SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 480 DirectX 12 100406NT+4GOCL 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: This card is awesome. Looks great with the metal back plate. Button to change the LED colors, removable fans for easy cleaning and only one 8 pin PCI-E power required. Clocked at roughly 1300 MHz core and 1700 MHz mem clock this baby does work! 4 GB of GDDR5 mem helps out too. I bought this card to up my effects quality in ARK and it delivered. I went from a Sapphire R270X playing at low and medium settings with little anti-aliasing and 1920x1080 resolution to this Sapphire RX 480 now playing with all High settings and some set to Epic. I use the AMD game profile through the catalyst to up quality as well by enabling AMD optimized tessellation and AMD optimized anisotropic filtering. I play at 1920x1080 and my frames are consistent around 45-60. NO screen tare or choppiness. This card is great and I recommend it to anyone wanting a great performing single card. I plan to get a second card to up my gameplay even more.

Cons: Don't have the money to get a second card right now. :(

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 100354OC-2L 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: GHz Edition- runs fast
Saphire- they are quality and make great hardware
Keeps cool- With the Saphire Trixx software you can set a custome fan graph.
Been able to run everything on high @ 1920x1080 and 4x anisotropic filtering in the games i am currently playing with no notice in dropped frames. Games are Rift, Sacred 2, COD Ghosts, Torchlight 2, Borderlands 2 (with PhysX on HIGH)
Great card overall
Also a great size. This card isn't a monster like most in it's class. Will fit comfortably in a ATX mid tower. Probably fit no prob in a micro ATX as well.

Cons: None that i see so far.

HIS IceQ Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 H787Q2G2M 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: This card is a beast. The specs speak for themselves with it being a GHz Edition card. This card ran at about 26 degrees at idol, and it didn't get over 50 degrees for me under full load with 70% fan speed. Played Path Of Exiles at all high settings and it played the game flawlessly (POE isnt the most graphically intense game but it looks great and i played on all high with 16X antisotropic filtering) I never dropped below 60 fps

Cons: The card was defective. I could play for a little then the screen would go black and the computer would restart. I first thought it may be a driver issue. Uninstalled the latest drivers from AMD and went to the HIS sight and installed there recommended drivers. Still had the problem so i put the old cards in, (pair of XFX Black Edition HD4890's) has worked fine since.
I RMA'd the card and am getting a Sapphire HD 7870 GHz Edition instead.
Would have liked this card to not be broke. I wanted to give HIS a chance.

Other Thoughts: This card is very big and long. I suggest watching the newegg video. They cover how big it really is. I have a full Azza tower and its a comfy fit. If you had HDD\SSD in the way it wouldnt fit.
