Oh dear, what an uneven card.

Summary: For the last couple of years I've been running a GTX 460, and up until recently it was a mostly acceptable card. It can run a lot of games at medium or high settings in 720p without too much trouble, and I was planning to wait a little while longer to upgrade the card. That is until the driver issues started. When NVIDIA released their 319.XX driver series, older Fermi cards began to struggle.
Summary: Finally replaced my HD4850 with this. It's much smaller, runs cooler, and manages to max BF3 and Metro 2033. It's nice to get back into gaming. Modeling performance is also improved. Running this on an older Phenom II 960T @ 4GHz. Works wonderfully. UPDATE: Due to 4myrebate scamming me out of my $15 rebate, I'm removing 3 stars from my rating.
Summary: I had a gtx 280 that I bought back in 2008, last week it died (R.I.P), at first I was going to buy whatever geforce card that were around 250 usd. After reading a little, I decided to go the ati route, as on benchmarks it was better bang for the buck. While reading people also recommended the 7870 tahiti series as it's close to the 7900 serie at a good price point. So I got this one and was happy about it.
Summary: I purchased this card for a new PC I built from scratch. Specs on my gaming rig are thus: ASUS P8Z77 Pro board Core i7 2600k Sapphire Radeon 7870 OC 2GB 16 GB RAM Corsair Vengeance black Samsung 830 128GB SSD (system + only major apps) Seagate Barracuda 2 TB 7200 RPM HDD Cooler Master TPC-812 heat sync Cooler Master HAF-X Blue Edition (newegg exclusive) + all fans for all fan slots Cooler Master silent pro gold 1000W power supply Sony DVD burner Win 7 64-bit Only running...
Summary: I had nothing but problems with this card. It started with BSOD's while web browsing. It appears to have been an AMD driver issue which was fixed by using 3rd party uninstallers (AMD's uninstaller doesn't work well) and reinstalling CCC. Then I started experience random system freezes while gaming that required a reboot. For me, this happened only in Skyrim and Shogun 2. Apparently Tera and other games also have problems.
Summary: Its a good card no doubt about that reaching very high frames, but my screen keeps saying no signal whilst playing a game called the witcher 2 and i can't get rid of this. I am going to keep that last sentence but after seeing threads on Toms hardware i have found out there is a major error with this card. Buzzing noises, fan speeds going really fast and generally being a VERY loud computer.
Summary: Die Grafikkarte wurde ohne das dafür nötige Stromanschlußkabel geliefert, dass aber zum Betrieb unbedingt nötig ist. Meiner Bitte um Nachlieferung wurde nicht entsprochen mit der Begründung,dass das Kabel nicht zum Lieferumfang gehört. Auch eine Nachlieferung auf Rechnung wäre nicht möglich. Ärgerlich ist das ich nunmehr zuerst eruieren mußte, welcher Kabeltyp nötig ist.
Summary: Erst mal Amazon,erste Sahne!!! Karte um 17 Uhr bestellt und am nächsten Tag um 13 Uhr war sie schon in meiner Hand.einfach top Danke. Nun zur Karte,schnell und sehr leise,in meinem Thermaltake Big Tower ist die Karte absolut nicht zu hören auch nicht unter volllast!
