Depends on the game. Obviously it cant handle latest and greatest games with everything crancked up at 1440p. But most games should still be very playable. May i as what games are you asking about specifically?
At the moment I mostly play at CS:GO (I can easily run it at ~200 fps for the moment), Borderlands 2, The Wicher 2 and some Indie games.

And I wait for The Witcher 3 wheee.gif
at this moment I think my 7870 XT will died rolleyes.gif

Or is better just buy R9 270X?

?? why not just get a 280x that's the current best bang for the buck.. thumb.gif

270x is essentially a 7870 clock to near maximum.. clock for clock R 270x is 10-15% slower than 7870xt (tahiti le)

I went with a 7870xt from a 7850 going 1080p to 1440p.
(50% more shaders for 77% more pixels)

I play bf4 mostly. I aim for 110 fps (Qnix 2710 oc to 110hz).
With every settings on "low" or "off" except texture and drawing distance on "ultra": i get 85-110 fps, typically 95.
The perfect smoothness is worth the loss of effects and I can see my opponents better.

In my opinion, a cheap 7870xt is good for waiting the next generation, even at 1440p.

I already have the 7870 XT, but I plan to buy a 1440p monitor.

This one.

EDIT : Thanks for comments smile.gif

Is it safe to use CLU on a Powercolor 7870 Myst?

The stock thermal paste on my gpu is wearing out so I'm wondering if I can replace it with that.

CLU?, you can replace the thermal paste, in fact I think it´s almost necesary due the high temps it can reach

Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra, I was just asking because apparently it's not safe to have it in contact of Aluminum. I'm just being careful/paranoid about putting it because of that.

And yeah, the temps were fine for a few months with the stock thermal paste but now the temps are getting a little too high, especially with how loud the fan has to get to keep it cool.

Yeah, i've heard similar about CLU. I'd stick to Gelid and Noctua stuff. hardocp likes the Noctua NT-H1 a lot. Apparently they bought it when it was available in a small tub and dirt cheap. It spreads well and never dries/cures, so it works the same after a year as it does on initial application.

Gelid GC Extreme, according to Tom's, gives the best temps outside liquidmetals.

I'm in the process of finding a local buyer for my rig, and i'm contemplating doing the same thing to my XT (my clocks drop and temps go up) before I let it go. Tell us how it all works out!

Applied CLU to the die after a friend of mine told me to man up and do it, everything worked out pretty well. I used to get 70 C with the fan speed up to 70% (which is incredibly loud might I add). After applying the CLU I got 57~ C max with 57% fan speed, so I think that's a pretty major temperature difference.

I thought I'd might as well do a quick small overclock with Afterburner (1028 core/1550 memory) and now it maxes up to 60~ C max with 60% fan speed. I'll probably see how far I can push the card with overclocks, although with how loud it is I don't see myself going too far with it.

Hi.I am new to forums and im dont good with english but sorry for that.So i buyed second hand VTX3D 7870 Tahiti Le black edition and i have a little problem.The VRM temperature is too High.When i start Furmark for 1-2 minutes they go to 90 degrees and i stop the program for not make problems for card.The original fan is removed and on the original radiator is 2 Fans.
