One of the best cards for the money

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 4850 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100273L

Pros: I have this card in crossfire with another 4850, a little over clocking later everything was running smoothly and even better near dead silent, I would defiantly recommend this for anyone making a halfway decent gaming computer, you'll be set with one but if you wanna go above and beyond you'll be back for a second.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Yes it does come with the crossfire bridge shown in the picture, no need to order one separate.

Does its job

Pros: Great camera, if your just getting this for something like Skype it'll suit you perfectly, only thing to keep in mind no matter how good a webcam you buy you have to keep in mind: -high quality webcams aren't magic, if you have a lacking computer you won't get the best out of your videos -yes you can use it to film your kids school project but it's not built for that purpose so don't expect the best results -yes the auto focus has it's occasional ADD moments but as long as you keep yourself under control it'll keep up with you and not focus on the scenery behind you.

Cons: You do have to fight in some programs to get an external mic working but it's more than possible, there are plenty of people on forums willing to prove themselves by explaining how to circumvent these problems.

amazing

Pros: I was looking for an medium to high power card to run with my desktop and this works brilliantly. It can run most games (unless you feel like running Crysis at full or something) Its run Modern Warfare 2 and Stalker Clear sky just fine for me on high graphics settings so it can handle whatever you decide to throw its way

Cons: None

Overall Review: If you have a window on your case, this card even looks good, it's just a ominous black box of power.
