HIS IceQ X Turbo Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 H687QNT1G2M 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Pros: Decent performance for the price. (when it's not causing a black screen system lock up on certain games)

Cons: Black screens on certain games. It's a common problem with this particular card based on the number of people on gaming forums having the same exact problem on many different setups. I'd RMA but I highly doubt getting the same card will help at all.

The games that it black screens on most are Crysis 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Saints Row The Third, and Battlefield 3. Battlefield 3 is somewhat playable because you can get an hour or maybe a little more in between lockups but the other games I listed are basically unplayable on this card.
I strongly advise you to not get this card. I honestly don't see why they are still being sold with such a widespread problem and no solution.
