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. It does come with (2) 6-pin adaptors for old style plug-ins. I use this card with AMD FX8750 "Bull dozer" CPU and 16 Gb of DDR3-1680 RAM.
Summary: Bought a pair on Dec 26th and could not be happier. Upgrading from a 5970, Crossfire 7870's have been nothing short of amazing. These run cooler, consume less power and kick the crap out of my 5970. They do run a bit warm under load. My slot spacing is tight so cards are choked for air. Waterblocks are on order. No driver or crossfire issues, using 31.1 drivers and rock solid. 200+ frames in FarCry 3 If your looking for max frames without draining the wallet ..
Summary: Lots of people on a site that starts with new said these cards were horrible, they say that the card overheated,crashed and alltogther this is bad card. Seems like that site just had bad stock because my card is fine.That aside NCIX said this card has a 1200mhz oc it doesn't the card is clocked at 1Ghz.This card runs cool (under 65C) and chucks out around 50-60 FPS whatever game I play.I bought this card on a suprise special for $200, just to think one year ago a card...
Pros: Queit,Cool,High Framerates,Bought at a great Price!
Summary: With the amount of power this thing has you expect max FPS without tweaking on maximum settings on any game, but across a wide selection of games and a variety of settings the frame rate varies heavily.
Summary: I stress tested this card out of the box, it never got above 68c. The cooler on this is amazing, and the fans are the quietest I've ever had. Throwing Metro on ultra, Far Cry 3 on ultra, or any other game I own, this card throws out a solid 50 fps+ at all times.
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!! Also, if you're considering OC you're GPU without the program the higher priced OC edition comes with. Then this is you're choice!
Summary: Pros: *Quiet *Cool (Temprature) *Does not Exceed 170 Watt (Power Usage) which is REALLY good for this massive card. *Awesome design (My opinion) *Supports Battlefield 3 at 60 FPS (At ULTRA Settings), it supports any other game at 60+ Frames per Second (FPS), for people that don't know a good graphics card would support 30 FPS, this one does double of that. Con: *I would recommend the price to be about $50 cheaper.
