I built my own PC around 2011, and did a lot of research on parts. I ended up finding this guy for a great price plus a rebate, and went for it. It wasn't a hard decision comparing a video card of this price range to others of it's type. The radeon HD 5870 had higher benchmarks in FPS rates for a lot of categories. It's comparable to the 470 series of GTX nvidia cards, and honestly I feel it works better. No problems so far, quality graphics, and no integrated sound card.
