Do those DJ queens stay very cool with just the 1 fan?

Don't base a card on what games come with it, like If you buy a card from newegg that includes games and the card goes bad, they can charge or deduct for the games (I fully assume MSRP value).
Could you try and run Valley Benchmark for me with your 7870? I'm curious about how well your card actually does in Extreme HD both in score and temps.
BF4 is like 50$ atm by the way,can find places for 40-45$ too.
Not sure on cooling on them.
After having 3 different XFX cards, that had heat issues, I vowed to pay for the additional cooling (2x 780 lightning and 270x hawk is what I'm using).

Basically runs your GPU at 100% stressing it giving you a score at the end.
Any graphical issues shows you have clock issues, crashes means bad clock.
I'm gonna down-clock my 270x to 1150core and 1400 memory and compare it yours.
rough estimate if it's worth getting a 270x.

At 1080p 2gb are enough as far you dont use modded graphics(skyrim-like) or in the future the games would become more gpu demanding and would need more than 2gb on ultra/maximum settings,

Basically the hd 7870 crossfire performs like gtx titan(when is not running out of vram) and this deppenda on the game to see better or worse performance with crossfire than a single card
