Pros: Quiet & powerful. Has not trouble with any of my games at max settings and 1920x1080.
Cons: See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: My first unit only lasted a day or so before dying. And I mean it was totally dead. It would not even allow my PC to boot as it would hang on the VGA every time. Swap it out with my old 5770 and everything was fine. I figured I had just got a lemon so RMA'd it with Newegg. After a week or so I got my second unit. I run triple monitors so I knew I would need an active mini-display port adapter for this. I get my second unit in and running and all three monitors are working fine. Then my third monitor (the display port) stops getting a signal after about an hour of use. I figure my mini-display port adapter stopped working (its happened before) so I RMA'd it. Got the new adapter and plugged it in only to find that the third monitor STILL will not work. My PC will cannot even see the third monitor is there (which if the adapter were working in passive mode the PC should at least see it). At this point I am fairly certain the mini-display ports on my second 7870 are dead. This makes TWO lemons IN A ROW. That is not normal. You can take this with a grain of salt. But two cards with issues back to back is something that should be pointed out for potential buyers.
At this point, after multiple RMAs, I am probably going to have to go through XFX’s warranty process to get yet a third card and pray it works. When all is said and done, the money I saved getting this card when it was on sale will have gone to waste on paying the shipping charges for the multiple RMAs.
Pros: Nearly everything. This case comes with an amazing front I/O panel with just about everything you would ever need. The Newegg youtube review does a great job of showing everything off.
Cons: The only real problem I have is my power LED only seems to light up when it feels like it.READ FULL REVIEW
