Well, I haven't seen a club for this yet, if there is already one please tell me. If you would like to join just post a picture of your card, a GPU-Z screenshot, or an invoice/receipt for your card.

The 7850/7870 are nice little cards for the more budget minded gamer.
Especially when prices will come down a bit these cards will be the sweet spot for alot of gamers IMO.

Here are some reviews:

The 7850 specs:

Memory: 2GB GDDR5
Memory interface: 256-bit
GPU clock speed: 860MHz
Memory speed: 1.20GHz
Architecture: 1,024 stream processors
CF connectors: 1
PCI-E power: 1x 6-pin
Max power draw: 150W
Power Phases: 4
MSRP: £190 - $250

The 7870 specs:

Memory: 2GB GDDR5
Memory interface: 256-bit
GPU clock speed: 1000MHz
Memory speed: 1.20GHz
Architecture: 1,280 stream processors
CF connector: 1
PCI-E power: 2x 6-pin
Max power draw: 225W
Power Phases: 5
Card lenght: 242mm
MSRP: £260 - $350

Both cards take up 2 slots in your case.



Most of the 7850/7870 cards clock to Catalyst Overdrive max settings without any additional voltage.
To get your card higher you need MSI Afterburner 2.2.0, Asus GPU Tweak or Sapphire Trixx

You can get MSI Afterburner here
Asus GPU Tweak here
And Sapphire Trixx here

The best driver to use with these cards is probably Catalyst 12.8
You can get the 12.8 drivers here
You can also find the Beta on that page. Do NOT install the Catalyst 12.11/12.12/13.1 drivers if you are running [email protected] on your Radeon card

You can all post your results and findings about the 7850/7870 here to share with our community.
You can also post all your questions about the 7850/7870 here for the community to anwser.

If anything needs to be added and/or changed to this first post then please say so here or send me a PM
Please do not PM about joining unless you have PMd AuraNova and have gotten no response.

***THE OFFICIAL***
***AMD RADEON HD 7800 SERIES CLUB***
333

To join the club:
All you have to do is PM me a picture of your card(s), a full screenshot of any overclocks you may have, and a GPU-Z link with your user name on it. If you post it on the thread, PM me to the post. As of right now, these are the current regulations. Rules may change from time to time until something is fully established. THAT DOES NOT MEAN those who are already in the club will have to reprove themselves. You're grandfathered in! thumb.gif

If you PM me and don't hear from me right away, chances are that I can't get to it at that moment. I will do so as soon as I possibly can. Usually within the week. DO NOT PM ANYONE ELSE ABOUT JOINING. This list will always be updated by me, unless I decide to pass it to someone else.

kabj06 is the information epicenter and co-lead for the club. Most technical questions can be answered by him. If not, plenty of other members will be willing to help you out.

Members:
Members are in order of their highest core clocks, then by memory clocks.


Let me know if there's anything else you all want me to add to the chart.

Latest Drivers:
Keep things up to date with the latest Catalyst drivers:
Drivers for 64 bit Windows Vista/7

Unleash the Beast:
Now that you have your card, as awesome as it is stock, squeeze what you can out of it and even beat a 7950! Now, if you want want to use the Catalyst Control Center that comes with your drivers download, you can use these alternative programs:
MSI Afterburner
ASUS GPU Tweak
Radeon BIOS Editor (For advanced users. Has NOT been updated for 7xxx series cards yet.)

Tools for Monitoring:
To make sure the card, as well as your overclocks run smooth, here are some programs to help assist you in doing so:
GPU-Z

Enjoy your stay!
Feel free to ask any questions about the 7800 series and we'll answer them as best as we can. We can always learn from one another too.

Share any benchmarks, overclocks, or projects you have done, or are planning to do. That would give inspiration for others to do the same.

Personally, MSI. I've never had a problem with them, ever. Not to say that others haven't had issues with them either.

MSI usually offers a 3 years warranty and is really good about RMAs and such. Even so, 3 years is more than enough for a video card seeing as people usually upgrade roughly after 2 years.

People will also stick to Gigabyte as well.

I got the Sapphire HD7850 on Thurs and it's a very nice card. The 7870 would of been nicer but my wallet didn't agree with me.

The HD 7800 series came at just before the time the Nvidia GTX 680 was on the verge of being released. So almost all of the focus was on that card and it's rumored benchmarks compared to the HD 7970. Soon after the relase of that card, a ton of "HD 7970 vs GTX 680" threads popped up all over the place. This put the 7800 series on the backburner and its release fell on quite a few deaf ears. One of the other main reasons is its price point, I think. in any event, I do plan to get an HD 7870 very soon (this week actually). I hope in the future, more people consider these cards. Probably once the price comes down a bit, more people will buy into it.

In the meantime, I have enhanced this "club" of sorts to include a spreadsheet on the front page. I was the first response in the thread, so it was an easy spot to garner attention without having outside or inside members to go to another page. Also, I have always wanted to do a spreadsheet for a thread. biggrin.gif If there are any questions or columns you want me to add to the list, or if you have a 78xx card and want to be added, let me or kabj06 know. I guess we can all try to make something of a club here, but I doubt it'll take off like the 7900 series and GTX 680 clubs have. I really think the 7850 and 7870 are great cards based on the reviews I read. I hope they come down in price a bit more to entice people a bit more.

Only the price point of the 7870 is stopping me from getting one. $270-300 is the maximum i could pay for this card.
