As I am a Computer Engineer, I can tell you now that this is the best hardware on the market. And for the person who said look at tomshardware and claims the 8800 Ultra beats this in many games, there is a reason the headline ON tomshardware is "ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 - Fastest Yet!" The 8800 Ultra only beats this card on lower settings, lower resolutions and crappier games. If you look at Crysis, Oblivion, and Unreal Tournament 3 the framrates are higher on the 3870X2 and those are the newest and greatest games. Crysis being the ultimate benchmarking program. Even on Supreme Commander it beats the 8800 Ultra by a good 20fps. This is directly from Tom's Hardware. Besides benchmarks are very biased. I saw a website to try and hide it by competing SLI against a single 3870 and saying the Nvidia's are faster. Not fair. This card is a beast. I can put Crysis on Very High Detail completely smooth at 1680x1050.
It is quite a large Video Card. But if you buy a decent case it's not a problem.
Don't let Nvidia fanboys discourage you from this absolutely wonderful card. Plus ATI always has a better pictur than Nvidia.
