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: I play everything 1080p and games run fine. Now fine doesn't mean that it runs ultra in everything, but you definitely have some room to play with current games to bounce between higher fps and graphics. I mostly play bf3, mostly medium settings(auto under bf3), not sure of frame rate but I don't notice any major slowdown.
1st gpu purchased, and I was extremely happy with XFX and wanted to get a 7870 DD but newegg sold out. I have no knowledge of XFX prior to my purchase and thought they had excellent customer service (had an issue with registering the card - they stayed in contact via email within hours).

Cons: My only con really deals with some of the reviewers who tell you that they can run bf3 in ultra with billions of fps. I bought into some of the hoopla thinking I could do more with this card than I actually good.

It runs just fine as long as you don't expect 1080 60+fps on BF3.

Other Thoughts: asrock z77 pro 4m

4 out of 5 eggs Pretty Good Case 11/26/2012

This review is from: IN WIN MANA134 Black SEEC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Fits my 6870 double d without any issue. Seems to have good air flow. Overall I feel satisfied with my 1st case purchase. Plenty of space/racks for hds. cable ties included.
Front usb section is really convenient.

Cons: I'll say that this is probably some user-laziness here, but case has gotten much louder as of late. Will go through and dust/clean the case in the next week or so

Other Thoughts: When I first started putting together my first pc I thought I would just get a cheap case, which I was able to pick this up for cheap after rebate. I have no qualms with this case, but after spending sometime with it, I feel like a higher quality case may have been worth the money. But this was a good first case to get
