the steady sound of the dual fans on this card. Not loud, but not silent by any means.
This card looks amazing paired with my Corsair 600T case. White and black trim hasn't looked this good since stormtroopers :P
