Firstly I have to say that this is a phenomenal card. After doing much research I concluded that the hd 7870 was the best card to get right now for price/performance ratio. For around $230-$240 this card with the 12.11 drivers just released is as fast as a stock 7950 (800mhz), and is about even with a gtx 660ti ($300).
The reason the sapphire card is the best of the 7870s is because of its incredible cooling. Most card manufacturers advertise great cooling, such as xfx ghost technology, asus dcu2, msi twin frozr 3 and 4 and also power color pcs+, but if you look at some online reviews, their promises don't deliver. All of the cards I just mentioned have their gaming load in the mid to high 70's C, which is only average, and actually worse than the reference 7870. The only 2 cards in my opinion which cool well for the 7870 are the sapphire and the gigabyte windforce 3 versions. They both keep their cards in the mid to high 50's C for gaming, which is incredible and a very...
Pros: + Can handle every game thrown at it and still be able to run at a decent FPS, even at stock. + Able to have a stable overclock to 1250/1450. + Nice and quiet. + Comes with lots of extra cables and adapters.
Cons: - Updated version of Sapphire TrixX isn't out yet so sometimes the OC for it glitches out.
Temps are around 26C at idle and around 48C at full load. Do I have any buyers remorse with the Keplar cards coming out?? Hell nah!! I'm perfectly happy with the performance of this card!!
Let me start out by saying that I have purchased this item from Amazon, but I am going to exchange it for another one because this card is so good. I am getting a lot of BSODs and have been posting on forums to try to figure out what is going on. I went so far as to reformat my computer and I am still getting the blue screens.
This card is fast and quiet. Let me emphasize how quiet it is...you never hear it over your normal PC fans. Maybe I have not played it long enough or OCed it enough to really make the temps high, but still it's pretty amazing that it's so quiet. My 5870 sounded like a jet taking off and my 6870 was a little better, but this thing outstanding as far as noise goes. As far as performance goes, it handles pretty much anything you throw at it. I haven't spent time overclocking to card to see how far I can take it because of my BSODs, but I heard from everyone that it can OC up too 100mHz over what the factory overclock is without any cooling. I can...
