Summary: I use this card for Distributed Computing projects which require good FP64 (aka double-precision floating point) capability. The 7870 XT has a variant of the Tahiti chip unlike other 7870s which use the Pitcairn chip. Tahiti has much better FP64 capability than does Pitcairn. If you plan to use the card in a similar manner, the 7870 XT is a good deal.
Summary: After a number of less-than-heartening experiences with AMD's Radeon products on Linux, I had largely given up on using them. I am glad that I tried one more time: this is quite a nice card, and it works great with Linux.
Summary: I got it pretty cheaply from a sale with Prime shipping. Didn't get a faulty one, packaging was good and it works like a charm. I mean if your rig is not a serious gaming rig, this works fine. I was playing Tomb Raider, Saint Row 4 and Bioshock Infinite, the card stays up fine with high (not ultra high) settings. Combining this card with some decent CPU, and you have a really affordable rig with above the standard performance.
Summary: I picked this because it had the best passmark score/dollar in the class of cards I was shopping. Well worth the money spent. Can play Crysis 3 with full-specs and am getting roughly 310 MH/s in crypto-coin mining. Worth the money when I'm gaming and is slowly paying itself off by mining. Good buy all around.
Summary: Awesome product and whisper quiet. I have my computer on top of my desk and I hardly hear it while surfing the web or watching a movie. Plays all games I have on High to Ultra graphics; I couldn't ask for more.
Summary: Pro: It works fine great detail in game (when it's working fine) Con: Stop working after 2 month. It seems working under idle condition, core speed at 300mhz. it will have black scream under load, windows will give a warning graphic card stop working. As now, trying send back hopefully warranty can get it fix.
Summary: It's been two months, very happy with the product so far. I bought this at a discount because the item supposedly had a dented box that was not up to amazon quality for shipping. Product was great, very happy no issues encountered with hardware.
