      Preforms well for under $100 60-75 FPS

      I have had this card for about 2+ years and it hasn't failed me yet!, I originally bought this card on eBay for about $85, while it was used, it still preforms amazing on all modern games. Every game i have played on this card gets about 60-75 FPS on games like Grand Theft Auto V on high to ultra settings. I still rather have this card then the GTX 1060 3GB, why spend $300+ on a card that performs as well as my current one.

      The Sapphire HD 7950 3GB Boost Edition, has a base clock of 850 Mhz and by a simple press of a button on the card, that clock gets boosted to 925 Mhz. I personally leave it at 850, since the card performs well enough as it is. Plus out of the 3GB of the GDDR5 memory most games hardly use 1.5 gigabytes, only a few games like Grand Theft Auto V use about 2.2 gigabytes of the 3 gigabytes of memory.

      Other than that, if you are interested in overclocking, then you won't be disappointed with this one, I got a bit curious with overclocking the card using MSI afterburner. With the OC button pressed, i got about 1225 Mhz before my computer started to become a bit unstable so I just toned it back down to 1215 Mhz. Tried a few games and it still preformed to it's best, I thought it would crash on games like Fallout 4. But honestly I don't think that I'm going to replace this card any time soon, in face I might add two more of these cards to my build and have them running crossfire. Might add a RGB LED backplate, as far as I know they are about $35 for each one. Anyways thank you for reading my review.
