Good deal, buyer needs to be aware that this card has overheating issues at default settings. You must override the max fan speed of 65%,and increase. If you don't, you'll have artifacts, black screens and crashes.
7870 is a great card, but this one is kind of risky.

You can find this card discussion, on a previous deal, here

Perhaps that was true of a previous revision but this one has presented me no such problems. I bought the card from the post you quoted and have not had a single problem with it, and wholeheartedly recommend it. It is a beast.

The reviews on Newegg for this version indicate it hasn't been fixed. link-sauce [newegg.com]

this price has been the same for awhile and they usually give you a free game... I'd wait until you get a decent free game

then roll the dice and hope you get a good card... i hear it's 50/50.
