Summary: This video card is perfect for mid range gaming and it is fully capable of any game out there right now. I bought this second one for a Crossfire setup and I love it. I got them both for a steal on Amazon and I highly recommend them to any person interested in gaming.
Very good card -- awesome with latest ATI Video Drivers released Nov '13!

Summary: Good overall card. Allows me to crank some games up to higher level than I've been able to with the 7750 card. I do notice when its cranking away in Total War Rome 2 it gets pretty hot in my desk area containing my tower. No alarms yet just saying I notice the heat a tad more. The price on this card last month was on point and great value. For WoW, it works amazing well with very high settings.
Summary: I run these cards in crossfire and find that they can run any game thrown at it... even on ultra settings. However, don't be expecting to max out most games out despite what you read. Once you start enabling the special rendering effects and tesselation, your system is gonna take a hit. Even in crossfire these cards aren't the powerhouse I was expecting. They are really good at running 1080p displays around 50-70fps.
Summary: This card was to replace a GTX 660, which both replaced a HD 5850. The 5850 pushed really well and both GTX 660 and HD 7870 obviously outperformed it. Both cards gave about the same FPS average with the games I play. My computer is connected to a 32" LG LCD tv via HDMI. The GTX 660 had the anaglyph/stereotropic 3d capability. Colours are clean and rich. Small text are clear and easy to read. Not much heat and fan is pretty much silent.
Summary: I needed to beef up my graphics card to play some of the newer games. This card definitely gets you there for a very reasonable price but it gets really loud when the graphics get intense. Turn up the volume on the game and it's not a problem.
