Summary: You're not gonna see this maxing out Battlefield 4 or even Battlefield 3 (although it can run BF3 on ultra, just not well), but for the price, that's to be expected. You can get medium to high settings out of most modern games though, just don't expect it to do too well with the more next gen titles.
Probably better to get a 2gb card now adays, but still a great card

Summary: Just an inconic card. requires 150 watts of power and crossfires like a champ. dollar for dollar this was the best gaming GPU from 2011-2012. Now its been replaced by the 7870 2gb. There is a 2gb version of this card, (this isnt it), that is as timeless as the next gen 7870 2gb.
Summary: took awhile to write this review but i have to say that this is one hell of a card, running 2 6870 in crossfire mode on an eyefinity 3 screen set up running on a Asus FormulaV board with no problems at all highly recommend this card!!
Summary: Great card, XFX does great as always. I had two of them. OC'd to 950/1075. Great performance for the price. Excellent experience. Recommended for a starter, or someone looking to upgrade their starter build.
Summary: Excellent product! With that video card I'm enjoying the lastest games with high graphics! I was hoping to actualice my entire computer but after installing the radeon HD 6870 I decided to not actualice my processor, motherboard and RAM yet because with my actual components the performance is excellent!
Summary: This added a whole lot of life to my late 2008 Mac Pro desktop. Worked perfect in osx 10.8 without extra drivers except that you don't get a boot-up screen. System report shows "AMD Radeon HD 6xxx 1024 MB".
Though it is now last-gen, this is still the best bang for the buck you'll ever find.

Summary: First, the Pros: -1080P gaming at high settings on all games (between 35-55FPS) -VERY quiet under load -decent temperatures. So long as your case has adequate ventilation, you'll be fine. -Overclocking. This thing overclocks like a friggin champ. I took the clocks up to 1120/1250, where it was completely stable under furmark for ~20 hours. It could go all the way up to 1150/1300, but there would be artifacting, and it would crash after ~5 minutes using furmark.
