XFX Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 HD-687A-ZHFC 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: This card was part of my first build 2 years ago.

With tweaks to game settings and slight overclocking I was able to get through 2013. Played games like far cry 3, tomb raider, Bioshock infinite and battlefield 4 at 60fps with mostly high-ultra settings on a 1920x1080 display. (just disable the fluff like draw distance and AA) -- and maxing out anything that wasn't as taxing (this card does very well with dx9 games) like minecraft, dota 2, street fighter 4 to name a few. I am so satisfied with the value I have gotten out of this card that I am upgrading to XFX' r9 280x to knock the games I've had to accommodate out of the park. And no, I wasn't paid! Never over 61c underload with proper airflow.

Cons: Gets pretty loud under load.

Other Thoughts: It's a retired card, but it should only run you like $70 these days if you can find it.
