I purchased this from Micro Center, but will soon be purchasing a second one from Amazon for a CrossFire setup.

The first thing you need to know is that this is widely regarded as the best model of the 7870. Gigabyte's cooling system is fantastic and the card comes overclocked, at 1100MHz / 1200MHz. The fan system is very quiet, unless you manually bump it up to 70% or higher, which makes it relatively loud. The auto fan control has never gone this high for me, even with the card sitting at 70c.

But what I'd like to focus on is further overclocking of this card, which is very easily tweaked.

Using MSI Afterburner, I was able to get this card stable at 1175Mhz / 1450Mhz, by bumping the voltage to 1299 and putting the power limit at +20%. Testing in FurMark at 1920x1080 on the factory settings ran between 33.3 and 33.6 FPS, and capped around 60 degrees Celsius. After my overclock, it ran at 43.2 to 43.8 FPS, around a whopping 30% increase. Keep in mind that this will not always directly translate to 30% better FPS in games, but it was impressive, regardless. Overclocked temps hit about 70 Celsius, well within safety limits (I'd cut it off at 80, but it should be safe up to 85-90). I didn't even put the fan on manual control, so my card still stays silent.

Now if that overclocking stuff sounded complicated to you, trust me when I say it isn't. You simply download and install MSI Afterburner, change a simple checkbox under settings to unlock voltage tweaking, and slide a few bars. If your case is well ventilated, I would recommend trying it if you are comfortable doing so. You may not see the exact same results I did, so run FurMark or MSI Kombustor for a while to test stability and temps.

Intro | I bought this card after about a month or so maybe longer of pure in-depth research, comparing other various video cards and their respective brands by both AMD and Nvidia in the Mid to High class range, i bought my custom brand new rig without a video card because i wanted this one in the end ultimately for very specific reasons that i'll get to later.

Im not going to go into detail about my personal specs on my PC since there is really no need and the purpose of this review is to give credit where it is due and to also help other customers and new PC gamer's building their very first gaming PC like i did.

I'll break it down to make it as simple as possible to understand and get straight to the point.

*Price
At the time i purchased this card, in december 2012 it was $259.99, after finally making my choice to go through with this after nearly a month of planning and research, it was certainly my best choice that i have made in a long time when it comes to being on a extremely tight budget which most of us middle-class average people are. Not to long after i bought the card though, it quickly went out-of-stock as you can clearly see with the recent influx of reviews, 90% of which are very positive reviews mind you, lots of happy customers and *cough* gamers *cough* here. Anyway, the price sky-rocketed to $360 after the demand was noted by Amazon.com/Gigabyte which is the regular price, but slowly trickled down to the current price as of the date of this review 1/24/2013 at $249.99, $10 cheaper than what i paid which is very good for those of you still sitting on that shaky fence we all know too well.

Now for the breakdown of Pros....... these are facts from my personal experiences with this A Class Card.

Folks this is a full size card.
If you have a small computer case, you better check to see if it will fit.
I held on to my old HD5750 for years because it was a good card for most gaming.
It only started to become a "slow" card when I upgraded to 1080p gaming with stereo 3D.
This card was just too slow. I needed something roughly twice as fast.
The HD7870 is ideal. Price point at about $250 it is not CHEAP; but it really cranks out the performance without having to spend $300+ on a higher end card. I don't plan to game beyond single monitor 1080p gaming so this was the ideal card.
I can max settings on all games and have 30+fps frame rates.
This is a "preformance" card in a sense; it has vapor chamber cooling and 3 fans. When pushed the fans are a bit loud. But my system is a overclocked AMD FX and the fans on it are loud anyway. So when people complain "the fans are loud" that is kind of like saying "the exhaust is loud on my Corvette when I put my foot to the floor". Well DUHHHH.

Never could get the bundled software to work right. No problem, catalyst 12.6 works fine. I am using a AMD 890fx system. replaced a gtx 460 which was good, this is betterer and cooler. could not play some games until I discovered physix system driver for non nvidia gpus. Tried it my old 790GX system, surprise, it worked very good. When I am not running anything that requires cpu time I get a constant 60 frames. Maxes all settings on most games @1080p(1920x1080). It will overclock easily 10-12% but it not needed. Good card for single monitor gaming. 3 months without a problem.
