PowerColor PCS+ AX7870 2GBD5-2DHPPV Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition (Vortex II Edition) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: i get an average of 55fps in ultra settings with farcry 3 soloing this card so yeah. this card is pretty good.
as far as heating issues i've had zero, this heatsink is a beast.
i havent tried crossfire and am a little hesitant to use this card twice for heating issues as it doesnt blow the hot air out of the back it just blows it away from the card (my case is a monster when it comes to airflow so this is no issue at all)
ive thought about grabbing the comparable powercolor 7870 that blows the heat outside the back of the case to place below this one.

Cons: i had some slight driver issues but that may well have been my own fault, at first i downloaded the driver through windows update (unintentional) but then i got the driver/software through powercolor and all is well.

Other Thoughts: with the heat dissipating piped on the side this makes for a snug fit against the side door to your case, i have to bend my power cables down to fit the door on with my fan in the way.
