ASUS DOES NOT HONOR WARRANTY

Pros: Used to work

Cons: After some time the card started to show red dot artifacting on the screen in games and in windows 2D environment. I sent the card back under warranty 3 TIMES and they sent it back WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. They didn't do anything to repair or replace the card and just give you the runaround.

Other Thoughts: I've bought many Asus motherboards and video cards building computers for my business and I've moved onto other manufacturers after being treated like this by ASUS. Never again.

Good board/ useless tech support

Pros: loaded with features and has good software.

Cons: Installation documentation that came with the board was incorrect. Spent 2 months with ASUS email support and even sent the board in for warranty repair. Then I found a you tube video someone made that showed that the board REQUIRES 2 power feeds from the power supply. The install page tells you not to use the second one.

2/ 5

Pros: 2 fans

Cons: The drivers from AMD's site and the latest driver on Asus's site resulted in a very jumpy gameplay. I discovered this is caused by the core clock frequency jumping rapidly up and down from 1010 to 450 MHz. The only driver I got to work is the old driver on Asus's site.

I hope this issue will be addressed in future drivers, but I'm not counting on it.

"Star Performer"

Pros: FAST
Quiet Under Load
Cooler Than Expected
Plays BF3 and GW2 on Max settings smoothly!
PCI-E 3.0 seems to be boss

Cons: Somewhat large card - make sure you have adequate space!

Other Thoughts: I wound up not buying this from Newegg because I found it locally for about $10 less without a rebate required. But I rarely buy anywhere else besides Newegg and as this card nears the $200 price point it will likely be the best at that price point. I upgraded from a GTX 480 Fermi and a 6850 before that. This card hands-down outperforms either of those cards in a big way. Where the GTX 480 suffered, mostly in heat and sustained FPS with lots of detail, the 7870 excells. Running at 1920x1080, BF3 and GW2 (Guild Wars 2) I have everything maxed. I haven't seen GW2 dip under 58 FPS yet, and the great thing is I'm running stock. I'll OC some if I need to for big multiplayer events if it dips a bit, but from what I hear this card has some room to push without suffering instability. A great buy for me.

Great!

Pros: - Runs quiet
- No driver issues
- Plays any game i have attempted at their fullest level no problem
- Looks pretty cool

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I am a big battlefield fan and probably always will be, so i was looking for something that could give me the best performance without breaking my budget too much. I was a little skeptical because i really thought that in order to play full ultra i would need something like a gtx 670 or something, but i tried this and it is amazing! I have my settings set to ultra with AA down to 8x and i am able to get about 50-65 fps on average. The lowest ive seen is 35 but the area was under a lot of activity and it quickley fixed itself. Budget wise, you cannot go wrong with this card it is fantastic! I heard the preice on them might be dropping soon so you may be able to pick up two and crossfire, idk.
