Im looking to get a new video card and saw this on sale at newegg for 199.99.Ive been a sapphire user for years and i know their products are usually top grade but the number of of reviews im seeing about black screen lock ups with this model have me a bit edgy. Is this special card known for lock up issues or is it an issue common to all radeon 7870s.

Yeah. Sapphire are generally reliable. I've been with them for years to. Some people say that to fix the problem they pull the clock speed back a bit, this leads me to believe sapphire shipped them out with unstable overclocks; they usually don't do that but anyone can make mistakes!
