This review is from: PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 7870 MYST. Edition (Tahiti LE) DirectX 11.1 AX7870 2GBD5-2DHPPV3E 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (UEFI Ready)
Pros: Great performance for the price. Get a 7900 series, Tahiti, based GPU for a 7800 price.
Cons: Card runs hot and loud. The heatsink is barly good enough for default settings. I would not overclock this card unless the heatsink is upgraded.
Other Thoughts: Dollar for dollar its one of the best deals out there. It does use more power and produces more noise and heat but if you don't overclock it should be ok.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Card is smaller so should fit in some smaller cases.
Runs cool at default settings.
Good HTPC card.
Cons: Only has DDR3 ram which holds the card back (ddr5 is better)
Heatsink is smaller so overclocking will cause it to run warm.
Price is about $30-40 to much for this level of card.
No low profile bracket.
Other Thoughts: The GT640 and GTX650 are the same GPU but one has DDR3 the other DDR5.
Spend the extra $10-20 and get the GTX650. Better heatsink and much faster ram.
