I recently bought a sapphire 7870 and i'm pretty happy with it, i can play all recent games on ultra setting + very good performances when i work with photoshop,illustrator,after effects,3ds max and maya.
There was nothing wrong with the card itself, they tested it and said they cannot see anything wrong with it, that it's probably just incompatible. I didnt ask if they mean incompatible with some of my hardware or with photoshop, but one thing I get from this is that AMD are not good at developing their drivers. Just google aticfx.64.dll or aticfx32.dll and you can see a lot of people having problems with a lot of programs and games. Some issues were fixed by updating to the latest drivers, but I tred 12.8, 12.7 and 12.6 and each one causes photoshop to crash.
