XFX Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 HD-687X-CNFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: - Great card for its time
- Still plays games on high settings past 30fps

Cons: - Fan is loud at times
- Overheats VERY easily
- Needs 3rd party software to control fan speeds from default to prevent overheating (or, preferably, aftermarket heatsink/fans)

Other Thoughts: Just recently, after having this card since 2011, I was experience extreme overheating while playing just simple games (temps went as high as 109ºC). I haven't really had much problems with over heating but the temps have always been high (around ~65ºC on idle and around ~85-90ºC on heavy load). But recently the overheating started to cause my computer to shut down. I had to take the heatsink and fan off just to see what the problem really was. The main problem I noticed right away was whoever made this card used WAY too much paste. There was so much paste that it was spread onto the main board. I had to clean all of the paste off and re-apply. After this I was getting MUCH better idling temp of ~51ºC. This was still not good enough for me so I installed MSi Afterburner and changed the default fan speeds just to see if I could get any lower. Now I am getting an Idling speed of ~37ºC. As far as being under heavy load I have not yet tested that, but I will check back with my results. This should not have to be done to get good temps, but it's a fairly old card so it was expected to do a little maintenance.

Pros: - Great price
- Works as it should
- Low latency.

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: I usually always get G.Skill and I've never had a problem with any of my modules. I always recommend this brand to my friends and family. Though one of my friends swears to Kingston, I prefer G.Skill. Great memory over all.
