Summary: I bought this card about a year ago and get a black screen within a few hours of playing certain games. Sometimes, the Windows Aero theme will also crap out. Do yourself a favor and don't buy this card--go with something more reliable.
Summary: Packaged nicely, easy to install, disc setup was quick and easy as well. It's 9" long but had plenty of room on my gigabyte board to handle it. Very quiet and works great! Be sure to have 500W+ PSU, preferrably modular to hook up (2) 6-pin power to this board.
Summary: I recently build a new computer and this GPU has served me great! It does run Guild Wars 2 and all other games I've tried to play all on highest graphics settings without lagg. I highly recommend Sapphire because it stays cool and is extremely silent!!
Summary: I purchased the Sapphire 7870 seven weeks ago for use in my new computer build. The primary uses for my new computer/graphics card were 3d Architectural modelling (in AutoCad) and gaming (Fallout 3, Oblivion, etc). The computer build was successful without any hardware or driver problems.

23 May 2012
Summary: This is my first Sapphire product. So far has been great. I've been playing with the card for more than a month now. Pros: +Stays cool +Silent +2GB VRAM +Great OC headroom +Consume less power than equivalent last generation cards +Bunch of accesories Cons: -A little bit pricey -$350- (wait a month...
Summary: the 7870 is a great card, but the 7870 OC is only 10 dollars more of course if its not in the budget, get this one, but come on the 7870 IS EPIC the 7870 is like a BLT with extra bacon, a 7870 OC is a BLT with even more bacon lol.
Summary: Although this review is for the "OC" edition of this card, I minus well post this to spread the good news about this card. Sapphire HD7870 Ghz OC Edition found here: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-11199-03-20G/dp/B007JCNOY6/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top...
