Unreal product! I used to swear by Ati hands down but during the past few years (since the 9700, 9800 pro and the X850) Ati has had many struggles. I had to run Nvidia during that time (Evga 7950 GT KO, 8800 GT) I am glad to be back writing a review for Ati that is a postive review. I bought 2 of these card from Sapphire and I am very pleased with the picture mostly. I have a buddy down the road that has 2, 9800GTX+ that was happy to big his rig up to compare side by side, and without a doubt Ati has the better picture. Not saying the frame rate is higher, but after 40 fps your eyes cant tell the difference its all about quality at that point.


Heat seems a bit higher in my case than his. About 9 degrees. Not a real issue though I have the important things like the processor liquid cooled so its not affected by the ambient temp.

Other Thoughts:

I spent 2 grand on this system and I am very happy with the build. Phenom 9950 (125 watt) 8 gig Patriot extreme 1066, MSI K9A2 Platinum, 2 Sapphire 4870's 1 GIG, 1 Tera Seagate, 500 GIG Seagate, 250 GIG Seagate, 800 Watt Xion Lan Party Power Supply, Thermaltake Water cooling for processor. Man I spent a ton, but it was worth it!
