Good graphics card, but it gets very hot.
Performance-wise? Excellent card. Thermals-wise? You'll want to steer clear. This thing maxes out at 85 degrees C with a mild overclock, with no less than five case fans to aid in the ventilation. Please note that I have a slightly different model than shown here, the HD 7870 LE/XT, which is based on the same Tahiti core used in the R9 280/280x, just at a lower clock.
Great value if buying used. Poor mix with the ml08b case. This card needs case fans and/or excellent vent locations to run cool and quietly.
