I have the same card and it really is a great graphics card and can handle pretty much anything you throw at it, of course dependent on the rest of your system,I have an Intel I5 3570K chip and 8 gig 1800 fast ram so its very capable. The only downside is that when the card hits 60% - 63% the fan goes on full and its very noisy. This is in a well ventilated case Corsair 300R Carbide with 5 Case fans, 2 Processor fans and of course a PSU fan. If the fan speed went up slowly with the heat it would be fine but it doesn't on the plus side it never gets over 65% because it runs at full speed and I cant hear it with my headphones on anyway. It may have a faulty diode or it may just be this way I'm not sure.

I'm planning on getting the Corsair H80i water cooler for the processor this Xmas and that should help by cooling the whole system down, my son has one and they are quite amazing for cooling the whole system a bit like air conditioning. I would have bought one sooner but just splashed out on a Samsung EVO 250g SSD which has got to be one of the best upgrades ever for £130 from Amazon.

Update: Wow this Cards has gone from £137 - £187 in a matter of hours which makes it about the most expensive 7870 you can buy. I know these will be in demand as they are no longer in production and the replacements have not received a very positive press but come on Amazon you cant justify a £50 increase.

Update I now have 2 of these in crossfire mode, the noisy one put in an RMA in to MSI and they sent me a replacement as it did have a faulty diode now the replacement card and the new card are super quiet and run brilliantly either in single or crossfire mode. BF4, Titanfall, Grid 2 etc run at full spec no problem. If you can get one for around the £140 mark like I did direct from Amazon they are well worth it.

this card has greatly exceeded my expectations as it successfully runs every game I throw at it at 1080p at 60 fps or higher with great temperatures and great over clock-ability. very happy with this purchase and it is likely that I will pick up another one to put in my system as does also support crossfire.

The card is a bit cooler than my old Asus 6950 1gb(which is now in my wife's pc:)). Idle(chrome, foobar) 26 degrees, load 67 degrees(furmark burn in test) with the fans at 73% which I found fairly quiet. Benchmarks avg fps:

Alien vs Predator: 71.5 fps- Asus 58.3 fps
Stalker CoP(sun shafts): 57.5- Asus 42fps
Sniper Elite: 33.8- Asus 24.5fps

My PC: AMD Phenom 965 3.4GHz+ Corsair H50 so not a new cpu, 8GB RAM, 1TB Samsung Spinpoint and Corsair TX 650, Antec 300.

This is a written version of my review, a video version is on youtube [...] and you can check out how well the game looks.

The MSI HD 7870 is a very good card for that price. It enables gamers to play all current games on the highest graphics. To give you an idea, the current top end graphics cards are just below a thousand pounds so the HD7870 does very well in tat price category. So for people that don't know much about graphics cards. Basically there are two major graphics card companies, AMD and Nvidia. The other companies like ASUS or MSI or Gigabyte are all makes like for example Dell, Zoostorm, Acer. They make the computer but they all use intel proccessors. The intel is basically AMD and Nvidia in this case. The make doesn't really matter that much, it is really the way the card looks e.t.c as long as they are a big company, you can trust them.

Nvidia or AMD?

Well, this is the toughest choice. Nvidia is more popular and there is no competition between Nvidia and Amd in the high end market so people often believes Nvidia is better than AMD. But if you are looking into cards below £300 then AMD can be a choice. Since Nvidia is more famous, it doesn't really bother about lowering the price or wining the price battle so naturally Amd will be better in the lower market. Of course, if you do come across a special offer the go ahead and get it.
So let's talk about the HD 7870. Depending on your budget, if you have trouble affording it, then go for the HD 7870 1GB because that can still play games on maximum graphics, I chose 7870, it gives better FPS (frames per second), which I am happy to spend the extra money on. The better the FPS, the more smooth the screen look.
