    from completed build My Gaming PC

    I would say that this is the best HD 7970 that you can buy. The problem is; it's a HD 7970. This card is outdated by this point. It doesn't even fully support Freesync. Now it is powerful to run most of the games out today, but it is still showing it's age. When paired with an FX-8120 @ 4.62GHz and when overclocked by 80MHz on the core and 75MHz on the memory, it averages around 50fps in GTA V on a mixture of medium and high settings. While GTA V is horribly optimised for AMD hardware and will perform worse on AMD hardware than it will on Nvidia / Intel hardware that performs the same in every other game, the fact that it can't even push 60fps on medium/high settings is disappointing. You'd do much better with an RX 570 for pretty much the same price.
