This review is from: VisionTek 400326 Radeon HD 3870 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Pros: While this is not current technology, it was a good match for an older, "2nd tier" gaming system that I needed an inexpensive video card for. Drawing only about 110W peak, I didn't need to upgrade the existing PSU. Uses current AMD drivers. Heatsink on VRMs, and "solid" polymer capacitors. Fan is barely audible.
Cons: Only a con *if* you have your heart set on the pictured heatsink and fan. Mine had the shroud and blower arrangement that exhausts through the rear of the card. Massive copper heatsink with two heat pipes, and heatsink contacts RAM, a plus. (See the VisionTek HD3850 for visuals.) Personally, I prefer this design.
Other Thoughts: NOTE: Cards are *not* described accurately.
