Pros: Excellent and steady framerates during extended play, can be found for very reasonable price, nice cooler

Cons: Links to drivers on Sapphire website have wrong Catalyst link.

I found this card for ~240 bucks on Amazon bundled with the new Tomb Raider and Bioshock: Infinite. The card alone is a great bargain, provided that you can find it. I saw it on sale on TigerDirect for 245 before MIR, and within a few hours when I was able to place the order, the cards were all sold out. I was amazed at how quickly they sold out and pounced on the ability to purchase it through Amazon while supplies lasted. The dual fan cooler actually performs pretty admirably and remains semi-quiet during heavy load. So far I've played WoW, Tomb Raider, L4D2, and Bioshock: Infinite, as well as have run several benchmarks with this card. It always comes out with me smiling. For the price/performance I am massively satisfied with my purchase and would definitely recommend this card to anyone looking for good performance on an affordable card. My only complaint, not really a complaint more of a minor annoyance, was that my drivers were corrupted and I couldn't find the disk to reinstall them. The Sapphire website has you download the 13.1 to update drivers, but it doesn't come with 7870 XT as part of the package. You need 13.3 beta to install drivers. Great performing card on a wallet happy budget.
