Definitely a killer for the price and add in Mantle and you are flying on top of the world. Even listed for a whooping 31% discount on Amazon right now http://amzn.to/1pRtuzS
if u got a good 22" monotor n need a good graphic card go with this card it just plays any game at full HD with max settings. If u need best performance n money is not concerned go with the newer n cooler NVIDIA GTX 760.
Radeon HD 7870 vs a gtx 680 Radeon has better price performance (I found an OC version for 178.98, sapphire GHz edition 2gb) GTX 680, is 31% better but also costs more 11% power (The cheapest ones are 300 euros or more
