PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card AX7870 2GBD5-2DHV4E/OC

Pros: update to my old review. originally had an issue with the fan, thats why it was running hot. took card out, put it back in and its working properly now. runs much cooler. also, for cryptomining, the settings i used for my old card was poor for this card. once i found the sweet spot, seems to run much better. overall, good purchase.

Cons: rebates sucks

Pros: games better than my old card (6850).

Cons: runs hotter than my 6850. (over 100*c) hashes worse than my 6850 at the same intensity. games worse than a similarly priced nvidia. only had for a day. comtemplating returning.

nice upgrade

Pros: can use with ddr2 cheap quad core 3ghz

Cons: no l3

Overall Review: my brother's rig was dying, he had 8gb of ddr2 ram, so i paired it with this.

for htpc

GIGABYTE GA-H57M-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel H57 HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: cheap h57 board 7 sata ports usb 3.0

Cons: only has fan connectors for cpu and exhaust fan. no onboard fan pin for intake fan no sata 6gbs will not boot to windows in ahci mode, i think theres a fix to this, but i don't need it so i didn't bother.

Overall Review: purchased this for an micro htpc/server build. at the time, it was only a couple bucks more than the h55 version. so why not, better resale value. plus it has 7 sata ports for my movie harddrives. although, i also own an asus h55 evo board, and i think i like the evo board better, but it only had 6 sata ports.

good while it lasted
