Summary: I bought it used so for me the Price to Performance has been excellent. I haven't overclocked it but haven't needed to and it's played my games on high settings. It does seem to get hot when playing a game on three screens and it has a higher power consumption than some equivalent newer cards. Also, the single fan can get loud.
Summary: I bought this Power Color Myst Edition (aka Radeon 7870 XT). It is used (look as new) It run very great. I did test it on Ungine Heaven 4.0 and it got min FPS at 9.0 and Max at 152 and Avg fps at about 78.5. It sound lot better than my Radeon R9 270. It is more powerful than orginal 7870 GHz Edition and R9 270. It did performance very well and very close to Radeon 7950. So far no problem with it.
Summary: The PowerColor PCS HD7860 Myst is a great value card. While not top of the line, you can get really good performance out of it. I threw a lot of the latest games on high performance settings and it works without complains. Recommended.
Summary: This is the best value you can found out there(I've paid 180 bucks). The cons are: A bit noisy and hot GPU so I would recommend a good PSU and cool case for it. Running BF4 on Ultra with no lags so it's fully meeting my expectations.
Summary: This card is kind of large, but it works really well for the price. It can play Final Fantasy XIV ARR so smoothly on maximum settings, as well as any other game I've tried. For the price, I really don't think you will find a better card.
Summary: fantastic powercolor video card. Works great plays any game I throw a it on high setings, and a great buy for anyone looking to play at a good resoluion. I have heard about some of them running hot but i haven't had that problem mine usually runs idle at 32C - 35C and about 65C under regular gaming load so pretty good temps, I highly recommend this video card.
Great card that brings the fight to the 7950 when overclocked.

Summary: Ahh the Myst Edition Card. Things of Note: First off, this is NOT a Pitcairn based board, it is a Tahiti. Basically a chopped down 7950, physically partitioned off, you wont be flashing the BIOS to get 7950 power, sorry guys! 2nd.) You can't use Radeon HD 78** series cards based on Pitcairn to Crossfire with this thing, though i have seen on various tech sites that the Myst Edition can be Crossfired with 7950's if you tweak it enough to avoid micro stuttering.
