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. I did everything imaginable to try and fix it and nothing worked. I didn't pay $250 dollars so that this card could fail me after 1 year of use. It only gets 1 star for 1 year of use.
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: 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. Fortunately, it failed within the 30 day warranty window and Amazon's RMA process was painless.
Summary: This card has some issues. Mine will not work in some games, it causes a system crash with the BSOD (blue screen of death) after an unpredictable but never very long time playing. In addition, the card load seems to fluctuate in furmark when it should running at 100% despite still being at low temperatures. If it was working it would be a great deal, but just be aware that you may have to return it and try again.
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 previously opened the product. The flaps that fold into the box had tears and the light film on the GPU was removed and whoever tried to put film back did a terrible job.
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. Now let me say that I was very disappointed from the start because first of all - Amazon would NOT ship out to me at my APO and therefore I had to send it through one of my family members in the states just to get it to me after the...
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.
Summary: Hatte das Teil als Ersatz für meine relativ neue Sapphire ATI Radeon Flex HD 7870 gekauft, die schon nach kurzer Zeit das Zeitliche gesegnet hatte. Nun ging dieses Teil in 2 Jahren 3 Mal kaputt! Ich bekam zwar Ersatz wegen Garantie – aber ist das noch Qualität? Vielleicht entdeckt ein Fachmann im Repaircafe eine eingebaute Sollbruchstelle! Ob ich noch Mal bei Graphikkarten zu ATI gehe – oder HIS, wie der jetzt heisst!
Summary: Die Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 (11199-16-20G) lief bei mir unter Last ohne Probleme: sehr gute Grafikleistung für diesen Preis, angenehm Leise, Maximale Temperatur im Furmark burn-in Test: 61°C , Der Lüfter kam nicht annähernd an die maximale Drehzahl. Aber im Desktopbetrieb machte die Karte Probleme, sobald sie im Idle-Modus war (GPU-load 0%) traten Grafikfehler auf.
