SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100269VXLE
SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100269VXLE

Pros: -Fantastically powerful -Stable (in Windows) -Temperature is not an issue (at least in my case) -Great Price for this level of performance

Cons: -Gargantuan Form Factor - Barely fit in my Antec 300 case -ATI Linux Drivers still need work, but development is moving along at an acceptable pace.

Overall Review: I bought this for a machine I was building for my Wife. This is the first ATI card I have ever purchased because for the longest time they offered no Linux support and even went out of their way to hinder the Linux community from creating a usable set of drivers. ATI has since come around to open source and Linux and in a big way so I thought I would give them a try. I am very pleased with this purchase. Plays every game I own at max specs without a hiccup (bear in mind the "heaviest" game I have is "Aion: Tower of Eternity")
