Great until it failed me.

Summary: This card has performed wonderfully since April 25, 2013. It ran almost every game on the highest settings in 1080p with at least 30 FPS or higher. I loved this card until today on June 28, 2014 the colors went away and I was left with a black and white screen while playing one of my games.
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.
Summary: This card only lasted a couple of weeks before it started whining and visual artifacts started appearing. A few days after the first artifacts appeared, the frequency of the visual artifacts increased, so I RMA'd the card.
AMD customer care is horrible / you wont get your promo games

Summary: I cannot get AMD customer care to email me back about a non working promo code. Their partner providers for game products (ubisoft) have horrible functionality and support, and it just ruins the experience of getting the card. The only reason I bought AMD was because of the 'never settle' promo...
Summary: *I apologize for giving this GPU a 1 star rating even this has nothing to do with how the card actually performs. After all I did order this knowing how good and how much value this GPU offers* I ordered this GPU twice as new from Amazon (as the seller) and both times you could tell that someone had...
Summary: After reading all the great reviews about this card, I did a little more research into other cards that fit my needs and ultimately chose the Sapphire HD7870 OC Ed when I was finished. FYI - This card was purchased from Amazon.com LLC.
Summary: I HAVE HAD TO RMA MY CARD 3 TIMES. THATS 4 CARDS INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL. THEY CRASH, BLACK SCREENS, LOCKUPS, BSOD, BUZZING. ALL OF THIS IS WELL DOCUMENTED BY MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS PROBLEM. THE ONE COMMON VARIABLE IN ALL THESE PROBLEMS BOILS DOWN TO THESE AMD GPU'S
Summary: It was running fine but then my screen went blank and there was a loud sound loop. It happens usually 1 hour after turning on my comp. I know this happened to many other people and not just to this model but to different manufactures.
Summary: I also am experiencing the black screen with sound loop crash. I have a 650 watt Antec PSU and have had no issues with my MSI 460. I have written to Sapphire to RMA, and may have to send it back to Amazon. I would not recommend this card.
