SAPPHIRE HD 4000 Radeon HD 4870 DirectX 10.1 100259L 512MB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • 512MB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 750 MHz
  • 2 x DVI 1 x HDMI (via Adapter)
  • 800 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 2.0 x16

Pros:

It's a very quiet card at idle. Idles at 53C in a very cramped case, could barely fit the power cable. Load is at 75C with the duty cycle barely even reaching 50%. That means it's very quiet during load too.

Cons:

With Furmark burn-in, the GPU reaches 100C! No games pushes the card past 80C, I guess it's just specific to Furmark.

Only 512MB, which will be nothing in a few years. Get the 1GB version if you can, even though it only gives you a 5% performance boost, the large frame buffer will be more future proof.

Other Thoughts:

It's a great buy if you can find it under $130. I recommend looking around bargain sites.
