SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4870 DirectX 10.1 100259-1GL 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 750 MHz
  • 2 x DVI 1 x HDMI (via Adapter)
  • 800 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 2.0 x16

Pros:

Fast, fast, fast. I had no problems maxing out COD4 with a large res. Handles anything you throw at it. I had no issues with the temperatures either. Mine averaged between 46-48*C idle and max at 62*C I don't normally play my games at max all the time. Just like to get a bit of eye candy once in a while though. I never checked my temps while running max.

Cons:

Can be a slight PITA to install because of the size, and location of the power supplies depending on your case design.

Other Thoughts:

The card I got was defective. Kept crashing my games and was artifacting a lot. After reading a bit on forums, seems like it's hit and miss with getting a defective card. As long as you get a good one it's a dang fine card. I returned mine in hopes of getting one that isn't defective. Overall though it's a nice performing card for the money =)
