XFX Double D Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 HD-687A-ZDFC 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Pros: Ill tell you what, don't spend $500 on a GTX 680 and here's why XFX 6870 Test OVERCLOCKING BURN-IN SCORE: 4964 points (49135 frames, 54 °C, 54 FPS)
GPU temperatures (start/end): 46°C / 59°C. To achieve this score it take about 2 weeks of tweaking and water cooling, Afterburner, Trixx, and CCC(AMD OverDrive) I use FurMark Burn-in tests to test for stability and keep an eye on my temps.

My other Pc runs with a EVGA GeForce GTX 680
Overclocking BURN-IN SCORE: 4604 points (45747 frames, 81 °C, 50 FPS)??? what how you might ask, well that B***** overheats even with water cooling

NO overclocking and No water cooling
XFX DoubleDissipation: 2224 points (37 FPS)
GPU: 900MHz
Mem: 1050MHz
GPU temp: 68-69°C

EVGA GeForce GTX 680: 2699 points (44 FPS)
GPU: 1005MHz
Mem: 3004MHz
GPU temp: 74°C

All the test include
Bench duration: 900 seconds
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
MSAA samples: 0
Window mode: fullscreen

To put it into simple words great GPU its a steal for only $180 then you got that XFX LifeTime warranty, Its like their throwing money at you.

OverClocked Everything MAXXED OUT
Skyrim 90-95 FPS
BF3 - 80 FPS
Warz - 79-83 FPS
Blackops2 - 75-78 FPS
Killing Floor - 135 fps
PlantSide2 - 50-60FPS in big battles 38-42 FPS

Cons: It should be illegal to sell cards this good for this cheap.

Other Thoughts: ASRock P67 EXTREME4
CPU: IntelR CoreTM i5-2500K
GPU: XFX 6870
PSU: CX750
Ram: CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB 1866MHz
Hard drive: 1TB WD VelociRaptor 10000 RPM 64MB Cache
OS: Windows 7
Tower: HAF 932 Advanced

Cons: That watt box made me laugh 180 watts, thats enough to power my cigarette lighter
