Pros: -Extremely fast card
-Great cooler, keeps temps well under reference board cooler
-Nothing better in price range
Cons: -This is a pretty long card
-Requires a lot of power
Other Thoughts: You will not see a substantial difference between this and the 1GB version at resolutions under 1920x1200(or 1080p if you're using an HDTV). I would save the extra money and save it towards buying Christmas gifts.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Wow. All I can say is wow. I went from an HD4850 Crossfire setup to two of these HD4870's and I'm glad I did. My frames have increased by at least 50%. The price for these cards is just gorgeous. I got them when they were $249.99 with the $40.00 Mail in rebate and free shipping. That price makes it a steal. Make the splurge, put in the extra $100 now and get back $40 in a few months and get a card that's a ton better than that HD4850 or 9800GTX+. This thing also mops the floor with the GT260, 216 Shader cores and all.
Cons: Pink? C'mon. Isn't there another color you could have gone with? Oh well, I guess I can relish in the thought of pwning someone who just made fun of my pink cards. Oh, these cards do get a little toasty, and thus you must run the fan speed up. The fans are a little on the noisy side, but isn't that why they have a volume nob on your speakers/headphones?
Other Thoughts: Thank you Newegg. Ordered this thing on Tuesday, got to me Wednesday. And that was free shipping, too! Thank you Gigabyte for putting such an amazing price tag on a beautiful piece of computer hardware. I guess you could say I'm "egg"sessive =)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This thing is unbelievable. Just running it at stock speed it's very fast, blowing my Athlon 64 X2 5000 BE @ 3.2GHz out of the water. I was able to get a 24/7 OC on this beast at 3.6 GHz(9x400). I don't run it at this speed as it was getting kind of high voltage wise, I'm jsut running it at 3.0 GHz(9x333). If you're looking at this, buy it. You won't regret it.
Cons: It can't walk my dog and take out the trash for me. Just wait another 20 years and we might be seeing this.
Other Thoughts: Thank you intel. You've brought me back to the blue.READ FULL REVIEW
