Great when it works.

Summary: This card is an absolute beast at pumping out graphics, and at a great price with a lot of room to over clock. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, mine regularly refuses to display anything on my screen when I turn on my computer. This can be solved by unplugging the card, then reinserting it, but it is quite annoying to half disassemble my rig every time I want to boot.
Summary: The card works fine but I noticed the idling temp is pretty high at 50 degrees. My case is a fairly good one (Corsair Carbide 500R) with decent ventilation. With its core over-clocked to 1200 ghz, it idles at over 65 degrees which is way high than I expected. All reviews I have read online indicate it should be at 30+ degree range so I am a little concerned about that.
Summary: Let me start out by saying that I have purchased this item from Amazon, but I am going to exchange it for another one because this card is so good. I am getting a lot of BSODs and have been posting on forums to try to figure out what is going on. I went so far as to reformat my computer and I am still getting the blue screens. This card is fast and quiet. Let me emphasize how quiet it is...you never hear it over your normal PC fans.
Summary: Lasted about a month before it started causing all sorts of problems with Windows: blackouts, blue screens, etc. Not the coolest card either. Decent performance in games, but the drivers are the worst part about this card: really buggy and I assume is the same across most AMD cards. Swapped it for a GTX 660, it runs cooler, performs better and drivers are much better.

Summary: great card very happy, fantastic service from amazon as always. runs all my games with ease, crysis 3 looks amazing. have been useing the card for month now & it has started to crash my pc alot, have done some research & the card has got some faults so i have returned the card for a refund.
Summary: Hastily decided to buy this card as it is the cheapest out of the range and Sapphire are well known. Having received this card I installed it in no time and had it running fairly quickly without any problems. The Sapphire 7870 ran pretty well on all games at high settings BUT with a major problem! The first problem I encountered was whilst playing dead island.
Summary: Die Grafikkarte war ansich schön leise und wie ich in den wenigen Stunden die sie funktionierte auch festellen konnte sehr leistungsstark. Leider habe ich die Grafikkarte aus einer Fehlerhaftenproduktionsreihe bekommen weshalb sie schon am 2 Tag bluescreens und andere Grafikfehler verursachte.
Summary: Den Artikel habe ich in gewohnt schneller und zuverlässiger Lieferung von Amazon bekommen. Ich nutze schon jahrelang ATI Karten und somit war weder der Einbau, noch die Inbetriebnahme ein Problem. Die Vorgängerin in meinem Hauptrechner war eine ATI HD6870, die ich nun dank der neuen Karte in den Zweitrechner verpflanzt habe. Also fix noch den neuesten Treiber drauf und ab gehts zur Inbetriebnahme.
