Default Just bought a new graphics card, what are your thoughts?

Hey,
Just purchased a Sapphire HD 7870 OC 2gb graphics card (LINK)

This card should fulfill my needs (Hopefully)
So what are your thoughts on it, seems pretty good to me.

That's a good video card for the price. I've heard about some people having bad problems with no drivers being available but other people haven't had any problems with drivers whatsoever. Be sure to tell us what your experience with it is.

7870 is a pretty solid card. I think what Veraster means is, AMD drivers suck lol.
