i5-3470 @60Ghz
Sapphire HD 7870 XT 2GB DDR5
4 GB Ram 1333Mhz
Windows 7 32 bit

i wonder what games my graphic card won't be able to run it at Max with 1080p ? and how much do you think this card will last

The newest (next gen) ones such as BF4 and AC4, they require a pretty hefty amount of power to max out (though you'll come pretty close, my GTX 670 can run BF4 on Ultra w/o MSAA at smooth framerates)

I'll say your card will last about 2 years if you want to run games at high/near max, but for absolutely max out everything graphics, your card is already a bit behind

well, don't be discouraged, I plan on sticking to my current GTX 670 for all the newer games coming out like Watch Dogs, Witcher 3, and DA Inquisition.

overclocking your GPU may make a small but noticable difference, since it uses the same microprocessor as an HD 7950/7970 (the Tahiti GPUs) it should be able to overclock pretty well. Watch your temperatures though.

Keep in mind that even if you can't run it at desired levels at launch, optimization and driver updates can only make your gaming experience better, a few months into the release of a game and you might be able to play these newer titles at a tweaked Ultra!

thank you very much for your help.. one last question about the Temps. at the beginning my GPU temps reaches to 68 Max. in winter when playing heavy games ..and these days it reaches to 71 Max. with auto fan speed at 54% max., and the summer hasn't started yet..should i be worried?

no not really, graphics cards usually have really high safe temperatures unlike CPUs, for both AMD and Nvidia cards the max safe temperatures is around 95C, which means you can run it into the 80s without worrying too much, my GTX 670 maxes out at around 85C and I'm still not worrying too much about it, in a month or so I'm gonna clean it up though.

I have a sapphire HD 7870 pre OC edition and i overclocked the core myself to 1200 MHZ and the memory at 1300 MHZ. I am able to max out battlefield 4, COD ghosts and metro last light, which are all very graphic intensive games (ghosts is graphics intensive-ish) running on 1920x1080 and never once seen it hit under 55-60 fps. (Except those darn seldom lag spikes.) And I also have Crysis 3 maxed which is said to be the most graphics intensive game so far. I run it at 45-55 fps. And as far as game debate displays, my card at stock will be able to max out all of these new upcoming games. Even watchdogs. Now from the way lmaonade200 is sounding, you wont be able to. But from what I have experienced, this card hasn't had a single problem maxing any game out yet. I don't know about anyone else though. Its not massively overclocked, from my perspective, I guess. My dad has a Tri-X R9 290X and it performs about the same.. His getting about 5-10 more frames in games. Coming from my experience of the card, you shouldn't have a problem, but i can't guarantee it. I don't know what would change my experience from everyone else's though. I don't think it would be my OC.. Correct me if I'm wrong with that though please.

thank you for your help..i don't think the OC will make much a difference .. i'm worried about the Temp. its now summer and my Temp. goes up to 73c and the fan reaches to 58% when playing a game like FM 2014 :D ..imagine if i played a game like bf4 now? :D  how much the temp will be?? ..before weather gets so hot the temp was 69c @ max. when playing bf4.
